6 Days to Erg Zahar Sahara Desert. The Desert Hike in Morocco is a walk in the big dunes of southern Morocco with a professional nomadic guide and camel drivers. A camel caravan carries the luggage. Fascination of desert immensities, unusual encounter with nomads, study and observation of animal and plant life, relaxation, silence and total forgetfulness of civilization and the modern world in absolute calm in the heart of the great desert of the Moroccan Sahara, at sunrise and unforgettable sunsets. During the hike you live according to the rhythm and the intensity of the sun, everyone advances at his pace accompanied by the camel drivers. Before each stage departure, they gather the camels, who have fed on desert shrubs during the night, collect the wood for the fire, prepare the tea, make the bread baked in the sand. You sleep under the stars, under tents. You will taste the Moroccan cuisine prepared by the camel drivers.
Regular breaks punctuate your walk to eat, drink, observe, contemplate … All this from mid-September to mid-May, when the moderate temperature makes the stay pleasant for a camel trek. We organize hikes from 2 registered participants, and on the date of your choice.
