I rode from the Zouina Cheval stables in early March. It was a very pleasant ride - nice horse - along sandy paths through the trees at Village de Diabat (east of Essaouira) and then along the waterline on the beach itself. The owner collected me from the hotel and delivered me back. For a very reasonable cost it was... More

My gf always talked about horse riding along the beach. Therefore, I gave her this 3 hour ride including picknick as a Christmas present. A driver picked us up at Bab Marrakesch in Essaouira and we drove towards Diabat, a small town close by. The ranch is very neat and everyone is really friendly. Our guide showed me everything so...

Great value - price included being picked up and dropped off from outside our riad door which made it very easy. Our ride was a full hour, and the camels seemed very well looked after. very enjoyable. Plenty of photo opportunities, our guide took some photos for us as well. Very impressed and would recommend to anyone.

We spent 2 weeks riding with this company and the reviews are not exaggerating. Excellent stallions. Extremely fit, well trained. Excellent local support team. Really great local guide. Great food (we had better food in a camp than later in a Moroccan/french restaurant :-). Impeccable schedule, everything was on time. This is how a horse riding company should be run.... More

A family of four (Mum, dad, boy14 and girl12) had a full day on the horseback and enjoyed every second of it. Only mum and daughter had any riding experience, but the boys gave it a go no matter. The guide was very calming and competent, the horses seemed healthy, well fed and at good spirit. The picknic lunch was... More

An all over excellent experience. Pick up right on time, a very friendly guide, and an exotic environment for riding - with a mix of forest, sand dunes, and beach. The horses were beautiful, well trained and with just the right amount of "zest" - both a perfect fit for our different riding experience (one experienced rider and one beginner).... More

Nice two hours trip on horse back thorugh a forest then on to the dunes and the beach, where we galloped along at the waters edge. Great guide, who told us a lot about the environs and the city. Fine horses, too. Lots of fun!

Our 1 hour camel riding trip with Zouina Cheval was the highlight of our trip to Morocco. Cannot overstate how great the experience was for us. We emailed Zouina Cheval the evening before our trip to Essaouira and received an incredibly quick and informative response. After taking a Supratour bus from Marrakech to Essaouira, we were met at the bus... More

Zouina Cheval is an incredible company. My family and I spent about a month traveling through Europe and Morocco and our hour-long camel ride was, without a doubt, the best part of the whole trip. Our tour guide, Ibrahim, was a lot of fun and down to earth. He really loves the animals and treats them incredibly well. Getting to... More
