Camel Trekking in Morocco

For many visitors in a foreign country, dealing with tour operators gives them peace of mind, knowing that their accommodation, travel and activities while on vacation are taken care of. Tour operators not only provide guided tours, but are able to offer visitors a variety of attractions and fascinating activities to enjoy. One adventure that visitors are recommended to look in to is camel trekking across the deserts and dunes of Morocco. It is an experience that is unique and exciting, and will be a memorable time for tourists of all ages.

Camel trekking is not only a fun activity for tourists, but is a part of the tradition of the country as nomads have used camels as a form of transport for centuries. Following in their footsteps is an unforgettable experience, and visitors will have a few options to choose from. The most popular camel trekking adventure is an excursion into the Sahara Desert. Traveling by camel on the ridge of a dune in the late afternoon with nothing around you but sand, tranquility and open blue sky, must be experienced and cannot be explained. Finding the ideal camping area for the evening, and sitting on the dunes watching a breathtaking sunset is one of the most picturesque experiences and one that visitors will never forget. Clear skies filled with bright stars and the silence of the desert surrounding you is what travelers can anticipate on a camel trekking experience. There are different day treks that visitors can go on, ranging from one day adventures to eight days, with the Erg Chebbi dunes forming part of the Sahara Desert experience. These dunes are more accessible than the Erg Chigaga, so the journey depends completely on the visitors’ preferences.

Camel trekking along the coastline is also available, but usually takes between five to eight days to complete. Guides are able to share countless stories with visitors, and provide valuable information in regard to the camels, the history of camel trekking and knowledge about the desert that they have gained through experience. Whether it is a one day excursion or multi-day adventure, camel trekking is an activity in Morocco that should be explored by all visitors to the country.
