Tiziri Camp - Merzouga Sahara Desert
Luxury at its best.
We started with two nights stay at Tiziri and finished with four nights! It was a perfect oasis to enjoy some downtime and completely disconnect from life for a few days.
We arrived by camels to the camp, and it was the perfect way to start our stay, riding camels through the Sahara desert at sunset. The camels are well cared, and surprisingly the ride was very comfortable, and the views were incredible.
The colours of the desert were mesmerising. Upon arriving at Tiziri Camp your mind is blown, it is a luxury camp in the desert, only six tents so very intimate and the atmosphere was instant serenity.

Our tent was so beautiful, with the most comfortable bed, so cosy and warm. The tents have everything you need. You are spoilt with lovely electric blankets and a hot water bottle to keep you warm. Nice warm shower as it does get cold overnight, but once the sun rises, you enjoy terrific blue sky days and endless sunshine.
The camp is so peaceful during the day, you welcome the relaxation and take in the views, the dunes are so picturesque. You can even enjoy afternoon wine in the desert! Sunrises and sunsets go without saying, they are magical, and bonus the sun rises from 7.30 am in Morocco, so you even get to sleep in.
The food was fabulous, and you don't go hungry, breakfast is a beautiful spread of everything you can think of and three-course dinner. We even skipped lunch to try and squeeze dinner.
During the evenings after dinner, the staff all get together around a beautiful warm fire, and you enjoy local music and learning about Berber life, it was genuinely magical, including the stargazing.
The team at Tiziri were beautiful, and nothing was too much, they were always available to satisfy your requests and continually surprised you with tea and Moroccan treats throughout the day. We were even fortunate to experience the making (and eating) Berber pizza in a neighbouring camp, and it was a beautiful experience.
Tiziri was also set more in-depth in the desert and much more remote than other camps; you felt like the desert was all yours. We loved the camp so much we would book again in a heartbeat, all staff warmly welcomed you and it's great to see they are taking an eco-friendly approach and doing their best to keep the deserts in their pristine state.
Thank you so much for having us and don't think twice if you are considering Tiziri you won't be disappointed.
