Two hour ride with lunch. Ride was nice but very tame. Five camels tied together slow walking pace. Several stops for photos. Terrible pity to see so much litter on beach and scrubland area. Not the fault of provider but something to be mindful of. Lunch was basic but acceptable.

I visited Ranch de Diabat last week. I was pleased to see how great the horses looked and how friendly they are! The staff are great, picking me and my friends up from nearby Essaouira and dropped us off at no extra charge. Went for a ride along the beach with some lovely horses, all well behaved and happily forward.... More

My friend and I booked the all day horse trek (with picnic). We had a fabulous day...despite being a little sore at the end! The ranch is run by people who really care for the horses, which is great to see. All are stallions, so can be a bit feisty - my friend and I have both ridden before so... More

This was our second year riding both the camels and the horses at the ranch, and hopefully won't be our last! The Horses My 14 year old daughter and I have ridden at the ranch 3 times now. The horses are all very well cared for and are fit and healthy, one of the reasons we chose the ranch. Although... More

We went on a camel ride last week while on Holiday in Essaouira. After being picked up and taken to Ranch de Diabat we met our guide Mustafa, I was a bit nervous at first but I very quickly got over it after seeing the calm nature of the camels ( Titanic, Frank Sinatra, Gobi, Cappuccino and Aram). It is... More

We went camel riding with Moustaffa, who was great with the camels. It was my first time riding and my girlfriend's second. We both really enjoyed the hour we spent trekking through a ruined palace down to the beach where we saw some great sites of Essaouira and the old watch towers. Would certainly recommend, although the trip out and... More

We booked a camel ride through our hotel and were collected and taken to Ranch de Diabat where we met Mustafa, what a lovely, kind, well mannered and very knowledgable man. Our Camels were amazing (Ali-Baba & Cappucino) Mustafa took us on a magical journey it was like something out of Aladdin! The bond he has with his Camels is... More

With one beginner (my partner) and one experienced rider (me), finding a great horse trekking holiday in Marrakech could have been tricky, especially when trying to organise it all from abroad. Ranch de Diabat came up trumps. They put together a lovely two night experience for us - with two full days riding and two nights in a cosy yurt-style... More

Brilliant!! Highly suggested. My Fiance and I had an amazing time riding the camels. Mustafa was amazing. Spoke English very well and was really helpful and informative about the ride. Took us on some amazing trails. Best of all, he did not use a whip to control the camels once. He is the Camel Whisperer. Only navigated by waving his... More
