In Morocco camel rides are not only an important part of your adventure here, but it may be one of the highlights.
After arriving to the majestic Sahara desert, through the beautiful oases and valleys that lead you to the edge of the dunes, it is so much fun to leave your cares and worries behind and head off into the dunes on the back of a camel. Morocco camel rides are special. Imagine riding along on your camel in a caravan led by the nomads, into your desert camp for the night. Just like nomads and traders have done for centuries, you are enjoying the deep silence of the Sahara desert and enjoying an experience that you have travelled far from home for.
Many people ask if camel rides in Morocco are safe for the animals. The answer is yes, in the desert, with camels that belong to the nomads they are very safe for the animals. Camels have been used for thousands of years to carry much heavier burdens for much farther in the desert. The nomads treat their camels like western people treat their house pets. They are beloved members of the family.
What an honor and joy it is to sit atop of a beautiful and watch the setting sun descend over the dunes. Whether you are coming from Fes to Merzouga, or from Marrakech and back, the highlight of your trip to the Sahara desert will no doubt be the time you spent on your camel.
