Our luxury desert camp in the Sahara’s dunes of Erg Chebbi is secluded, safe and unique.
A night in the Sahara is the main draw in visiting Morocco. So it has to be unique. Carefully prepared. Not just any desert camp, but one remote enough, yet safe, deep in the dunes so you feel you are in the Sahara, not just on the edge of it. After all, how likely are you to return soon ? And many of us have dreamt about this for years, if not our whole adult life. Our choice for the luxury camp in the dunes of Erg Chebbi is a good 40 minute drive into the dunes, a cluster of a dozen tents grouped together with one tent where dinner is served. Three other Royal tents are available for those that prefer their privacy, having their own butler and living it like a pacha. Mind you, the regular 30 square meter tents come with amenities you can’t even imagine: huge and comfortable beds, complemented by soft textiles, handcrafted furniture, bed side lamps and even heated matress in the cold season. There are a few plugs around if you wish to recharge your mobile/ laptop, although wifi reception is scarce. And why would you need that, anyway ? The ensuite bathrooms come with hot shower, water basin and flush toilets. The showers are fed by huge portable water tanks and you’ll appreciate having a long hot shower after a chilly night. The Moroccan menu is rated among the best on our guests’ private tour and followed by music around the fire as the sky is lit by millions of stars. Then, all there’s left to do is get inside the tent, zip the entrance and fall asleep, immersed in a silence so thick, you could cut a strip through it. Alcohol is not available on site but you are free to bring your own. Best visited from September to June.
