Incredibly memorable adventure to the Sahara desert!

This was my favorite part of my trip to Morocco. The only downsides to our trip were due to the fact that we chose to go in July, which is really not an ideal month to visit the Sahara lol. It was extremely hot and windy, spring and fall are much better months to go if you can plan accordingly. Our driver, Mohammed Obama, was excellent. He was so relaxed, kind and a very safe driver (something I was worried about since the roads through the Atlas mountains can be a little treacherous by US standards). It was fun traveling w a small group of other tourists, it felt kind of like we were at summer camp. I wasn't prepared for all of the cool stops we made on the way, including a very cool canyon that reminded me of Zion in Utah, as well as Berber villages so that was fun! All of the guides in the camp at the Sahara were super welcoming and friendly. It was nice that they took the time to hangout with all the tourists after dinner. Overall a memorable excursion that I'll remember forever!

Magical, a trip you will always remember and cherish.

Looking at the name of the trip, you only expect to see the desert. But the roadtrip by itself is a beautifull experience. The trip takes you to the Atlas Mountains, to the ancient Ait Ben Haddou, with your local guide who will tell you a lot about the history of those places. Staying in the hotel in Tanghir with a pool is a welcome surprise to end the first day. Second day is all about getting to the desert we thought, so again it was a nice surprise that we first visited the green valley and mountains of Tanghir which looks like a fata morgana. After Tanghir you go to Merzouga to stay at the desert which is the best part of the trip. The desert is just beautifull and magical, watching the sun going down and up. Sleeping in the tent is okay. Warm, but the bed is really okay. Food is fine, the people are very polite. On our way back we had a big thunderstorm in the Atlas Mountains. Roads were blocked due to heavy rainfall and mudstreams. Our driver Obama Mohamed saved us big time.

Great experience - only for healthy/rather fit people

I have to keep it short as its limited characters, here my tips: day 1) pick up at the square in case you live in the medina. Stops every 1.5-2h for toilets, drive though atlas mountains curvy so be prepared. First stop in berber villiage very sunny, so bring hat. They make you buy a "sahra pass" so the scarf for around the head for the desert. There are several options, but its worth buying and it does not get that much cheaper after that. First Hotel is quite fancy - with A/C and pool - bring bikni! day 2) Little walk though some fields with some kids that keep walking behind you selling some stuff. first that was cute, then it gets annoying. Be prepared. Then they bring you to where you get your camels - last chance to buy water for the night. There is again a pool to swim. Then camel ride - 20 mins, not 1h. The tents are ok, there are real toilets (shared) and running (stinking) water, but enought to wash off the sand. Sleeping in field beds. last day: drive back 8h

Beautiful experience but upgrade to luxetent is neccesary

We loved the trip and the organisation that does the camelride and the actual activity in the Sahara was perfect! Although an upgrade to a life tent is necessary to get a bit of comfort. I heard story's about the base camp and after a bit of a sandstorm during our camelride, we were happy that we could shower and sleep in a nice bed. It is quit a long trip though, but we knew it before we booked this. But prepare yourself for sitting in a bus for a loooooong time! I could however recommend the organisation to buy busses with more space. It was not really comfortable to sit in the minivan for such a long time as my knees were always hitting the backseat in front of me. Overall nice experience, interesting guides and nice activities during the trip towards El Chebbi.

This trip was amazing! What a wonderful experience.

This trip was fantastic! Such an experience, riding camels in the desert and sleeping under the stars. definitely worth your money :) just keep in mind it is an 8 hour drive both ways (from Marrakech) so if you don’t do well with long car rides maybe this isn’t for you. Also make sure to take motion sickness medicine with you, lots of water, sunglasses and a scarf if you can (to avoid having to buy overpriced ones on the way). The facilities are very good at the camp.
