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.

The camp was very nice (we were upgraded to a deluxe tent which was nice), the camel ride as well. The sunset and sunrise on the dunes is spectacular and definitely worth a visit to the dessert. Only slight criticism, if you arrive with your own car you have to drive a bit off road, which was a bit unexpected. After the tour we also had to find the way back to a normal road on our own, which was a bit difficult.

We received the data for the meeting point via WhatsApp because we came with our own car. What we noticed a bit negatively or should have been communicated better is that a man comes and drives with us in the car. Who didn't really speak English. We were 2 women.

Highly recommended - worked great. We arrived with our own car and got the meeting point via WhatsApp and were accompanied from there to the camp - off-road slope. We left the car there. Camel ride was great, all guides super friendly. Camp is almost luxury- super tent with own toilet and shower, towels, super clean Dinner and breakfast delicious, campfire with drums also cool Anytime recommended
