Three college students traveling together to Marrakech in April. We have limited budgets, but we really want to go on a camel ride! I'm aware that there is a good system of trains around morocco so if it isn't in Marrakech, that's okay. if you have any idea of the price or where I can get any information on this it would be very much appreciated!!
Hi and welcome to Morocco. Well, there is no train between Marrakesh and the sahara...But, take Supratours near the train station in Marrakesh at 9:00 from Marrakesh to Rissani or straight to Merzouga. It's less than 25USD per person. It's a long way, but you can break the journey in Todra Gorge or Dades Gorge for one night then carry on to the sahara the next day. One night in the sahara (Erg Chebbi in Merzouga would cost appr. 25Euros per person, camel ride, dinner in a camp in the dunes, bed and breakfast are included. the next day, you can get back to Marrakesh or any other place from Rissani. If you need more help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , I'll be glad to help. cheers. almost 8 years ago
We stayed in Erford way north of Marrakesh in the Sahara Desert and took a four wheel drive from there out into the desert. From there we took a camel ride for about 30 minutes to watch the sun go down.
I believe one can take camel rides in Essaouira on the coast but don't let any Marrakesh taxi driver trick you into driving you there because it's a scam. almost 8 years ago
