In the deep south of Morocco in the Draa Valley region of Zagora and Tagounite the Sahara Desert is a beguiling wilderness of palm-filled oases, vast sand dunes, fortified mud-built villages, ancient lake-beds, camel caravans, star-filled dark skies and men in blue.
Just a one day drive from Marrakech or Agadir and accessible only by 4×4, camel or on foot it is here that the stylish Sahara Safari Camp is located.
Quality assured as a member of the mid-market Moroccan Retreats group of authentic riads and tented camps, this Moroccan Sahara retreat offers travellers the chance to experience the Sahara sleeping in comfort and style.
A pioneering Moroccan responsible tourism project the Sahara Safari Camp is unique in its concept, style and location. Working in close partnership with the local tribal community the camp brings social and economic benefits to the region whilst minimising any environmental impact on the stunning wilderness in which it is located.
Moroccan holiday packages which include Sahara Safari Camp, multi-centre Morocco holidays and adventure tours can be arranged through our tour operator partner Specialist Morocco.
We also own and operate Riad Africa, an authentic riad guest house in the very heart of Marrakech medina with 10 rooms and suites, a large courtyard pool and roof garden.
Also consider Maison Africa, a luxurious riad with just 3 suites, a courtyard pool and panoramic roof terrace. This can be booked by the room or on a private rental basis for families, friends and groups of up to 10 people.
For truly breathtaking accommodation in the High Atlas Mountains take a look at our High Atlas Mountain Retreat – Dar Tassa. With 9 rooms and suites Dar Tassa offers authentic Berber guesthouse accommodation in Toubkal National Park in a hidden valley of the Atlas, only 1 hour 20 minutes from Marrakech and a 1 day drive from Sahara Safari Camp via Agdz, Tazenakht and the Tizi n’Test. Combining Sahara Safari Camp with Dar Tassa creates a wonderful two-centre holiday of desert and mountains!
