Head for the Sahara

Sahara

When the weather warms up and the Moroccan border re-opens, it’s time to head for the wide open space and dramatic dunes of the Sahara desert

A day’s drive from Fez or Marrakech, you can ride a camel to your comfortable tent. You don’t need to rough it – clean sheets, hot showers and a delicious Moroccan meal are all part of the experience.

My family did this trip recently, and had a memorable time. While the kids loved the camels, my husband and I preferred hanging out at the camp and viewing the magnificent night sky.

 

                                                       The luxury desert camp where we stayed
                                                         Ismail was our kind and courteous host

Caméléon Bleu can arrange transport and a stay at a luxury desert camp when you stay at one of our properties in Fez or Marrakech.

Browse our selection of majestic riads and cosy, comfortable dars. Do you want to stay in the middle of an ancient medina, or in the quiet of the countryside? Both options are open.
