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.
