Full description

Experience life in the Sahara Desert on a small group tour to the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Ride a camel across the sands and watch the sunset along the way. Drive across the winding roads of the Middle Atlas Mountains and much more.

Day 1: Fes - Ifrane - Midelt - Merzouga

Depart Fes and pass through the winter ski resort of Ifrane, built by the French in the 1930s to resemble a Swiss village. Continue through the cedar forest of Azrou and look for the resident monkeys before your drive across the Middle Atlas Mountains. Wind your way through beautiful forests, mountain springs, jagged rocks and Berber villages before your descent to the Sahara Desert. Stop for lunch half-way in the town of Midelt, famous for its fossils and rocks. Then, continue towards Merzouga taking in the panoramic views of a huge oasis of palm trees at Ziz along the way. Upon arrival in Rissani, travel by 4WD vehicle into the desert, reaching Merzouga in the afternoon. Here, your guide will be waiting with the camels that will take you across the dunes to Erg Chebbi.

Watch the sunset from the back of your camel on a one-hour trek to a Berber camp. Upon arrival at the desert shelter, your camels will be tethered as you are served a welcome mint tea. Enjoy dinner and relax as you look at the stars in the sky. Stay overnight in your choice of a shared, private standard, or private luxury tent.

Day 2: Merzouga - Tafilalte - Fes

Wake early and walk across the dunes to watch the sunrise from just behind the Algerian border, about 50 kilometers from Merzouga. Ride your camel back across the desert sands to take a shower and enjoy breakfast before the drive back to Rissani by 4WD vehicle. Return to Fes, and benefit from comfort stops on the approximate 7-hour journey.

My trip to the Sahara Desert was awesome! I started from Fez which was a long journey. There was plenty of rest stops along the way. One stop was very special, we got to see the monkeys and feed them peanuts. We got to the desert sunset camel ride a bit late but it still an amazing experience. The camp was nice. The tents were like a regular hotel room. Breakfast was a bit rushed to get us on our camel to take us to our drivers, and another long trip back to the city.

Wonderful trip. Long car ride, but with stops in between it's doable. The sunset in the desert is something unforgettable, as is the sunrise. We slept in a very nice camp, the tents were clean and in the evening they played us something around the fire. Our guide, Abdul, really kind and thoughtful! Experience worth it!

It was an amazing experience, they were all very accommodating especially towards our 3 kids 6, 10 and 12 so don't be afraid to take your kids. They even upgraded us into a tent with a private bathroom. Our drive Hassan was very knowledgeable and took into account the kids like food, feeding the money's, donkey and camel rides. In the end he took us to a very colorful place were they make plates and the owners etc the kids make and color their own plates and cups. There is nothing wrong that I can say about this. Thank you all and we will see you again for sure.
