Full description
Discover the vast and rugged Palm Grove and Rock Desert of Marrakech from a unique perspective: the back of a Malian camel.

Don a traditional cheich (protective turban veil) and ride through authentic villages and green palm groves, where you will get to observe how the locals outside the Marrakech city center live.

Along the way, stop for a break to enjoy sips of lovely mint tea, surrounded by the unique landscape of sand, palm trees, and grass.

The transport organised was extremely poor. They did not know where to pick us up and I had to sit squashed up in the back. The driver did not speak to anyone in the car. Very rude. However once we arrived everything was excellent the guide and trip was amazing and all the staff was excellent! Would highly recommend. I would also suggest that they should have a gift shop.

We had an enjoyable family experience on our camel ride. The guides, especially talking with Yassine, made this mini adventure all the more enjoyable. If you’re looking for an easy half day trip with kids, this fits the bill. Note: you will see plenty of quad bikes zipping around the rocky desert.

We opted for the afternoon package, and it was fantastic! Our two guides, Yassine and Hicham have been wonderful! Nice and they entertained us all the time! The camels were docile and the environment really suggestive, we made a stop for a tea and seeing the preparation from a local Azian was really nice! Highly recommended!
