Best Seller Trekking day excursion Marrakech Toubkal on 2024
The driver Ibrahim was a ton of fun as were our local guides, particularly Zaid at the camel Safari. Multiple stops on the way there gave us spectacular views of the Moroccan mountains, desert, and canyons. The Desert camping was very glamorous and the camel ride wasn't excessively long (long camel rides are rather uncomfortable, not the case here.) Live music at the camp with sinks and bathrooms but don't expect showers in the dune camp. You can take them in Merzouga if you need but you don't get sweaty or gross in the desert so I passed for a day.
Amazing price for an amazing experience. There are no words to describe the sky full of stars in the middle of the desert, or the multilingual guides we had all along the way!
There was lots packed into this three day adventure. Be prepared for long days of travel. Our tour guide and van driver, Ayoeb, was fantastic and checked in with each of us to make sure we were taken care of.
