Enjoy the swaying rhythm of the camel's gait as you ride through stands of palm trees to a Berber home, and then dismount for a glass of mint tea and a snack. Chat with a local and get a glimpse of life outside of the city. Following a visit with your host, mount your camel for the return trip out of the Palmeraie.
