Into the Desert

A travel blog entry by johnsjourneys

The journey from Dades Valley to the sand dunes near Merzouga takes about 6 hours, including a stop for lunch and an excursion through the palmery at Erfoud.

... Paddy, Kevin and Liz (who would be traveling with us) as well as James, Barbora, Camille, Callum, Laura, Nicole, Christine, Flick, and Rosemary. In the morning, we woke up early to visit Blue group before finally leaving Azrou. We were able to hang out with the monkeys for a little while and take photos with the merchants Ali, Abdelluh, Abdel Qadir and Ahmed to give to them as a keepsake. Before long, we (Paddy, Kevin, Liz, Val and I) were on the road to the ...

... on to cook, making us mint tea and generally getting the camp ready for the night. We had a delightful time chatting with Ahmed around the dinner table and later the camp fire. His English was excellent, one of the eight languages he could speak! I didnt have the best night in terms of comfort...it was cold and the bed and pillows were rock hard so have opted not to take up the bedouin lifestyle. it was a great experience anyway.

... was still pitch dark out and I tried to get some photos of John getting on his trusty steed but they didn’t turn out. The camels get up hind legs first so you are thrust forward before they rise up with their front legs. It was a little "unexpected." Many in our group rode the camels but there were a fair number of people who walked up the dunes. Khalid stayed with the walkers. Our guides are known as the Blue Men in this part of ...

... have been very exciting. We were shown to their tent where some old mattresses were pulled out for us to sit on. The mother was quick to get out some water and wipe down the very sandy table and bring out a bowl of dates for snacks. Like olives they are a Moroccon speciality and they have over 23 kinds across the country..these particular ones were delicious! The little boy was very shy towards us and was more focused on pulling out his small lego toy set to play ...

    A Camp in the Desert

    The Beduoin Campsite is a 90 minute camel ride from the main hotel
    For a camp it is clean and comfortable
    There is a toilet and a washbasin, but no water!
    Good dinner and breakfast
    Absolute quiet, and the stars are like spotlights in the clear sky
    Berber music and songs are the entertainment
    The best part is the ride to and from the camp
    The main hotel has showers, swimming pool, restaurant, etc.
