Camel rides in Essaouira

Our camels are quietly waiting for you, lying on the ground, the forelegs folded under them, so that you can sit on their saddle, specially designed for camel rides, combining comfort and safety. You are comfortably seated? Then ready to go, ask your camel to stand up – thrills guaranteed! And let’s start the adventure!

On the beaches of Essaouira and at the heart of the forest, Zouina Cheval welcomes you for camel rides and camel treks. This strange animal will rapidly charm you with his intelligence and his softness!
