Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed the 2 days trip to Erg Chigaga from Mhamid. Everything was perfect. Our guide/driver Ismail was definitely excellent: great driver, lot of knowledge about local people and landscape. He was incredibly kind every moment. And the last surprise: he was an incredible musician as well! He played for us after dinner with other guides! Amazing.
The food at the camp was delicious, the tent and the toilet perfectly clean. Great desert experience!

Amazing experience! Ismail was the best driver and guide. He was so kind and friendly. The camp is comfortable and the landscape is unique. The bigger surprise after dinner in the camp, listening to berber Music played by Ismail and others! Hope to come back soon!

Our 4- day desert trip from Marrakesch with our really nice driver Ramdane was absolutely fabulous! We (my husband, our 3 year old son, myself) stayed in a wonderful luxury-tent and enjoyed wonderful nature and great culture. It is quite some driving though, even more than we expected, but was definitely worth it. I have never been to a place like those sanddunes before so our 10 h drive back to Marrakesch on the 4th day was ok. If you travel with Kids, we would suggest you take plenty of entertainment for the time spend in the car. Special thanks to Mohammed and the rest of the crew in the camp for fantastic service during our time there.

Awesome désert experience. Everything was beyond expectations: very good nice and fun driver, beautiful campsite with carpets and lamps all around, possibility to do sand boarding on the dunes and super ride on the camel. But more than anything the staff was incredibly friendly and smiling with their eyes. They cooked a delicious dinner and were very careful to all our needs and our Carino two kids loved the experience just as much as us.

We had a wonderful time in erg chegaga, the camp is wonderful, the beds are lovely. But nothing can beat the view and feeling of being in a totally solitude place. Ismail took really good care of us, showed us the oasis and made sure that we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend!

The regular 4 day tour across the Atlas and to the desert was amazing, with perfect service and wonderful views. We had ample time to enjoy and meditate in the dunes, seeing both sunrise and sunset. We took even part in a real family lunch, thus getting a glimpse of traditional and modernized Berber culture. We had very intense and enriching 4 days, thanks to the good guidance of Said and the perfect driving of Abdul. We will definitely come back and do another tour with them.

We were very well taken care of by our tourguides, who took to their own initative to make it more memorable like for instance, giving us baby goats to hold in a Nomadic camp, supplying us with snacks during our travel and opening doors.

We stayed in Marrakech before we got picked up at our hotel for the desert, with interesting stops and veiwpoints. That could be missed if you didnt know it was there.
Then 3 days in the desert, that was quite fitting with activities and enough time to really take inn the unique nature once here.

*Just bear in mind that going offroad will be bumpy (as excpected when going offroad)
*Bring warm clothing for nights in the desert, this time of the year.
*and bring some ekstra water. But they will supply you if you dont have.
