fantastic experience, absolutely recommended! Super nice and super helpful driver. once you arrive at the camp you can rent the quad before the safari. I also recommend dinner in the camp which includes the tasting of typical dishes and in the background you can benefit from a very nice belly dance show

We were picked up on time by our driver Aslam, safari tour was very good, the driver had his vehicle under control, then we were able to take some photos, when we arrived at the camp we could have ridden a camel for free, but only 2 camels for that the whole camp is available, the column was accordingly long, so we did not do the camel ride and there was dinner and 3 shows in the camp.

Once I got to the Oasis camp I had a good time. My pick up was awful. Waited for the driver in the lobby and somehow he missed me. Had to spend 80 Dirhams to catch a cab to catch up with the tour. Driver never introduced himself or tell us about anything on the way to the desert. All he said was “ fasten your seal belt “ At the end of the barbecue. I was sent back to my hotel with another driver Khalid.- what a star he was. Funny and informative. Without Khalid you may have gotten less stars
