We wanted to spend quality time with camels and the sahara sky, so I liased with Hakim and he was prompt to respond. Whilst we were there, his cousin Ahmed took us on our drive to Erg Chebbi. He was stoic and respectful, and would stop for "photo express" moments for us to stretch our legs, capture a few images, or wave him on, whichever we preferred.

The camel ride at sunset was fantastic, enough said. Waddling through soft silty sand and taking silly photos with the dusking sky behind us was just amazing. We had dinner of various tagines and spent the night in Berber tents, and loved huddling in the thick blankets with the wind whistling past outside.

The next morning we awoke to catch the sunrise - a perfect way to end the most memorable leg of our trip to Morocco.

I had the BEST time with Hakim and his staff! His number one priority was that we enjoyed ourselves. He is very professional, sweet, accommodating and knowledgeable about the desert, Morocco and Amazigh culture. He was more than happy to answer any questions we had. The trip into the sand dunes was magical! After we watched the sunset, we made our way to the camp site (very comfortable and beautifully decorated), where we had a delicious dinner and danced and sang the night away. Anyone who is considering a camel trek into the desert should definitely contact Hakim. You will have the time of your life! Happy Trekking!

Hakim and Said were wonderful guides in Morocco. We could never have had such a memorable trip without them. Said picked us up where we were staying and drove us through the mountains and into the desert where we met Hakim. We rode camels into the sunset, spent an amazing night in the desert with music and tangine, and rode out with the sunrise the next morning. Both guides did everything they could to make sure we had a wonderful experience. I did quite a bit of research before chosing this particular trek and I'm certain I made the right choice! I will remember their wisdom and hospitality and beautiful culture for the rest of my life, and hopefully will get the chance to return for more time in the desert for a real nomad experience, INSHALLAH!

I've enjoyed the sunset, sun rise and the stars in desert very much. It was the best experience in Morocco. Hakim and Siad are very helpful and professional. Todra Gorges and Aitbenhaddou are beautiful as well.

We had a great time with Moroccan Desert Trips led by Hakim. He took well care of his guests and prepeared the best trip ever we could have asked. He is very knowledgeable with the whole desert trek as we did use the black desert to return after our overnight stay.
Hakim took extra effort when I had stomach upset and he ensured I get remedies just before taking the bus back to Marrakech!
Top man and well recommended!
