I’ve been a few times here, it’s the first time at the Dakhla Spirit Camp though and the Hamaini Family amazed me with the Dakhla Spirit concept. But let’s start with the general info. After all the times I came here now I still haven’t got tired: kiting is on whenever you want (even if it happens there too, it is very rare that you don’t have enough wind for two or more days), you really can slow down from busy working life, put your watch away, get up with the rising sun and go to sleep when you are tired, the desert landscape is breath taking and actually the first thing you see in the morning.
Breakfast and two three-course meals are served on the covered terrace with an amazing view. The food is mostly traditional moroccan but you will always find something you know from back home if you prefer. Water is for free during the eating times, you can get everything else at the bar like snacks, limonades, bottles of water, alcoholic drinks or wine and even fresh fruit juices!
The accommodation goes from tents with a bed, electric light and a plug to charge whatever you need (which is actually my favorite accommodation) to premium bungalows with an incredible view on the lagoon and private toilet/shower on the spot itself or even a classic hotel room back in Dakhla town.
Different activities can be organized, like a day at the wave spot, a downwinder (about 15km), an evening at Dakhla town, a meal at the oyster farm… even Yoga classes are proposed in the morning before breakfast and a stretching session in the evening before dinner.
The concept is very familiar. You can meet many nice people from all over the world in a relaxed and open-minded environment. You eat all together and if you travel alone you will make friends very fast. From djembe evenings around the fireplace or dancing and partying to the latest beats, just reading a book or chatting around a bottle of wine with other Spirit-campers, you can have it all.
Go and enjoy your kite vacations at Dakhla Spirit :) I really can recommend the place!
