overland tours of Morocco

Our expeditions / retreats and overland tours in Morocco are a marvelous way to discover the beauty and mystic of the Sahara desert. We travel in a slow pace with the rhythm of nature, almost in silence. You can walk holding the harness of your camel if you wish, or ride it when you feel tired. The camel caravan, conducted by a professional chief and his assistants transporting your tents and all your necessities for the journey, will progress four to five hours a day. This overland tour is a group tour. we can also customize it as an private FIT trip for you.
