You may feel uncomfortable if you ride the camel for the first time, but it is not that difficult to learn. You will pick up the skill pretty quickly.
Be sure to wear full and loose clothes on your camel ride, especially in the desert. If you want to wear shorts, long shorts are recommended. Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and comfortable shoes are also advised to make your camel ride more comfortable.
Children can ride camels in the Palmeraie. Children under 12 are highly advised to ride camels with an adult.
Usually, one adult and a child can ride a camel comfortably. BUT, on rare occasions, two adults can ride a camel at a time, depending on their gross weight. An average adult camel can carry 150Kg (330lbs) comfortably.
There is no time limit to riding a camel. Camels can travel all day carrying heavy weight. However, the camel ride is mainly bumpy, and an average person would resist up to an hour camel ride. Above that, it will be a little painful.
Camels are social and usually do not attack humans. You can ride on it without any fear. But if you force it to do something then it can retaliate and can cause you harm.
The minibus was new and quiet clean. The drivers were really courteous and dropped us off first to the quad bike base, which was incredible. We did have to follow the path, so it's not for freestylers, but it was fantastic. The camel ride that followed was amazing; the camel guides, as well as the names of the camels ( they amazingly choose a name for every camel ), are both humorous. Getting dressed in traditional blue robes and turbans was a lot of fun. The experience was then concluded with a refreshing mint tea, followed by the drop-off in our riad, which was all in all well worth it.
I was a little hesitant about booking this excursion because I had never heard of the Marrakech Desert Trips before, but there was no need to be concerned. The entire experience was fantastic; they promptly confirmed my reservation and notified me of the time they would pick us up from our hotel. We were picked up on schedule, and on the way, we picked up other clients who were also going on the tour. The camel ride was fantastic, and I thoroughly loved strolling around the palm grove. As we travelled, our tour guide was both fun and informative, pointing out various locations. He also crafted gorgeous presents for us all out of palm tree leaves. It was wonderful to see the Berbers and have the lovely women welcome us into her home for excellent mint tea and crepes (please remember to tip her). Quad riding was a lot of fun, and it was a perfect way to close the trip. We had a terrific day overall, and it was undoubtedly a highlight of our trip to Moroco. I strongly advise EVERYONE to use it.
This was something my partner and I did on our second day, and it was well worth it! We were picked up at our hotel at 9 a.m., followed by a couple additional pick-ups before heading off. We were immediately brought to the quads after exiting the vehicle. We were the only ones there, along with two other young girls and the guide. He gave us a quick briefing (literally on the quad), cranked my engine, and we were gone. We were also able to make a photo stop! When we returned, we immediately proceeded to receive our camel attire and joined a bigger group for the trip. We stopped at a local Berber house for some tea and crepes as well as a break from the sun before resuming our journey. The men are quite accommodating, taking our phones and cameras to take pictures for us. Time flies by, yet I believe our journey is long enough. We had a great time, and because it was just half a day, we still got the afternoon to ourselves.
