In the deep south of Morocco in the region of M’hamid the Sahara Desert is a beguiling wilderness of palm-filled oases, vast sand dunes, ancient lake-beds, camel caravans and men in blue. Off-the-beaten-track and accessible only by camel or 4x4 it is here that the stylish Sahara Safari Camp is located. Only available on a private rental basis, guests are assured of true solitude in their own exclusive luxury camp in the Moroccan Sahara.
From Marrakech the Sahara Safari Camp can be reached in a day by four-wheel drive on a long (but scenically diverse) drive through the High Atlas to Ouarzazate and along the palm-filled plantations and fields of the Draa Valley to Zagora on the fringe of the Sahara. If flying into Ouarzazate, the camp can be reached in half a day (about 5 hrs).
- 8 spacious nomad-style "walk-in" tents (4 with double beds (three can be split into twins if required, 3 with twin beds and one family tent). Each tent has:
* An inner cotton lining
* Groundsheet covered with locally-made carpets
* Armchair seats with cushions
* A table
* Hanging rails
- Duvets with Egyptian cotton covers and sheets offer warmth and comfort on chilly Saharan nights under an African sky full of shooting stars and distant moons
- Camel leather wash-stands filled with hot water on request
- Four tents have ensuite facilities with hot showers and bio loos. Four tents have private but separate facilities.
- A solar panel harnesses energy from the sun
- Hot water and power for re-charging batteries
- Solar-powered lanterns and candles are used in tandem to create atmospheric evenings in camp
- A camp fire is de-rigueur.
