2 night camel trek
We offer you a 1 or 2 night Sahara experience. For both excursions, the program of the first night is the same, only the location of the camp is different. Contact us and explore the Sahara desert with us, we’ll ensure it will be a trip of a lifetime.
Visiting the Moroccan Sahara desert without a camel trek is an incomplete journey. Camels or to be precise dromedaries are animals living exclusively in the desert, often used by locals for different purposes like herding, transporting luggage and are source of food as well. The splendor in riding camels lies in the reality that they were the ultimate transportation device for caravans anciently. It will take you back to old times, traveling long distances through the magnificent desert.
Occasionally, we invite professional bands to perform during special events like New Year’s Eve, birthdays and other important occasions. The bands represent the Berber musical style and local folkloric shows. So if you have a special event that you’d like to spend in our camp, kindly let us know and we will manage to prepare surprises.
1 Night dromerdary trek
This desert trip begins in the evening in Merzouga from a hotel near the sand dunes. We organize a one hour dromerdary ride straight into the desert for a magical desert night. Our dromerdary will be packed with food, water, blankets and everything else important for our trip. You’ll spend the night in an equipped camp in the middle of the Moroccan Sahara. This will give you the great opportunity to take beautiful pictures of the desert sunset and sunrise from the high Sahara dunes.
It will be a magical night when the sky is clear and you can watch the impressive stars sparkle and shine intensely. During this magical night, we’ll serve you dinner around a campfire, after dinner tea with drum music, and you’ll spend the night in a traditional nomad tent (if you can part with the beautiful stars).
After sunrise in the morning we leave the camp and ride the dromerdary back to the hotel in Merzouga, where you can take a shower and we offer you a nice breakfast.
In the morning we’ll serve breakfast in the camp. After breakfast our caravan treks into the desert to visit the two oasis of Merzouga, the Berber nomad lands, Khamlia village (village of the blacks) and the desert plateaus. We’ll also visit local Berber nomads and join them for lunch. After a little ‘siesta’ and some rest for the dromedary we trek back to the camp. With sand boards for those who want to try sand boarding, we’ll visit a desert oasis in the Sahara dunes where we stay until sunset. After sunset we’ll go back to the camp for dinner. After sunrise in the morning we leave the camp and ride the dromerdary back to the hotel in Merzouga, where you can take a shower and enjoy breakfast.
