    We were unsure about a camel ride at all, as we didn’t want to see any animals being mistreated or badly kept. But we were reassured by reviews and decided to go for a one-hour ride. It was an excellent choice and we had a great time. We didn’t see any evidence at all of bad treatment. As it was only an hour trip, the scenery wasn’t very inspiring, but we did get down to the beach. The guide was good at taking photos and we were offered mint tea back at the stables.

We booked an one-hour-tour and our guide was Mustafa. He dealt with the animals in a lovely way and told us a lot in this hour. We felt very welcome all the time and the ride to the beach in the morning was wonderful. We can totally recommend Ranch de Diabat.

Mr. Moustafa welcomed us very well, he has a crazy talent. He takes care of his camels with love. They understand it at a sign or a glance. 1h wonderful with extraordinary views. He also took photos like that of a postcard.

Great landscape with a great guide, who also has to be a photographer, so great pictures were taken. Everything is very professional and well organized. The dromedaries look very neat and relaxed. I can fully recommend it.

everything went great! The guide was super friendly. It was an interesting experience
