"Discover the beauty of Morocco"

Sahara Trip

A trip about quiet solitude, sunsets, palmeries and gentle daytime walks along the dunes… 

Quiet solitude, sunsets and gentle daytime walks along the dunes allow you to reconnect with your soul.


Walking in the Sahara will enrich your experiences with palmeries, sand dunes at sunset and endless views. There is an opportunity to take a short camel ride, see the wildlife and visit a dry lake.

Enjoy spending time in desolate campsites, making sand bread, as well as dancing and drumming with the locals. Depending on time we have the possibility to visit the historic Ait Benhaddou site as well.
