moroccan safari

Hi,we( husand and 7 years old dauther , and an other couple from france ) spend time at Erg Chebbi - we went (admitteedly 3 months ago) and it was pretty easy to organise a camel safari either in Ourzazate or in the little hamlet right next to the erg chebbi dunes (can't remember its name). we have booked a private transport with Hassan ( spanish/frensh/english speaker who were our unforgettable guide) and drove easily enough down to that little hamlet (Erfoud, I think, it just came back to me).

camping outside of tents was cold (February) but great.

Nearby there is a town called Rissani which is photogenic in its own way. It has a market .When I was there, there were very few foreigners about. Our funny driver/guide who took us on the camel safari to driving his Toyota Land-Cruiser there - I didn't have the courage to hammer a hire car (luckily Hassan made everythings easily for us , we has an experience adventures on sands driving also .

Enjoy - it's a great place and very beautiful. Keep smiling with all the carpet salesmen. They're cool if you don't lose yours! R .

I’ll have a re-think to get back to this descent land for a twice hiring Hassan for other tours on Mauntains and other rest tourist cities such as , Essaouira , Agadir , Fes and Tanger.

I appologize for my bad English Language ( i’m a Portugeese)

So joyfull we have got our driver/guide’s emails :

We really would like the rest new Moroccan tourists to enjoy their holiday days with Hassan.

Warm regards.
