This private tour is suited to travellers who wish to combine their own planned visit to Morocco with an organised tour to celebrate either Christmas or New Year in the magical setting of the Sahara. It offers you a unique celebratory time at Erg Chigaga Desert Camp inclusive of camel trekking, departing from and returning to your accommodation Marrakech.
This is a Desert Inclusive Tour and can be customised should you wish to extend your stay. Our ‘Saharan Festivities’ invites you to travel with us to celebrate the season, bow to the great dunes, be in awe of their natural and imposing beauty, write your festive messages in the sand and wish upon a Saharan star.
You journey to the most remote and most authentic dune set of the Southern Saharan region, comprising some of the highest and widest dunes, within the accessible Moroccan Sahara. Prior to arriving at Erg Chigaga, we journey across the High Atlas Mountains visiting the incredible fortified Kasbahs and their communities, immense palm oases, rivers and valleys, natural and exotic landscapes and undulating Saharan dunes.
Celebrate the arrival of Christmas or New Year dancing to the beat of the Moroccan drum and Tuareg music in the heart of the encampment sharing food, laughter, celebration, and friendship. No fireworks are required to herald in the festive season in the Sahara, instead take in the light show of millions of stars, twinkling against the incredibly black Saharan sky and shooting stars lovelier than any firecrackers.
Atmospheric and unique accommodations, dishes of tagines, festive accompaniments and bearing witness to Christmas morning or the dawning of a New year from the summit of towering Saharan dune sets await you on this considered tour.
