We took a 1-hour horse-riding tour along the beach for 2 people. The driver picked us up at one of the gates of Essaouira Medina. People at the company are very flexible about timing and group sizes, and it took us only about 15 minutes to book the tour. We had nice obedient horses and a friendly guide. We brought... More

Thanks to my wonderful guide and Zouina Cheval, which seems to take very good care of the horses, in one day I learnt the basics of horse riding, was encouraged to be brave and gallop (and gallop I did....again and again!), and began to understand the intimate relationship, based on mutual trust, that can develop between horse and rider.

If you like horse trekking in tents, Zouina Cheval provides all you need. Sophie responds quickly and Najibe and his team will ensure you'll be having a good time. The horses are well maintained and reliable. Really nice experience.

Super enjoyable trip on horses along the Maroccan stepes and beaches! Excellent horses, excellent guides and delicious cooking, great organisation, sleeping under stars, galoping along the endless beaches. The experience to do in your life.

We took a 1h camel trip for 4 people. The camels are attached to each other and a guide walks them through the beach and different terrains. The trip is simple but it`s plenty for a first timer. They pick you up at your riad and aslo drive you back home. So it`s wery well organised. Also the camels seem... More

My boyfriend and I booked a 2 hour horse ride with a picnic for November 2015. Our guide Abdul was very nice and the horses that we rode (Hidalgo and Chocolat) were both in very good condition and very enjoyable to ride. We had a blast galloping along the beach before enjoying a positive feast of a picnic in a... More

Booked for a 2-hr dromedary ride in November 2015. Booked over email, got picked up at Essaouira Medina at the previously agreed time and place, got dropped off at Medina at the end. We paid in cash at the end the previously agreed prices (which I think are on their website too), so no problems there. Animals seem to be... More

I booked last-minute for a 1 day horse ride with Zouina Cheval and everything was well organised and easy. Lovely horses, beautiful ride, friendly guide who was clearly very committed to the horses and his role, delicious healthy picnic and even a cup of tea and biscuit at the end! Merci a tous.

Booked an inexpensive 3 day ride with transfers and nights in riad in lovely Essaouria either side- all organised by the very helpful Sophie from Zouina Cheval Everything went like clockwork - we were collected on time always by lovely helpful people.

Both my beach rides were fantastic. Abdel matched me up with Hidalgo; what a nice, elegant, good spirited horse! I love it when you really sense a horse enjoys the ride as much as you do. And I believe this is true for all the horses at Zouina, they are so well taken care of and in such excellent shape,... More
