Full description

Discover life in Moroccan caravans and nomad camps on a one-day tour 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 freshwater 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 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.

Moustapha was an excellent guide and photographer. Lover of animals, he treats them with great gentleness like an orchestra conductor. Very nice walk in the middle of the ruins, the dunes and at the edge of the raging ocean. Then departure for the bivouac an excellent meal awaited us as well as dogs, donkeys, camels and their babies. The Berber tents are spacious and the sleeping bags very clean. We were able to watch a splendid sunset and fall asleep to the rhythm of the ocean waves. A great experience not to be missed

We left at 2 pm the of the wonderful creatures, the dromedaries, of which I had only heard stories .. exciting! It seems to descend into another era .. Aladdin, sultan, timbuktu and many other dromedaries guided with love by Mustafa, who is really able to communicate with them with kindness. And then an overnight stay in a fabulous Berber tent by the sea, with a breathtaking sunset right in front of us, tasting green tea and biscuits AND again a typical Moroccan dinner in front of the fire, with the tales of Mustafa What can I say, a beautiful experience ! Ps bring a pajama because despite the nice blankets, in the tent you need!
