It is hard to give this property a rating. It is so unique. On the one hand the people that work there are fantastic. You could give them an excellent based on this. On the other hand, there is only cold water, the showers have wood pallets to stand on with hand-held sprayers and the tents were warm. Now a...

I was part of a group of 9 women on a 12 day adventure through Morocco, guided by Hassan with the amazing Sahara Magic Tours. One of our stops was at Sahara Gardens where we spent the night in the tents and had one of the most unforgettable nights ever! It started when we walked over the sand dunes to...

Wouldn't recommend this place. The staff was annoing, so it was difficult to relax. Can't tell too much about the food as I'm not an amateur of local cuisine (except of Harira soup and juicy domestic fruit!). Liked morning stroll with camels across the dunes a lot, that was definitely worthwile. But didn't like the host as he was too...

I travelled to Sahara Garden with three other people as part of a tour organised by the Desert Majesty tourist agency. I thoroughly enjoyed the much too short stay at Sahara Garden bivouac. . The staff at Sahara Garden were very attentive, helpful and fun – thanks Brahim, Aziz and others. The accommodation consists of a large, sturdy tent, the...

This was a great experience that passed too quickly. I had a Berber tent to myself with a very comfortable bed and an electric light. There was a separate shower and toilet area. The people there were friendly and very much wanted everyone to have a great experience. The food was delicious. The entertainment was joyful and the desert was...

It is with enormous pleasure that I write this review. Sahara Garden has a beauty that is not easily described. Ideally located between the Ante Atlas Mountains and the seamless views of the Dune it fulfils every fantasy that you may have of a desert oasis! Couple this certain magic with the Gardens incredible warm friendly and at times hilariously...

We organised a 3-day tour with Sahara Garden in January 2014 and it was easily the best part of our trip in Morocco! There are countless operators offering essentially the same tour, we found Sahara Garden to offer the best price and their level of service was excellent. We were picked up from our Riad in Marrakech and started our...

The place itself is amazing, the drapes, the rugs strewn all over the camping grounds are nice. the tents are comfortable and i slept incredibly well. The campfire is charming, the staff who carry your luggage, cook, serve; sing songs about slavery and about the desert, are extremely knowledgable, helpful, kind, and speak a variety of languages.

Our stay was well beyond our expectations. The tent camp was fine. We enjoyed the experience of the steeping tents, even though it was very cold (in December). The camel trips into the desert and the experience of climbing the dunes was outstanding. We were traveling with young children (5 children from 7 to 13) and the staff was excellent...
