Great place. We went in desert with camells and it was amazing. I have to say that we had an amazing guide called Ali! He is super funny, entertaining and nice person I have ever met. He cooked us an amazing delicious Tajine. We also had fun in desert, dance and sing! You can also watch the sky and stars....

After a stroll over the dunes at sunset, I arrived at my campsite. I stayed in the camel haired tents. The tents were spacious, my tent had 4 beds. The staff were great, made us feel very welcomed. We sat around the fire telling stories and singing songs. Laughter and happiness filled the air. The food was awesome. There is...

Sahara Garden offers boths: a stay in an authentical tent - like the nomads did, but I believe they did not have such comfortable beds;-) - and rooms in a Riad-like building. The rooms are nice and clean and in an authentically maroccan style. There is a swimmingpool and a large relaxing area where you can sit outside in the...

We have very mixed feelings about this hotel. We stayed for 2 nights during public/religious holidays (Eid- al Adha) and most staff were sent home to spend time with their families. We had no hot water, which is not a major issue in the South of Morocco, but it would have been nice to get to know about it beforehand....

While I was only planning to stay in the desert for 2 or 3 days, I enjoyed it so much at Sahara Garden that I stayed for nearly a week. Abdou picked me up as I got off the bus in Erfoud early in the morning, then we drove by 4x4 to the kasbah hotel. Beautiful rooms and premises with...

Amazing location, very helpful staff and the best camel ride into the desert I've ever been on! The food was pretty good considering how far out it is and there is a huge amount of things you can choose to do!

To talk to local people and receive an understanding of true Moroccan culture was priceless. The nomadic people of the desert our hospitable, professional, and will do anything to make your stay comfortable. It was something I have dreamed about for a long time and I don't know if I will ever fully digest what I just experienced. Arriving to...

We visited Sahara Garden as a family, with three children between 9 and 16 years old. We travelled through Morokko with a normal car and had an appointment with Brahim at the Afriquia gas station on the road between Rissani and Merzouga. Brahim guided us to his camping, where we parked our car and switched to Brahim’s 4x4. Brahim brought...

It is hard to give this property a rating. It is so unique. On the one hand the people that work there are fantastic. You could give them an excellent based on this. On the other hand, there is only cold water, the showers have wood pallets to stand on with hand-held sprayers and the tents were warm. Now a...
