We arrived late after a very long journey to the edge of Erg Chebbi. Ali and his excellent staff could not have been more welcoming. We felt like extended family. An excellent dinner was waiting in the garden and music was played. We had tea near the beautiful pool as we planned our 4x4 excursion for the following morning and also received more information about our planned overnight adventure to the berber tent camp in the dunes. Mohammed was a fantastic guide the following morning and we highly recommend taking the excursion to see flamingos, the black desert and even a stop for tea with a nomad. We then returned to the guest house for lunch and to prepare for our overnight. If you are at all worried about doing an overnight camp into the dunes, this is the place you'll want to do it with. Ali made sure we were comfortable and even stayed with us until we were securely up on our camels and ready for the 90 minute ride to the dunes to catch sunset. the whole experience was definitely an adventure - this is a true tent camp with limited amenities - but it's an experience we won't forget. Dinner was great and sunrise over the dunes made it very much worth it. We returned the next morning for a shower and breakfast before saying goodbye to Ali and his beautiful twin boys! We highly recommend this guesthouse as part of a great Moroccan holiday.
