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.

The only downside was the accompanying people who insisted on loud chatter and sarcastic comments which, in our opinion, were offensive to our amazing guides. We felt safe and in good hands in the beautiful desert, and once the others went to sleep, we stayed up with the guides playing drums, telling stories, watching "desert movies" (feeding the fenec foxes) and looking at the stars and that experience was one of the best in my life. The accomodation was fantastic - a 4 bed tent to the 2 of us and a western-style toilet in a cosy atmosphere

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 spent 3 weeks in Morocco with friends back then in 2008 and after traveling by car and after visiting all the major interests places by ourselves, we were so lucky to meet Jounes, a kind guy working for Camel Safari Camp which leaded us in a beautiful yet small resort at the border of the Desert. That was a lucky shot after a tour de force touching Marrakech, Fes, Midelt, Ouarzazate, El Rachidia and a lot of other small villages. Way before guiding us in the small resort, our guide guided us all the way through Midelt, showing us the beauty of that almost abandoned place and introucing us a local family, which invited in for dinner and gave us hospitality for the night. for free. We could appreciate the goodness and warm hug of the local people, and learn how to get back in touch with a simple life. We also played a soccer match with some El Rachidia military troops transiting there in Midelt at that time!!!! But it was only when we reached the Resort that we went nuts (positively!!!) and could finally rest in a beautiful room, with all the comfort of typical beds and the possibility to have an idyllic dinner with local vegetables, fruits and the company of our guide himself. Which of course managed everything for us, from reservation to organizing the next day walk in the desert riding camels. Especially for the latter one, the organization was simply perfect. And flawless. We had been able to taste the hot weather in the middle os the sand dunes, and spent the night in tent with locals drinking tea, and eating and talking....until the next morning. When we had the privilege to see the sunrising sitted down on top of sand dunes. We waited for the sun to warm us again after a cold night. And went back to the resort before the sun was getting too hot. The Camel Safari camp was crucial for the organization, and allowed us to fully enjoy the experience without being so worried about reservations...getting food... and such. Our guide took care of everything and made us feel at home, loved and cared. NOTE - Everything took place in August 2008. I had to put August 2015 just because trip advisor do not let me put in such an old date. But SINCE 2008 Camel Safari Camp take care of their guests in a marvellous way!!!!

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.

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.

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.

We took a three day trip in the month of July. Probably not something they would organise without pressing. Big amounts of water were carried by our one bumped vessels. Taking off early in the morning and stopping before the sun hit the zenith. Surviving the midday heat in what I recall to be a sauna without an exit. Refreshment of cold water from a drinking well always came as a great surprise. I remember the hardship of the heat as a special experience that didn't harm me, but broadened my view of wat life in the dessert could be like. The sleeping places were basic and traditional in a berber tent. Food provided was sublime in the setting of a magical dessert night filled with quite the number of stars.. Our guide proofed to be knowledged and experienced as well as in possession of good humor.

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
