CAMEL TREK AND 2 NIGHT IN BIVOUAC
Welcome to Camel Trekking in Morocco
A small donation of what you pay goes to poor famillies and people with disabilities. Morocco Sahara desert is definitely an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. It is a journey well worth the effort and you will have fond memories to last you forever. Imagine yourself on top a camel, trekking through the Sahara desert. There is nothing around you and all you can hear are the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand. The sky is vast and clear in the day and filled with millions of bright stars at night. It is a very peaceful experience, one raley known to most of the Western World.The dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga is 30 miles (50km) south east of Erfoud and has the highest and most spectacular sand dunes in Morocco. These golden dunes dramatically 50m from the desert floor. They run in a line almost perfectly north/south to the village of Merzouga and beyond, and mark the western fringe of the Sahara Desert, dividing Morocco from Algeria.

As the stars come out you can often hear the rhythmic beat of tribal drumming carried on the still night.Camel trekking may not be the most comfortable means of travelling for some, but it is undoubtedly a ‘must’ for every traveller as a way to experience the mode of transport of the Berber nomads of the Sahara.There are a number of possibilities of camel treks (méharrées), offered by Camel Trekking, starting from a day’s outing to a two-week expedition.
