  • where to go to 3 nights camel safari off the beaten track

    by schildkroete Online Now Nov 5, 2010 at 3:45 PM

    hi, we want to do a 2-3 night / 3-4 day max trip by camel over new years eve! not counting the travel from / to marrakesch.
    important is: the fewer other camel safaris, 4wd, other western zivilisation around, the better. we are looking for The Nature Experience!
    we planned to go to erg lehoudi starting from zagora, but now read there might be a "rubbish in the dunes problem". is iriki oasis an option? any other ideas? experiences with tour operators? thank you very much. your desert tortoise.

  • ouerzazate-zagora-merzouga

    by susannasommariva Online Now Mar 16, 2010 at 8:16 AM

    I've got 10 days to visit Ouerzazate,(that I already know) Zagora, Merzouga and possibly Erfud and back

    What the best way to move around? Rent a car or there are some kind of public transport.?
    I want to "feel" the desert, possibly have 1 or 2 nights sleeping there: what do you recommend? (I do not love too much touristic packages.... but if there is no other way...)
    Does somebody know Ouerzazate airport:?? I've found a cheap flight from Casablanca, arriving at midnight....I wonder if it is OK
    Do you recommend some hotel (medium price) and some guide??

    Thanks in advance
    Susanna

  • coming trip to Mhamid and beyond

    by Normanmartin Online Now Mar 27, 2008 at 9:57 AM

    We have 2 to 3 days with a rented normal car to visit "the desert" for the first time, around April 9-12. Please can someone advise us:
    -a possible schedule with where to stay and what to see
    -I read it will be necessary to find a 4 x4 to see the dunes (muy wife is not too keen on camels)
    We are not high livers. We just want to soak up the beauty and the peace and silence for a couple of days on our first trip to the South.
    Thank you so much to anyone who can help.
    We are a British couple living in Madrid in late 60's early 70,s but pretty active and love walking

    My friend and I are trying to plan a trip to zagora to take a camel trek. However, money is limited and we only can stay one night, and trek for two days.
    Any tips on finding the best deal would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!
