The Erg Chigaga Luxury Camp is located in the middle of the desert outside of the imperial city of Marrakech. Experience the tranquility of the simmering vistas, intense colourful dunes by day and the magical clear skies and bright stars in the evening. This private nomadic camp boasts spacious tented accommodations accompanied by typically excellent Berber hospitality. Enjoy your special night under the stars at this beautiful Oasis in a premium tented camp. Experience a camel ride at sunset and sunrise from the top of the dunes. Your desert experience includes an authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars and breakfast in the morning.
The camp nestles amongst a series of small dunes and looks out, to the South, towards the high dunes. Nearby there are dunes that rise to 300m. This British owned camp is perhaps the finest in Morocco. The attention to detail is remarkable. No expense has been spared on the tents and fixtures and fittings. Soft duvets, cotton linen, fluffy towels, warm bathrobes & high quality soaps and shampoos are a small part of what is offered.
The camp is managed by the expert locally raised Berber, Bobo. Bobo speaks excellent English, French and Spanish and his knowledge of the desert and the nomads of the region brings you an insight into a way of life that is unique. His staff are very helpful and the service and food is first class. The camp is made up with five accommodation tents, a dining tent, a sitting room tent and a tent that has recliners. The carpeted walkways from the accommodation tents all lead to the central open fireplace. Here, in the evenings, the staff will entertain you with local songs and music. Bobo is an internationally recognised folk singer and drummer.
The Main Camp is a mix of traditional Berber design, coupled with modern comfort. It is surrounded by magnificent sand dunes and is located adjacent to the highest dunes in Morocco. There are nine tents for sleeping, all with en suite bathroom facilities. The tents are spacious (over 25 sq m) and luxurious. Each tent has a king-size bed (which can be made into 2 singles). There are also ‘wall-to-wall’ plush rugs, a full-length mirror, bedside tables, solar-powered lighting, an armchair and ottoman and space to hang your clothes.
There are two secluded Private Camps. They are tailor-made for those who want privacy and comfort. Each camp is located approximately one hour by foot from the main camp. The camps are nestled in the dunes. At each location there are just two en suite sleeping tents, lounge and hammocks. Each tent has a king-size bed (which can be made into 2 singles). There are ‘wall-to-wall’ plush rugs, a full-length mirror, bedside tables, solar-powered lighting, an armchair and space to hang your clothes.
Breakfast and dinner are typically served under the stars. Cold drinks including beer and wine are always made available for guests enjoyment. Sitting for meals is done in the typical Berber style on pouffes and mattresses both outside and under the cover of a tent.
The ideal desert location makes the Erg Chigaga Luxury Camp perfect for those seeking a sand filled adventure. Guests can enjoy a variety of activities including dune hiking, desert trekking and unbelievable camel riding.
