Full description
Get picked up in the afternoon at your hotel in Marrakech. Meet your driver and buckle up for a short comfortable ride. Your first stop will be at a traditional Berber house, where you will sit for mint tea with the family and learn about their lives, history, and customs. Afterwards, head to the Palmeraie, a palm oasis with several hundred thousand palm trees located outside the city. Meet your camel when you arrive at the lush palm grove and learn the correct way to ride him or her. You will also learn more about the important relationship between Moroccans and their camels from your guide as you saunter into the grove. Enjoy the view of the sun setting across the horizon while riding your camel through the palm trees and desert shrubs. Remember to bring your camera to snap the beautiful unique sunset. Get dropped off back at your hotel after your ride has finished.

    Good fun. Picked up on time. Short drive of 15-20 minutes to meeting point for Dromedaries. Mine was Zizzu. We all wore wrap turbans and a colourful tunic. The team running the small group were all very friendly and attentive (particularly when getting on and off to make sure everyone got on safely). The main guy could not have tried harder to make sure we all had as many photos as we wanted.

    As soon as we entered this location we thought "what a rip off", given that being in a place where cars pass and therefore does not give the impression of a desert. Once we got there we changed our mind as the camel ride was pleasant as was the tea time in the Berber house. The sunset is something unique. What they describe on the tour is true. Experience to do.
