It’s a long journey from Marrakesch and back but it’s worth it. Our guide was a real nomad. The Camel ride into sunset was a great experience and the camp was in excellent condition. It was cold at night, so get dressed properly. The food in the camp was as well really good. We enjoyed this trip very much.
