Explore the Stunning Sahara Desert for 3 Days with Camel Treks

5 / 5 total 18 reviews
Duration: 3 days
Product code: 1051
Overview

A trek in the Moroccan Sahara desert is definitely an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. It is a journey well worth the effort and you will have fond memories to last you forever. 

Imagine yourself on top a camel, trekking through the Sahara desert. There is nothing around you and all you can hear are the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand. 

The sky is vast and clear in the day and filled with millions of bright stars at night. It is a very peaceful experience, one rarely known to most of the Western World.

This trek is for 3 days travelling from Marrakech to Ouarzazate, Dades Gorges, Tinghir, Merzouga Erg Chaabi, Draa Valley Ouarzazate and back to Marrakech doing lots of sightseeing by car before exploring the desert by Camel.

Spend one night in a guesthouse and one night under the stars in a luxury Desert Camp.

Itinerary
Days

We Depart from Marrakech at 09h in a modern, air-conditioned transportation.

We travel over the Atlas mountains, enjoying the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside below and visiting the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou.

This journey takes approx 3h.

From there, after our break, we continue to Ouarzazate (approx 1 hour or so) for lunch break & Sightseeing.

Lunch is available at the local cafes.

After lunch, we continue along the route of The Dades Valley to reach our guesthouse where we will stay for the night. The guesthouse offers Private ensuite rooms and an evening meal and breakfast are included.

  • Dinner
  • Accommodation :

The next morning we continue along the Dades valley, visiting Dades Gorge, Todra, Todra Gorge and other interesting sites, making our way to Merzouga.

At Merzouga we explore the village and meet our Camels who will take us for 1 and a half hours into the Dunes to reach our desert camp at Erg Chebbi.

Each person rides their own Camel . The Camel trek is usually just prior to sunset, so that you may enjoy the sun setting over the landscape from the top of the Dunes.

Once we arrive at the Desert camp, we are greeted with a cup of delicious hot minty tea and we spend the evening under the stars, on the dunes and beside the warmth of the fireside.

We enjoy a locally cooked meal of Tagine or couscous (vegetarians are catered for with vegetable tagine), a drum party and story swapping. The camp has toilet facilities. Those that wish to, can sleep directly under the stars, but there are Bivouacs for everyone.

The stars in the desert are a great opportunity to see as there are no artificial lights around and you can fully appreciate the glory of the skies above.

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner
  • Accommodation :
  • Camel Ride

Wake up early , just prior to sunrise, we have a 1h30 camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and we head back to Merzouga on our Camels.

This trip especially the night in the desert was an amazing experience. A well-organised tour, such great value and even with a lot of driving (understandable to get to desert), the views and landscapes were incredible the whole way. There were some great stops!

I really enjoyed the night at the tends. Got a luxury one to avoid the extreme culture shock and it was an excellent choice. Unexpectedly cool! Freezing at night and early morning obviously, It's the desert, **bring very warm clothes**. But awesome atmosphere with the team who work there. Excellent and totally recommendable!!

Perfect tour highly recommend. `We stopped at the several tour sights for the photos. After we arrive at the desert, had a great experience with the camel ride, sand boarding, beautiful sunset and friendly staffs. Dinner there was super delicious and they played some music with traditional instruments which were a really memorable experience. Also, the stars at night are just fabulous, cannot describe the peaceful scenery in the sky.

The camel trek itself was great fun with lots of photo ops and the camp was quite comfortable. There's even running water and flushing toilets! This is a great tour for exploring the Sahara while you're in Morocco.

We spent one night in a guesthouse and one in the Sahara, with the Berbers tribe. The kindest people ever. We were two girls travelling alone, there was nothing to be afraid of. The sceneries were just spectacular, couldn't believe the beauty around especially during sunrise and sunset.

The desert tour was great!! Especially the second day, we loved the tour through the Berber village, everybody was really friendly and nobody urged you to buy anything( even when visiting the carpet shop)! The sunset, dinner and sunrise in the desert were absolutely amazing!! The camp was comfy and quite warm even though its only April.
