Although I was excited about pretty much everything on our Morocco agenda (which admittedly changed a little during the trip), spending a night in the Agafay desert was definitively among the things I looked forward to the most.
And the experience didn’t fail to impress, but before I continue, please forget all you know about camping, because this, my friends, is GLAMping! Which meant that even I, who probably couldn’t be less in touch with mother nature, loved every minute of our time surrounded by sand.
Dromdar sex at your service! At first, is was interesting but then I felt a bit like a perf for watching them. They were nice enough to ‘do it’ as the sun was setting, which did put a somewhat romantic spin to it ;)
Picture this: Huge, luxurious tents with ensuite and the most comfortable beds you can imagine (no sleeping on rugged ground here, people). Entertainment, food (that was prepared for you, not by you) and a bar. Yup, hear heard me, right smack on the middle of the camp site there was a bar! So, yeah, I’m thinking I might just get married here – because they do do weddings :)
We arrived in the afternoon and spent the rest of day and evening chilling: going for short walks around the camp, eating, drinking and just hanging out. I know, tough life. It was the perfect way to rewind after a couple of busy days in the city. And as the sun set on the beautiful landscape that is the desert and I was standing there in the cool calm air, with a glass of rose in my hand, I honestly thought I’d died and gone to dessert heaven.
And with that sappy, smoochy and over-the-top desert description, my Moroccan fairytale has sadly come to an end, a fairytale that was nothings short of great: The organisers (Sahara Experience, Visit Morocco and Norske Reiseblogger), all the awesome things we did and saw and last, but not least, the people I travelled with. I couldn’t have had a better time!
Thank you for checking in and for checking out Morocco! Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video I made.
