You may have heard about tours and excursions in the desert within the heartland of Morocco. Camel riding, quad biking, camping out underneath the stars in a real Berber camp, visiting Argan oil production centres, seeing landscapes of outstanding natural beauty and strolling around the many souks and Kasbahs that Morocco has to offer.
But what you may not be aware of is: these desert tours can be arranged just for you and your close circle of friends or family. Private desert tours have the advantage of being there just for you and your private party.
Private tours depart from the city of Marrakech or Fes and the itinerary is designed to suit your needs. Time frames are there to be adjusted to match the requirements of the private party. If there is a budget, there is a private desert tour that can be arranged so that the cost does not exceed the desired amount.
Private desert tours usually take in the form of a group of friends with a view of having great fun – a loving couple or a family group with children. The tours reach out to the Morocco Sahara Desert and leave from Marrakech or Fes. Vehicles will collect all members of the private party from the hotel where you will all be staying and take you right back there at the end of the tour.
There are several different types of tours in which a private party group can travel on: these can be the 2 day desert tour from Marrakech to the desert sands and dunes of Zagora – one of the country’s most outstandingly beautiful and ancient cities.
There are trips that will take you on a journey to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi. These tours will take around 3 days and leave from Marrakech. But there is the longer and more adventurous tour – lasting four days – going from Marrakech to explore the real wonders of the Moroccan Sahara Desert. The journey will take you to see the Dades Valley, Ziz Valley and the spectacular sights of the Draa Valley.
Along some of these passes are deep gorges, winding valley and mountainside roads, hairpin bends with stunning views, waterfalls and a golden landscape that will leave you and your private party feeling as though you have gone back in time.
Private party bookings can even accommodate the more adventurous types who want to venture right off the beaten track. A private desert tour from Marrakech to Foum Zguid and Erg Chigaga and rarely seen by most tourists, but a real adventure nonetheless in the heart of the Moroccan Sahara Desert wilderness.
One of the more popular desert tours is to travel between the two big cities of Marrakech and Fes. On the tour you will have a chance to sleep under the desert stars, ride on the backs of a camel and enjoy an experience of a lifetime. All with friends and family within your private group.
