Begin with pickup at your Marrakech accommodations, and travel to the edge of the city in a private car with onboard Wi-Fi and air conditioning. Watch houses and cars give way to a rolling, desert landscape as you reach the Palmeraie, where more than 100,000 date palms are nourished by artesian wells and reservoirs. Legend has it that ancient Arab warriors planted the groves when they spit date seeds into holes made by their lances, but the Palmeraie was created by Berber Almoravid kings in the 11th century.
Meet your camel, then learn the basics of mounting, riding, and steering. This is the traditional way of traveling through the Moroccan desert, and the camel’s distinctive, swaying walk sets a rhythmic pace as you explore the Palmeraie landscape. At the end of the ride, cool off with mineral water and a sweet snack. This tour concludes with return transfer to your Marrakech accommodations.
