Heading off on Morocco desert tours provides one of the best experiences around.
Perched at the top of Africa, Morocco encapsulates so much of the mighty continent and is a thrilling treasure trove of places, sights and sounds to delight the weariest of world travellers. Here, whether it’s in the colourful and raucous markets or out among the majestic dunes of the Sahara Desert, where there’s not a sound to be heard, you can find the kind of sublime travel experiences you’ve perhaps always dreamed of.
Morocco desert tours hold an extra-special place in many people’s hearts. Because once you stand among the silence and the immense, unfolding and undulating mountains of ancient, wind-blown sands, you will almost certainly reach a new level of appreciation and inner peace and say to yourself, as a shiver runs down your spine that makes you gasp: “This is astounding”.
We know this well from the many people from all over the world who come to this incredible country and go on our Morocco desert tours. It’s a breathtaking and life-altering experience and one you must embark on at least once in your life. It perfectly matches the current travel trend of people choosing a destination because of something particular they want to do — enjoy an experience — rather than opting for a more usual sun holiday or fleeting trip to a party island that might leave them less than satisfied.
A More Worldly Experience
Now, more people than ever want to see and feel the world in an entirely different way. And doing something off the beaten tourist path like going out into the Sahara Desert and seeing the spellbinding vistas for yourself is something that holiday dreams are made of. You get to witness the tranquillity of this vast ocean of sand and encounter the nomadic Berber people who move through it, as they have done through the centuries.
Spectacular sunrises and dreamy sunsets will dazzle as you dine out under stars so clear from an absence of light and other pollution and enjoy this disconnected, natural theatre made for you. It’s the ultimate way to tune out from all the many stresses of modern life and get in touch with yourself all over again.
Experiencing Morocco Desert Tours
What else can you do and see out in the extraordinary Sahara Desert? Everything and nothing, all at once. This enormous stretch of sand, which makes up the largest hot desert in the world, covers most of northern Africa and fringes the eastern part of Morocco. It provides a chance to be still for a while and have little or nothing around — an experience that’s almost impossible to have elsewhere on this overcrowded and built-up planet.
Taking a sturdy and air-conditioned 4×4 to your Sahara Desert location ensures you won’t have any problems with the sometimes challenging terrain. Then, it’s all about getting out and hiking up those dunes and all around — making sure, beforehand, that you’ve brought the right kind of clothing, footwear and gear. This is not a place to go walking about in flip-flops and shorts and a t-shirt; you need hiking boots and to cover yourself up against the searing sun and the sand, which can often whip up into a sandstorm.
And what better way to elevate your experience in the Sahara than to see it all from on high — from the back of a camel that will take you wherever you want to go and with the elegant style and grace these “ships of the desert” are renowned for? Then, at night, you can relax in the decadence of a luxury desert camp that will have all the amenities you need and drink it all in.
