What You Can Expect

Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech

Follow your guide on your hour-long camel trek in Marrakech

Begin your experience with a pickup from your central Marrakech hotel. Meet your friendly driver, hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle with the rest of your small group, and set off for your first destination — a traditional Berber home.

Be welcomed by the friendly family who live in the house, and sit down for a delicious, freshly brewed mint tea — a staple in Morocco. As you sip, chat to the family members about their daily lives and the customs they follow.

Next, return to your vehicle and drive to the Palmeraie, a picturesque palm grove on the fringes of the city. 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, climb into the saddle on the back of the camel and relax as you enjoy a ride through the verdant palms and sands. Take photos of the views as the sun descends through the sky and absorb the serenity of the surroundings as you saunter through the grounds.

After your approximate 1-hour ride, drive back to your hotel where your experience ends.

What an amazing and fun experience! Our tour guide, Jamal, was so accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. Hamza, our guide for the camel ride, taught us about the camels and the Berber people. We visited a Berber family to see how they lived. They were so hospitable, kind and generous. This was a fabulous experience and the professionalism and care that we received from Jamal and Hamza made all the difference!

Ten stars! Jamal was a genuine, honest, safe driver and a gentleman. Ismail was an outstanding camel guide and leader, really funny with an infectious smile and personality. Both had terrific sense of humors and were good guys - highly trustworthy. Due to them, Morocco redeemed itself. This experience was one of the best highlights of my life. I highly recommend this adventure, and would request Jamal and Ismail - they made it what it was.

This was a great time and the 2 guides as well the Berber gentleman that took us into his home was so nice. The guides were entertaining to say the least, at one point they had us singing Hello from Adel! The only negative not their fault is that the Palm Grove had lots of areas where there that appeared to be trash dumps, the photo was slightly miss leading as I thought we were going to actually be closer to the desert, but all in all it was worth the time and money. Loved my camel Victoria

It was an amazing tour. The guys Jamal and i forgot the other's name were so accommodating. The tour was great. the view's the ride and the atmosphere was awesome! The berber home we went to for tea and bread was amazing. It got me immersed in the true culture or morocco. The driver was prompt and on time in the meeting location. Transportation was not an issue and not much of a language barrier.

Highlights
took 4 tours, but these were the best guides
great for both adults and kids
camels so well behaved, not a single issue
insight into local life, visiting a Berber house whilst our guide fielded our chat with a Berber house wife and young child!
door to door pick up drop off
language wasnt an issue, perfect English spoken
great communication to arrange pick up time
I took 4 separate tours on my trip but this one had the best guides! Our first guide Jamal picked us up along with the driver at our hotel reception and led us into the beautiful palm groves. He spoke fluent natural English and answered all our questions about Marrakech, Morocco and defenders in the premier league! Then our guide leading the camels was a law student! Again flawless English and was great with the kids, making jokes about what the camels eat McDonalds and pranking by grabbing legs like it was a camel biting. We rode through the palm groves for 45 mins before a mint tea/ pancake break and then 45 mins back to base as the sun set! Picked up at 18:10 and dropped off 9ish
