Glamping in the Sahara Desert. What to expect during your stay.

Glamping under the stars in the Sahara Desert…

Have you ever been camping before? Well, this was my first time and I did it in style! Believe it or not, I really do enjoy nature and being outside when the conditions are right.

If you plan to visit the desert while in Morocco, it is very important to plan your trip during the right months. Morocco gets very cold in the Winter months, and even gets snow.The best times to visit are in the Spring and in the Fall.

We stayed at Desert Luxury Camp, Merzouga in the Royal Tents. “There are the largest in size 13x10m laden with handmade Moroccan rugs, solid wood king size bed, comfortable seating area, dressing area and full size mirror. Each tent is ensuite with private bathroom that features flush toilet, sink, shower and separate bathtub! In additional we have included small fridge and in winter times electrical heating along with electrical heating blanket is provided.”

The services at the camp was 5 star the whole way. We had gourmet meals prepared, and desert activities like camel rides and sand boarding were included.

The ride to the desert is about 10 hours from Tangier and Marrakesh. We hired a private driver to pick us up in Tangier and we made our way there, stopping overnight in Fez.

This stay can be considered a once in a lifetime opportunity, but I really do hop that I can return for another visit again.

Welcome to my Travel blog! Some of you may not know that this is not my first rodeo on the blogging scene. I wrote an entertainment and lifestyle blog for an NYC based PR Firm back in 2011 before my business took off and got a little busy. I have traveled abroad and domestically at my leisure and for work since 2005 and I have many stories to share. I was first introduced to international travel by my parents. They took me along with them on a missions trip to Germany and halfway through the trip, I hopped on a bus by myself and crossed the border into France. I spent the weekend exploring Paris on my own back when solo trips were not popular. I was 25 years old with a YOLO attitude and just could not be that close to the "City of Lights" without making a visit. That is when the travel bug hit! I was recently inspired to start blogging again after my trip to Cuba, and this time, create a blog for myself. When I first started traveling on a more consistent basis and internationally, I was 25 years old, single and working full time as contract travel Occupational Therapist. I met my husband of almost ten years along the way and he said that one of the things that attracted me to him was my love for travel. He got himself a passport and we have continued to see the world since then, kids and all!
