A great experience !! Huge meals great hospitalility. The night in the desert was amazing !!! The tagine in the desert was to die for. Waking up to dunes that went on forever is something I will not forget. I wasn't expecting a flushing toilet a comfortable bed and Berber music in the desert ... I have photos that are wow
My time with Brahim and his family was more than I could have asked for. Their home is situated in a small village on the edge of the beautiful desert. Brahim was so hospitable and made the most delicious food. He arranged for me a two night camel ride into the desert, which I highly recommend. The home is charming and very clean. It is a very authentic Berber experience and a must if you are wanting the best Moroccan desert experience possible.
Dar El Khamlia is the most peacefull and natural village I have ever seen and Brahim´ s family the cherry on the cream when you look for friendship far out at the edge of the desert. Lucky the ones who gets the opportunity to join the journey thrue this amazing sanddunes with all its living nature and the one billion stars above. I love it Guided by Addi and Achmed made this adventure sooo very special for me. Thank you so much,guys. I´m really gratefull that I had the chance to do it. Hope to see you again.

We had a good communication with Michaela and she pointed out even some nice spots along the road from Fès to Merzouga. Brahim who runs the place and caters one is a very friendly local who never hesitates to help you out. We also enjoyed a camel tour in the desert with an overnight stay, including a great diner and sunset as well as sunrise - great experience. The camels were owned by the neighbors' family and Aziz would lead us on the tour was a great and funny guide! I definitely recommend the stay at this authentic, less touristy place!
Simply perfect. All extant positive reviews are absolutely right. Very enjoyable hosts who really care about their visitors. Our daughter enjoyed it big time. Highly recommended!
Brahim accepted my late request, since I decided at the last moment to go and try how the desert is… Wonderful experience. And not only for the desert itself, but also because Brahim is a nice host, he made me feel comfortable and i felt truly welcome. Thank you Brahim! hope to meet you again, inshallah :)
