Palmeraie (Palm Grove)

Marrakesh, Morocco

The basics

Most Marrakech sightseeing tours visit the Palmeraie along with attractions like the Medina and Koutoubia Mosque, and the city’s hop-on hop-off buses stop directly outside. You can also take your pick of organized activities at the Palmeraie, such as a camel or horseback ride, or a buggy or all-terrain vehicle (ATV) expedition. Nature lovers, meanwhile, might check out the Palmeraie and another lush green space, such as Majorelle Garden or the Menara gardens.

Quad in the Desert and palm grove of Marrakech
Really enjoyed our quad biking experience in the desert. The host was lovely and the tea was beautiful. The only reason it is not five out of five is that the speed you go on the bikes, depends on the group you are with. We had a lady in front who did not want to go fast.

Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
Wonderful! There are 4 in our family and there were a total of 7 people. Our driver, Marwan, met us at the hotel. Our camel guide, Hamza, was so helpful and encouraging. The visit to the Berber guest tent was very pleasant. We laughed so hard at our attempts to get on and off and Hamza was always there to help.

Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
I was very nervous as it was my first time doing a camel ride and I found how tall the camels were slightly intimidating. Our lovely guide Hamza made me feel safe as his knowledge of the camels was abundant and the animals were very well kept. I didn’t want to ride the camel on the way back because although I am very glad I did it once I didn’t want to get back up on the camel. Hamza was very kind and let my mum and myself lead the camels back and I really enjoyed this too.

The perfect (short) camel ride in Morocco

Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
While in Morocco, my friend and I decided we wanted to try a camel ride. We definitely did not want to do the 4+ hour camel ride into the desert; that was too long for us. We just wanted a taste of riding a camel. This excursion was PERFECT for just that, and at the right price. The whole thing was about 2 hours (including pickup/drop off) and was only $38 per person. We rode the camels for about 30-40 minutes (more than enough time in my opinion, b/c my bum started to get sore towards the end). Note, you are not riding in a desert technically. You ride through the "Palm Groves" which is a giant sandy area with palm trees that is between hotels and Berber neighborhoods. So, if you are wanting a ride thru the Sahara desert, that is not this. Our guide (Zechariah? Zalaryia?) was AWESOME!! You'll see him in the green hat in the pictures. He was energetic, kind, helpful, and made sure we all a) stayed on the camels, and b) got amazing pictures. He took turns using all of our phones to take fantastic pictures of our group so we came away with great memories. He also made us a little souvenir camel out of grass (see pictures). We got mint tea and cookies in a little tent in the middle of the ride. I highly recommend this excursion if you are just wanting a 'sample' of camel riding.

Sunset Camel Ride Tour in Marrakech Palm Grove
This was so much fun! I wasn't sure if riding a camel would be a little scary, but it was very relaxing and fun. The Palmerie is beautiful, with many birds. This was a great way to spend the evening! The guides were also great about taking many photos for me.

Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
We were picked up from our hotel on time. We were taken to the Palmeraie for a very nice ride. The guy guiding the camels took some very nice photos and videos of us with our own phones. This was a highlight of our trip to Morocco.

When to get there

The Palmeraie is open to everyone, every day. If you’re traveling independently, it’s best to go in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday sun. Early arrival also means you beat the noisy adventure-sport tours and enjoy the oasis at one of its most atmospheric times. Dusk is another option, with many camel rides timed to coincide with the sunset.
