Marrakech with children: a children’s and premium trip

Marrakech is arguably the most tourism-ready city in all of Morocco. As such, there are numerous activities aimed at the entire family. In this post, we’ll share what you can do if you’re looking to visit Marrakech with children and want to maintain a premium level throughout your stay.

Family Plans in an Exotic Atmosphere

A prime suggestion for enjoying Marrakech with kids are the classic family outings which, in this exotic and different environment, gain a special value. For instance, having a picnic in the downtown parks, especially the most iconic ones, like the Menara gardens.

The Majorelle Garden, while having stricter regulations as it is a paid tourist site, will also appeal to children. Its fascinating and colorful plants will be a sensory stimulus for the youngest members of the family.

Animal Experiences

There’s no question that animals have a special magnetism for the little ones. And in Marrakech, they’re within easy reach for those interested. One of the most authentic and local experiences are camel rides: this noble animal, so linked to desert areas, is also the perfect means of transportation for exploring some of the city’s iconic places, like the famous Marrakech palm grove.

Horses are also a common sight in the city and its surroundings. There are various equestrian centers where the little ones can learn horseback riding or, even better, go on longer rides through natural environments of interest, such as the valleys on the north side of the Atlas Mountains.

For those who prefer horses but within the city, there’s an even more comfortable alternative: carriage rides. These horse-drawn carriages are widely used by tourists for strolling around the medina’s outskirts, where the streets are wide and suitable for this type of vehicle. This way, you can admire sites like the red walls, the Koutoubia Minaret, or the Jemaa el-Fna Square from a slightly higher perspective than usual.

Thematic Experiences

Even if your travel plan includes cultural or natural activities, if you’re traveling to Marrakech with children, you’ll likely need to dedicate some of your time to children’s and youth entertainment. Fortunately, in the Marrakech area, there are theme parks of different types, where the little ones will have a great time.

A good example is Terres d’Amanar, an adventure park with zip lines, gymkhanas, forests with high walkways, and other challenges that children will enjoy. They also organize hiking and mountain biking routes around the area. It is located about 35 km south of Marrakech, in the town of Tahanaout.

And if the heat becomes intense, a common occurrence for much of the year, there’s nothing better than a dip in a water park. The largest and most popular in Marrakech is Oasiria, featuring large slides, a pirate lake for non-swimmers, and pools of different sizes with jets and imaginative games.

Child-Friendly and Premium Accommodations

And if you want your children to feel the magic of Marrakech from the moment they wake up until they go to bed, you can look for accommodations specially designed for the little ones. An example is the Beldi Country Club, which, in addition to the usual high-level hotel services, also organizes activities for family enjoyment. For example, cooking workshops to prepare homemade and local bread. Or sports moments in their facilities, like tennis or paddle tennis matches.

These are just a few of the many proposals available in Marrakech for children. If you contact us, we’ll take care of setting up a tailor-made program for your family, with all the affection that the youngest members of the household deserve, since Morocco is a country with a special adoration for children, something that is appreciated in the way they are treated and in the smallest details.
