Full description
Departure Marrakech on a small group tour, and experience the green oasis of the Palmeraie from the top of a camel. Located on the fringes of the city, the Marrakech Palmeraie is the perfect place for a scenic camel ride and to watch the sunset at the end of the day. Get an introduction to your camel and learn how these hardy animals have been used as transport in Morocco for centuries thanks to their ability to travel long distances without water. After a safety briefing, put on the provided nomadic costume, including a sheish (turban) to protect you from the sun. Then, climb into the saddle and ride through the verdant palm grove for 30 minutes. Stop at a Berber house to experience the everyday life of the local people, and get a welcome snack and mint tea. Then, it's on your camel again to experience a beautiful sunset as the sky changes color through the trees. Once your ride is complete, travel back to Marrakech city center and get dropped off at your original pick-up point.

We had a blast!

Our tour guides picked us up on time, gave us some water and talked about the history of where we were going. The camel ride was so fun and the stop for some snacks and tea were delicious. The sunset was spectacular and our camels seemed happy to carry us around. Such a fun experience. Thank you again!!

Highly recommend this excursion, pick up was on time and at the agreed location the driver was pleasant and informative, we were picked up in an air conditioned van and in total there were 7 in the group, the camel ride itself was a brilliant experience and the sunset was amazing I took so many great photos to remind us of the tour. After the tour we were provided with water and dropped back to our Riad, no hassles with upselling or side excursions, great trip for those looking for a different experience and time poor thanks A+++
