Join us for a 5 day experience, Camel trekking Erg Chigaga. Camel trekking is not only a fun activity for tourists, but is a part of the tradition of the country. Nomads have used camels as a form of transport for centuries. Following in their footsteps is an unforgettable experience, and visitors will have a few options to choose from.
The most popular camel trekking adventure is an excursion into the Sahara Desert. Traveling by camel on the ridge of a dune in the late afternoon with nothing around you but sand, tranquility and open blue sky. These thigns must be experienced, not explained. First finding the ideal camping area for the evening. Then, sitting on the dunes watching a breathtaking sunset is one of the most picturesque experiences and one that visitors will never forget. Clear skies filled with bright stars and the silence of the desert surroundings is what awaits you on a camel trekking experience.
There are different day treks that visitors can go on. Ranging from one day adventures to eight days, the journey depends completely on the visitors preferences.

We will pick you up in your aireport or hotel and bring you to our bivouac in Erg l'Houdi, where we will have dinner and stay overnight.
The next morning, after breakfast, we pack the dromedaries and hid for Rass Enekel , where we have lunch. Refreshed and rested we move further to the holy shrine of Sidi Naji nomads. There we will put up our mobile bivouac for the night.
After an extraodenary quiet night the dromedaries bring us to Boussna, a secluded place, with beautiful tamarisks. In the shadows of the trees, we have a traditional lunch. After the lunch break we are picked up by our jeep and we drive to the massive sand dunes of Erg Ezahar, or Chegaga. There we are in the nomad camp to have dinner and spend the night.
Early morning, after breakfast, we drive by jeep through impressive stone desert landscapes, seemingly endless sand and oases by Mezouaria, back to our bivouac. After the lunch break we bring you to M'hamid where you get the chance to watsh the street life of this small town. Or you can take a nice walk to visit the old Kasbah. If you wish, we will accompany you. The evening we will spend with you in our bivouac at the bondfire with nice traditionell musik. This tour gives you really feeling of having been in the desert, and you will gain a deep insight into the lifestyle of the nomads.
The next morning after breakfast we bring you back to Marrakech where we will say goodbye as friends.
