“Africa Sahara!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

The erg chebbi sand dunes were incredible. We had a blast just running up and down the dunes, and getting sand everywhere! What a sight.

We can't wait to go back!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

It was amazing to explore the desert from the dunes, to the black sand. There are nomad camps, abandoned military camps. The views are mazing. It is a must see if you are in morocco. But don't make your way to algeria! 50 km away.

“a most memorable night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

Sunset over the Sahara, dinner in a dining tent, a night under the stars, awakened to the sunrise. Peaceful, surreal, transcendent. The highlight of our trip!

“A fabulous place to connect with yourself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015

The night I spent under the full moon, in the Merzouga Desert, is one of the most energetically powerful nights of my life. The desert is more beautiful than I could have imagined. Such an incredible place to spend a bit of time!
