1 Day and 1 Night Starts with a camel trek which is normally of about 2 hours in length, but the length and route may vary with weather and dune form. The trek leaves the kasbah in the afternoon in order to arrive at the camp by sunset where a tasty traditional dinner is prepared on a campfire under the night sky.  Sleep in your own tents with nice bed linen (doubles or triple) sharing toilet facilities. Return to kasbah for shower after breakfast. NOTE: It is not possible to reach this site by vehicle.

Planning Your Trip

When planning your trip to the Saharan dunes please bear in mind:

  • We strongly advise it be part of a trip of at least a week’s duration (ideally 10 days or more for those wishing to visit areas outside the desert too) as the Sahara is about 9 hours by road from Fez and Marrakech.
  • Ideally visit between late Sept to early May to avoid the heat.
  • For further advice please ask our staff who know Morocco, the staff & the treks well. Please contact us on 01239 710814 or 0845 345 7195 (local call rate).
