This was the highlight of our morokko holidays. We went on a four days kamel trekking trough the desert. The guides brahim and achmad where super nice and we learned a lot from them about the desert and the nomad life. It was an amazing experience to have a real glimpse on that special way of living. And the morning views are stunning. Also they cared very good for us, gave us a welcoming feeling and good fresh (but way too much) food. A vegetarian option was always cooked for me. We could ride and walk through the desert. We are normally sporty and could do it but where quite tired after the three hours walks. We slept in the tent but outside would also have been possible with the face in the stars. Showers are only available in erg chigaga but thats okay. A torch, a light sleeping bag in summer and a scarf to protect the head during the day from the sun is very recommanded, also bring enough sun screen. For pictures its better to take only a go pro and mobile phones. Good cameras could suffer from the fine sand. We would totally do it again its a one in a lifetime experience! We loved it. :-)

My husband and 2 teenage sons and I stayed 2 nights in Sahara services camp end of December.
Honestly I want to take the staff home with me. Ali who is our host& server is so professional. The chef Khalid cooks delicious food one can’t believe is possible at a camp. The camps driver Assou is the loveliest gentleman. And our private guide, muhamid who accompanied us and stayed with us there is over the top great
The tent was lovely and deluxe. The music which the staff played at night by the fire was delightful. And we went by camel for an exquisite lunch which our staff set up.
And the ATV nearby over the dunes was so fun.

During our stay the temperature went up to 48 degrees so the a/c was very welcome as I don't think we would have been able to sleep otherwise. My wife and I were the only 2 guests at the time and we were very well treated.
I had a swim in the pool before we were served a delicious meal in the evening beside the pool. Although not a luxury hotel it is a great place to stay .The facilities are rather basic but the situation is good.

The hotel complex at M’hamid is large and inviting. A beautiful pool, restaurant(good!), and many different lounging areas for you to choose from to relax.
The next day we took a 2 hour jeep ride to the desert camp by the dunes. Tents with comfortable beds and electricity. Lots to do, sand boarding, climbing to dunes for sunsets and camel treks are just a few. We took a camel trek and had lunch with a nomad family. Our guide Ali was amazing! He spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about the area. The food was great, and the staff out there was very gracious! I highly recommend Sahara Services and their guides, especially Ali!

The staff treated us like royalty. The hotel was fabulous with a beautiful pool. Our camel trek was perfect. Our guide,Ali spoke good English and had a love of the desert that was incredible and contagious. The desert camp was very comfortable and meals were delicious and abundant! The gorgeous dunes surrounded the camp and the night sky showed off billions of stars. Awesome experience!

We had a great experience driving from Mhamid to Erg Chegaga camp. The crew was great, the camp is very pretty and the team very welcoming! This wild part of the desert is wild and still inhabited by Berber tribes.
I recommend 🙂

my husband booked our trip to the desert through Sahara Services and we were very glad we did--atop the dunes he and our daughter met a number of tourists staying at other nearby campsites who were extremely unhappy with conditions at their sites; we however were thrilled with ours.

Our driver, Saleh, was excellent, reliable and safe and took us to rest stops with very clean bathrooms. It's a very long drive from Marrakech, no two ways about it, so brace yourself for being jostled about and for lots of hairpin turns--if you get car sick, prepare accordingly.
But the drive through the High Atlas Mts is beautiful and interesting.

We stayed at the Kasbah in M'Hamid the night before embarking on the desert part of the trip, and the accommodations were very nice, the staff excellent, and the food very good.
Our only regret is we had no idea there was a swimming pool (a beautiful one!) and we didn't bring our bathing suits. Oh also would be great if they had umbrellas around the pool as mid-day it was smokin' hot and only one chair captured some shade from a palm tree. The waiter who served us all three meals was lovely and very sweet and attentive--can't remember his name but he was good-looking ;-).

Our guide for the desert,Yusef, was excellent and very attentive and sweet.

The tent was large and clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms far better than I'd expected--didn't even know there'd be a shower (wasn't exactly luxury but it worked!).

Food at the desert camp was very good and the portions huge (although truth be told, this was the end of our week in Morocco and we had gotten a little tired of the standard Morocco fare by then; plus two of our group also had contacted some food- or water-born bug in Marrakech so we felt awfully rude not eating much while there, but we really just couldn't...

The camel ride was a lot of fun--2 hours each way with a lengthy rest in the l'Oasis les Amis I believe it was called. Our camel master, Mubareck I think was his name, was delightful and very sweet.

By the time we got there it was HOT, and basically you hang out there till it becomes bearable to ride back under the late-afternoon sun. So we hung out in the open-air tent, ate nuts and had mint tea, then had a full lunch (pasta! we were sort of excited for something different!), then just lazed around and read, which was quite relaxing. I would suggest bringing toilet paper for the bathroom there though.

The dunes are amazing--my husband and daughter climbed to the top; I bailed after climbing some shorter ones--would have loved to have gotten to the top but it's really hard climbing through that sand and even they struggled with it. Regardless, sunset was magnificent.

We'd hoped to lie beneath a blanket of stars at night but there were clouds and the moon was nearing half full, so the two nights we were there the stars weren't much. However on the 2nd night i woke around 1:45 am and went out and found the sky awash and stars; we even got to see shooting stars! It didn't last long--within about a half hour a wind storm whipped up, ushering in clouds and of course blinding sand, so no sleeping beneath the stars!

Very glad we used Sahara Services and would definitely recommend them.

Oh, be sure you bring your own water! I'd suggest bringing a little toilet paper as well...They had it but they ran out on our last morning there.

After visiting the dunes of Erg Chebbi I arrived in Mhamid to see Erg Chegaga and to experience the difference. At the beginning of Mhamid there is this new auberge Kasbah Sahara Services. They have nice rooms with private bath, hot water, but the facility is still new and the garden is not yet green. But the dinner was very good and they played music for us. The charming owner Abdou is also the boss of Sahara Services, so of course I booked a trip to the desert with him.
After breakfast the camels were waiting for us and we took a 2-hour-ride on the camels with the guide funny Boubou, my god, this hurts! I prefer much more to walk behind, but I needed this experience once in my life. We, a small group of tourists from several countries, had lunch in a little oasis and after a rest were picked up by 4x4. The trip to Chegaga is just too long for the camels in one day, we would need at least 4 days to arrive. The tour showed us different types of the desert, first small sand dunes, then Hamada, a stony plain. There was this large Oued Latache, meaning “river of thurst”. I can understand the name, but we had water enough in our car. A small tourist boy was offered to sit on the drivers lap to drive the car himself and he was very proud. The people here just have a feeling for kids.
The bivouac is on the foot of the large Erg Chegaga sand dunes. A small compound with maybe 10 tents and a restaurant tent. The was also shower and toilet, but of course no running water, no electricity, no phone service. This is the desert, not the city. We climbed the dunes to see a spectacular sunset.
It is a big difference between Erg Chebbi and Erg Chegaga, but I can still not decide which one is better. I think both are worth visiting. Near Chegaga there are no inhabitants at all, only desert, next village 55 km away. Near Erg Chebbi there is Merzouga, Hassi Labiad and also the asphalt road, here you can only go by 4x4. There are quite a few bivouacs around the dunes, you can hear the tamtams from far, but it is still more original as Erg Chebbi, where about 60 massive hotels are situated in front of the dunes.
The night was unforgettable. Millions of stars, we had very good service from the staff who provided tea and food endlessly. After dinner they played lighted a big fire and played music. Some of the people we met in the camp arrived with camels, they had booked a tour of several days and what they told me gave me the idea to do this one other time.
In the morning we drove back after a surprisingly good desert breakfast, stopping at a nomad well, where camels were drinking. Back in the auberge I decided to stay another day to get some rest, it was a Monday and I could visit the weekly souk just next to the auberge.
I recommend Kasbah Sahara Services as the perfect place to stay before a camel trip into the desert. The people are charming, the food is excellent.

We drove down from Kech to M'hamid for 9 hours and got to the hotel around 10pm. Spent only a quick night there before our guide Youssef picked us up the next morning for our 2 hour drive to the camp in the dunes in Erg Chigaga. I don't need to sell you on how amazing a place Erg Chigaga is, but I can sell you on these guys. They are true professionals. Youssef (the guide), Mohammed (the driver) and Barboussa (the camp master) all made us feel at home. They stayed with us the whole time, played drums with us around the fire. If you are going to do this trip, these are the guys to do it with. Make sure to request Youssef (you can also find him directly at Sahara Tour Guide on Facebook). He is knowledgeable, friendly, and just an all around pleasure to be with.
