Our stay at Erg Chigaga was one of our top family vacations ever. They simply get every detail right. Nick's pre-travel logistics and communication are fast and efficient; he even helped solve an unrelated Morocco travel problem for me on New Year's Day. Bobo and the camp staff are friendly, fun, and completely accommodating. The setting is stunning, the tents... More

Less than a week ago my sister and I were riding camels over the dunes, sitting by a campfire listening to Berber music, lying on handwoven rugs to watch the canopy of stars move across the night sky, and just sitting, listening to the silence. Today, back home and halfway around the world, I’m already planning a trip back. Our... More

This was one of the most special experiences my husband and I have ever had. The staff and facilities are top notch. They made it easy and comfortable to experience the Sahara in a totally special and magical way. From arranging travel and guides, to delicious meals, incredible music under the stars, camel treks and tea with Bedouin nomads, they... More

Our trip to Morocco would not have been complete without our luxury desert camp experience at the Erg Chigaga. Huge thanks to Nick for his generous logistics help before our trip; to our highly skillful driver, Abdoul, for his kindness and humor while getting us safely to the camp; and to the most gracious and hardworking GM of any 5-Star...

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
