Sunrise Camel Trek Tour in Merzouga Desert Reviews
Camel ride and watch the sunrise moment
We had the camel ride after the 4x4 wheel drop us to the edge of the desert, and camel ride us to the one of the high sand dunes before sun rise moment. Be there wait the skyline slowly change the colour and watch the unique sun rise moment with my love one. That moment will be remember for the life time.
After that we use the same camel ride back to the station close to the desert edge, and change back the 4x4 wheel back to the hotel we stay. I can saw got the desert camp with some tourist stay inside, I think for those who had time may consider for stay in desert camp, so you can had sunset moment and full skyline of night star experience as well.
Hope that help those who plan for the desert trip.
Incredible Sunrise camel ride in Sahara Desert
What an incredible ride throughout the desert on a camel night time and at sunrise. Incredible adventure but after this camel ride tour we had enough of this ride. It was worth it though. Once in a lifetime adventure.
Magic does happen in the Sahara Desert
I have been travelling the world Solo for many years. Out of many countries and memories my journey through the Sahara will always be at the top of my Memory list. With Morocco Tours Agency I was truly treated as if I were a Desert Queen. All of my needs were looked after even before I knew I would need. The Camel Guides and entire staff were very respectful of me as a solo woman traveler of 67 years. I would recommend and tell you this is the greatest adventure THANKS to Morocco Tours Agency.
