We at Sahara Light – Travel company in Morocco, organise private tour departure from Marrakech to explore best of Sahara desert with local guides and drivers. After loading the dromedaries their little caravan from M’Hamid breaks into the Sahara. On small paths goes out of the village and you are on the edge of the desert. After about 3 hours walk you rest in the shade of a palm tree and have lunch there. A fortifying cold snack and a fortifying tea and after a little siesta continue your walk. In the evening you will reach the dunes of Sidi Naji, named after a holy man (Marabout). The camp is pitched, dinner is prepared and their first night begins under the sky of the desert.
To benefit from the cool of the morning means getting up early, having breakfast and loading the dromedaries. The caravan crosses a stony plateau (Hamada), and then, in the shadow of a tamarisk, the noonday rest. Now you come back to sandy areas and reach the dunes (Erg) of Ezahar, the whispering dunes. Dinner by the campfire and another night in the vastness and silence of the desert.
After breakfast, continue on your way. Of course, if they like, they can always ride a dromedary at any time. Around lunchtime they look for the shade of a tamarisk or acacia again and feed and rest there. In the evening you will come to the dunes of Bartam, where they camp one last time. Maybe you will discover a shooting star in the wide Sahara sky.
After breakfast, the next leg takes you to the dunes of El Bour. There again a relaxed siesta and in the afternoon you reach M’hamid. Now it’s time to say goodbye to the caravan and back in civilization. Sahara Light will be happy to organise desert tour from Marrakech. Contact us today.
