Camel Ride Marrakech (1/2 day)

Half Day Camel Trek – Palm Grove of the Caravanes













If you are feeling active and fancy a change of scenery away from the bustling souks, shops, palaces and museums of Marrakech, why not consider a camel ride through the beautiful Palmeraie of Marrakech?

Kids and adults alike can enjoy camel riding just a few minutes’ drive from Marrakech. Camels, known as the ‘ships of the desert’ are remarkable animals and offer a relaxing way to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Palmeraie in the palm groves of Marrakech. Once you’ve found your balance and got used to the very rhythmic motion a camel makes, you’ll enjoy a break for mint tea. There will be plenty of time for some fun photos and a chance to get to know your camel well! Transfers from and back to your hotel or riad are included in the price.
