On the following desert safari we spend the night between the sand dunes of the Moroccan Sahara and enjoy the fabulous starry sky. Via sleepy oases, the medieval village Telouet and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ait Ben Haddou we return to Marrakech, our traditional Riad. In the evening atmosphere we marvel at the hustle and bustle of the jugglers and enjoy our dinner on the world-famous Djemaa el Fna square.

Our accommodations

Local accommodations with charm

OUR HOSTS:

True to our values and with a view to fair tourism, our accommodations are either local guesthouses or small family-run hotels where hospitality is still a priority. In spite of the local accommodations of our trips, we naturally pay attention to comfort when making our choices.

THE FURNISHING OF THE ACCOMMODATIONS:

Those who are used to a European 3-Star-Standard will get along well with our accommodations. There are predominantly no star catagories with us, which results mostly already alone from the remoteness of the accommodations and the kind of the “management”, however we pay attention very much to the fact that you feel well with us. There is a bed, shower, heating and usually also air conditioning and a pool. Not to forget the delicious meals, which are mostly prepared from traditional dishes with ingredients from the neighborhood or your own garden. You are always welcome to stay with us.

THE DESERT CAMPS:

The desert camps are designed to be as comfortable as possible in the desert. The attached tents consist of a wooden or clay construction and heavy tent fabric. Carpets are laid out inside. Most tents are lockable and have enough space for equipment and backpacks. Since most tents have an electrical outlet, the smartphone or camera can also be charged. Of course there are also facilities for washing and toilets. Most camps even have hot showers, which is a real luxury in a desert. Many adventurers like to sleep outside because the starry sky of the Sahara is simply unforgettable and the peace and space of the desert offers a good basis for a restful sleep. Before going to bed, you often meet at the campfire, tell stories, make music or exchange ideas. Of course, you don’t have to do without good food in the desert either.

  1. Susanne

    Die Sahara war eine der beeindruckendsten Naturerfahrungen, die ich je hatte. Der Guide war super und ist total auf meine Bedürfnisse eingegangen. Die Tour wurde nach meinen Wünschen geplant und ich kann das nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Ich krieg immer noch Gänsehaut wenn ich daran denke. DANKE :) :) :)

  2. Marc

    Sahara ist offensichtlich doch viel mehr als 40 Grad im Schatten und Sand. Dank der super geplanten Reise konnte ich das am eigenen Leibe erfahren. Das perfekte Zusammenspiel zwischen Natur und Kultur hat mir einen wunderschönen Einblick in dieses einzigartige Land verschafft. Vielen Dank und gerne wieder!
