Morocco is one of those magical places, where you can breathe the culture of the people in every corner.
We visited the city of Marrakech, now one of the most touristy cities in the country also thanks to social media: there are thousands of posts which picture Marrakech magnificent riads and glamping.

But now let’s talk about best glamping in Marrakech.
What is it?
A glamping is a campsite worthy of a luxury hotel, very glamorous, for lovers of comfort and attentive to nature and ecology.

1-GLAMPING IN MARRAKECH: TERRE DES ETOILES
If you want to experience the desert but don’t want to drive 8 hours to get to the Sahara, then, the Agafay Desert is perfect.
We stayed in the Agafay Desert, in this beautiful glampingin Marrakech, very organized and well fixed in the details.
The key word of this glamping, which has absolutely nothing missing, is ECOSUSTAINABILITY, as they say from the ground to the sink to the plate!
If you’re thinking about your last camping, and what a nightmare you’ve been through, well, don’t worry, really!!
The curtains are in Boho style, the white dominates over everything and makes the environment comfortable and welcoming.
It has two separate rooms, the bedroom with a mini living room and a bathroom in masonry.
Outside there is a small patio where you can relax and admire the stars at night (we assure you that there are really many).
If your concern is not to know what to do, don’t worry because there are so many activities to choose from and suitable for everyone, such as:
– Desert walks
– Lunch/Dinner in the desert
– Quad in the desert
– Excursion on camels
– Moroccan cooking lessons
And these are just few to choose from!
For us it was the first time in a glamping but we were pleasantly surprised, we didn’t think that in the middle of the desert there could be so many comforts.
Cost 157€/night with half board
2- GLAMPING IN THE SAHARA: MERZOUGA LUXURY DESERT CAMPS
If you want to walk barefoot in the Sahara desert, and live this experience to the fullest, then this glamping in the dunes is perfect.
Merzouga is 8 hours by car from Marrakech , but the long journey, trust me, will be worth it by the almost mystical landscape in front of you.
The keyword of this glamping is LUXURY, in fact they have two different fields, one with only 5 tents and one with 15.
The private luxury camp offers a sense of comfort and prestige.
The camp is designed for those who want to enjoy the silence and serenity that only in the desert you can find.
The curtains are in Moroccan style, and there’s every comfort from wifi to air conditioning that you will not miss anything.
At the center of the field there’s a common area with a bonfire in the centre surrounded by lots of pillows and carpets.
Here we had a very good Moroccan mint tea while looking at the stars. A great experience!
If you think you’ll get bored here, you’re wrong because there are many activities to choose from such as:
– An authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars
– A camel ride through the dunes at sunrise or sunset (both are magnificent)
– Have fun with the buggy
– Picinic in an oasis in the desert
– Yoga session in the dunes
These are just some of the things you can do.
We entered the Sahara desert from many states in different travels, but we never experience the desert starting from Morocco. One time we walked for so long barefoot on the crest of the dunes, while admiring the landscape change hour after hour.
It has been one of the best trip we did.
The things we saw will be in our memories for ever.
