Camel market

Goulimime, Morocco

Goulimime, Morocco

For many visitors to countries like Morocco, the concept of a camel market is enough to get them out of comfortable hotel beds at sunrise. In many cases, camel markets have therefore become designed according to tourist demands, and it is questionable whether some of them would remain were it not for the extra revenue generated by this. Finding the real thing is quite hard.
The camel market in Goulimime is relying on local needs, here camels are sold for real, the finest for breeding, the most miserable are sold by the pound to butchers. In Goulimime, camel meat is bought in a butcher's and brought to a restaurant to be prepared.
