Morocco Adventure Holidays & Sahara Desert Tours

The Sahara is the world’s largest arid desert and it stretches right across the belly of Africa. It’s a place of mystery and magic, of ancient nomadic traditions and warring tribes. The north-western fringes of the Sahara touch Southern Morocco at the end of the Drâa and Ziz Valleys. The stony plains, dried river beds, shady oases and billowing dunes can be reached on foot, by camel and by 4x4 in the regions of Merzouga and M’Hamid el Ghizlane. No trip to Morocco is complete without spending a wondrous night gazing heavenward at the Milky Way, sleeping in a nomad camp and getting to know this alluring yet sometimes foreboding landscape.

All our Moroccan Sahara desert adventure tours are hosted and escorted by local indigenous Sahraoui people. Our desert drivers are all very experienced in off-road technique and know which tracks to follow and which dunes or rock fields to avoid. Between our indigenous guides, camel-men and 4x4 drivers we ensure your safety in this vast wilderness!

Apart from the list of tours described below, we can arrange tailor-made private expeditions and guided desert tours on foot, camel and/or 4x4 combination.

We can also organise desert events and parties with traditional folkloric music, Moroccan feast and even a ‘fun casino’.

For all our Desert Tours we offer a range of wild camping (basic), Standard bivouac camp (comfortable and clean) and Luxury tented bicouac camps in both major dunes systems at Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga.
