A ride on a dromedary over the beach is one of the most impressive adventures in the region of Sidi Kaouki. Dromedaries are gentle and good-natured animals who live in harmony with the Berbers around.


Sidi Kaouki is an ideal starting point for riding trip at the sea or in the argon-woods nearby. If you are offered to take part at a traditional “Thé à la menthe” from a Berber family you are welcomed to accept this invitation.

If the dromedaries are too big and impressive for the little ones, we are pleased to organize a trip on the back of a donkey for them.

A visit in one of the argon-cooperatives is recommendable and we’re pleased to organize a trip for you.
