After visiting Bivouac sous les Etoiles two camps last year, we decided to return to spend a bit more time in the desert. Part of our trip involved a two night camel trek covering some of the route out to Chigaga. All I can say is it was wonderful. As a family of five (with kids of 15, 13 and... More

We booked the classical 48-hour tour from Mhamid: 1 day by camel in a bivouac and 1 day by 4WD to Chigaga. Hamza and the two camel guys were really helpful, always willing to share interesting stories about Berbere culture and cooking delicious meals! :) Would recommend 100%!

We had the 2-days tour with depart from Marrakesh "2 Jours : Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou - Zagora - Ouarzazate - Marrakech". The places visited were amazing and the tour was fun. The service was excellent, the food traditional and really tasty. Our first day stops were at the historical Ait Ben Haddou and Zagora for 2-hours camel ride.... More

And it is probably the most magical thing we have ever... More

Be prepared for going back to the basics in life. Great host and unforgettable experience. For us from the tropical countries it was very cold in Sahara in the month of December.. Some New Yorker guy went jogging in the freezing dawn, must be like home to him. Good food, basic but sufficient. Plenty of rocket salad otw to the... More

My partner and I made it down to M'Hamid after dodging floods on the main road. The operator is located on the left street at the roundabout/fork on the right. We arrived for our 1300 tour time, but they had us wait a few hours before we left. We had lunch in the restaurant next door and they came to... More

Friendly helpful, and did their best. Could have had a chattier guide but he still showed us the sights. The camp is well isolated, and just inside the dunes. They don't accept card payments and there is NO CASH MACHINE untill you get to a town that is 1h30 away....

If you are in Morocco, it is definitely something you must do. All the staff are so nice and always there to answer your questions. They love their job and that's what makes it beautiful. The desert is so nice and you have to do that once in your life !

We spent 5 wonderful days with their tour. It is the highlight of our trip in Morocco. Our driver Sala was nice enough to pull over every time I want to take a photo (which is like every couple of hundreds of meters). On the way we stopped over to a lot of places including the famous Ait Ben Haddou,... More
