Are your Desert Tours appropriate for kids?

Yes, all of our Morocco tours are appropriate for children. We love having kids on our tours, and we find that they truly enjoy the experience. We have booster and child seats available. Children of any age can participate in our tours.

Can children ride a camel?

Yes, children can go camel trekking in the Sahara too! Children from about 10 years old upwards may feel confident enough to ride a camel alone, and this is fine. However, younger children or older children who would like to may also ride a camel with a parent for support. Most companies will allow an adult and a child to ride a camel together.

Can I skip the camel ride?

Yes, depending on your tour, you can either walk or ask your guide to help arrange an alternative ride to the next stop. The camel rides usually last around 1-1.5 hours.

Can you ride a one hump camel?

Yes, it is possible to ride a camel with only one hump. The dromedary (one-humped) camel allows a rider to sit in front of, on top of, or behind the hump; the Bactrian (two-humped) camel is saddled between humps.

Fes is approximately 471 kilometers (293 miles) from Merzouga Desert, located in southeastern Morocco. The distance can vary slightly depending on the specific route taken.
