Sunrise in the Sahara Desert

My trip to Morocco has came to an end, it was surprisingly wonderful and I had some of the most unforgettable moments of my life.

My family and I took a trip from Marrakesh to Zagora, a place close to the Sahara desert. It was an extremely long drive, we saw many interesting things during our journey: the constant change of the landscape – from forest to rocky ragged mountains, to ancient villages in the valley to sandy grounds. I definitely felt the increasing temperature as we drove closer and closer to the desert.
We arrived at the desert at sunset after an hour and half camel ride to our ‘hotel‘ of the night, that being the camps provided by the local. I’ve never been a fan of camping nor have I ever camped in my life, admittedly I was pretty wary of the idea of spending one night in the desert. To my surprise, however, the camp site was well kept, four beds were provided in each with washing facilities plus a toilet that flushes (sometimes we take these things for granted). The evening ended with a rather exceptional meal (probably much better than what you would normally expect the locals to provide in the desert), the main dish was one of Moroccans’ favourite – Beef Tajine served with Moroccan bread! ( beef stew with potatoes/pepper/courgette/olives). Then… we danced the night away around the camp fire!
