A dream come true
We have seen it in the movies, we have dreamed of it in our beds, but Desert Majesty made it all come to life. Riding out on a Camel to see the sunset over the Sahara is a once in a lifetime memory that everyone should experience. We only had a short trip planned to Morocco in October 2010 and we wanted to get a snapshot of the entire country the beautiful coast, the souks of Marrakech and of course the Sahara. After searching online we came across desert majesty who offered a 2 day, over -night trip to the Sahara. It was perfect.
The long drive from Marrakech (in a new comfortable and air conditioned Landcruiser with our guide and driver Saïd was broken up with spectacular photo stops and food breaks. Saïd explained everything we saw and answered our numerous questions. We were more than delighted with the turbans he
created on top of our heads!
His experienced driving skills got us to the Sahara camp before sunset, so we had the amazing opportunity to ride out on camels into the stark Sahara and watch the sun disappear behind the sand dunes. Later that night we had a lovely dinner, before we relaxed and watched the stars and the night sky. Our accommodation was a cosy bivouac which we enjoyed a lovely sleep in before we awoke at 6am to watch the sun rise over the dark Sahara.
On the drive back we explored Kasbahs and listened to Ali as explained Moroccan history and culture. We have a superb time and the desert part of our trip is something that will stay with us forever. Thanks Desert Majesty x
