    The guy who took us from Fes to the desert was very kind and went beyond the expected, explaining some aspects of Moroccan culture that we had never heard of before. He was a skilled driver. At the desert camp, everyone was amazing, including the young ones who livened up the evenings. They all had a great connection with us Italians, and we had a blast singing and dancing with them. An unforgettable experience.

    Highly recommended. The camp, the food, and the people are fantastic. The tents have private bathrooms, but during the summer season, it gets hot inside, which can be uncomfortable for sleeping (perhaps because the camp is located in the farthest part of the dunes, where the desert begins). However, it’s still a fantastic and comprehensive experience with various activities (camel riding, watching the sunset in the desert, sandboarding before dinner, dancing and enjoying music, stargazing, and witnessing the sunrise in the desert before breakfast). You also have the option to go on a quad ride.
