When we travel, we love to hunt for magical and unique places to stay that are much more than just a place to sleep. Places that will make you say “WOW!” the moment you walk in, that make you feel home and leaves an impression for the rest of our lives. And Desert Luxury Camp in Morocco is definitely such a place. There are simply not enough words to describe the incredible experience we had during our glamping nights in the Sahara Desert and if we could we would have stayed here forever. So if you are planning a trip to Morocco and looking for a true remote glamping experience, be sure to visit Desert Luxury Camp.
Read here our personal experience, everything you need to know and other useful tips when you consider visiting Desert Luxury Camp yourself.
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 whole Morocco.
Why Desert Luxury Camp?
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 on top of our bucket list. 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 as far as you can see. We slept under open skies full of stars, felt soft sand in between our toes in all different shades of gold 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.
The glamping adventure: what’s included
We booked a two-night glamping adventure at Desert Luxury Camp which included two nights in the main camp, a personal pick-up from Merzouga village (where we parked our rented car) by 4x4WD, breakfast, lunch and a traditional 3-course dinner. Also, all activities like sandboarding, camel rides, guided walking tours, and 4x4WD dune bashing tour were included.
As we loved our stay at Desert Luxury Camp so much, we created a little movie to show you more about this magical place.
