Enjoy the unique experience of camel riding over the golden sand dunes, for an overnight in camel safari camp, deep in the heart of the desert to see the surprisingly beautiful Sand dunes with its playful fusion of light and shadow, during the colour parts of the mornings at the sunrise, or in the evening at the sunset , Imagine yourself on camel back, riding through the Sahara desert over a soft ocean of sand waves , where silence is only disturbed by the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand

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.

I just arrived from a 2 week holiday in Morocco and my night out in Erg Chebbi was definitely the highlight of my trip. We went on a 3-day tour Camelsafaries.com, starting from Marrakech through the High Atlas mountains, stopping by many amazing sights in south-eastern Morocco, the first night in Dades Gorge and day 2 camping out in the desert in a berber tent, and the last day driving through the Middle Atlas mountains onto Fés. I think what made our desert experience so great was because of Ali, he really took care of us and despite the long distance from Marrakech to the desert and then to Fés, we stopped to see so many things that it didn't feel like a long car ride. Ali talked the whole way tirelessly explaining every little detail, I felt bad at times when I would nod off because he was making so much of an effort and I really appreciated it as opposed to someone just driving you. The things we saw were amazing too. The snow covered High Atlas and Middle Atlas mountains, monkeys in the cedar forest, several Casbahs (the best being Aït Benhaddou) and Oases, and some impressive valleys like Todra Gorge. We couldn't have seen these places in the amount of time on our own, nor would we have dared driving through those scary roads at the High Atlas mountains. When we got to the desert, I couldn't believe my eyes. It looked like a painting! I took a bottle full of sand from the Sahara as a souvenir just to show friends how red the sand is. The night out was also quite amazing. Despite the cold weather I got a rug out next to the fire and lay down with 2 thick blankets on top of me and just stared at the stars for ages. Its just amazing how lit up the sky is when there are no lights. The tents themselves are very traditional except for the beds inside, but i appreciated this since i already lay on the sand next to fire and couldn't imagine doing that for the night. If anyone is ever considering a trip to Morocco don't just hang out in the big cities like Marrakesh or Fés, make the effort to see the desert it really is worth it! Weeks before this trip when I was in Thailand for xmas, I remember talking to some norwegian tourists in my hotel who told me how unremarkable their desert tour was and how uncomfortable the camel ride was but I have to say the camel ride did not feel uncomfortable at all. It was very well cushioned and I was on such a high during the 2 hr camel ride that by the time it ended i was like .. oh are we there already??

There are a host of Camel Camps to choose from - this is a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn't be missed! We road camels out (2 hours each way) on the dunes to a camp and spent the night in a snug warm tent! After dinner, we walked without lanterns across the top of the dunes, laid in the soft sand and looked at the constellations. It was an evening I will never forget!

I traveled two times with Jonas around Morocco and spend some night on his camel safari camp in the desert . Both travels with this guy were interesting. Jonas is interesting man. Every time he has great ideas about how to spend the time. He is very clever and smart and we always had many things to talk about. We were never bored together. I really would recommend Jonas as a guide and as well a travel comrade.

My 12 days in the country were challenging, full of joy, awe, wonder, and rewards.
Over that days me and my friends, we have visited the city of Marrakech, Ouzoud, Todra Gorg, Merzouga, Tinghir, Ouarzazat, Midelt, abandon village near Midelt, Agadir, Taghazoud and the Sahara Desert.

Camel Safari Camp was our guide, helped booked hostles, rent car, navigated the route and show us the most popular and interesting places in Morocco. He helped with everything, and we experienced and saw a lot more than we had if we had been alone. Thanks our guide, we didn’t experienced any harassment, which is common in Morocco. We felt safe and looked after.

This trip was amazing, we covered so much ground in such a short amount of time. Morocco was more diverse than we expected, I mean combination of the changing landscape, rich cultural heritage, the people we met… and of course the delicious food that we ate. Especially, amazing vegetable tagines, Berber omelets, beautiful salads, and when we were at the coast – good fish.

What is important, Morocco is a cheap country, even for polish people, I spend less than I thought, over 500$, without guide and any Purchases, of course.

We started our trip in Marrakesh, where we spend tree days. Our hostel was near the Jemaa el-Fnaa- one of the best-known squares in Marrakesh, it is amazing, lively place. During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, youths with chained Barbary apes, water sellers in colourful costumes with traditional leather water-bags and brass cups, and snake charmers who will pose for photographs for tourists.

Moreover, we’ve seen City walls and Gates, Palaces and Riads, Mosques, Tombs in Marrakesh. Afterwards we went to Ouzoud to see a huge waterfalls and spend time in overhanging cafes.

Next stop was Todra Gorg, high 300 m canyon walls. During the trip to Sahara desert, we’ve seen wonderful Atlas mountains with breathtaking views. Our Sahara venture we started in Merzouga, where we’ve spent night and were going on camel ride. The last days we were going to ocean cost near Agadir, where we’ve spent time on the beach and visited local fish restaurant.
Trip to Morocco will stay in my memory for a long time.

Once in a life, unforgivible Experience in the silence. I would suggest everybody to do it.. It' s a way to extend time, live in contact with the beduins, admire sunset and sunrise and meet people on tge dark of the sand night.

why magic? because of all around that you can see, touch, hear and taste on the desert.
if you wanna ride a camel, see magic sky with millions of stars, if you wanna see how to prepare tajin in the middle of desert and then eat it all ;), if you wanna sleep under real berber tent and have b-fast service with many delicious things around great dunes, if you wanna see unforgetable sunrise&sunset, virgin nature, dry lake and lots of sand ;) don't hesitate to spend at least 2 days with Jonas&his team!
and one more magic thing...with these people you will have days full of healthy laught, really possitive and keep in mind forever

Sitting in a Teahouse in Midelt/Morocco a few years ago, not happy with the Saharatrip we came from (cause the guide,s have, t been nice), studying our travelbook and talking what to do now: Next us was Youness sitting with a friend, asking if we need help, we found him very kindly, at least we trust him. This was our great luck! With Youness we saw parts of Morocco, we would,t find alone. Specially when we visited the 400 hundred years old Kaspar in Atlas Mountain, we felt back to the middle-age. It was a very strong and special experience! I am very happy to met Youness, he is a smart Man, a competent guide, and he became a friend until now! Astrid Gold from Vienna
