Would it be silly for a single female to book a desert tour? Even in a group?

Hi,

Have a look at the posts in the Morocco top questions box on the right of that page for lots of advice and opinion about travel safety for female travellers.

It would not be silly and you have to do it anyway because you cannot go alone to sand dunes of course. Find some accommodation in Erg Chebbi and they arrange for you the trip without problem.

No worries! The only danger you'll face is that you'll fall under the spell of the Sahara...you'll be hypnotized by the millions of stars, and then you'll fall madly in love with one of your camel guides, and have the most romantic night of your life in the Moroccan desert ... It happens... ;) Have fun! You'll be perfectly safe ;)

So right - "you'll be hypnotized by the millions of stars," :)

And they are hanging on each other all the way to the land and build one big big wall

I just got back from doing this with my 14 year old daughter. Felt totally safe the whole time we were in Morroco and met lovely, hospitable people. Definitely do it - it was mindblowing. :)

I'm planning on doing something similar in April. Still debating on erg chi gaga vs. chebbi. Looking for a very quiet gorgeous tranquil escape with time for reading, hiking, and listening to music.
