Palmeraie information

Lonely Planet review

This enormous green space has over 200,000 date palms, as well as fig and pomegranate trees and canopied garden holdings. It's best explored by foot or bicycle (ask at your hotel for recommended bike hire). Calèches (horse-drawn carriages) can be found opposite the Hôtel Residence Karim and cost around TD6 per hour, though you are at the mercy of the driver as to the route taken, and the horses don't look like they are treated well.
