What you'll do

We meet about 1.5h before sunset. This one-hour ramble through the dunes and along the riverbed of Oued Ksob will allow you to encounter the richness of the natural environment around Essaouira.

You will discover a former Sultan‛s palace, which over time has surrendered to the sand and now sits in state in the midst of a wild nature. This huge sanded palace, dating back to the foundation of Essaouira in the 18th century invites you to dream of times gone by.

We will give you some historical background about this site and afterwards in Diabat we will let our imaginations
fly whilst sipping tea and watching the sunset over the Mogador islands…
Other things to note
Relaxed walk, very nice atmosphere , easy conditions

Super interesting walk in the Moroccan countryside close to Essaouira. We learnt about plants, animals, local history and culture. All at a very relaxed pace with a beautiful sunset at the end in a local woman’s house with tea!

Très intéressant. Toutefois j'ai trouvé un peu cher parce qu'il n'y a pas de matériel à amortir, juste de la marche, le taxi, le thé et le guide.

Merci Claudia et surtout notre guide Naima qui a été très sympathique et aussi très gentille avec notre fils de 3 ans, à qui elle posait quelques questions en cours de route pour le faire participer encore plus. Nous avons apprécié cette promenade pour les jolis environs et les informations que Naima nous donnait tout au long de l'expérience. Ca permet de sortir un peu de la médina d'Essaouira et d'en connaître une autre facette.

This was a great stroll along the river bed and through the dunes. Not too difficult with a rewarding view from the palace at the end. Our guide, Naima, was interesting and well-informed. We enjoyed chatting with her over tea after the walk.
