I had a wonderful time here. For the real adventure seekers, you'll have to realize that this is mostly a tourist spot, local morroccan landlines might still have decent signal for phone calls there. Haha. I recommend!

We woke up at 630am to catch the sunrise and then jumped back on the camels for 90 minutes to get back to the hotel. At the... More

We have just returned from a 3 day tour of the Sahara organised by atlsamountainguide. com We booked through them after reading reviews on here. The best part of it was the camel trek into the dunes just after sunset and the night in the nomad camp. The atmosphere was amazing. Our evening meal was served under the stars and... More

We prefer to visit Merzouga desert than Chegaga, so, we have camel trekking, sand boarding, overnight and stargazing then quad biking.

I went on a camel trek out to a berber style camp, the trek lasted about an hour and a half and was long enough as the camel saddles are just a blanket slung over a home made metal and wooden frame but the experience was worth the pain. The tents were hot but cooled down as the evening wore... More

Originally, I wasn't planning on doing the desert tour since our time in Morocco is quite short and with the tour, our schedule will be very tight, but I am glad my travel partner convinced me to do it. She booked the tour with a company she found online prior to the trip, but when we were at the riad... More
