Overview:

It’s a journey unlike any other, with landscapes and views that the majority of people will only see in films! Merzouga Overnight Camel Trekking is a Sahara desert adventure that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.

Camels are used to travel long distances.

At this comfortable camp, you can ride camels while admiring a beautiful sunset, wake up to a beautiful sunrise, and participate in sandboarding activities while eating a delicious breakfast provided.

Itinerary for overnight camel trekking Merzouga

Day 1: Meet up - Camel ride - Arrival to the camp

Merzouga camel trekking, spending the night in the desert, and watching the sunset in the sand dunes is an absolutely unforgettable experience.

This overnight camel trekking in Merzouga begins in the late afternoon (16 – 17 p.m. depending on the season) from the Kasbah Hotel and ends at the Merzouga Desert Camp in the middle of the dunes, where you can experience the desert magic. It takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach the Desert camp, including a stop to relax and climb the dunes for spectacular sunset views, photograph, and enjoy Sandboarding.

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a traditional desert welcome of mint tea in the Berber Beduin tent where you’ll spend the night.

In the evening, you’ll dine on a delectable Moroccan feast. Then, relax around a campfire and drum circle in an atmosphere of entertainment and fun before retiring to a private tent of your choice beneath the shining stars. You’ll leave your main luggage in your car or at our guesthouse and bring only a backpack with you on the overnight journey.

Day 2: Sunrise - Breakfast - Camel ride

Unusual morning in the Sahara Desert and the Erg Chebbi; Morocco’s highest and most impressive sand dunes. In the early morning, a date with a breathtaking sunrise over the sand dunes is worth waking up for.

Following that, a hearty breakfast and a hot shower will be provided in the camp before returning to the Kasbah Hotel in the village via camels or a 4×4 vehicle.

Your Merzouga Overnight Camel Trek concludes here at our guesthouse with a wealth of memories, feelings, and perhaps a new perspective on life.

Camel Trekking: Your Adventure After leaving the dunes’ edge, you will be transported to Erg Chebbi dunes for an overnight stay, where you can watch the sunset and sunrise while participating in sandboarding activities in Merzouga sea sand if necessary.

The camp will be established at the foot of Erg Chebbi shortly before sunset, with a fire to keep everyone warm. If you wish, you may enjoy your dinner while telling stories and recounting adventures to the accompaniment of Berber music.

As you drift off to sleep in your tented accommodations in the Sahara Desert, you will be surrounded by Saharan stars. Immediately upon awakening, you will climb the Erg Chebbi dunes, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the sun rising over the desert.

Reviews about overnight camel trekking in Merzouga:

Camel trekking

We booked a desert tour and it was fantastic! Hamid is an incredible guide. He responded to every question we posed and took hundreds of photographs of us. There are no hidden costs or gimmicks. If you're afraid (as we were prior to visiting the desert) that camels will be treated inhumanely, fear not. Animals are respected, work less than four hours per day, and appear to be content. I would strongly recommend him and this tour.

Overnight camel trekking in Merzouga

Excellent desert guide!!! Aziz was affable and hospitable without being overbearing. He taught us a lot about camels and had some fantastic dessert photo ideas! We now have wonderful memories and witnessed a magnificent sunset. After taking numerous photographs, Aziz gave us some space to enjoy the magnificent setting. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable desert experience! What can I say about the night in the camp! It was more than what we expected especially the berber party around the fire. I totally recommend the overnight camel trekking in Merzouga.

Lovely people

The overnight camel trekking tour in the Sahara Desert of Merzouga was incredible! The affable camel man allowed me to have an unforgettable experience with his trusty camels and took numerous wonderful photographs and videos. He is an incredibly caring person who frequently checked to see if I was too tired and taught me some interesting facts about camels and his Amazigh heritage in fluent English. Not only was I awestruck by the magnificent scenery and people-friendly camels, but also by his gracious hospitality and exceptional photographic/videography skills. I'm confident that Touring In Morocco will provide you with such a priceless experience that will mean so much to you throughout your life
