Marrakech to Fes 3 days Morocco desert

I got to hang out with Mosstagha for a night at the desert camp in Merzouga. He took us out to a prime dune for stargazing and spoiled us with jokes, riddles and stories from the desert. He is very funny (we had us belly laughing) and is also very kind, offering to get a blanket and build a fire when it got cold. He is very keen to learn from his guests, and in turn to teach them about the desert and it’s people. Highly recommend! Morocco Safe Travel.

The 3 days Marrakech to Merzouga desert tour was a great experience and the highlight of our 4 week travel through Morocco, Spain. I really didn't know what to expect so every stop along the way was a revelation and we saw way more sights than I expected. We loved riding camels and being in the desert camp. It's been a lot of driving and next time I'd probably do a 5 day tour - it was that good. Our driver was great, the riad and desert camp were comfortable, the food was great and all the staff were very kind and polite. Highly recommended Morocco Safe Travel.

We travelled as family (with a 5 years old kid). It was a great trip to Morocco Safe Travel. I can totally recommend this. They picked up at the right time. The Mercedes Van was comfortable with AC and Wifi. They stopped at regular intervals and arranged guided tours. Desert safari and stay in Sahara (Merzouga) was really great. The tent didn't have, of course, no heater but had enough blankets. Camel ride was a good one time experience. The breakfast and dinner they provided was also very delicious, more than enough and enjoyable. The guide Mustafa and driver were very friendly and helpful. The return journey was little hectic as it's a long journey from Merzouga to Marrakech. But they stopped at regular intervals. Driving was also good. Overall highly recommended if you want to go to visit Desert from Marrakech.



Marrakech to Fes 3 days Morocco desert

It was amazing, beautiful views, unique moments. If you want real desert experience (Big sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, beautiful stars), you should go. Also thanks for our guide Mosstagha, he was very helpful and smiling every time. It takes 10 hours to go Sahara with stops and 8 hours go back by bus. Also our driver Hassan drives very well, safe and comfy. The only bad thing about tour is lunches. Every meal costs approx. 10-12 euros, and it was not delicious and unique for me, to be honest. But I wasn’t there for food so I strongly recommend this tour. Thanks for everything Morocco safe Travel.
