We had an hours camel ride with a fabulous guide called Mustapha. He was extremely informative and made the experience very enjoyable.

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

We are all experienced riders who booked the one day ride with Bivouac. The well schooled and cared for Arab Berber cross stallions were ideal, allowing us to gallop along the wide open sands as well as pick their way through the sand dunes. A really good way of seeing the coastal area including the fisherman's shacks and wide open... More

We had a fantastic trip in Morocco. Six days of riding along the Atlantic coastline on amazing Arabian and Berber stallions that were powerhouses of muscle and were extremely sure footed. Really amazing how the horses could find their way among rolling rocks and jagged cliffs as we climbed or descended rough and rocky trails in 100+(40c) temps(mid August). We... More

We did horse riding & quad driving. Both activities were very well supported in beautiful environments for good prices. We will tell everybody going for a trip to essioura to do as well.

absolutely great experience! horse riding on the beach! Our experience was up to the standard of cantering and galloping, but it had been a while... we got to do both on the beach, the horses can really gallop if you want them too, not something I am use to in the UK, where I have found you say you are...

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
