Accommodation: Options to stay in either standard en suite rooms or suites
Meals: Good quality Moroccan dishes. We quote for half board but lunches or picnics are available at very reasonable prices.
Activities: Excursions to the dunes by camel or 4×4, with options of overnight stay in standard or luxury nomads' tents. One day trek with camels (walk or ride): departure around 9 a.m. to a small oasis where you will have lunch, return to the hotel after sunset in the sand dunes. For the more adventurous, camel treks of up to seven days' length may be arranged.
As well as trips to the sand dunes, we recommend you visit the Marmar marble works near Erfoud, where a superb black fossiliferous rock is polished and sold. Bird-watchers will enjoy this area, especially the lake Serji, when it has water (usually in the winter).
