No trip to Morocco is complete without a trip to the Sahara Desert. Recently, we took a 3-day, 2-night fast track tour with Authentic Morocco and had such a great time. (View the video of our trip here.) Based on our trip, here’s a rough guide to help ensure you have everything you need to feel comfortable and at ease on the desert tour.
The sun reflects off the sand, the wind is harsh, and the stars are bright- the Sahara Desert is an experience like no other. With this packing list, you’ll have everything you need for the perfect experience.
For the luxury campsite, they do provide some of these items for you, but if you prefer a special brand, I would bring that with you. For the more remote desert trek, only pack what you absolutely need. You will be allow to store some of your bags in a hotel room while you spend the night in the desert, so bring a small bag to transfer your sleep clothes, extra clothes for the next day and some toiletries.
Bring a small supply of your favorite everyday items:
Shampoo & conditioner
Toothbrush & toothpaste
Toilet paper/ Kleenex tissues
Small towel for after the camel ride
Extra pair of socks
Baggy pants or yoga pants for the camel ride
Long sleeve shirt and sleep pants as PJs
Upset Stomach reliever
Mattresses and blankets are supplied by the tour operators, so no need to bring your own tent or sleeping bag. If you want to bring your own sheet or sleeping bag liner, you can, just make sure you aren’t bringing too much stuff as everything has to be carried in on camel back.
