Our exclusive 2023 luxury desert camp holidays are set amongst the foothills of the high dunes of Erg Chigaga, the most beautiful area of the Moroccan Sahara. This is more like ‘glamping’ than traditional camping and features hand-made authentic Moroccan tents with the option of king size beds or single beds, sleep up to 3 or 4 for families, with lavish duvets and pillows. The tents sit around a stylish lounge and restaurant tent and a camp fire with rugs for unforgettable evenings under the stars. Hammocks, sun loungers and outside nomadic tents and sofas create the perfect place to get away from it all.

Our Erg Chigaga camping packages are available to December 2023.

For total privacy we also offer the option of a luxury private camping holiday package.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Erg Chigaga?2022-08-22T17:10:54+00:00

Erg Chigaga is a large desert erg located in southeast Morocco, approximately 500km from Marrakech city and 310km from Ouarzazate. This particular ergs dunes are some of the tallest in the world, reaching up to 400m in height. Erg Chegaga was originally created by the winds of the Atlantic Ocean which then pushed the sand inland towards what is now the Sahara Desert. Over time, as the Sahara grew larger and absorbed more land, Erg Chegaga became trapped within its boundaries.

What on earth is an Erg Chigaga?2022-08-22T17:09:35+00:00

Erg Chigaga is a series of Sahara Desert sand dunes located in southeastern Morocco, near the town of M’Hamid El Ghizlane. The dunes covers an area of over 30 square miles and features some of the tallest dunes in the world, reaching heights of over 650 feet. Erg Chegaga is one of Morocco’s nine Ergs, which are large areas of wind-blown sand. The Ergs were formed over millions of years as the Sahara Desert expanded. Erg Chigaga is a popular spot for visitors to hike and climb, and offers breathtaking views of the desert landscape. The best time to visit Erg Chigaga is in the winter months, when the temperatures are cooler and the sand is less likely to be blown around by strong winds.

How big is Erg Chigaga?2022-08-22T17:10:17+00:00

Erg Chigaga is the largest erg in Morocco. It covers an area of 35 km by 15 km and is located in the southwestern part of the country. The erg formed from windblown sand and dust that accumulated over a period of time. The Sahara Desert is one of the driest places on Earth and receives very little rain each year. However, when it does rain, the rainfall can cause flooding and wind gusts can pick up sand and dust from the desert floor and create large dunes. These dunes can reach heights of hundreds of meters. Erg Chigaga is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Morocco due to its size and intricate patterns and many people come here to see the sunsets.
