From Ouarzazate: 6 Days Private Camel Trekking with Berber family

This camel trekking from/to Ouarzazate starts at a local families home in the desert of Zagora and combines the experience to live and eat with a typical berber family together with a 5 days camel trekking crossing flat desert plateaus, mountains and golden dunes. It is a perfect opportunity to learn more about the life of the Berber people in the desert of southern Morocco.

You will also love the sunrises and sunsets on the ridge of the dunes and the mint teas at the set up camping. Sleeping in your tent or under the stars, bake the bread with the camel drivers, read the map of the starry sky, make a campfire... and share this unique experience with us.
