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. You will be picked up by our SUV directly in your riad or hotel and drive the direct way over the Tizi N’Tichka Pass in the south. The ride is distributed with enough breaks throughout the day and in the late afternoon they reach their Bivouac in M’hamid. There you can expect a traditional Moroccan dinner.
At 8 o’clock the small caravan breaks in the direction of Sidi Naji. Every day about 15-20 km by caravan are mastered. You can always alternate between walking or riding the dromedary. The path leads past some small oases and stony sections. In a shady place, you will then take a lunch break. Rested and strengthened, we continue to the dunes of Sidi Naji, where her camel guide has set up the first camp for her. Then there is the evening tea, a Berber dinner by the campfire and the first night under the stars of the desert can begin.
After breakfast, the dromedaries are packed and we start towards Erg Ezahar. During the day you will cross a rocky plain (Hamada) to the big sand dunes. Lunch is served in the shade of a tamarisk and the bivouac in the evening is set up at the foot of the dunes. They can fix their camp and enjoy the sunset until dinner is ready.
In the morning, the small caravan breaks open after breakfast and you continue your trek with the dromedaries, their personal porters. At half-time of the day is lunch again with fresh tea and salads. In the late afternoon you will reach the dunes of Bougarn. There, the camp is built and after dinner you can spend another night in the vastness and silence of the Sahara.
In the usual rhythm, we continue towards Chigaga. Before reaching these magnificent and sprawling dunes, they cross Oued Laatache, the wadi of thirst. At noon they will reach the Oasissacrée, the sacred oasis. In the afternoon they finally arrive in a solid bivouac, at the foot of the great dunes of Chigaga. Before the night, you can climb the dunes and experience the sunset from the summit. A very special moment. Here you can enjoy a shower and in the evening at the campfire after dinner to enjoy the music of the nomads.
After breakfast they continue their way. He leads them through Hamadas and Regs. Lunch break in the shade of a tamarisk or acacia and after a little siesta, continue until you reach the dunes of Oum Lalaag in the evening. Here they set up camp again under the stars of the Sahara.
In the usual rhythm, it goes on this day again after breakfast. Lunch break at a cozy, inviting place and in the evening you reach the dunes of Khriat Gmal. Here they spend their last night with the caravan, under a hopelessly cloudless star-shaped tent.
The seventh stage takes them through the foothills of the Sahara again towards M’hamid. After a last lunch together they reach the starting point of the trekking tour with the dromedaries, the Méharée. Here farewell to the camel leaders and dromedaries. You will be picked up by 4×4 and drive to Zagoora and stay in a hotel in the Palmerie. After a good shower or dip in the pool, she expects a nice dinner.
