Romance in the desert

If you really want to whisk a loved one deep into the wilderness for Valentine’s Day then you should opt for Specialist Morocco’s 3-night break to a luxury tented desert camp in the middle of the Sahara.

Located in the south of Morocco, in the region of the southern Draa Valley and M’hamid, the camp consists of eight individual ‘walk in’ Caidal sleeping tents, eight private bathroom tents, plus a large salon tent in which to relax or eat meals, prepared by Berber chefs using ingredients sourced from desert villages.

Hot showers can be enjoyed in the privacy of the individual bathroom tents under Saharan bush-style showers. Environmentally friendly bio-loos are also housed in the private bathroom tents.

Commencing in Marrakech, you will be collected from your riad or hotel before being driven to the camp via Tizi n’Tichka. The following morning, you will explore the Sahara, oases and dunes by 4X4 before returning for a romantic candle-lit dinner in the dunes near the camp.

There is an optional camel trek or guided desert walk the following day before the final night and a return to Marrakech the next morning.

The break costs from £695 pp (2 sharing) and includes driver/guide and all transportation, 3 nights’ accommodation and 3 breakfasts, 4 lunches and 3 dinners.

Specialist Morocco can also organise flights ex UK and overnight stays in Marrakech on request.
