Lawrence of Arabia, James Bond (Spectre), the Gladiator and Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones) went on adventures in the desert of south Morocco. The Sahara is of incredible beauty and mystery.
I discovered the Sahara in Morocco in November 2015. It was an unexpected spiritual voyage. I admired the Atlas Mountains, the Draa Valley, the vastness of the desert, the spectacular colours of the landscape. And I enjoyed the silence and the mysticism of the Sahara.
I spent the night in an amazing luxury camp by Dar Azawad. The camp is located in the dunes of Chegaga, 60 kilometres from M’hamid, amidst the most beautiful dunes of southern Morocco.
The luxury camp features six tents with outstanding comfort. Each tent has a king-size bed, a seating area, a wardrobe, a coffee machine, a mobile toilet shower with hot and cold water.
We were welcomed by very friendly Berbers who invited us for tea and later served dinner in a big tent. The 4-course menu was very copious and delicious!
After dinner, drinks were served around the campfire to the sound of Berbers singing and playing music. I felt like Debra Winger and John Malkovich in “The Sheltering Sky” by Bernardo Bertolucci.
