Overnight Camel Trekking in Merzouga Reviews

Overnight Camel Trek in Merzouga Desert

We did a camel trek with overnight in the desert. I set it up way in advance with Said who was very responsive. He even helped me with planning the rest of Morocco trip. He met us at the designated spot from where we drove to the hotel. Since we had 3 hrs before the start of the trek he let us use the swimming pool. Kids especially loved seeing the herd of camels while swimming.

The trek itself was great. I was surprised that my 7 yr old rode his own camel but he loved that. Hassan was very helpful the whole time, even stopped to take pictures of us all. The tents we slept in were luxurious. I was shocked. I anticipated very basic accommodations but instead we had full suite, with shower, toilet, electricity, huge dining tent, sitting couches and chairs outside, fire pit, even chairs on top of dunes (Little prince style). Food was very good, plenty of water available for all, music and dancing to Berber/Nomad tunes. Views were of course spectacular. Highly recommend booking with MTA. We will be back during cooler month to do a 2 night Camel trek.

Overnight in a Berber Tent after a camel trek!!!

This was an amazing experience; we rode a camel for 2 hours at sunset, then we ate Tajine and after same chat with M'barek (a very nice guide, could help to understand a little more the berbere culture), we went to sleep under the stars (it was quite warm at night), then we wake up early in the morning to go back to Hassi Lbaied and stopped in the middle of nothing just to see the sunrise behind the dunes.
We booked this Camel excursion through an hotel in Merzouga, but i think that we just waste some money!!!
Next time i'll talk directly with MTA!!

5 day from fes to marrakech with Morocco Camel Trekking Merzouga

We did a 5 day tour from Fes to Marrakech with Morocco Tours Agency and it was the highlight of my 10 days holiday in Morocco, Said was friendly and answer to my emails very quickly, our driver guide was Ahmed very friendly and always make sure if everything is good, he is very professional driver and knowledge. The accommodation was excellent and the food too, camel trekking and night in the desert was amazingh.
I reccommend Morocco Tours Agency to everyone who wants visit the Magic of Morocco

Dunes Right Outside of Lodging

The beautiful Sahara
Erg Chebbi, Morocco's very own part of the Sahara Desert. It really is beautiful. We did the compulsory over night in the desert and it was fantastic, climbing the dunes, watching the sunset and sunrise, and if your game staying up really late in the hope of shooting stars.

Wow. Watch the night stars, and ride a camel at sunrise over the dunes.

Total Bucket List Experience.
Since this is such a remote location, I would highly recommend watching the night stars. They are untouched by any urban light pollution. At daybreak, ride a camel to watch sunrise over the sand dunes. Our Berber guides were fantastic; they took many pictures of us with our camels, wrote our names in Arabic in the sand, and took their time explaining their lifestyle and culture to ignorant Americans.
Truly a magical, once in a lifetime experience.
Thanks for everything.

Beautiful night dunes Erg Chebbi

If you stay in Erfoud take a trip to Erg Chebbi. If you have a rent a car, you can drive till small village of Hassi Labied before Merzouga, stay there for 2 nights and explore this beautiful dunes. Try good food by Berbers and enjoy the nature!.
