climb on the back of a camel to ride through the beautiful Palmeraie on the outskirts of the city. Although the real desert is too far from the Marrakech city center, about 20 minutes drive away lies an oasis of manicured gardens, sweet-scented orange trees and palm groves that make ideal terrain for a spot of light camel riding. A driver will pick you up from your accommodation and transfer you to meet the camel handlers and their trusty beasts. They will then guide you into the Palmeraie and on through authentic villages and green palm groves. Discover how the locals live outside the Marrakech city center. And end with a fresh mint tea in a typical nomadic tent.
