Whether you are on one of our ECO Tours of Morocco, making your own way to Erg Chebbi or on tour with another company, this is the only Luxury ECO Camp in the area and the perfect place to stay from a responsible tourism perspective.
By booking through us, you will receive a specially discounted price, an exclusive meeting with the camp owner who will talk about the eco concept and inspiration behind this groundbreaking project and the chance to see bread being cooked the traditional desert way, in the sand.
We recommend staying for a minimum of 2 nights in order to have the time to relax and really enjoy this very special space.
It is a small and intimate camp with 6 guest tents each one sleeping from 1 to 4 people. There is also a restaurant tent with Moroccan seating corner in case the weather is not good enough to be outside in the dunes.
Each individually designed tent is named after an Amazigh God whose name is engraved in the wooden doors. Unlike all the other camps in the area, the fabric is not synthetic. All the furniture is locally made by hand, often reclaimed. The toiletries supplied in the en-suites are natural, the fabrics are natural and everything from the clipboards and pencils used for feedback forms to the hot-water bottles are environmentally friendly.
The camp sources its water from their own well, solar panels provide all the electricity and an ingenious waste water system inspired by a Swiss charity filters the water so it can be used to irrigate their own oasis.
Add to this the mixer taps, dual flush toilets and use of biodegradable cleaning products and the list goes on and on.
The inspirational yet humble owner/manager was born in the dunes to a nomadic family and this area of Morocco is his spiritual home. In 2018 he followed my dream to build his own camp in Erg Chebbi and to build it with an eco emphasis in order to minimise the environmental impact and maximise sustainable and responsible tourism and we are very happy to support him on his journey.
The camp is gaining quite a reputation for their menu and rightly so.
All meals are produced from locally grown, in season ingredients which are sourced from the market that morning. Their fabulous chef serves up a set menu with vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. It consists of four courses, changed daily and last time I was there this was my experience:
Cream of Cauliflower Soup – served with home-made bread.
Artichoke Salad – with avocado, tomato, honeyed cheese and asparagus vinaigrette.
Quinoa Patties – with an almond crust and onion & pomegranate sauce.
Chocolate pudding with home-made saffron ice-cream.
