I attended the 8 day desert trail in February. It was a very nice experience with about 4-6 hours riding each day through diverse and fascinating desert landscapes. The crew were all very capable and welcoming, and made the camp for us every day. Before attending the trail with Ranch de Diabat, I was having doubts as to whether the... More

We are experienced riders and did a 3 hour ride on the beach and through the dunes and trees. Abdel was a fantastic guide and the horses were in super condition - they were well trained yet lively. We would definitely recommend.

Very highly recommended. Mustafa was an amazing guide, it was really fun to watch him with the camels, and he took some really great photos throughout our ride. The beach, dunes, and forest are beautiful. Definitely the highlight of our trip!

Booked a 1 hour camel ride for my mom and I and we absolutely loved it. We thought it would be scary but Mustafa the tour guide or camel guide was amazing with the camels. He used signs which the calms understood. They were so gentle, overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely go back and would 100... More

I booked an impromptu horse riding hour and was collected 30 minutes later. I went alone as my friend was at a cookery course so I only had a free hour but that was enough for me given the heat and my lack of experience. Mohamed accompanied me and he was great company and an excellent leader. Really helped me... More

We did. at any rate, brave it. The horses were well behaved and I have ridden before. Due to the terrible weather however our 3 hour ride was cut... More

We booked ranch de diabat via our hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly. They try their best to accommodate every need, allowing me to switch from camel to horse at the last minute despite being a beginner. The horses are well trained. Special thanks to Mustapha and Hussain. My sister was a little frightened on the horse but he was... More

First off, these camels are spectacular animals.It is obvious that they are extremely intelligent, very proud and remarkably tender. Pretty comfortable to ride on too. Thank you Sultan and Gobi for giving us the pleasure of your service! Secondly, Mustafa is an excellent guide! A wise camel whisperer with limitless stories of the desert, Hendrix and the Khalisi to name... More
