Glamping in Morocco – Desert Luxury Camp: the location
Desert Luxury Camp is located in Morocco, deep in the silent dunes of Erg Chebbi with no other camps or no other tourists in proximity. The camp can only be reached by foot, camel, a 4WD, or helicopter. The nearest village is Merzouga, a small little village with only a few shops, a local mechanic and a gas station. Merzouga is known for its location near the Erg Chebbi dunes. Those sand dunes are a part of the Sahara and they are the highest and largest in the whole of Morocco.
Why Desert Luxury Camp in Morocco?
Sleeping in the middle of the Sahara desert was always high on our bucket list. As soon as we planned visiting Morocco, finding a true remote glamping experience was the first thing we did. We quickly noticed there were a lot of choices, from day trips from Marrakech, camel trekkings during sunset to camping overnights in the desert itself. After reading some reviews, we decided to book a two-night glamping experience at Desert Luxury Camp.
Glamping at Desert Luxury Camp is basically like camping in tents but in a very luxurious way surrounded by the most stunning dunes. We slept under open skies full of stars, felt soft sand in between our toes, and watched dramatic sunsets every single evening. Every afternoon, the wonderful staff set up a cozy campfire and prepared some fresh mint tea for us while playing some traditional Berber music. For us, it was literally a dream coming true and a place we didn’t want to leave anymore!
The main camp and private camp: what are the differences?
Desert Luxury Camp has two different camps: the main camp and a private camp. The main camp has 10 king-size tents each with a private ensuite bathroom. The tents are set up with a tented restaurant that offers delicious Morrocan cuisine. (which was incredibly good!)
The private camp is completely private with 3 king-size tents each with a private ensuite bathroom. Perfect for honeymooners or small families that are looking for some privacy and unforgettable days in the desert.

Where to stay in Morocco after glamping in the Sahara
After our glamping in Morocco, we picked up our car in Merzouga and drove towards Ouarzazate. In Ouarzazate, we stayed 1 night in Riad Dar Charmaa and took some time to visit the Aït Benhaddou and the Tondra Valley before we head to Marrakech.
