While the sights, sounds, and history of Marrakech are intoxicating, the wide open skies, graceful palm groves, and authentic Berber villages of the countryside make for a welcome escape best experienced the traditional way: by camel! Here’s what you need to know.
- Trade the chaos of the medina for a relaxed exploration of the rural Moroccan countryside.
- Learn how to mount and ride a camel, while wearing the traditional protective scarf of Morocco’s desert dwellers.
- Enjoy a sunset ride through a scenic palm grove.
- Sip a warm glass of mint tea at the home of a local Berber family.
A quintessential Marrakech experience, a sunset camel ride can be combined with other activities to make the most of your time in Morocco. Afterward, take an adrenaline-fueled quad bike tour of the deserts outside the city, or begin your day with a stroll through the serene Majorelle Garden before heading to the Palmeraie for your camel ride.
