Sunset Tour & Dromedary Ride at Palm Grove

by Sahara Tours International Duration 3h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is £24

Take a camel ride through the Palm Grove of Marrakech and surrounding Moroccan countryside, where you can explore traditional villages, tour green palm groves, and immerse yourself in the local culture. Kids and adults alike can enjoy a one-of-a-kind ride through the desert at sunset.

After getting picked up from your hotel, head to the northeast corner of the city and the oasis known as Palm Grove, which features a hundred thousand trees that provide welcome shade from the hot African sun. Meet your friendly camel, put on a traditional turban veil that protects against dusty winds, and then head out onto the soft sand.

Follow in the footsteps of historical caravans as you travel on board a lively and lumpy “ship of the desert.” Your camel guides you into the verdant grove and through the sparse grasslands and shifting sands of the Marrakech countryside. As the sun dips down in the sky, your hosts direct you into the perfect location to watch the golden orb sink below the fiery horizon. Stop for a break to sip on delicious Moroccan mint tea and eat local snacks. Then, ride your noble camel through the wild back to where you started, and then take a leisurely non-camel ride back to your hotel.

The pick up and drop off from the hotel was fine, on time and very polite. Once at the location we were quickly put into traditional clothing and put upon our camels. The ride was nice and quiet in the peaceful location however, there is no “soft sands” and “ancient villages” as in the description. The following is directly taken from the excursion narrative: Inclusions Guided sunset tour of Palm Grove: it finished well before sunset. 2-hour camel ride: it was only 1 hour tour. Moroccan mint tea and local snacks: only mint tea at the end Roundtrip transport to and from your Marrakesh hotel: this was true and fine. Live tour commentary provided in English: our guide did not speak a word of English and did not speak at all throughout the guide, even the the French couple with us. I could hear other guides with their groups chatting and bantering all through their guides so it could just be a one off. Our guide took some photos of us on our camels but that was it.

The tour was OK, first time riding a camel and it was pretty exciting. However, the company “Sahara Tours International” that runs the tour was a disaster. They told me one place to meet, and they went to another place to pick up. They don’t communicate well amount themselves. Wasted my money calling the tour agency office using my UK mobile, when the tour bus didn’t turn up. Eventually it came and, we had wasted so much time and the sunset was approaching and not enough of sunlight to take decent pictures. Poor management.
