Who we are?

Ranch de Diabat - Who we are?

First of all, a family.

It all started in 1995, a 12-year-old boy and his 17-year-old brother, Omar and Mohamed. To help the family of modest origins, the older brother started with an Arab Berber horse, on the beach of Essaouira, taking short walks to passing tourists, the younger brother after school helped him and, in the meantime, together, they learned from the school of the life.

Years pass and in 2003, after 8 years, they decide to set up a sarl company, with all the savings and thanks to the help of a dear friend, a French writer named Olivier Le Gendre (peace be upon his soul), and of make base in Diabat near the Mosque and family home.

Thus, was born the Ranch de Diabat.

From a horse, gradually they bought 10, from a saddle it was possible to have a quality saddlery and harness material, for all the cavalry of the Ranch.
The first week-long treks began, thanks to which the first off-road car was purchased to ensure logistics,they were the first adventures, the first experiences.
In 2006, after 3 years, a tourist from Italy with a passion for horse riding arrived in Morocco, who, thanks to the Lonely Planet guide, arrived at the Ranch de Diabat for a horse ride, Erika.
During that walk on August 9, 2006, her guide on horseback was Omar ... Erika returned to the Ranch in the next few days before returning to Italy, quitting her job, telling her parents that she had decided to go and live in Morocco, and the September 16 he returned to Morocco to stay there.
From this union of love over the years and a marriage between Erika and Omar, Rayane and Soraya were born.

Erika, Omar and Mohamed began to work hard because they had a common dream, to bring Moroccan horse trekking, to the world.
Thus began the presence in all the international trade fairs, many week-long treks made, other horses and additional equestrian equipment, acquired logistical experience, an invaluable baggage and the staff began to increase in number, national and international collaborations to increase.
The three partners, however, had the dream of making the Ranch de Diabat, a point of reference in Morocco, not only for national and international equestrian tourism, but also a center of Multi Sport.

Following this idea, little by little they added several dromedaries, designing a comfortable saddle for trekking for several days, they began to study routes suitable for pedestrian trekking accompanied by logistics tested for years.
They began to acquire an important number of quads, although it was not an ecological sport, but using this means to let their customers discover the beauties of the unspoiled nature around Essaouira, with the utmost respect for nature and the animals encountered on the route.
Over the years, other beautiful activities were also added such as treasure hunt in the medina of Essaouira, Yoga in nature, fishing with rod.

The desire to go further to progress and never stop, prompted the three young people in a short time to acquire a lot of material for the organization of Luxury Bivouacs and Weddings surrounded by nature and from here a great leap into the world of cinema in the work of assistance. and logistics and supply of films, musicals, video clips and presentations of new car / motorcycle brands, shot in the region of Essaouira, as well as assistance of Rallye cars / motorcycles passing through the region.
Although the road travelled has brought many satisfactions, the desire to create new experiences is always at the forefront, and even now after this strange year of pandemic, there are many innovations in the pipeline.

We will still be able to surprise us and surprise you.
Thanks to the staff who always work hard and never give up.

Erika, Omar, Mohammed
