Jarjeer Mules is a retirement home, orphanage and care centre for working equines in the foothills of the Atlas near Marrakech.
All of us at Jarjeer are committed to animal welfare and those within our charge are cared for to exacting standards. Jarjeer is committed to fighting the abuse of working animals and assisting their owners. Visitors are welcome either to just enjoy the company of the animals, visit our new coffee shop or walk the foothills with a donkey. Rides are available for children under 10 years and if the temperature is below 34C.
“I know…! Everyone says so, but our visit to this most amazing, mind opening, heart warming and intelligent hospice-cum-reserve-cum-home for these of God’s creatures was the highlight of our trip to Marrakesh. An oasis of kindness and care that puts your feet back on the ground and reminds you about that which really matters: we’re all on this boat together and rowing is not optional. Thank you Susan, thank you Charles, and thank you Men. Pass me an oar!”

“The ethical initiative of Jarjeer Mules is inspiring. Morocco makes you feel the connection with yourself because of its nature and simplicity, let’s keep it this way.”
Burcin Ciuffo Yetim, Marrakech
Jarjeer is one of the most wonderful mule and donkey refuges I have ever seen.
