if you had to choose a destination that embody the magic of Morocco it would be the Sahara desert.Its images of vast unending sands, charming desert oases, and of course the sheltering sky. If visitors to Morocco really want to lose themselves and get away from it all, there is no more extreme way to do so than to set off across the great desert.
No doubt that the highlight of the desert is the camel ” Desert Ship” or original desert 4×4.Able to resist ten times longer without water than any other animal, and can thus cross the endless desert for many days without drinking.A camel trek in the Sahara desert will make you experience the camel caravans that used to travel on centuries-old routes seeking cool oases, springs of water and dealing in salt and spices…
Perhaps being in the middle of dunes under nomadic tent is the best way to appreciate the tranquility of the desert and take a moment to enjoy the lifestyle of the nomads of the desert.
