I really enjoyed my overnight horse riding trip with Ranch de Diabat. The horses are in great condition and well looked after and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide took great pains to establish my partner and I's riding ability and gave us horses accordingly. The hack was a great experience with riding through desert landscapes and several... More

We stayed at the Sofitel hotel who organised this trip for us, and was very impressed by the excursion. The Ranch de Diabat driver picked us up from reception in a nice car, and took us straight down to the stables. We were slightly apprehensive at first as the ranch location seemed underwhelming as we had seen other camels on... More

We were picked up promptly at the prescribed time at Essaouira, and taken to the Ranch for our two hour camel (actually, as it was pointed out - dromedary) ride. After one of those road side 10 minute rides we had had I thought that two hours would be insufferable, but we enjoyed every minute. Unlike many animals we've seen... More

I was here on Wednesday 9th July 2014 with my school and I had a really great time. We rode on camels and it was very calm and enjoyable. I cannot wait to go back to Morocco for another fantastic and fun experience! Thank you so much x

We came! We had reservations (we were riding stallions for heavens sake!) we had to trust! Muhammad and his team were fantastic. We were matched brilliantly to our horses. Hosting, catering and overall welfare of the horses, and us, was amazing. No problem.... Only solution! Thank you thank you thank you. Definitely See you again.

We were not sure what to expect going into the overnight camel trek, but it ended up being a highlight of our trip to Morocco. The camel ride was a ton of fun, and was not too hot since we mostly rode along the beach. We stopped for a picnic in the forest and also ventured into the local villages.... More

I was NOT leaving Morrocco without riding a camel but the ones I saw in Marrakech did not look particularly healthy so I was not very happy about riding one and having a good conscience. On a day trip to Essaouira our driver told us he 'knew someone' ...he knew lots of someones...and would arrange it. We were having lunch... More

My friend and I had a brilliant 2 hour camel ride over the dunes and beach, with the very knowledgable guide Mustafa. A really fun trip with the photos to show! Oh and apparently camels like chocolate and coke!
