I'm a very experienced rider and I've gone on day treks in lots of countries but this place was by far the best. I was so impressed by the professionalism of this place, the condition of the horses and the attitudes of the staff and I would absolutely love to go back! I was given Teqi to ride, a pretty...

We went for a one hour camel ride with Mustafa. Mustafa has a unique relationship with his animals which is both harmonious, patient and loving. For example he doesn't use a stick or words to command his beasts, just hand gestures. The result is a very harmonious journey and a ride that is very smooth, unusual for camels. The camels... More

We found Ranch de Diabat on the internet and one really good review. Booking via e-mail (in English), prepayment, correspondence on adding more people to the activity, late additions to the activity, pick-up/drop-off: everthing worked fine. Later we found out that they have staff fluent in English and German, which is really great. We were a group of 10 who... More

We were very well taken care of for an hour of dromedary riding. Having been picked up at one of the gates to the medina we were taken to the very nice looking ranch on the outskirts of the city. The dromedaries appeared to be in very good shape and the ride along the beach felt very safe and comfortable.... More

We visited Ranch de Diabat for a horse ride. Both my son and I were first time riders. We had a wonderful time. The guides made us feel at ease and were really reassuring. A must do if you are visiting Essaouira. Thank you all at Ranch de Diabat.

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

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
