Silver price level

Mango Opinion

While it takes close to a full day to get here, the long dusty drive is so worth it! Taking a camel ride at sunset to your desert camp, spending a night under the stars in the desert amongst the dunes of the Sahara is an otherworldly experience.

Exploring the deserts of Morocco with a desert tented camp has to be one of the most rewarding wilderness experiences available. Experience the raw untouched wilderness of the deserts and immerse yourself into this extraordinary environment. The desert holds an endlessly romantic appeal, with white tents at the foot of gently climbing dunes that roll up from the flat plain, up and up over square black rocks wedged into the sand. Your camps has 15 beautifully appointed tents, designed with the romance of a bygone era of exploration. They have a hot shower, private bathroom, comfortable beds, and a fantastic staff to attend to your needs.

Walk up the highest dune, its perfect ridge like whipped cream, folding down to a terrace from where you watch the sun go down - the temperature dropping perceptibly as it does so. As the sun dips below the horizon you drop off the crest of the dune and down the seemingly vertical face towards camp. A traditional Berber dinner is served.

There simply isn't a better way to access and experience the remote wilderness areas of Morocco's extensive deserts. While you travel by day with your private guide and vehicle, the camps are carried by a dedicated team who move ahead of you with a 4x4 setting up camp in time for your arrival and moving with you as you explore deeper into the wild. Nights are spent in splendid isolation under a firmament bright with stars
