Full description
What could be better than a camel ride through the Agafay Desert with the impending sunset? Immerse yourself in a beauty you'll never forget. Set off toward a quiet part of the desert which is filled with beautiful hills that go as far as the horizon.  Get picked up from your hotel in Marrakech and head toward the desert with a driver and team. Hear about how the camels are extraordinarily adapted to desert life on the drive over. An instructor will be there to offer advice and get you set up. Take in the magnificent scenery as you hop on top of these lovely creatures.  Pause for a while and enjoy the serenity of the sunset and the magic of the desert caravans, which once passed through these same paths between the Sahara and the Atlantic. Real Moroccan snacks and tea, coupled with Berber hospitality in a shaded local home await you at the end of your ride. You and your loved one, your family, or a group of friends will love this activity, spent in the company of a long-trusted local crew.

Fantastic private tour with a lovely and accommodating guide. Beautiful views of the desert with lovely sunset views. Our guide took lots of pictures of us on our phones whilst on the camels and after the ride was over, he took pictures of us standing with the camels and in front of the sunset. Definitely worth the money paid. Everyone was lovely. Transfer was on time and prompt

I really enjoyed this experience! I would note that, while 1.5 hours is listed in the ad for this excursion, that seems to be starting from when you actually arrive on site. From Marrakech, it's about 3 hours total (nearly 1.5 hours commuting round trip, 1.5 for the camel riding and tea). Lots of fun, highly recommend!

I cannot put into words how perfect this was. I don't care what any other review says; this is a must. Achmed and Youssif (brothers) were marvelous companions. Youssif had me singing, then took some of the best pictures I've gotten on my entire visit. Sayed and Aladeen, guide and driver, made it so I didn't have to figure anything out. The views, the peaceful feeling of riding a camel, and the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Book this now; you will be glad that you did.
