      Hi Ursula, always welcome. My pleasure to share knowledge regarding the camel and its habitat. You can find easily the plant of Prosopis (known as Ghaf in Arabic) from a local nursery there. If you want to see places, desert, and camels here in Alain, you are welcome and then we can see for this plant also.
      My best regards
