We decided to try this out on a whim, and it turned out to be an absolute blast. It’s more about having a good time than anything else. They pick you up right from your hotel and make sure everything runs on schedule. The drive takes about 20 minutes, taking you just outside Marrakech. Here’s where the fun begins – they get you all dressed up in a blue shirt and a matching blue head wrap (trust me, it’s pretty amusing). Once you’re decked out, you embark on a camel ride that lasts for around an hour. And yes, it’s as entertaining as it sounds. To top it off, they treat you to some tea at the end – a nice little touch. For the price of 25€, this experience is an absolute steal. Imagine being able to proudly say you’ve ridden a camel and collected a bunch of hilarious photos along the way. The best part? The staff, as well as the camels, are incredibly friendly and make the whole adventure even more enjoyable. So, if you’re in the mood for a fun, affordable, and unforgettable adventure, this is something you won’t want to miss out on!

My friend and I had such a great time with the camel ride and the pickup service. The staff members were incredibly kind and paid a lot of attention to us throughout the experience. Even though we were a bit nervous at first, they quickly put us at ease by assuring us that we were in for a good time – and they were absolutely right! This activity is definitely something you shouldn’t miss when you’re in Marrakesh. They even offered to take plenty of pictures for us, which means we now have these incredible memories captured forever. Big thanks to everyone involved!

What a fantastic experience! Everything was perfect, even with my 2-year-old son. The extra touch of a little gift (braiding) was a wonderful bonus. A huge thank you to the entire team!

We had a wonderful day after being picked up from our hotel by Brahim in a clean, comfy 8-seater. We were outfitted in local attire when we arrived at the Palmeraie and were assisted on to the camels. We are neither young nor fit, yet we had no trouble climbing on or riding the camels; in fact, being taken through the palm trees was rather a bit relaxing. I really suggest it to both young and old people.
