Our experience in the desert with Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp was amazing. The site was very remote; we didn't see any other visitors other than the camp's other guests. The food was excellent, and after 3+ weeks in Morocco we'd had many great meals. The common and dining tents were very relaxing and well arranged for enjoying our time....

We only had a couple days in Morocco, so could only do 1 night in the desert. After our experience, our group of 4 (2 couples) agreed it was still worth the 8 hour drive back and forth to Marrakech to have this experience in the desert that's like no other. Bobo, Nick, and their team at the camp are...

Impeccable attention to detail. Tents are spacious and comfortable. Staff is attentive and personable with itineraries being adjusted to match your mood, condition, and current weather. I highly recommend allowing Nick and team to put together a packaged, private for you. His carefully crafted itinerary of the Atlas, desert and palmeries made our Morocco trip absolutely perfect. He even recommended...

We spent 2 nights at the Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp at the end of September and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing our experience was. First of all, the location. It's not easy to get to but when you do arrive, you'll be thankful. Otherwise, it would be crowded like every other tourist destination. We flew into...

The teaming of a Brit with high hospitality credentials and an indigenous Berber caretaker and his staff on the nomadic region of the Sahara has resulted in an exquisite travel adventure. Not enough rating stars to prepare one for desert dune and oasis days by camel and nights blinded by shooting stars and a Milky Way that appears within reach....

As part of our family Morocco trip we definitely wanted to experience some true Sahara/desert feeling. We chose the M'Hamid area & Nick Garsten's camp because: - much less touristic areas compared to Merzouga - true desert / sand driving to / from the camp (90 minutes in a 4x4) - very exclusive setting with luxury tents, private in-tent bathrooms...

I traveled from Marrakesh to the desert with our wonderful guide Mohammed. We stopped at various places along the way. The Argon Oil spot, great lunch, Kasbahs, etc. The landscape through the Atlas Mountains was gorgeous. It was a long drive but not boring. We arrived at the camp just before sunset. We met Bashir and he & Mohammed took...
