Erg Chebbi Luxury Camp

Tented camp in Merzouga

Surrounded by towering dunes a mere 10km from Merzouga, this luxury desert camp offers spacious, beautifully set safari tents (complete with carved wood furniture, high-quality mattresses and an en suite) for those who want to experience the desert in comfort. Sunset camel rides, mint tea by the fire, and an abundant meal is followed by a fireside concert (usually blusey gnaoua), plus stargazing galore.

The camp is operated by Marrakesh-based Sahara Experience (www.sahara-experience.com). Reserve ahead and they'll tell you the meeting point with onward transport provided in 4WDs (transfers available from Marrakesh).
