New Year’s Eve in the desert of Morocco


The desert is to be experienced not to talk about

A night that comes alive to the rhythms and chants of the drums, castanets and guitars played by nomads; Sahara traditional music. Inspired by the African spirit of dance combined with Arabic rhythm …

In the core of the Berber campsite we will have a big fire, where we gather to share food, laughter, celebration and friendship. This Sahara Services new Years Eve party is being constructed under an exceptional framework … focusing on discovery.

You will experience the undulating of the sand dunes and the varying habitat of the desert – from rocky flat areas, to the beautiful oasis, to the spectacular 300m Chegaga dunes – we continue our focus on the discovery of the desert and the tranquillity it offers.

To discover the absolute beauty of the landscapes, the particular spirit of a Moroccan New Years Eve party and the experience of Nomadic desert life, the emotions we share amongst this landscape… and the memories we will share, take with us and treasure.

We organizes New Year Tours that depart Marrakech, Agadir, Ouarzazate or directly from Mhamid on request. Cross the High Atlas to celebrate New Year Eve around a camp fire in the erg chigaga desert camp and dance under the stars to the rhythms of Touareg musicians. Wake early to watch the sunrise over the dunes. All of our New Year Desert tours include (optional) an Erg Chigaga camel trek.
