This super family walking holiday with camels in Morocco starts out beyond the Atlas Mountains amongst the palm-fringed oases of the Draa Valley. Here, we meet our Berber crew and their team of camels and set out on a 4-day walk on the edge of the great Sahara Desert. Travelling in the traditional way of the camel caravan, our route will take us across high sand dunes to isolated villages and rock ridge viewpoints. Camping out in the desert, meeting Saharan dwellers and hunting for fossils, this is an enchanting experience for the whole family. The holiday also includes time for sightseeing in the wonderful city of Marrakech where the evening entertainment is still provided by jugglers, acrobats and story-tellers.
Some of our departures are run in conjunction with our friends at Allibert Trekking in France. This gives the holiday an international flavour and enables the children to make new friends across the channel. All guides speak both English and French.
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for children from 6 yrs old
This is a walking and camping holiday for the family in Morocco where camels carry all of our equipment. During each day's walk you need only carry what you require that day. The walking has been tailored with children in mind and involved walking through desert in a traditional camel caravan where there is the opportunity from time to time to ‘rest' from the walking by riding on the camels. The terrain here is more of a hard-packed sand rather than dunes. We will be walking for up to 5 hours each day at a leisurely pace with plenty of time for stops to explore the desert, examine the rock art, search for fossils etc.
