The trip was exactly what we’ve hoped for. We knew that the bus ride would be long but the scenery is beautiful so it doesn’t get boring 🙂 we made a few stops along the way and had a great time! When we got to Zagora, we got on the camels to ride to our camp which was just beautiful! The tents were really comfy and the people were amazing. Really friendly and taught us a lot about the Berber culture. We really enjoyed the night in the desert 🙂
Going on this trip was one of the best decisions we made during our stay in Morocco! It’s quite a long drive to the desert camp, but the mountain scenes and regular stops make it definitely worth it. Only the fact that we were pushed to eat in certain restaurants and strongly encouraged to buy goods/souvenirs during the visits along the way was somewhat annoying to us. However, we had a good driver and the people in the desert camp were very welcoming. We enjoyed an excellent dinner and had a beautiful view at the sunrise from the dunes the next morning. Also the camel rides were an unforgettable experience.

Wonderful experience and the best part of our 1 week vacation in Morocco. The many hours of driving was definitely worth it because of the beautiful landscape driving through the Atlas Mountains and then the desert.
Highly recommended it!!
The trip was so great. Especially since we had the whole car to ourselves most of the way. Our driver Hisham Damou (Marrakesh travel services) was a very reliable driver and friendly to be around. He seemed know the area very well. The camel ride and the sleeping in the tent was amazing. One of the highlights was hearing about the berber culture from our guide at the desert. We would recommend this trip to any of our friends!
Our driver was available all the time, very kind guides and very interesting visits. The night in the desert to say the least magical!
