Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
A first-time trip to Marrakech is never complete without experiencing a magical Marrakech camel ride where caravans once filled the desert landscape.When you don’t have the time to enjoy a 3 or 4-day desert tour deep into the Sahara, a camel riding experience through the Marrakech Palmeraie is a definite must.
The Palmeraie sits just outside the city of Marrakech and covers a total area of 54 square miles packed with over 100,000 palm trees that provide shade from the hot African sun. You can take a half-day Marrakech camel riding, or choose from one or two hours of camel riding through the scenic villages and palm trees that make the palm grove a true oasis in Marrakech. Choose from an early morning ride, late afternoon, or evening to experience an authentic Moroccan adventure. The late afternoon trips are spectacular due to the beautiful sunsets you’ll be able to witness along the paths.
