Beautiful experience, kind and helpful people. When we arrived we were able to take a dip in the pool and also the next day including a very good breakfast. The only flaw I can say is that sleeping in the desert in the tent was really difficult because it was too hot. Excursion to do to enjoy the desert and the camel ride! Beautiful

Arrived at the hotel you could wait at the hotel and also use the pool as stated when booking. That was great to cool off a bit, since it is very hot in Merzouga in August. The tour started around 6:30 p.m., we were driven by jeep to the camel camp, where the two guides and our dromedaries were already waiting for us. :) Then the tour started, a good 1.5 hours we went through and over spectacular dunes. It was a dream. The guides were available for questions and even took photos of us with our cell phones. very relaxed and cozy atmosphere with the two guys. arrived at the camp we were served tea and water. Then there was a delicious dinner. Afterwards we made music together, super relaxed mood, great atmosphere. A dream. After that you could decide whether you wanted to sleep in the tent or outside, the beds were set up outside especially for our group. Sleeping under the stars, it was fantastic.

It was a great experience and we can only recommend it to everyone to have done it. The program itself, the people and the food were very, very good. What we found a pity that there was no possibility of a turban and nothing was told on the trip, neither about the Sahara, not about the dromedary farm nor about the history of the traveling Berbers. The program was unwound and finished.
