Then you will ride a camel after we pack our necessary baggage on camels and go to spend a night in equipped camp. Seriously, we know that you have three nights, so after a day of traveling, we will enjoy a little time in the camp and take our dinner, and go to sleep.

Second Desert Night and Camel Trek in the Sahara Desert of Morocco

In the early morning, we will wake up and climb the Dunes to see a panoramic view of the sunrise, then come back to take our delicious first breakfast in the Desert. And be ready to travel by camel to our second destination which is Tamarisk, it will take two hours of time. At this amazing spot, we are going to have lunch and have a fun time with the Nomad family where you will spend the second night.

Third Desert Night and Camel Trek in the Sahara Desert of Morocco

The next morning after our breakfast with Nomads, we will trek to one of the closer Oasis in the middle of the desert. On the road, we will stop to take pictures and live our trip with lunch too. And finally, it is your last night in the desert. But this time we will spend it with the Berber nomad family at the Oasis. During the dinner, we will have fun with drum music under heaven full of stars. Ultimately, in the morning we will travel to Merzouga or where we reserved a hotel, but before we will have a traditional and delicious breakfast.
