Returned home yesterday, and already missing the beauty and stillness of the Sahara. We were extremely lucky that our trip went ahead, and Nick, Bobo and the team clearly went to great lengths to enable this for us and our fellow Aussie campers following the deeply unusual rain that hit Morocco just before we arrived. To go to those lengths... More

My husband and I have just returned from a visit to the Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp (http://ergchigagaluxurycamp.com) run by Nick Garsten and his Moroccan partner Bobo. I have made several attempts to write this review only to be faced with the difficulty of finding an adequate vocabulary to describe the experience of visiting the Sahara desert: awesome, remarkable and...

My wife and I spent the night in the camp. It is an outstanding experience. We arrived after dark and took the 1km camel ride to the camp. We dismounted the camels and there was nothing but sand around us. The guide secured the camels and motioned for us to climb the dune. At the top we saw the camp... More

To say this was the highlight of our Moroccan trip would be an understatement! From the minute we were fetched from our beautiful riad in Marrakesh (TM Nights - recommended by Nick) to when we said goodbye to our incredible guide/driver (and now Facebook mate!) Oualid, we felt as if we were in the best possible hands. The luxurious tents,... More

This is tent-camping at its best. We had a king-size bed in our tent, a dresser, a lounge chair, and other things that made it seem like a hotel room. The wind at night lulled us to sleep. The "bathrooms" are fine, as long as you understand that this IS tent camping in the desert. The toilet is a chemical... More

We are a couple in our twenties from New York that traveled to Morocco for the first time. We are seasoned travelers but nothing could have prepared us for the Luxury Camp in Erg Chigaga. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience - absolutely magical and extraordinary. The landscape is spectacular, the camp itself is jaw dropping in... More

This place is amazing, the activities are fantastic, especially the dune boarding, but the best part has to be the Sahara itself. The camp offers spectacular views of the dunes, it's definitely worth seeing the sun rise and set if you go and do some star gazing. The staff couldn't be more helpful and nothing is too much trouble, this... More

Bobo and Nick's desert camp was the highlight of our recent trip to Morocco! As no doubt other reviews have raved - the tented camp was absolutely peaceful (star gazing, trekking on camels, sunset on the high dunes, lounging on hammocks) while the camp staff made our entire stay comfortable with daily fresh baked bread, delicious crepes, hot water for...

The unusual experience of rain in the desert has been covered by many of the recent reviewers, some of whom we met on our trip: hello again! All I'll add is that the happiness the locals felt about all that rain was infectious, and so despite not being able to make use of the wonderful hammocks and sun loungers at... More

This is a short and sweet review of Bobo and Nick's desert camp because it's indescribably magical and deserves to be explored without too much hype! The camp is both luxurious and simple. You truly feel a million miles away from everything. The staff, who are mostly friends of Bobo's, all come from and know the Sahara well. We were... More
