Full description

Get ready to go on a sunset camel ride adventure. After a pickup from your Marrakech hotel or riad, head north to the Palmeraie, a picturesque palm grove on the fringes of the city, to meet your camel caravan.

Be shown to your camel and learn how these hardy desert animals have been used for transport in Morocco for centuries, thanks to their ability to travel long distances without water. After a safety briefing, wear your Nomad dress with the shesh (turban) and climb into the saddle on the back of a camel. Relax as you enjoy a 1-hour ride through lush palm trees. Take your camera out to snap some photos of the beautiful sunset as the sky changes colors through the palms trees. After your approximate 1-hour ride, be driven back to your hotel where your experience ends.

So much fun!! The driver picked us up right outside our Riad. He also rearranged so that we weren't caught in a thunderstorm! The camels were really friendly and clearly well looked after (you could see the camels that weren't 'on duty' roaming freely and the baby camels were allowed to come along with their mothers!). The guides were so welcoming, and took loads of photos for us so we could remember the experience.

Wir wurden überpünktlich abgeholt und sind anschließend 5 Minuten zur Palmerie gefahren. Dort ging es auch direkt los. Wir waren zu zweit was sehr angenehm war. Zum Schluss haben wir noch ein Tee erhalten und haben uns kurz unterhalten. Der Guide war sehr nett und hat uns sogar gezeigt wo man den Tee kaufen kann. Eine super entspannte Tour!!
