Main Camp

The camp is a mix of traditional Berber design, coupled with simple luxury

The main camp has 12 en-suite tents. It is surrounded by magnificent sand dunes and is located adjacent to the highest dunes in Morocco.

In the centre of the camp is the Berber lounge. It's a place to relax and is filled with traditional mattresses and pouffes. Ice-cooled drinks, soft and alcoholic, are always available here. Meals are served outside under the stars, or under cover in a Berber tent.

There is also a separate open-sided tent with sun loungers, another with sofa and chairs, and another with hammocks.

The tents are spacious (over 25 sq m) and luxurious, but not ostentatious. Each tent has a king-size bed (which can be made into 2 singles). There are also ‘wall-to-wall’ plush rugs, a full-length mirror, bedside tables, solar-powered lighting, an armchair and ottoman and space to hang your clothes. Each item has been handmade in Morocco.

The bed is super comfortable. We have sourced high-quality individual sprung mattresses, percale cotton sheets, duck down duvets and offer you a choice of synthetic or duck down pillows.

Each bathroom has its own toilet, dressing room and wash area. High quality soap, shampoo, towels and other ‘goodies’ are provided.

Due to the chronic shortage of water in the desert, instead of a shower we provide two 20-litre silver pewter buckets, each with hot and cold water. The bucket wash uses only a fraction of water compared to a shower. It's not only good for the environment, it provides an authentic and different experience, which is what a trip to the desert is all about!

The cost of the Main Camp is 235 euro per person per night and includes all meals, drink and guided camel trips. Also included in the price are evening sundowners, sandboarding, picnic lunches in the dunes and evening entertainment. See the prices page for more detail.
