I am so so so so glad we were able to spend two nights here! Nick went above and beyond helping us arrange our Moroccan adventure so we could visit all the cities we wanted to see and still manage to catch one of the bi-weekly flights out to the desert. The amount of thought, time and effort Nick and... More

My mom and I just spent two nights at this camp. We really enjoyed the experience overall. The drive over was long but comfortable in the Jeep and Abba made the trip very enjoyable and stopped whenever we wanted to take pictures or grab a coffee/mint tea. We rode dromaderies at sunset and frankly it was fantastic. My mom has... More

As we drove for 4 hours into the Sahara I began to question my decision to spend time in the desert and then we got to camp! It was magical. What an amazing experience. I cannot say enough about the staff. They were absolutely spectacular and went out of their way to share their lifestyle with us. If you are... More

My friend and I did a 4 day trip to the desert, spending 2 nights at the luxury camp. It was the highlight of our stay in Morocco! The camp is run by Bobo, one of the nicest people around. He made us feel like we were home. The camp itself is in the middle of the desert, which means... More

We stayed at the camp for three nights in mid-April as part of our honeymoon and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I booked through Nick and he helped me plan our 16-day honeymoon in Morocco which included reserving us drivers, rooms at amazing riads in Marrakech & Fes and booking everything for us right down to...

Let me preface this review by saying we went in early may and the day time temp was 44 with windy/ blowing sand. Nick was great to work with organizing everything for transport to other hotels. Camp staff was very nice and food was very good. Great beds. Fun experience but a long trip even if you fly into Zagora.... More

Many thanks for the review! I am being very British here apologising for the heat, but the first week of May this year was unseasonably hot. 44 degrees is a heat one could expect in July and August. Luckily the heatwave lasted only one week. We have just upgraded our solar power system. We will now be able to put... More

We stayed at the camp two nights in December 2014 and this place is still lingering with us- i found myself bragging about it with a fellow traveler even today. The fact it took me more than 4 months to even write a review is because i am still struggling to find the right words to describe this insanely gorgeous... More

I can't begin to express how happy we were with our stay at this camp. Everything was picture perfect. Our journey began months before with us contacting Nick, the camp's owner. Nick made sure the process of reserving and planning the trip was easy. He took care of arranging for our pick up in Marrakech and drive all the way... More

On an absolute scale, this Desert Camp is the best. In a wonderful, two week trip to Morocco, the desert was the highlight. It is magical and magnificent and should be part of any trip to Morocco. Seeing the dune at sunset is worth the trip. The tents are comfortable; the food is excellent and, most importantly, the staff added... More

We started this adventure months ago when we first contacted Nick about the camp. He was so good about helping us plan an itinerary for 6 people and arranging transport and offering advice. When the day of our departure finally arrived, two of our party were unable to make the trip. Nick worked with us over the phone at our... More
