desert trip morocco

We invite you on a journey of a lifetime. Witness the power and beauty of nature through the birth of the day, at sunrise, blessing the day and the land with its majestic view of the truly magnificent landscapes as we walk and drive through the mountains, valleys, gorges to get the highest dunes in Morocco (Erg Chebbi, Merzouga).
As we travel through the desert, you will unburden yourself from the worries of time, awakening your senses in the endless miles of the Sahara.
Inhale the fresh air, sip and smell the fragrant teas of Morocco. As you experience the nomadic way of life, embrace the quiet sitting by the flickering fire as the day comes to a rest, look at the stars in the sky at night and listen to the nomads as they play their music, bringing their historic culture and the ancient desert to life, feel enriched as African adventures become a reality.
Come with us and together we will taste the exotic.
