After seeing some beautiful, well cared for horses on the beach, I decided that I wanted to go for a ride. As an experienced horse owner, I am often disappointed with treks, as I am used to doing my own thing with my horses, trotting, cantering, galloping etc when it suits me and not a lead rider. However, Ranch De... More

From start to finish Ranch de Diabat was fantastic. From a pick up from the centre of Essaouria, to seeing the shiny stables to the amazing three hour trek with the horses. The horses were well behaved and beautifully looked after. Mohammad, who took our trek was friendly, relaxed and extremely helpful. Took lots of photos for us too. Great... More

Easily booked at Medina. Got picked up and taken to ranch. Very friendly people and horses were obviously well cared for and loved. Mohammed, Mustad and Isha were always smiling, so knowledgeable and patient. Mohammed took loads of photos for us too. We took a 3 hr trek along quiet beach and dunes and horses catered for all abilities. Such... More

Ranch de Diabat is situated just outside Essaouira, but the booking office can be found close to the medina. We were collected from the medina by car and driven to and from the ranch. The ranch itself is very pleasant and professional. We were taken on an hour long horse ride along the beach, which was thoroughly enjoyable. The guide... More

We had a 3 hour dromedary ride including a meal with Mustafa as a guide. It was a quite pleasant experience, it was very nice to ride a dromedary. The ride itself was very well planned and executed. Mustafa was a great guide who seemed to really like his dromedaries. He also took a lot of nice pictures during the... More

We had a great ride with Quads for 2 hours .Our guide Mohammed was very nice a new all the tracks. We had a great time with him and a lot of fun. We drove at the beach, but also in the dunes. We can definitely recomend the Ranch de Diabat.

We did a three hour horse trek and then stayed in a bivouac for the night before riding back the next day and the experience could not have been better! We rode for far more than three hours (because we wanted to) at no extra cost, the guides were incredibly accommodating regarding levels of proficiency on horse-back and the scenery... More

Today we (3 Dutch students) made a trip to the Ranch of Diabat for a camel ride. The ranch looks really nice and all the horses have their own space to live. All the animals on the ranch are taken very well care of, you could really notice that and for us that was very important. We rode on the... More

An adventurous day out if you fancy it - we did a 2 hour trek for 250dh each through desert and then followed the coast line back across a deserted beach with spectacular views of Mogador Island. We were complete novices when it came to horse riding, but were shown the ropes quickly and given safety gear. Whilst my horse... More
