Sahara Desert Expedition Travel Information
Early in the morning, we’ll depart in a private bus to the port where we’ll take a ferry to Tangier. There, our local guide will be waiting for us in our private Moroccan bus. We’ll head to Rabat, the capital of Morocco, to have a typical moroccan lunch and visit it’s Medina. After that, we will continue on our way to Meknes, one of the four imperial cities of Morocco. Once we arrive, we’ll check in at the hotel and have dinner.
After having breakfast at the hotel in Meknes, we’ll continue on our route towards Merzouga, a small village close to the desert. We’ll make a stop on the way to visit the Cèdre Gouraud forest, where we’ll have the opportunity to spend some time surrounded by the entertaining Barbary macaques (also known as Monkeys of Gibraltar). They are wild but friendly and are always happy to receive a tasty peanut. After saying goodbye to our new monkey friends, we’ll stop to have lunch at a restaurant-hotel located in the Midelt province on the middle of the Atlas road. Once we are on a full belly we’ll continue to Merzouga. On arrival we’ll do the check in at the hotel or campsite. Afterwards we will enjoy a lovely dinner and rest by the mouth of the desert.
Right after our hearty breakfast we’ll start our exciting Jeep tour that will take us all around Merzouga, where we’ll visit some points of interest such as the nomad settlements. We will end the Jeep tour on the dunes of the Sahara desert. Once back at the hotel, we’ll have lunch and get ready for our camel ride across the desert and towards the campsite. This ride will take around 2 hours and includes a stop to enjoy an incredible panoramic sunset view on the dunes. After dinner in the campsite, we’ll enjoy an authentic Berbers show; prepare to immerse yourself in an authentic experience, as they play their drums around the bonfire and under a sky full of stars!!
Optional early wake up to watch a scenic sunrise over the dunes of the the Sahara desert. After breakfast, we’ll head back to the hotel with our camels, where we’ll have time to rest by the swimming pool or at the tea salon.
