Private Marrakech Desert Tours: The south of Morocco borders a body of sand that lures travelers near and far. For hundreds of years, humans have avoided the desert. After all, who would want to live in a hot, dry and inhospitable environment? In the past century, however, things have changed, and tourists have flocked to the Sahara Desert for the quintessential Moroccan experience. Before you go, though, it’s important to know that a Saharan journey requires professional guidance, preparation and chutzpah.
A journey to a hot, barren desert cannot be ventured alone; you need to enlist help. Find an experienced Marrakech Desert Tours 3 Days guide offering a weekend deal that includes transportation and accommodations. The ideal trip is an authentic trip. Try to find a guide with connections with a Tuareg tribe. The Tuareg tribes are Berber and inhabit the border of the Saharan Desert. They are known for their beautiful crafts, nomadic lifestyle and hospitality. Arrange a trip that gives you an opportunity to stay with a Tuareg tribe in tents, and make sure you have an opportunity to ride a camel.
Once you’ve arranged your trip, prepare for the unexpected. The trip to and from the Sahara will already be demanding; expect a long commute on winding roads. Once you arrive, different adventures await you. First, there’s the weather in the Sahara, which can be extreme-freezing at night, scorching during the day. Protect yourself and your wellbeing-wear a hat during the day and arm yourself with layers. Wear longer pants for the camel ride-you’ll be surprised by how rigorous a camel ride truly is. Camel trips are not for the faint of heart. Hydrate and bring bug repellant for the entire journey. I also recommend bringing a hookah along for night-time entertainment. A night in the desert is one of complete silence-uninterrupted by city lights and the sounds of cars. As such, having a good conversation piece around which people can congregate is a good thing.
During the entire trip, you’ll need to be prepared mentally. A trip to the Sahara Desert is an extremely valuable experience for the mind and gives you ample opportunity for self reflection. Walking alone in the sea of sand allows one to ponder about life and meaning. Walking through the desert gives one the strange sensation of being alone in the world, and that feeling can be terrifying as well as liberating. In order to maximize self reflection, I recommend waking up early to watch the sunrise. I assure you that groggily rolling out of your sleeping bed at dawn is worth the magnificent pictures you will capture.
Marrakech Desert Tours go to the Sahara for the experience, the adventure and the introspective opportunity. If you seek luxury, this trip is not for you. However, if you seek rugged experiences and unforgettable adventures, gear up and start planning. The acquired perspective after a vision of endless sand dunes is one that is worth the journey.
