WESTERN SAHARA, 11 days: Morocco
A Scheduled Trip to Morocco
11 days to discover one of the most unknown part of the Sahara, forbidden for decades to foreigners. An expedition that mixes real adventure with refined cultural discoveries.
A real “off the beaten path” expedition for passionate travellers and Sahara lovers. Desert crossing, genuine encounters with nomadic tribes as the mythical Reguibat, stone citadels, prehistoric rock art sites, unexpected navigation on emerald lagunes between ocean and dunes… A balanced mix of adventure and cultural discoveries as the Hispano-Mooresque architecture, one of the refrains of this Saharan expedition that starts and ends by the ocean.

About this Safari
The former Spanish Sahara colony has been the site of a long war since the second half of the seventies. This region also called the Western Sahara has been off-limits for decades to travelers. We are proud to be the “first ones” to bring intrepid travelers to the vast, rocky and sandy regions of Saguia El Hamra, Tiris Zemmour and Rio de Oro, now Saharan provinces of Morocco.
Accompanied by reliable guides and following a carefully planned itinerary, we explore it safely.
The itinerary is the result of a ten years research, both bibliographical and in the field; scouting, contacts with nomads, local tribes, encounters with former fighters, allow us to share with our travelers the most interesting spots of this large region dense of history, linking prehistoric times with contemporary era.
