Camel Rides

Myself and two friends are headed to Marrakech in May for a quick four day stop over. We are looking to go on a camel ride/trek, however due to the short timings can only afford afew hours or half day.

Can anyone recommend a oompany or site that does short camel rides??

Thanks!

Due to the time factor I would suggest you go to the Palmeraie,20 minutes drive on the outskirts of Marrakesh,where you can ride camels from 10 minutes to several hours,your choice.All you need to do is make your way to the Palmeraie and choose the camel emcampment that takes your fancy.The 1st one has bad tempered moaning grumpy camels but further on are some more sweet tempered beasts and the camels are nice too!

We also had just a short time in Marrakech snd my friend was determined to go for a camel ride so we took a caleche from the main square to the palmeraie. It's a nice trip to the palmeraie and you get to see the more rural side of Marrakech. I think we had the better-tempered camels - apparently our camels were father and son and father took quite a shine to my friend! We just had a half hour trip around the outskirts of the palmeraie but I think there were also hour long trips.

Have a good time
