Camels in Marrakesch?!

We are off to Marrakesch in 3 weeks time. Apart from a whole day trip, is there the chance of a camel ride or not? I done a 2 hour trek type thing in Tunisia years ago, and wanted to do the same again.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Yes there are a number of companies in the Palmeraie which do camel riding. Your accommodation should be able to help organise it.

You can also try to arrange your camel ride near the Menara Gardens. We were offered a camel ride while we got off the car there.

but if I understand right so you will be there 3 weeks, or? In that case you have big opportunity to go to one of the ergs in Morocco and ride camel in theirs most naturally and more authentic landscape than near the airport or so. Or go to Agafy desert, 30 min from Marrakech.

The camels near to the Menara gardens are really just for a photo opportunity. If you want to do a 2 hour trek you are best going to the Palmeraie.

Yes, will be there in 3 weeks, not for 3 weeks, Khamlia.

Thanks for all your help. It's appreciated from all of you :)

At the palmerie you have the best landscape to do it, as you will find it very interesting, Yes in 3 weeks you will be in Marrakech as you have a very limited time to do.

Have fun and welcome to Morocco Travel forums.

Thank you, HamidB499. I went to Tangier which was the first time I ever went abroad. I loved it! Looking forward to Marrakesch very much :)
