How are the tent camps organized?

Three years ago we stayed at a tent camp in the Wahibi desert in Oman. This was a great experience. Now we would like to stay at one of the Erg Chebbi desert camps for two nights. But we are wondering how things are organized here. Does every tour group and hotel have their own group of tents far away from the others (like in Oman) or do they all stick together? Are the tents really inside the dunes or at the edge of the dunes (near the hotels). Thanks for your help.

Thanks Sam for your informative reply and giving the coordinates of the camp so we can all see.

I'd love the experience of desert camping but I'd hate to be in a desert corral. Cheers

HI Zinfanatic,

Yes, a camel ride is included in your price for camping, and so is a ride over the dunes. Depending on how you arrive in Merzouga, they will meet your bus or meet you at an auberge just outside of Merzouga where you will leave your car while you are with them. Your car will be safe. They usually head out to the camp in the late afternoon. So you are met by Ali or Sara, you have a soft drink, they wrap your head in a scarf, you get on your camel and ride through the desert for over an hour. Or if you arrive later when it will get dark too soon, they will drive you out to the camp and you can do your camel trek on the way back to Merzouga.

From a syntactic analysis of the post by "angelstrof" it seems pretty clear that rather than being German he is French speaking, and probably Moroccan.

The same I was thinking also when I answered now to thread "Fez to Marrakesh".
