What You Can Expect

Begin this tour with pickup at your Marrakech accommodations—if your hotel is in the old city, simply meet the driver at the closest point that’s accessible by vehicle. On your way out of Marrakech, stop at a traditional Berber house for a glass of mint tea, an important symbol of Moroccan hospitality and culture.

Continue into the Palmeraie, an oasis that sprawls 54 square miles (140 square km.) from the edge of the city, filled with date palm groves, elegant homes, resorts, and traditional communities. Take in views of spiky palm groves and the low-lying vegetation as the sun goes down, and enjoy the rhythmic, swaying gait of your camel. At the end of a 1-hour ride, say goodbye to your camel and meet the driver for the return trip to your Marrakech accommodations.

Note: To ensure that your group is able to ride together, we suggest signing up all members in a single booking.

We had already done a small camel ride the day before which was quite uncomfortable so were apprehensive. However the camels on this trip were a lot more comfortable and were in better condition. We were able to get fantastic photos and the scenery was great. The sunset was timed well and some baby camels followed us as one of my friends was on the mother camel. It was great to see them come running every time the mother called.

Our family of 5 adults ages 62 - 28 thoroughly enjoyed the sunset camel ride. The evening temperatures were perfect and the stop for mint tea in the picturesque village was fun. We got lots of great pictures and had some laughs with the two guides who went with our camel train. We did see someone fall off a camel and I would caution you to be careful taking photos and make sure you hang on at all times. The guides are willing to take photos for you. The scenery is not spectacular but we saw dates ripening on trees and heard some interesting bird calls. I would recommend not taking backpacks or any large bags with you and there's no need to take water. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Marrakech.

WARNING: be very careful when booking this camel ride. What Viator doesn't tell you is that it works with multiple camel ride operators and it's a toss up on who you will get it. Therefore, if everyone in your group books separately, there is a HIGH chance that you will be on multiple different tours. This is what happened to us. Luckily, Sunset Camel Tours was able to work things out with the 2 other camel operators that we were randomly placed in. So in the end all 8 of us were able to be on one tour.

Sunset Camel Tours was amazing! They dressed us up in typical Moroccan clothes and took us around the Palm Grove. The tour guides were so friendly and made us cute camel shaped souvenirs made out of palm tree leaves. And they really love their camels! I saw one playing and rubbing his head against one while we were walking up to them. Then they took us to a typical Berber house where they were super gracious and gave us tea and pastries!!! This is seriously a must do experience when you come to Marrakech!! And the sunset was so beautiful in the Palm Grove and since the sun was going down, it wasn't that hot outside either which was a HUGE blessing during the middle of summer in Marrakech! I would definitely recommend it but make sure to ask for the Sunset Camel Tours because they are amazing and made our tour one of the highlights of our trip!

This tour is the best way to truly experience a Morrocan sunset. The staff were very friendly and made sure we got all the pictures we needed from our adventure. This was a great way to finish our stay in Marrakesh and I highly recommend it for those who want a memorable moment in Morroco.

Very helpful and polite guides.
Camel ride is a must I guess for tourists.
You get to wear local clothes and turban provided by the guides.

I would change the village visit a bit.
Its a bit dirty and there is no meeting with locals personally I wouldnt blame them with all these tourists!

Generally good experience

This was an interesting experience. We drove past numerous stopping points where camels were waiting for rides and finally came across ours. The drive was approx 20-25mins and we were dropped off and dressed up in Turbans/ Kaftans straight away for a photo. We waited only for about 5-10mins for our camels Olivia and Shakira who were both pregnant. It was lovely watching the babies walk freely alongside their mothers. We got on board and headed out into the Palm Groves with our guide, it was lovely just being my friend and I. Unfortunately it was very over cast so no sunset. I was not expecting to feel so saddle sore after 20- 30minutes of riding a camel! We then stopped in a little berber village and was given Moroccan Tea with cookies! we then got back on our camels and headed back to the start where our drivers waited for us. Excursion done in 2 hours!! An enjoyable experience and definitely worth doing once.
