8. From Essaouira: Diabat Camel Tour with Overnight Tent Stay
Explore the area, nature and landscape around Essaouira on the back of a dromedary.
The ride passes relaxed, stress-free and ecological over the endless beaches south of Diabat, by fishermen's huts and by the large dunes; at low tide you can see freshwater springs in the sand where cows and donkeys drink; crossing the mimosa and Tuja forest.
A leisure activity for young and old; suitable for children and seniors. Ideal for the whole family.
A journey to the rhythm of the quiet step of the dromedaries, with these lovable animals,
in a caravan, as the Berber people did for thousands of years.
Just a few minutes from Essaouira, the ride begins in Diabat, then you reach the dunes where the ancient palace of the Black Sultan is hidden; you roam the long beach, with a view of the Portuguese castle on the island of Mogador; you climb up and down the dunes and pass by fishermen.
Around noon, a break is taken, in a shady place sheltered from the wind, and there will be picnic lunch, that the dromedaries carried in their saddlebags.
The way back to Diabat is through a small path in the heart of the forest.
The dromedary is a calm animal, friendly to everyone and will allow a pleasant time with family or friends.
From Diabat the participants will be transported to our Berber camp by car.
A typical mint tea and Moroccan pastries are already waiting there.
Since our bivouac is located on the beach, in the evening you can watch how the sun sinks into the sea and the dark blue sky is slowly illuminated by countless stars.
Our cook serves a typical Moroccan dinner, prepared directly on site from fresh ingredients, which is eaten in front of the tent.
The evening ends with a campfire, traditionally told stories, drum sounds and possibly singing.
After a restful night in the Berber tent, the next morning we will have a rich breakfast before our driver takes the participants back to Diabat by car.
