Full description
Discover life in Moroccan caravans and nomad camps on a one-day tour with overnight. Explore the regions surrounding Essaouira and Diabat. Climb aboard a dromedary for a three-hour tour past the Oued River, the sandy beaches opposite the island of Mogador, and the ruins of the Black Sultan's Palace. 

Cross the forest filled with thuya, mimosa, and eucalyptus to reach the large Omar dunes and a small fishing village. After a break near a fresh water spring, where free-range cows drink, return to Ranch de Diabat. Travel then by car to the Berber camp, situated about 30 minutes from the ranch within a picturesque landscape.

Upon arrival, you'll be greeted with traditional mint tea and Moroccan pastries to enjoy under the tent equipped with mattresses and low tables. Settle into the wonderful location right by the sea, among beaches and cliffs, before witnessing the beautiful sunset from the camp.

For dinner, the chef will serve an authentic Moroccan meal including a meat, fish, or vegetable tagine, Beldi bread, and seasonal fruit. At bedtime, get comfortable in your tent in the heart of Souirie nature.

The next morning, wake for a Moroccan breakfast of bread, cheese, orange juice, coffee, milk, and tea. Drive back to the ranch where you will have the opportunity to take a shower. Conclude the tour with hotel drop-off in Essaouira.
