Located about 32km outside the town of Rissani, Morocco, a truly unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits you in the Sahara Desert. Here you will stay overnight in a tent campground that has accommodations for even the most high-maintenance of travellers. This experience is definitely one for the bucket list! Gaze at the desert and enjoy the ever-changing colours of the sands and sky with Discovery Tours in Morocco.

Arrive at the Bivouac La Belle Etoile hotel where you will settle into a campground. Stand in awe of your surroundings which include shape-shifting sand dunes and stars in the night sky. The bivouac, or tent camp, is located in the Erg Chebbi, a huge expanse of sand dunes, in a town called Merzouga and offers the traveller a night of relaxation and comfort in the midst of the wilds.

Reach the camp after lunch and take some time to watch the dunes rise and fall around you while you enjoy the adventuresome spirit of explorers of old. You have the option to enjoy a short camel ride here that will take you to a magical experience. Enjoy an incredible sunset on the dunes that is accommodated by traditional music under a canopy of stars. Afterwards, enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner at the camp while acclimating to a wonderous night out in the middle of the desert. After dinner, you can choose to enjoy panoramic views of the sand dunes or perhaps sip Moroccan tea on the terrace. Retire to your tent rooms where every level of comfort will be satisfied.

Enjoy the comfort that camping rarely excites with accommodations that include layers of traditional Moroccan carpet, comfortable mattresses, complete bedding, a shower, restroom and a private tent. If adventure is in your heart, you will not want to miss out on this experience of sleeping out in the otherworldly land of the Sahara.
