I just came back from Marrakesh, and did a camel trek in the Sahara! it was wonderful! About a 5 hour drive from Marrakesh down to Zagora , which is the " door to the Sahara " ....we then " boarded " our camels at sunset...and rode 2 hours into the Sahara!!! it was surreal...I kinda
felt we were in a movie...it was so peaceful..
Came to the tent site, where they had dinner waiting for my friend and I, ( I even have food issues and they accommodated me !! ) ..then we sat around the campfire..
the Berbers sang songs...as we sat and watched shooting stars!!! ( I know! this sounds too good to be true...)
Next morning...woke up in our tent..had breakfast..went back to our camels...and rode home to Zagoura...then a leisurely drive back to Marrakesh... stopping where ever we wanted to. Our guides were Jamal and Mohammad....they were wonderful! They work for Imlil Trek....( imliltrek.com and they are on Facebook ) . I can highly recommend them. We were two single women going on tour in a Muslim country....but, Jamal and Mohammad were great. I cannot say enough about them..they became our friends!!
Definitely a must do...
