Amazing experience. Amazing people. Amazing scenery. Expect a long drive both days and be prepared to have fun with the people you are with. It was the best 48 hours I had during my time in Morocco. Brilliant entertainment at the campsite, beautiful sunset and rise. Everything was perfect.

A great highlight of our visit. We would do this again. If you can, bring binoculars to do star gazing at night at the camp. We learned drumming, some dancing, had some great food, and slept comfortably in a tent. In the morning, we had time to hike a bit before we headed back to the city. Quite a lovely excursion, with different sights, smells, and people to enjoy.

Amazing experience! Went by my self, a 20 year old girl, and felt completely safe the entire time. The cars rides were long, but were in good company with other travelers and the most amazing views through the mountains. The camp site was great with fabulous food and entertainment!

Great experience to contrast the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh with a trip into a Berber region of Morocco! It is a long minibus ride 8-9 hours to get to the Zagora desert, but our driver ensured there were stops along the way to split up the journey the stop at the UNESCO world heritage site was definitely the best. Going in a group with other travellers made it more fun and music for the roadtrip is recommended. When you get to the Berber camp you'll soon realise it was worth the ride the desert setting, accommodation beds and blankets in tents, atmosphere and entertainment.
Get in touch beforehand to confirm your pick-up point as you may not have mobile data when out and about Omar trip coordinator confirmed with me via whatsapp. You'll need extra cash to pay the UNESCO heritage sight guide 30 MAD, camel trip leader and then for lunch on each day 100 MAD each. Our driver was great on the journey, got us to the locations on time and even accommodated stopping people off at different return points.

We were a party of four - two parents and two daughters in their 20s. This has to have been the highlight of our trip to Morocco. It was a long journey over stunning mountain passes and a visit to Ait Ben Haddou, which was well worth seeing but we arrived in time to be on our camels and trekking over the sand when the sun set. One tip is not to try to sit on the camel seat as if you're riding a horse because you'll be sitting on the hump - ouch! Sit at the very back of the seat and you'll be comfortable and not worrying about whether you'll be able to walk the next day. I loved the camel ride to the camp and back.
After a very tasty meal, the evening entertainment was great fun, dancing round a camp fire and keeping warm. The beds in the tents were quite hard and we had pillows of varying sizes. Mine was the size of a biscuit but I wrapped my clothes in my jacket and put that under the pillow to give myself a bit of height. Despite this, I slept like a log waking at 6am for the walk up the hill to watch the sunrise. We didn't see the sunrise due to cloud cover, but it was well worth the climb to see the view.
Back down to the camp for a good Moroccan breakfast before setting off on our return camel trek to the minibus.
There are toilets and showers near the tents but if you want a shower, take a towel as there were three hung up for communal use as you would expect in the toilets. There is a plug in the tent so we took a twin adapter and two phone chargers, so were able to charge our phones.
The men who led the camels, chatted to us, kept us entertained and looked after us, were very pleasant and seemed to be multi-skilled.
Everything was extremely well organised from pick up in the morning to drop off in the evening.
We loved it!!

What a great experience! Staff are great from beginning to end. Please ensure that you dress appropriately for the time of year that you go as the tents aren't heated at night. Try to pack as light as possible as you have to bring everything with you on the camel. Highly recommend!

I had an amazing experience on this tour. All of the guides were amazing and so helpful. An individual from my group fell off of their camel while we were riding them through the desert because she wiggled too far back. The guides immediately ran to her attention and made sure she was okay.
