You don’t have to travel all day to the Sahara to ride a camel. An official camel designated trail exists in the High Atlas Mountains, just an hour from Marrakech. On this trip, you’ll ride a camel for two hours from Moulay Brahim to old Asni, passing Berber villages and always with a spectacular backdrop of High Atlas peaks. There will be plenty of time for some fun photos along the way and a chance to get to know your camel well!
The camel, known as the ‘ship of the desert’ is a remarkable animal. It provides us with a fun and relaxing way to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Atlas Mountains. Once you've got used to the motion of the ride, you’ll head deeper into the Atlas Mountains to enjoy a well-earned lunch at Kasbah Africa, with sweeping views of High Atlas peaks above, and the Azzaden River Valley below. Here you’ll learn about traditional Berber life and have the option of a walk in the valley to a nearby village before returning to Marrakech.
Take your swimming costume as Kasbah Africa has an outdoor pool. This family-friendly day trip can be tailored, on demand, to suit you and your parties tastes for exploration and adventure.
