Jarjeer is based just 24 kms south of Marrakech in the foothills of the High Atlas. We are a retirement home, orphanage and hospital to many animals. Come and meet our team of magical donkeys who are socialised, friendly and always very happy to see visitors. The Jarjeer project is supported by ‘The Machin Foundation Ltd’ a company limited by guarantee with charitable objects, registered in England and Wales.  The charity was established in memory of Harry Machin, an animal lover and father of the founder of Jarjeer Mules.

All of us at Jarjeer are committed to animal welfare and those within our charge are cared for to exacting standards. Visitors are welcome to come to Jarjeer, either to just enjoy the company of the animals, walk the foothills with a donkey or to bring their children to ride one of the older donkeys. 

An exciting new project involves bringing old mules from the mountains for retirement to save them from the hell of being sold on the streets of Marrakech to pull rubbish carts and other back breaking work.

This is a unique initiative but we need help from supporters now as new stables are urgently needed!
