Top 5 Experiences on Sahara Desert Holidays

Camel Ride: When you picture the Sahara Desert, it’s likely the first thing you’ll envisage is an Arab riding a camel across vast golden sands. So, it’s only fitting that on Sahara Desert holidays, you experience this for yourself first hand. Camels are an important part of Moroccan culture as they were often used to carry all sorts of goods, such as salt, gold and tea on the Trans-Saharan trade route. On our Morocco desert tour of the Sahara, you can enjoy a 1.5-hour camel trek along the sandy dunes of this vast and beautiful desert which culminates in an otherworldly experience as you watch the sunset transform the land into a sea of fiery orange and red.

Visit Fez Medina: In stark contrast to the tranquility and remoteness of the Sahara Desert, Fez Medina is a frenetic labyrinth of alleyways and squares filled with aromatic food stalls, fountains and souks where local artisans sell wares such as leather, copper and brass. The medina of Fez is one of the largest in the world and is an integral part of Moroccan culture, dating back to the 9th century. Some of the most interesting sights to look out for include the huge brass entrance to the Bou Inania Madrasa, the Chouara Tannery, and the beautiful old Islamic school, built on the 1300s.

Experience a Traditional Hammam: Nestled into the High Atlas Mountains, Tigzha is one of only four traditional villages in the valley. Exodus has supported the village with various responsible tourism projects for over 10 years and a trip to Tigzha on our Sahara Desert holidays introduces you to the beating heart of Moroccan culture. While you’re here, you can enjoy an authentic experience at the local hammam where you’ll have the opportunity to mingle with the villagers and learn more about their fascinating way of life.

Stay in a Bedouin Camp: Life in the Sahara Desert, Morocco is a far cry from our usual daily lives and a journey into the sprawling sand dunes takes us away from civilisation as we know it. This is a unique and totally enthralling trips that needs to be experienced. After travelling by camel on a Morocco desert tour of the Sahara, you’ll spend the night at an authentic Bedouin camp. When it’s not too cold, sit outside and spend the evening gazing up at the vast, star-studded sky as you try to comprehend the magnificence of your surroundings.

Attend an Argan Oil Workshop: Morocco is the only country in the world where you’ll find argan trees and we guide you into the High Atlas Mountains to the women’s cooperative Argan Oil farm. The Berber women pick the nuts from the Argan trees and crack them open ready for selling at the market. As well as being able to buy an array of Argan Oil products, you’ll also get to see how the oil is made with a hands-on demonstration. On our Sahara Desert holidays, we want to bring you closer to the heart of each destination and this is a wonderful experience that gives you a much greater knowledge of the local people and their customs.

The itinerary for this was well designed and provided a comprehensive experience of Morocco, its various regions and people. I learned a lot. Our guide was great and we also had local guides when visiting different regions which provided for more in depth history lessons. The people of Morocco were kind and welcoming. I would highly recommend this trip.

From busy Marrakech through the Atlas Mountains to the Sahara desert, this trip covers three very distinct areas of Morocco, all well worth visiting! Marrakech old town – beautiful and plenty of opportunities to haggle for bargains and immerse yourself in local life. Ait Benhaddou was great, and the Berber camp – fantastic. Good facilities even in the desert, lovely home-cooked food (and fresh watermelon) and the opportunity to sleep under the stars on a warm night. Tijhza is a great experience, it’s an authentic Berber mountain village where you can get a sense of how Moroccans live. We had a lovely group and great guide and really bonded over the week.

Charli JM Marrakech & the Sahara

Like most Exodus trips this is fast paced and is an adventure rather than a holiday. We covered a lot of miles but it was worth it for the diversity of experiences and the chance to see so much of the wonderful country of Morocco.
