Full description
Depart Merzouga, Rissani or the oasis town of Erfoud and travel by 4WD vehicle to a traditional Kasbah at the foot of the Erg Chebbi dunes. Depending on your time of arrival, rest with a refreshing mint tea. Then, follow your guide into the desert and ride a camel across the sands. Trek across the magnificent landscape watching the sunset as you go. Arrive at the desert camp after a camel trek of approximately 2 hours. Upon arrival, your camels will be tethered as you drink some more mint tea. Enjoy a delicious dinner in the desert wilderness, and then sit around a camp fire to hear the beat of the drums and the songs of the Berber nomads of southern Morocco. Wake early in the morning and walk over the sand dunes to watch the sunrise from just behind the Algerian border, about 50 kilometers from Merzouga. Ride your camel back to the hotel, where you can relax with a shower and enjoy breakfast. Drive back to the bus station or your hotel in Rissani or Merzouga for the end of the tour services.

Super organized, we were picked up by jeep, then waited an hour at the hotel and were then taken to the dunes by camel for an hour - sunset, then by camel to the camp (which is right near the starting point) super great atmosphere with very clean beautiful tents and romantic outdoor dining areas. Fire and drums in the evening. Went to the sunrise myself at six o'clock, then breakfast and then brought back by camels. We paid 40€ each for the adults and 30€ each for our children. A well organized experience which we highly recommend.

Fun activity with everything there: ride a drommedaris, walk up the dunes and watch sunset, to the camp with food, music. Sleeping in the camp. Comfortable beds in a room with Moroccan rugs on the wall and floor. And watch sunrise in the morning, have breakfast and return to the drommesaries. And not to forget extremely nice staff, adequate and atmospheric.

wonderfull experience

the camel tour was so much fun, we where with a very big group (studytrip) and it was all arranged very well. Especially the overnight stay was perfect. We took the matrasses out of the camp on the sand hill and watched stars the whole night, the people there where very relaxed! Thank you for the experience!
