“The essence of life is unpredictable. The greatest joys are experienced at the moment they are the least expected. These golden moments leave . . . deep longings in the heart . . . ”
“Wind, Sand and Stars” Antoine de Saint – Exupéry
Desert Majesty, run by a Saharan nomad and an English woman, is a highly recommended and much praised tourism agency in Ouarzazate, south Morocco. We design unforgettable Morocco desert tours to show you the incredible majesty of the Erg Chebbi and Erg Chagaga dunes, and of the mountains, gorges and valleys, Berber and nomadic life in oasis, Kasbah, village and desert.
Choose from our trips of varying lengths and destinations to discover this magnificent south full of peace, charm, simplicity and starlit nights. The desert is another dimension, a world apart from what we know and expect. In the expanse of the dunes there are no distractions from appreciating man’s greatest treasure – his own soul. Nothing exists but the undulating sand, the expansive sky, the moon, the stars and silence. Here, there is room for meditation; reflection on the essence of life and the magic within it.
We also organize longer tours including the historic Imperial cities and the Atlantic Ocean coast, where surfing is almost a must. Each of these trips includes an essential experience of the Saharan dunes with a camel trek and camping in private standard or luxury tents, and the city nights spent in traditional riads with tile work (zellij), elaborate plaster work and the impermeable and unique Marrakesh paint “tadelakht”.
Our drivers and guides are all local French/English/Spanish/Italian-speaking Berbers and nomads.
For the experience of the adventure of a life-time, book one of our existing itineraries or simply ask us to tailor-make yours to suit your individual wishes.
The power of the desert is omnipotent with the sudden rising of the winds, the shifting sands and the constant need to search for life giving water. The desert’s secret touch is about learning our own humility and coming away from this sacred place with each memory and experience etched into our minds, providing us with priceless treasures.
All this majesty is part of the many treasures of Morocco: the sunset or sunrise with the dawning of a new day, in the heat of midday or the cool of evening, when the colours of the dunes shimmer and reflect inimitable hues or, trekking on a camel, sharing the rhythms of life of a Saharan nomad. With us from Desert Majesty – even if only for a few days or hours – you will savour the spirit of the desert and begin to understand why the world’s three great religions of the book stemmed from here. And all of this is for the single reason; that no value may be placed on the desert because man is exposed to the desert’s whims.
