The Details...

Enliven your senses and rejuvenate your soul with a once in a lifetime trip to the deserts of Morocco. Hidden amongst the mysterious sand dunes of the vast Sahara Desert, Le Petit Prince Bivouac is a real cultural experience. Sit around the crackling campfire and listen to the stories of the tribe, before trekking across the desert and watching the unforgettable sunrise. With an inspirational vision and a rich, ancestral heritage, you can immerse yourself in this nomadic existence.

Le Petit Prince Bivouac is set in Moroccos Mhamid region and lies at the gateway of the Sahara Desert and on the edge of the Draa Valley. Set up by local nomads as a sustainable venture, it is an authentic camp where you can make a difference for the future. Plant a tree in the oases and fight against desertification, before supporting the local community and their colourful traditions. With ancient craft workshops and interesting people, you can get to know the forgotten stories of this sun-scorched place.

The remote camp has 12 Moroccan-style tents encircling a central campfire and a communal hub. Furnished with brightly coloured carpets and comfortable mattresses, each distinctive tent is its own characterful hideout. Continental breakfast greets you in the morning, while evening meals are prepared on the roaring fire pit. A large dining tent provides respite from the heat, and is joined by shared bathroom facilities that are impressively clean.

During your stay, you can set out on a journey of discovery amongst the magic of the Sahara and its mystical secrets. Explore the Atlas Mountains or the local villages or the mirage of oases or the endless sand dunes. Mhamid village is just 7kms away, while Zagora and Tamegroutte can also be found close by. Take a trip to Marrakech or to Lake Eriki, before visiting Hamada du Draa or Kasbah village.

As the sun sets, youll see the bivouac transform into a cultural extravaganza with aromatic foods. Listen to the tribal music or to the legendary tales, or to the lyrical songs and the percussion rhythms. Join in with the native entertainment or escape to the solitude of the desert, where you can enjoy a romantic night beneath star-studded vistas. For the ultimate experience, visit during the Taragalte festival, where a three day event celebrates traditional cultures.
