We were promptly picked up for our day from the agreed location. The whole day was very well organised with timings and the itinerary. The headscarves provide great shelter from the sun. The camel ride was a great experience but wouldn't have wanted any longer than a couple of hours as it was actually quite sore!!! The tea at a Berber home was a nice but random touch! Thanks for a great day out in Marrakech!
Such a warm and friendly place. We had such a great guide and all staff and village stop over was lovely. Must experience if in Marrekech!!
After donning a cheich, the customary turban veil, you’ll be hoisted into the air on the back of a Malian camel, led by a friendly guide. The experience is not dissimilar to horse-riding, a little bumpy at first but you’ll soon get over the hump. Trekking gently through the green palm grove, an oasis of peace, it makes for a welcome escape from the bustle of Marrakech, and you’ll gain a fascinating insight into the lives and history of rural Moroccan inhabitants.
Your authentic immersion continues with a break for tea in the home of a local family, Deeply refreshing with a sweet, minty taste, the ritual of Moroccan tea ceremonies involves three servings, the first “as gentle as life”, the second “as strong as love”, the third “as bitter as death”. After a traditional farewell, it’s back astride your camel friend for the slow walk back to base camp.
