What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

I had never done anything like this before and it was my first time traveling alone. I was a little nervous and unsure what to expect. Well where do I begin?? Laughing till my sides hurt, great company, the beautiful ever changing scenery, sleeping under the stars, tasting a little bit of Morocco's heart off the tourist track, camel riding through the desert, eating fresh dates in the middle of a dry river bed or lunch in a locals home. I could go on and on but I think the best thing would be to just recommend you experience it for yourself. It was a great combination between enjoying the culture and busy times as well as time just being. I am defiantly going to plan another adventure with Explore.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

How to describe a trip where there are no highlights? I’m reminded of King Lear when he says, “Nothing will come of nothing” and how wrong he was. The point is, with this trip the most spectacular parts were vast landscapes filled with….nothing. No buildings, no trees, no people. Simply nothing, unless you count an arid and sometimes completely flat vista stretching as far as the eye can see and further still. And how different that is to the existence that travellers come from and return to. As such, it’s fascinating to the point of being seductive and proves how people can become obsessed with the desert. I certainly have, travelling on several more trips, with Explore and others, where the highlight is....nothing. I can’t wait till the next one.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Camping out in the dunes and the absolute silence. I really felt like I had got away from it all.  Lovely.  Great group of people, lovely food and fantastic experience.

This was an unforgettable trip. It began with being flown into southern Morocco and meeting the excellent tour guide and first night in a decent hotel. Then the next day out in the Toyota Land Cruisers after a useful briefing from tour guide heading south through beautiful Moroccan scenery passing typical rural buildings and people. The first night camp was in remote oasis dunes among palms and watching the sunset and having a delicious meal served by our cook - vegetables and meat superbly cooked! Next day was 4 X 4 off-road through the desert proper. The heat wasn't too bad, just enough to know you're in the Sahara. The off-road was just fantastic, with expert driving through amazing desert country. The tour guide gave us good info on the people, the environment and the way of life in the area. A short camel-ride was fun too and cost only about £10. The third night was in chegaga dunes - and this was amazing place. We stayed in Berber tents and took photos of the immense dunes and watched the sunset. Next day was more off-road with photo stops and refreshment stops too. The last night was back at the hotel and then back to a wet and dreary UK. The whole trip was a highlight from start to finish! If you like off the beaten track trips where you see the real people and not just the tourist view, then this is a trip for you. It's not arduous, nor is it just for young people. Our trip was eight people aged from 20 to 70, and we were all like-minded and eager to learn. It's also good to know that the money we spent on the trip was helping the local economy directly and not just fed back to some anonymous company. TIPS: make sure you've got a warm sleeping bag as it does get cold at night in Spring. Bring your camera and get some of the best photos you'll ever take.
