Guided trip
Travel like a true desert Nomad, live the Tuareg lifestyle. If you have always wanted to roam the desert, then this tour is for you. Immerse yourself in nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of city and everyday life with this Sahara Desert tour. Enjoy the most magnificent desert landscape and see how it evolves dune after dune. This trip can continue with a minimum of 7 people and is fully guided by me and local experienced desert guides. This trip is perfect for photography lovers also (keep in mind that it is not possible to charge, so bring solar chargers with you or powerbanks as this is a remote experience. You will be able to charge in a desert camp the 4th day.) I am Maxime - Dutchie currently working in Saudi Arabia and Morocco, working as a travel designer & photographer specializing in the Middle East and North Africa. I am new on this platform, but I have traveled around the region and organized trips in Morocco before for clients and myself. I studied tourism & hospitality. I am super excited to host my first real JoinMyTrip tour and super excited to connect with like-minded people. If you want to get a glimpse of what I do and who I am you can find me over on IG withmaxime or www.withmaxime.com INCLUDING - breakfast, lunch, and dinner and beverages. - camping gear - transport from and to Marrakech - accommodation - experienced local desert guides who will take care of everything - This is a trek with camels (you yourself decide if you want to ride a camel or not, but in case of any emergencies we have a car on stand by at all times.) Keep in mind that this is a remote experience and that most nights we will set up our own desert camp, meaning there are no showers or bathrooms. We do bring enough water with us on this trip and make an improvised spot for bathing. You have to be okay with this! On the 4th night, we do sleep in a desert camp with showers and bathrooms.
