  • The trip by car from Marrakech takes two days, stopping at the throat of you fades but worth it! The desert is spectacular, you arrive at a hotel where they begin the dunes and ride on camel by one hour to reach the tents in the desert tents are very comfortable but ours had no hot water and the cold was very strong in January the cold makes it difficult for enjoy the night filled with stars but with a good wine you should cheer up, I take whiskey and binoculars to enjoy the spectacular sunset and as dawn!
