How to ride a camel like a pro?

If we don’t live it, we don’t know what we’re missing. Riding a camel is fantastically fun and can turn out to be one of your favorite memories from your trip to Morocco, a country that offers something beyond the landscapes and breathtaking views. A camel ride is definitely an adventure that you cannot miss.


Exciting camel ride in Morocco:

Enter the eternity of the sands of the Sahara desert on the back of a camel. Enjoy the sunset and sunrise with the swaying motion of the ride on the animal. This experience is totally safe, a specialized guide will accompany you at all times and will give you the necessary instructions to get on and off the camel. In addition, the walk is done as a group because when you share an activity with other people, you enjoy it more!

The animal will remain sitting on its legs and you will have to climb to a saddle that is placed on its back. This saddle has a bar for you to grab and now comes the funniest part. The camel first straighten his front legs so you will be suddenly tilting backwards. Then the camel extends its back legs, and you’re quickly propelled forward. We recommend you to do a little pressure with your legs so that you won’t move from the saddle. And remember, in this ride it is the camel that sets the pace. Therefore, we advise you that instead of resisting the animal’s gentle swaying and forcing yourself to sit up straight during the whole camel trip, move with the camel, not against it. Just take several deep breaths and try to relax your body.

During the camel ride you will probably notice that the smaller camels always go ahead. This is because of the guide that always stays closer to them so that the adult camels can adapt to the speed that the younger ones walk.

Don’t miss out on these unique Morocco experiences and take the opportunity to see a true magic scenery like the sunrise in the desert.
