One really peaceful oasis, M'Hamid. Although the village needs some tweaking to my 'Western' perception of clean, the entire area feels very rural and real. I have spent 10 days at the bivouac, spending my early mornings on the dunes exploring or simply enjoying the natural sounds, During the day I participated in activities. Sometimes at night there is a... More

Highly reccomended. The views of the dunes are stunning. You can climb up the big ones and watch the sun set and look down on the camp, a circle of traditional nomad tents. The mattress on the ground in the tent is plenty comfortable, and you feel like a desert sultan sleeping in the tent surronded by a floor of... More

If you are looking for a beautiful and educative desert experience, this is the place to go!! At Le Petit Prince you will feel welcome and at home. Also, you will enjoy great food, comfort and magical surroundings. On top of all that, you will support the local community and the development of sustainable tourism!

I made a trip to the Petit Prince Bivouac last year during their Taragalte festival. I just saw on their website that it will be this year on 9,10 and 11 of November so I thought I just write something about my experience of last year. The festival is a 3 day Nomadic festival celebrating the Moussem, the traditional festival... More

Amazing experience to 'camp' in the Sahara dunes just outside town, and the 90 mins camel ride (arranged by our operator Cherg, affiliated with the hotel owner) towards it. The aim is a good mix of the basic camping feeling and enough comfort, but it did not always work out. (Shared) bathrooms are okay and clean, and staff is very... More

Staying in le petit prince has been an amazing experience. Cherg expeditions (formerly Saharia Services), based in both Ouarzazate and M'hamid, organizes 2h camel(4x4 possible) trips to this bivouac on the south bank of the river. The tour and information was great. The bivouac is a 1001night experience in itself. On request they provide guides with astronomic and archeologic experience... More

Two friends and I spent a night in March at Le Petit Prince Camp a few kilometers from M'Hamid and loved it. The camp is made up of several tents for guests with comfortable beds, clean sheets and plenty of blankets, a large tent for meals (delicious couscous and good breakfast) and a small building with showers, toilets and sinks....

We arrived in M'Hamid looking for a Sahara desert experience - and Le Petit Price delivered! Originally we looked for the operators recommended by Lonely Planet, but we found them to be unprofessional, no English or French spoken, and kind of shoddy. We then found another operator (almost the same name as the other one) - something like Sahara Services,... More
