Discover Marrakech’s verdant oasis from the top of the red city during the sunset and using a camel ride through the Palmeraie, a huge palm grove a short drive from the city. After you picked up to your Marrakech hotel or riad, you’ll visit a Berber traditional house and discover their cultures while having mint tea with the family, then get back to the Palmeraie to enjoy a scenic camel ride experience. This small-group tour is limited; it is only for seven people in order to ensure that you have a pleasant experience during the home visit and your camel ride.
Your camel ride kicks off with an afternoon pickup at your hotel in Marrakech. Meet your driver and buckle up for a short comfortable ride. First we stop at a traditional Berber house, where you will sit for mint tea with the family and learn about their lives, history and customs.
Afterwards you will take the minivan back to the Palmeraie. Meet your camel when you arrive at the lush palm grove and learn the correct way to ride yours. These majestic desert animals have been used by Moroccans for centuries as a way to get across vast stretches of arid land. Learn about the important relationship between Moroccans and camels from your guide as you saunter into the grove.
Enjoy the view while riding your camel through the palm trees and desert shrubs. Remember to bring your camera to snap the beautiful unique sunset. When your ride is done, you will travel back to your hotel in Marrakech.
