My husband and I stayed at the beautiful luxury desert camp for our one year wedding anniversary. For the first two nights we were the only guests at the camp and the staff were totally charming and inviting and made us very comfortable. My husband mentioned our anniversary to the staff, so on the night of our anniversary, out of... More

The location and setting of this camp is truly amazing. Travelling by 4x4, the camp is about 50 minutes drive into the desert from the end of the road at M'hamid. The isolation, small number of tents at the camp and the attentive service from staff all contribute to the feeling that you could be the only guests here. My... More

Some elements of our stay at the Luxury Desert Camp were indeed luxurious and the proximity to the dunes added to the experience. Our tent was set apart from the main camp just over a dune which gave us privacy and a good view. It was well furnished and comfortable with carpets and huge bed. There was electricity and a... More

Many thanks for your helpful comments. One of the challenges in running the business is to ensure that whilst the camp is a place to meet others guests and be sociable, it is also important that there is peace, quiet and tranquility. That is one of the major reason why people come to the desert. We then need to manage... More

Its been said on here many times but what an incredibly magical camp. We were a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 7 and 3. We travelled during the Easter break so shared the camp with a few other families which added to the experience. Nick was incredibly helpful organising the trip and kindly responding to all my emails.... More

This is such an amazing place. We had such a warm and humorous welcome and I'm just so sorry it was only for one night - it was fully booked so we couldn't stay another... So we ended up turning up in time for the evening and the sunset, and then headed off after sunrise and a quick camel ride.... More

Amazing experience. And you're in the middle of the desert. Wow. And good food and comfortable tents. Unreal. A once-in-a-lifetime experience. My only grumbles would be 1) too many kids, which made the place more noisy than relaxing, and 2) fairly absent and indifferent staff, so you don't really know what's going on. We stayed three nights, which bordered on... More

Many thanks for your review! I am delighted your overall experience was "amazing", and appreciate your frank feedback tooo… There are families at the camp at certain times of year - Xmas, Easter and sometimes the end of October. Whilst we do have two private camps that offer total tranquility, I do understand your concerns. It was busy over the... More

The Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp is an incredible place to experience the beauty and charm of the Sahara desert as well as the Berber people of Morocco.

Everything about this trip surpassed our expectations! Truly superlative. Believe the reviews! My partner and I booked a 5 day trip into the desert with Nick this March. Nick was brilliant and tailored the trip to our needs exactly. As we needed to finish up our trip in Mirleft on the coast rather than back in Marrakech, Nick planned us... More

My husband and I found this camp in a Travel & Leisure article while researching options for our two week holiday to Spain and Morocco, and I can actually say that the glowing article under-sold how fantastic this place is in reality. From the very first email we exchanged with Nick to our drop-off at the Marrakech airport at the... More

I had a work event in Marrakech and researched possible options online. While I was extremely nervous about booking something this remote and different sight unseen and without personal history, this was the best thing that I've done in a long long time. I worked with Nick via email and planned a three night trip that included one stay at... More
