Please, help me with this sentence "The caravan moved A camel after THE camel" or should I write "A camel after A camel"? Because the caravan just appeared in the distance for the first time in the narrative.

Hi, Windward—I'd need to see the sentence in its written context to advise you on whether to use "a" or "the" here; however, my best guess is that you are trying to say, "The caravan moved one camel after the other" or "The caravan moved one camel after another."

It is a translation. I would like to know is it possible to use a phrase like 'A camel after the (or A) camel' exactly instead of 'one after another'?

Why don't you want to use "one after another"?
