Full description
Escape the bustling souks, streets and palaces of Marrakech, and climb on the back of a camel to ride through the beautiful Palmeraie on the outskirts of the city. Although the real desert is too far from the city center, about 20 minutes drive away lies an oasis of manicured gardens, sweet-scented orange trees and palm groves that make ideal terrain for a spot of light camel riding. A driver will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to meet the camel handlers and their trusty beasts. They will then guide you into the Palmeraie and on through authentic villages and green palm groves. Discover how the locals live outside the city center. And end with a fresh mint tea in a typical nomadic tent.

The five of us really enjoyed our camel ride. We still haven’t stopped talking about it and every time we look at the photos it makes us smile some more. We were collected from our hotel and dropped back which was great and our guide who led us round was friendly and helpful taking lots of photos for us. The camels were lovely too. We finished the trip with Moroccan tea.

An unforgettable experience. We were picked up neatly at the agreed time, in a luxury taxi van. The driver drove very experienced and polite, without endangering us. When we got there we were warmly welcomed. We were given cloths to protect us from the sun and to complete the picture. The guide was very cheerful and pleasant to talk to. He managed to entertain us during the ride. He also woven a camel from palm leaves for both of us, an unforgettable memento to take home. After the ride, which went very well, we got a cup of tea and the chance to see the other camels. If we ever come back to Marrakech, this is definitely worth repeating!

The camel ride experience was awesome.Ee got picked up on time and arriver there earlier than expected.I was afraid once on the camel but the gentleman who took us for the ride was very reassuring and by the time it was over I felt very confident. We were happy with the service and will give it 5 stars.
