INTO THE WILD: CAMEL TREKKING + WILD CAMPING

The most authentic experience of the desert’s natural beauty, for many travelers an unforgettable and the best experience in Morocco, an absolute highlight. Includes wild camping and walking 4-6 hours a day, giving a chance to experience real nomadic life: walking through the desert with camels carrying all supplies, setting up a Berber camp, cooking on the fire, baking bread in hot sand, playing drums and singing around a bonfire at night.

Here are some examples of routes, which are fully flexible – possible to change, reduce or extend.

4-day camel trekking to the great dunes of Erg Z’har (return to Desert Camp Chraika on the 4th day afternoon)
Erg Z’har is a natural wild reserve, a very quiet place with sand dunes up to 300 metres stretching on the area of dozens square kilometers. It is not allowed to build fixed camps here, so one can really enjoy the silence, often being the only person in the sight. It takes two days to get there and two days to return to the camp, taking another, equally picturesque way.
All highlights of a desert trip included: cooking traditional tajine on the fire, baking bread in hot sand, camel ride at sunset, sand-boarding, Berber music at night.

7-day camel trekking to Erg Chigaga (return to Desert Camp Chraika on the 7th day afternoon)
Erg Chigaga is famous for its spectacular landscape, therefore it is a destination of many trips every year. It is located 60 km from M’hamid. Its dunes are said to be even higher than 300 metres and they have a golden colour. There are many camps located by the feet of its dunes, where one can enjoy small nomadic parties every night.
All highlights of a desert trip included: cooking traditional tajine on the fire, baking bread in hot sand, camel ride at sunset, sand-boarding, Berber music at night.

2-day camel trekking to the dunes of Bertam
Short trekking to the dunes of about 100 metres height with a pleasant, green landscape around and all highlights of a desert trip included: cooking traditional tajine on the fire, baking bread in hot sand, camel ride at sunset, sand-boarding, Berber music at night.  

Prices start at 50 euro per person per day, including everything you need in the desert: camels, guides, 3 full meals a day, snacks, fruits, cold and hot beverages, accommodation in nomadic (or regular) tents

ALL IN ONE: JEEP SAFARI, BIG DUNES, OASIS + TEA WITH NOMADIC FAMILY

Main attractions are: visit in an oasis and by a desert well, tea with nomadic family, camel rides, sand-boarding, sunset in great dunes, accommodation in a Berber camp, nomadic music by bonfire at night.
However, we recommend to extend this basic 24-hour journey and add at least a one-day camel trekking to get acquainted with the genuine nomadic culture. Here are some examples:

Accommodation type: wild camping – at camps that guides set up themselves, in Berber or regular tents. Bonfires, traditional dishes and nomadic music every night. After a night (second night of the journey) in the spectacular big dunes of Erg Z’har, a jeep comes to pick us up and, crossing an oasis for lunch and a nomadic family’s settlement for tea, takes us to the dunes of Erg Chigaga, where we stay in a fixed camp, with regular toilette and shower. Return to Desert Camp Chraika on the 4th day morning.
