Fes Overnight Sahara Camping Reviews

A perfect overnight

“We took the 2 days short camel tour. This could not have been a more perfect overnight trip! Amine, our driver from Fez to Merzouga, was punctual and very helpful. Nothing was too much to ask and he even taught me some Moroccan and Arabic. The desert was the perfect cocktail: Arabic camels, Berber music, bonfire, local food, a beautiful camp setting, sunsets, and lots of laughter. It was educational and exhilarating. I would not hesitate to do it again and try out the other trips they offer :).”

Best guide ever

“We made the Fes overnight desert trip to Merzouga with MUSTAPHA. By far the best driver-tour guide I have ever had. My friends and I had the best time with him. Mustafa drove very safely and he showed us everything on the road from Fes to the desert and back. The camp in the desert was great and the people working there were very kind including Yasim. I totally recommend this company and Mostapha for the tours!”
