This trek totally made our Morocco trip. The hospitality, courtesy and kindness shown be Mohammed and the rest of the crew was truly the highlight of our trip. They went above and beyond. It was no-nonsense, exactly what we asked/looking for. They didn't try to up sell or walk us into a tourist trap (like so many other horror stories I have heard from friends who have been to Morocco and done a camel ride) When we pictured a desert adventure, we envisioned the days of early explorers headed out into the vast Sahara on a camel caravan, devoid of modern motorized vehicles. We searched the web and finally found this group ( MP Sahara tours). During the planning phase Mohammed and Laila were very easy to work with. They were prompt and concrete with their replies (even though we were half a world away). They were accommodating to our requests (half our group was vegetarian) and flexible on dates. The price was reasonable and fixed on a per person per day basis. Mohammed also arranged for taxi to and from M'hamid (from Marrakesh) for a reasonable price. (Warning: It is almost an entire days drive). So it was literally a non-hassle trip the moment we got onto the taxi. I was tracking our progress on my GPS watch and was amazed that we were maintaining a near perfect straight line. Our guides were just using the horizon as reference. The camels seemed to have been treated well and left to graze during stops for lunch and at night. The camps were set up to protect us from the elements. Since the camps are not predetermined, you get to experience the solitude of camping by yourself and enjoying the starry sky at night. In all a very delightful and fun experience. The food that our guides cooked in the desert was among the best I had eaten in Morocco. I was also amazed that our guides made semolina bread out in the desert without an oven in the sand and we didn't encounter a single grain of sand in the bread we ate. Amazing!!. I consider myself an amateur bread baker, so I was a very impressed with this technique. In conclusion, pick this group for your camel trekking desert adventure. You will have no regrets. We have added a 7 day camel trekking trip to our bucket list and would pick MP Sahara tours to lead us when we do.

Our night in the desert was the best part of our trip to Morocco. Hanging out with our guides was so fun, they told us so much about the desert and life in Morocco. We wish we had stayed longer. Traveling as two women in an unfamiliar country was a little bit intimidating, but while we were with our guides, we felt very safe and comfortable. The accommodations in the camp at M’hamid were fabulous, the scenery was beautiful. 100% would recommend this tour company to anyone who wants to visit the Sahara. Thank you so much for a great visit!

We contacted Mohammed to organize for us a 1 week study trip for a group of students from the MArch Architecture programme at Cardiff University, UK. Camel Trek Morocco normally provide tourists a poetic and beautiful experience of the desert. However we were asking for something a little different. We wanted the trip to be based around his camp a few miles outside M’hamid and for it to combine a number of different experiences. We asked for a 3 day camel trek. We wanted to visit vernacular buildings in and around M’hamid and we wanted to build using mud. Mohammed delivered everything we asked for and so much more. And it was all included in a fixed per head price agreed at the outset that was constrained by the university budget. He organized the logistics beautifully including airport transfers. But it was Mohammed’s attention to detail and desire to give us over and above what we asked for that really stood out. We wanted to visit the Ksar in old M’hamid (an extraordinary and beautiful fortified farming village made almost entirely of mud) and he arranged for a family who lived there to cook us lunch. We asked to make some mud bricks and he arranged for us to build a hut. If we expressed an interest in local traditions the following meal would be shared with his team and eaten according to their custom. One afternoon a man arrived by moped with a guitar on his back and that evening we sat around the campfire listening to Mohammed and his friends singing and playing music. Camel trek Morocco is run by Mohammed and he has chosen a great team of people to work with. We would like to thank Petrana, Yunnus, Mohammed’s brother, Hassan who cooked delicious food, Matti, a builder, worked tirelessly to help us make the mud hut and was also our host at the Ksar, Quider made mixing mud look effortless (it isn’t!) as well as Brahim, Said, Alan, Barri (please excuse my spelling) and a big thankyou to Mohammed’s parents. This trip was special and memorable. It has left us with very positive memories of a lovely community of people and sense of the wonder for the desert environment. We couldn’t recommend Mohammed and his team more highly

I cannot thank Mohamed, Abdoo, Hassan, Petrana and the rest of the crew at Camel Trek Morocco enough. This familial group, dedicated to guiding travelers through the desert landscape, shared parts of their lives and welcomed my friend and I with open arms. We did a five-day walking trek with Adboo and Hassan. We walked and talked and found our rhythm together, we cooked by the fire and made bread in the sand, we camped under the stars, and slept alongside our three camel companions. I have traveled in many different parts of the world, alone and with others, and while of course every place reveals its own qualities and opportunities to learn, it was this group of people that allowed for a kind of shared experience that made this trip so memorable and special for me, and I highly recommend getting to know them and making your own journey.

I really don't even know where to begin, and I don't think it is possible to fully explain the incredible life changing experience I had during my week in the desert with Mohamed, Abdoo, Hassan, and the whole Camel Trek Morocco crew. I really didn't know what to expect when I booked the trek - I just knew that I wanted to spend time walking through the desert. My friend and I met Mohamed in Ouarzazate and spent our first day driving south towards M'hamid, stopping along the way at various scenic locations and old kasbahs. We spent our first night in Camel Trek Morocco's desert camp in the dunes outside of M'hamid. My friend and I were blown away by our first night in camp, and didn't think the trip could get any better. We had a lovely simple berber tent, with mattresses and carpets - and we were served a delicious dinner before hanging out around the campfire under the stars. The next day we began our trek with our two guides, Hassan and Abdoo, and our three camels. We instantly became fast friends with Abdoo and Hassan who made our trip absolutely amazing. Their smiles and humor, and guidance through the week were always welcomed. Over the five days we spent walking, I couldn't believe how many different landscapes we traversed. The desert changed drastically from hour to hour and day to day, and then ended up in the big dunes on January 1st. What a way to start the New Year. Our last night at the camp was very bitter sweet. Both my friend and I agreed we could have trekked for another week with Adboo and Hassan and we were not ready to go back...I will return to Mohamed's camp without a doubt and I plan to bring friends and family back, so that they too, may understand the Sahara.
