The sights, sounds, and history of Marrakech are intoxicating, but after a while, the Medina can come to seem a bit cramped and crowded. If you're looking to get out of the chaos for a bit, a camel ride may be just the ticket. Just a short way out of the city centre of Marrakech is open skies, graceful palm groves and authentic, welcoming Berber villages.
Your camel ride kicks off with an afternoon or morning 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.
By taking a camel ride day trip from Marrakech, you can learn how to mount and ride a camel while wearing the traditional protective scarf of desert travellers. And then off you go to see a part of Moroccan life that dates back centuries and gives you a whole new perspective on your Marrakech experience.
