WINTER SEASON: 01 October to 15 April (CODE: 014 A)
Camel trekking in Morocco (camels carrying the camp, you are walking!) is a great way to sample how the locals do it and soak up the vast beauty of the desert as you sway through the sands. If you've never sampled a camel ride before, this is a must try experience!
4 days and 3 nights out in the wilderness of Tagounit and the Erg Sahal dunes.
- Day 1 - Depart by minibus (4.30 hrs drive) from Ouarzazate through the Draa valley through Zagora, Tamgroute and Tagounit where you pick up your camels and guide. Commence a 2 hour trek by camel in the palm groves of Zaouia Sidi Salah. Arrive at camp near the river Draa for the night where you will be served by your cook. You will sleep in 2 man 'igloo' style tents on proper matresses with sheets. There are wc facilities at the camp.
- Day 2 - Breakfast, then leave the palm groves by foot, crossing the river Draa heading south east towards Erg Sahal (4 hour walk with lunch en route). Arrive at camp in the dunes and watch the sunset. Dinner at the camp.
- Day 3 - Breakfast, then from Erg Sahal walk back to the river Draa and the palm groves (4.30 hrs walk with lunch en route) to near the village of Bounou where the camp will have been set up. Dinner at camp.
- Day 4 - Breakfast, then walk back to the M'hamid road (1 hour walk) where you will meet your minibus which will drive you back to Ouarzazate (or onwards to Marrakech).
