Marrakech Camel Ride Program

Meet your driver in Marrakech and then leave for a short ride (about 30 minutes) to the Northern Palmeraie area of Marrakech.

Upon arrival, your camel guide will greet you, and inform you about the rules of riding a camel, as well as the safety rules. Once you are dressed as a nomad (outfits provided), feel free to ask your guide or camel driver to take pictures of the whole family or group of friends atop the camels.

Start your camel ride in the prestigious Palmeraie district full of date palms and some of the mansions of the rich celebrities who have chosen Marrakech as their second home.

After an hour's ride on a camel (which will surely be enough as riding a camel is not the most comfortable experience), meet your driver and return to the city center for a drop off at a location of your choice.

  • Pick-up at 9:00 am or 2:00 pm from your place of residence in Marrakech, hotel or Riad.
  • Arrival at the palm grove preparation and camel ride for 1 hour.
  • Visit of a women's cooperative of argan oil.
  • Tea break and Moroccan pancakes planned.
  • Return to your place of residence after the stroll.

Marrakech Camel Ride Description

On the occasion of your stay in Marrakech, do not miss a half-day activity to discover the ancestral life of caravaneers.

This one hour camel ride in the desert of the Palmeraie of Marrakech will allow you to find the tranquility of the desert, and enjoy a break away from the rush of the red city. If riding a camel has always been on your bucket list, then this Marrakech camel trek activity will! Nothing can replace the view of the Marrakech Palmeraie on the back of your camel as it takes you through the desert, palm groves and Berber villages.

This activity will not only give you the chance to enjoy a camel ride, but it will also allow you to discover the particular way of life of the indigenous population: the Berbers.

This camel ride in Marrakech will be the icing on the cake of your visit to Marrakech, as you will return home with many good memories to keep for life.

Upon your arrival, your guide will suggest that you put on a gandoura and tie the shesh of the Tuaregs before getting on the saddle.

During this camel ride, you will walk along the palm grove while admiring the beauty of the landscape, from the high centenary palm trees to the snowy mountain of the atlas in the distance.

An invitation to taste the typical local tea will be the right moment for a gourmet break; an immersion in the Moroccan culture and its attributes.

The caravan will resume its journey as peacefully and stops will be planned to immortalize this unique and magical moment.

You can also ask to benefit from this activity at the end of the afternoon, you will then be able to contemplate a sunset in the palm grove as magnificent as magical.

This camel activity will leave you with the memory of an exceptional moment, a journey into the past rich with traditions of the past.

When I came to Marrakech, I didn't think about participating in the desert tour. I was only curious to do it. Marrakech excursion helped us with everything before the tour, gave us advice. After seeing the atmosphere and the friendships, I was really mesmerized. I have too many memories, they are unforgettable. If you can't decide to go on the trip like me, try Marrakech excursion. I'm sure it will help you decide.

This tour company was very organised, friendly and accommodating. They managed to arrange a sunset camel ride in the desert and an exciting quad bike experience. The groups they take into the desert are small, around 10 maximum (unlike some operators who take around 30). The prices are excellent and the value for money is excellent. They have a wide range of different excursions that they organise. I would definitely recommend Mohamed and his team to my friends and family!
