Sleep in Sahara Desert Morocco

Sleep in Sahara Desert Morocco

    Morocco, and all of North Africa, is a place full of nuances due to its incredible variety of landscapes, languages, cultures, histories, prehistories, arts, and literature. A trip to Morocco would not be complete without an excursion to the Sahara Desert, and sleep in Sahara Desert Morocco. Dreaming of a sunset ride into the dunes, a night spent under the twinkling African sky, a typical Berber tent, drumming around the fire after a breathtaking Berber feast, or waking up to the sun rising over the towering dunes. It is an unforgettable experience if you are prepared. Be sure to check out our useful tips to fully enjoy a trip to the Sahara desert.

Proper packing

   The sun sets on even the warmest days, causing a dramatic decrease in temperature. Be prepared to layer up if you want to sleep under the stars. At night, you’ll still need an extra layer, regardless of whether you’re sleeping in a tent or not. A sun hat is a must, as well as high-intensity sunglasses for the sunset or sunrise hike to and from camp. For the camel trek, closed-toe shoes and long pants are best.

Be prepared to disconnect

   Given the remoteness of the camps and lack of cell phone reception, expect to be disconnected during your stay. No Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, or email alerts. You won’t miss them while enjoying the 360-degree views of the Sahara Desert.

Staying a couple of days in the Sahara Desert

   Given the distance to travel from Marrakech and Fez, it’s wise to spend two nights in the desert: one in the camp and one in accommodation on the edge of the dunes. The landscape is mesmerizing, with a changing light throughout the day, which makes it wonderful all day long. Activities such as sandboarding, camel trekking, and picnics in the palm groves can often be arranged, so there is no need to rush back to the city. Check out our Camel Trekking in Merzouga.

Standard or Superior Camp

 Those who want basic amenities, including a toilet, will want to pay a little more and stay in a higher-category camp. Although there is a myriad of campsites and options available, especially in Merzouga and more recently in Erg Chegaga, it is worth paying a little more to have your tent, clean bedding, and decent camels. Although cheap group tours are available for purchase in the busier tourist areas of Marrakech, the vehicles used are often not air-conditioned and reduce distances to a short travel time…
