Types of Desert Camps
Standard Desert Camp / budget option
These camps are basic and simple. They typically consist of 8 to 10 private tents or chambers with mattresses on the floor and some basic bedding provided. They have a toilet and sometimes a shower set a few steps away from the tents and a basic meal will be cooked and served around a camp fire.
Verdict – cheap and cheerful
Tree Camp / mid-range option
This is a unique camp and a very special spot with 5 tents set under a huge desert tree. The tents have a mattresses on the floor and a rudimentary, separate bathroom area in each with toilet and basins. After the sun sets dramatically over the dunes the camp fires and lanterns will be lit and a traditional Moroccan feast will be served.
This is an amazing experience and after you’ve enjoyed the stars and the secrets, the laughter and the friendship – you can sleep in a comfortable tent or under the stars.
Verdict – unique and quirky
Luxury Eco Camp
This camp is luxurious, stylish and comfortable. Standards are exceptionally high and the restaurant serves a 4-course menu made of locally sourced, daily fresh ingredients, with great care and dedication. If the weather is fine, your dinner can be served at a table placed in the high dunes if you wish and local talented musicians will play traditional music around the huge fire pit.
Each handmade, Bedouin tent is uniquely decorated with Moroccan style and eco principles. All six tents contain huge beds with high quality linen and elegant private bathrooms. Sand-boarding is also available.
The outside areas are an absolute delight, adorned with rugs, lanterns and a choice of romantic seating areas and hand made furniture.
The position of this camp is perfect – set far from most other camps and with high dunes right next to the camp.
This is also the ONLY ECO CAMP in the area.
Verdict – indulgent and atmospheric
