I travel a lot, every 6 to 8 weeks and I am dead-set on seeing as much of the world before I depart it, so returning anywhere is a NO-NO except in this case. If you read my last review on Ranch de Diabat, it is clear I enjoyed it, a lot. I decided to return again with my youngest... More

I have been on the most amazing trip with Ranch de Diabat to Marokko november 2014. This was my second trip with Mohammed and his helpers and will not be my last one for sure! The way that they are taking care of you on the trip is unbelievable. Their hospitality and care for our well is very impressive. The... More

Ignore the camel ride vendors touting on the beach and head for Ranch Diabat in the dunes along Essaouira beach. Book at hotel and they collect. We only had a 1 hr ride coinciding with sunset. Excellent. Mustafa looks after the camels well and no whips involved.

This was our second experience with Ranch de Diabat, this time in the desert between Zagora and M'Hamid. Our expectations were high, like the first time, but yet again they were surpassed. The scenery is amazing, the horses are wonderful - playful and happy, they simply love these trails which are full of excitement. I am afraid of heights and... More

I booked an full day dromedary ride with overnight camping for myself, husband and 2 children, aged 7 and 4, for the 31st October. I was so excited when I booked, but as the time got close, I got nervous - would we like it, would the children like the food, would we fall off the camels, would we like... More

Thought we should write this straight away as we have just had a great half day camel trek with Mustafa. He was a real showman and made the whole experience worthwhile. We were very impressed with his care and understanding towards his camels, you could really see that they trusted him. As expressed in other reviews he has very good... More

I was looking forward very much to riding the Barb horses of Essaouira and Ranch de Diabat did not disappoint. It is well set up and the horses (all stallions - a bit intimidating to a UK rider) look in good condition, although I feel sorry for them living in stables day in, day out. Many of them have white... More

Wonderful half-day camel ride to river, through dunes and along beach. Mustapha was an excellent guide very happy to take lots of pictures and tell us about history of area. Turns out Essay is the location for many movies and Games of Thrones! Would definitely return on a future visit. Thanks to our camels Titanic and Sinbad :)

We booked a 2hr camel ride through our hotel and were picked up by the ranch and taken straight to the camels. I was quickly corrected they are not camels but dromadries as they only have one hump! The guide (Mustaffa) was great and very knowledgable and spoke very good English. He was a good photographer to and took some... More
