Frequently Asked Questions

Abrams D – Nov 2021:

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.

Jessica A – Sep 2021:

We had a great time on the camel ride, and everyone was friendly and helpful. Ali, our driver, even taught us some fascinating information on our route to the camel ride and back, and also dropped us off in a different location when we requested him to.

Peter A – Sep 2021:

Excellent camel ride in the beautiful Palmeraie - excellent value for money for such a good camel ride! Very well organized - the driver arrives on time and there is good information regarding the pick-up location. It was a lovely way to begin our journey in Morocco.
