Exciting Tent Stay In Sahara Desert

It was Christmas of 2017 when we spent two nights at Sahara Desert Luxury Camp and made memories of a lifetime. You can book your own tent in Sahara Desert Luxury Camp from any hotel website or like us it could be inclusive to your Eco Desert Morocco package Tour.  


The desert luxury camp was surrounded by rolling golden red sands dunes of Erg Chebbi with an excellent view of early morning sunrise and sunset.

Getting There (how to get there)

Getting to this desert camp from Merzouga the nearest town in Sahara was adventurous. Camel ride about 2 hours will take you there, that includes climbing to the tip of a hill relatively higher sand dune for a better view of the sunset in the Sahara desert. Alternatively you can get there by a 4×4 from Merzouga town.

Camel Ride in the desert
We took camel ride from Merzouga to the desert camp, on our way watched sunset from the top of a sand dune.


I believe there were 12 luxury tents in the camp, and our tent was excellent, spacious with a modern toilet, wash area, and a shower. It was winter in Erg Chebbi area of the Sahara desert, so it was a challenge to stay in the tent in the desert. Especially it gets very windy at dusk and freezing at night. Tents were equipped with modern furniture along with multiple comforters and blankets as there was no heating inside the tent. The electricity was generated from solar power, so that was not a problem at all so was the hot water. The tents were well insulated to keep you warm inside.

Hotel Staff

The staff were accommodating and will provide you all the services you may need with a friendly attitude. The food was excellent, I have attached few pictures for reference. There is no better place to watch the stars at night than from the desert and not only that we enjoyed hours of outdoor activities in the desert at night.

As excellent, I have attached few pictures for reference. There is no better place to watch the stars at night than from the desert and not only that we enjoyed hours of outdoor activities in the desert at night.

What I liked

Can you believe how exciting it was for me to be able to discover the countless stars and milky ways from our desert tents that I have never seen before? It did definitely remind me of my all-time favorite song ‘A horse with no name’ by America.

I liked going to a local butcher shop and get some fresh meat (beef, goat/lamb, Camel meat), brought them to our tent, and so nice of the camp chef to marinate them with local spices and have them grilled with wood fire just for us (all you can eat style). Un-debatably best thing on earth, nothing could match the taste of the delicious grilled meat with few glasses of local red wine.
