We often receive interest from our travelers about luxury desert camps, the facilities available, and how different these are from the standard camps.
Luxury or deluxe desert camps can be described as 5-star living in the middle of the desert. Think luxury at the highest level – a 5-star hotel room within a very spacious tent with private en-suite bathroom, wall-to-wall rugs, a comfortable bed, armchairs, and quality linen. Electricity is provided in the tent via solar power. The tents surround a cozy, relaxation area where you can enjoy a ‘Berber whiskey’, a scrumptious dinner of Moroccan specialties under a blanket of stars, and as entertainment, the beating of drums and singing to the tune of traditional Berber music. In the next morning, breakfast is served before you return to the hotel on your camels to continue your journey to the next destination.
Standard camps have a similar set-up and are also comfortable. It offers all the basic facilities you need for an overnight stay in the desert. Only 2 exceptions – shared toilets (no shower facilities) are located close to the desert camp, and there is no electricity available at the camp. A truly authentic experience just like the Berber nomads! In the next morning, you will return to the hotel from where your camel trek began. Time for a shower, change of clothes and then enjoy a buffet breakfast served at the hotel before departing for the day.
