One of my absolute biggest dreams was to stay in a camp in the middle of the Sahara and sleep under the bright stars of the desert. I still can’t believe this dream finally came true during my road trip through the incredible country of Morocco. I was able to spend two nights at Tiziri Camp – a luxury eco desert camp and the first of its kind. Located in Erg Chebbi and close to the Sahara, there’s only the six tents of the camp, you and endless dunes.
Before I start writing about my magical time in the desert, I want to give you some more information about Tiziri Camp itself.
The Story of Morocco’s First Luxury Eco Desert Camp
Tiziri Camp is not like many other camps in Morocco. Even though their main focus is to enable people an unforgettable stay, they aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible. One of their most important goals is to support sustainable and responsible tourism.
The owner of the camp told us that he was born in the dunes to a nomadic family. Because of his special connection to that place, he decided to follow his dream and built Morocco’s first luxury eco desert camp. The name “Tiziri” means moonlight in his language and thus the silver moon of the logo.
