Trek Detail

This trek is only available to those who stay at Dar Azawad in M'hamid, conveniently located in a tiny palm grove amongst the sand dunes south of Zagora.

The camel trek starts at the hotel and travels over the Saharan dunes for 7 km to a beautiful, private and very professionally run encampment, Erg Laanti, well away from other such sites. The camp is very comfortable with hammam, toilets, carpeted tents with mattresses and sheets. The evening meal is excellent and there is traditional entertainment. See the sunset and sunrise and, after a superb breakfast, return by camel to the hotel (4x4 option also available).

What's Included

Included are tuition, public liability insurance, meals (lunch on day treks) and drinks on longer treks, camping equipment except sleeping bags, traditional musical entertainment.

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).
