My partner booked the day camel trek and trip to the Atlas Mountains, and we're really glad she did. We had an amazing time - Abdou is a brilliant guide, and to dine in his home was a real honour - his wife cooked an amazing meal, and his son was adorable.
The trek itself was beautiful, and really well organised. We were picked up first thing in the morning and driven to a small village an hour outside of Marrakech, where our Abdou (our guide) and our camels were waiting for us. The camels were very safe and secure feeling, and we enjoyed taking in the scenery on our 1hr30 ride through the farms, apple and walnut trees. We were then driven in Imlil where the view of the High Atlas mountains in the background was incredible. We walked around the villages before stopping for lunch, after which we were picked up and whisked back to our Riad in the city, safe and sound.
The whole day was a joy - from the camels, to lunch in the shade of Abdou's apple trees, and exploring some of the Berber villages in Imlil.
Abdou's other trips also sound great, and we'd like to do a longer one next time!
A day out on the tour was well worth it, and was a thoroughly enjoyable way to escape the city.
