Saharay Camp luxury Camp in the desert of Merzouga, Morocco
To visit the Sahara Desert in Morocco is a mystical exotic dream for many people. Imagine yourself riding off into the sunset astride a camel with a colourful turban wrapped around your head and the sun warm on your face. The excitement of spending the night in a nomadic desert camp with traditional freshly cookeddishes to eat,the soulful rhythms of the desert drumsto listen to, and, the most incredible night sky you may ever see; should be on everybody´s bucket list.
Close to the well-known town of Merzouga and the oasis village of Hassilabied is Erg Chebbi. These magnificent golden red sand dunes cover an area of up to 30 kilometres from north to south and up to 8 kilometres from east to west and reach a height of 150 metres. They are the highest soft sand dunes in Morocco and are a magnetic draw for adventure seekers, romantics and nature lovers, for individuals, families and groups.
You can stay for a night or several, enjoy the ambience and peace, soak up the sun and immerse yourself in the culture and hospitality. Perhaps you would like to spend a week or two exploring the area, or walk with the nomads and discover their lifestyle. There are mines, geological and archaeological wonders to explore, myriads of ancient fossils and minerals abundant in this once submerged ocean. Now it is a sea of sand, undulating dunes shifting in the desert winds, always moving and changing in colours and shapes.
