Reviews about the Day and night Camel Trek in Merzouga
Camel trek to desert camp
We really enjoyed our experience and it had everything we expected for a reasonable price. We arrived early but we could stay at the pool of the hotel which serves as starting point and also has a restaurant.
The desert camp is fully equipped and offers one of the nicest sunrise views. The staff was polite if we had questions and the food was good at the camp. I will recommend the tours to my friends. Suited for couples and families.
Great Sahara experience!
I took 1 day/1 night tour with them, with a camel ride through Erg Chebbi dunes, it was basically an entire day living alone with a Berber, cooking in the middle of the desert and without any tourists around, really unique experience, all the trip was served breakfast, lunch and dinner and it was great.
