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.

great ride

Great camel ride. Hassan is great as a guide and as a photographer. He loves his camels, it shows. We made several camel rides during our stay with different organizations. This center is the best and the animals are well treated there, which is not the case everywhere. I recommend it with my eyes closed.
