Tour Plan:

Merzouga Camel Trekking for 1 to 2 Nights

The most requested desert trip options that we get are the 1-day camel trekking trip and 2 days camel trekking trip. However, we are recommending 2 days for camel trekking which allows you to explore surrounding areas as well.

All in all, during these trips, you get to ride camels and watch the mesmerizing scenery of the Sahara along with unforgettable sunset and sunrise. Also, evenings are great for stargazing because the Sahara offers you an amazing experience of clear sky with milky ways.

Moreover, our 2-day trips are filled with more activities. After breakfast, you will get the chance to explore the desert further.  You will go on a trip to see the nearby fossils and see the desert lake, which is sometimes occupied by flamingos. Furthermore, we will be visiting semi-nomadic families and driving further in the dunes toward the Algerian border.

Lastly, if you are spending 2 nights in the desert you can choose to stay a second night in a bit more modern accommodations. At the desert riad, you can enjoy the pool along with a relaxing atmosphere. Also, if you prefer more lively surroundings you could hit the town of Merzouga for some lively spots.

3 – Night-Sunset-Sunrise Merzouga Camel Trekking

Not to mention, if you like to add 3rd night to a camel ride in Merzouga adventure you can dig into much deeper Moroccan local tribe culture and visit nearby desert towns as well.

In brief, you will visit Khamlia village which is a town known for spiritual Gnawa musicians. For sure, many of our guests enjoy these unique desert rhythms. Another great cultural experience can be explored in the ancient town of Rissani. Especially, many of our guests enjoy visiting traditional souks in town.

All in all, the unique Sahara with its unusual environment and local tribes will not disappoint you. It rather fills your soul and changes you forever.

Excellent experience in Morocco During the last months, I’ve been visiting Morocco quite often with groups. The experience, organisation, structures, activities as well as the support provided before, during and after the trip let us have an amazing experience. Drivers are always so skilled, professional and kind: worth-mentioning is especially Mustafa, with whom I travelled twice. Hope to see you soon again!

SIN DUDA UN VIAJE INOLVIDABLE Gracias a Hassan hemos podido ver todo lo que teníamos pendiente por ver. Nos ha organizado el viaje totalmente y nos ha explicado todos y cada uno de los paisajes y monumentos que íbamos recorriendo. En nuestro caso que somos españoles hemos podido comunicarnos perfectamente en español con él. Es una gran persona y estamos seguro de que cuando volvamos a Marruecos repetiremos con él. Ha hecho unas vacaciones inolvidables
Great experience! After a lot of research, we contacted Hassan for a 5-day desert trip with Best Morocco Travel and he was on time to respond to all our requests. From Marrakesh to the Sahara desert, the experience was impeccable. The well-planned itinerary, comfortable accommodation, and transportation provided by his agency deserves 5 stars. Our guide Hassan’s experience, knowledge and friendly behavior made it a perfect and unforgettable trip. I highly recommend traveling to Morocco for an amazing trip with Best Morocco Travel company.

An Outstanding Cultural Tour I just completed a multiday tour with Hassan from Best Morocco Travel as my guide. Safely driving his comfortable vehicle while playing wonderful Moroccan music on his sound system, Hassan took me to many memorable destinations. He knows his country. He’s a bright young man with plenty of energy. His English language skills are impressive. If you’re fortunate to have Hassan as your guide, he will take great care of you.
