Horsebackriding Marakesh?

by tristangovignon

I would love to go horsebackriding in Marakesh. I've heard that one can ride arabians through the souks? I would love to have a beautiful horseback experience. I am a good rider. Any recommendations?

Re: Horsebackriding Marakesh?

by Gillybob

I doubt very much you can ride Arabians through the souqs. I certainly saw none of that whilst I was there. The souqs themselves are, in the main, very narrow passageways with lots of people. Mopeds, yes; the odd mule on the wider passageways, yes. Arabians - not from my experience.

...generally the souks are too crowded for people, let alone horses. Balak Balak!

Ok, Agree with the other postings - No Way can You ride a horse through the souk in Marrakech! The odd donkey might get through with difficulty!!!

Try Googling 'Marrakech Horse riding' - You'll find some riding schools in the Palmeries, plus treks into the Atlas mountains, which I'm sure would be a great experience. If You do this You'll find something suitable for your needs.
Best Wishes,
Sue

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Great shopping

by Veroali

Shopping in Medina is fabulous experience. First the way Medina is organized. One lane fruit, other one jeweleries, other one sweets, etc. Not so much interesting for women is street with technical staff and repairing motorcycles. Some streets where are sold chickens and turkeys you can smell long in advance and also after. These streets and little lanes are mostly off the beaten path of Medina, which is even more interesting.
All shops with the same commodity are just next to each other. The most beautiful and colorful are carpets shops, shops with clothes, candies, spice, shoes, vegetable, jeweleries. And many others...

Marrakesh's latest big show!

by suvanki about Al Menara -Reflets & Merveilles

Although I intended visiting this attraction, I received conflicting information about opening hours etc, plus it was very cold at night, so in the end I decided not to visit.

However, I thought I'd add this info, as it sounds quite impressive.

So, according to the blurb- It's a 65 minute spectacle, which illustrates the richness and diversity of Marrakesh and Morocco, with important moments in the citys history being unveiled during 12 scenes.

The backdrop is the 3 hectare Menara reflecting pool- (one of the worlds largest stages!)

Highlights include approx. 50 dancers,acrobats, comedians and a horseback rider, who glide across the water, assisted by hi- tech special effects,water screens (where giant images and videos are projected) and a firework display.

1st Dec - 31st March 1900hrs
1st April -30th Nov 2200hrs

250dh bleacher seating. free for under 12s accompanied by adult couple.

See my Things to do tips for more info on Menara Gardens It's open air- so you might need a jacket unless in the summer.

bleacher seating- so dress for comfort!

Pretty setting for lunch

by toonsarah about Majorelle Gardens café

In the heart of the Majorelle Gardens is this charming café, with a courtyard shaded by trees and several inside rooms decorated in traditional Moroccan style. The food is not the cheapest in the city, but the quality is good and the pretty setting makes it well worth the little extra. The menu includes both light and more substantial dishes. We opted for the former – I had a delicious quiche made with spinach and smoked trout, while Chris chose a tuna melt Panini. The café specialises in a variety of fresh juices and the mint, pineapple and ginger one I chose was excellent and very refreshing on a hot day. With Chris’s sparkling mineral water and a coffee afterwards for me, we paid 295 dirhams (about £23.50).
Of course on top of this you have to pay the 30 dirhams entry to the gardens, but they are so beautiful that they should be high on any must-see list in any case!

El-Mansour or Kasbah Mosque

by vtveen

Another mosque built by Sultan Yacoub el-Mansour between 1185 and 1190. But after an explosion the mosque was rebuilt in 1569. It is also called ‘Mosque with the Golden Apples’, as a story tells the balls of its lantern were made from the golden jewels of the el-Mansour’s wife.

The minaret of the mosque is quite similar to that of the Koutoubia Mosque, with almost the same decorations with green and white tiles. As all religious buildings the mosque is closed for non-Muslims. Because we were just before a service and the doors were open, we got a glimpse of the interior of this huge building. It is amazing how many worshippers are coming to such a service, the roads are more or less overcrowded with (mostly) men in their jellaba’s.

El-Mansour Mosque is located in the middle of the Kasbah and is also called Kasbah Mosque,

Moroccan Dreams

by Ramonq

"The Square"

Djemaa el Fna best summarises Marrakesh. This square has it all. Besides all the colourful merchandise and foodstuffs on display at the souk, there are, at the vast open field, jumping acrobats, tarot card readers, tatooists, snake charmers, tribal men in traditional garb, monkeys and donkeys! Although it can be dizzyingly chaotic, you can spend hours being entertained here without being obliged to pay. Djemaa el Fna is the reason why Marrakesh is one of the top tourist drawcard in Morocco.
