Discover the captivating charm of Marrakech with an extraordinary camel ride adventure during your inaugural trip. Immerse yourself in the desert landscape, once frequented by trading caravans, within the city's grandeur. If you cannot spare three or four days for a deep Sahara expedition, then a camel ride in the Marrakech palm grove is an excellent alternative.
The palm grove, also known as La Palmeraie, is situated just beyond Marrakech's borders and spans a vast area of 54 square miles. This verdant oasis hosts over 100,000 palm trees that offer a refreshing shade against the African heat. Embark on this distinctive journey at dawn, late afternoon, or opt for an evening ride to encounter an authentic Moroccan adventure. Notably, the late afternoon rides guarantee stunning views of the spectacular sunsets that grace the paths of this idyllic haven.
Your memorable journey begins at your doorstep with a convenient pickup from your Marrakech hotel or Riad. We will transport you to the excursion's starting point, nestled in the palm grove's heart. Safety is our priority, so before you saddle up, we'll brief you on the correct and safe way to ride a camel. We'll also provide you with a traditional 'cheich', a turban-like veil that offers protection against the sun.
As you journey through local villages, you will glimpse the culture and lifestyle of the locals residing on the city outskirts. The vast palm grove unfurls before you, with the snow-capped High Atlas mountains providing a stunning backdrop. You'll pause to visit a traditional Berber household. Embrace the opportunity to enjoy the famed hospitality of a Berber family as they serve you refreshing mint tea. Subsequently, your exploration resumes.
Your Marrakech camel riding adventure concludes at the journey's starting point. From here, our guides will escort you back to the comfort of your accommodation.
