Hiking in the Sahara: an adventure and a journey of healing
Trekking in the Sahara desert is an excursion that combines adventure, healing and well-being.
The Morocco camel trek is first and foremost a sporting activity that allows you to refocus on yourself, to meditate, to do a digital detox and to get back to basics. You enjoy the magnificent landscapes of the desert, the calm, the silence and the sun.
The Morocco desert trek combines hiking and camel rides.
In the evening, with the Sahrawi nomads, you set up the wild camp for the night. The camp, fixed at the foot of the dunes, is made up of a few tents. You enjoy the campfire while waiting for the dinner prepared by the nomads. Then, you listen to the songs of the Saharawis and their music under a starry sky.
