MERZOUGA ADVENTURE AROUND DUNES TRIP BY 4X4:

If you love to discover the surroundings of Erg Chebbi and live the adventurous journey, then pick a 4×4 vehicle and start the engine! Some of you might stay in our camp without a personal vehicle, so we take this into account and we constantly hire particular vehicles for this purpose. Usually an excursion around sand dunes involves traveling for a couple of hours around Gigantic dunes Erg Chebbi to let you experience a challenge-like drive.

 

WE WILL TAKE YOU ONBOARD CLASSY VEHICLES LIKE TOYOTA “LAND CRUISER “OR “PRADO”, AND OFTEN “MITSUBISHI PAJERO” WITH CAPACITY OF 5 PASSENGERS EACH, AND ABLE TO DRIVE ON OFF-ROADS WITHOUT GETTING STUCK IN SAND.

 

The drive involves several stops for panorama-view photos above sand hills and in frequently visited sites like Serji Lake. If you are interested in a 4×4 journey, please let us know in advance to book the cars for you.

 


 

MERZOUGA ADVENTURE ENTERTAINMENT AND FIRE:

 

The night is deemed the most gorgeous moment in our camp. We realize how much romantic and magnificent nights might be under starry sky. Hence, we constantly try to add our touch to the moment with a set of entertaining performances. Our bivouac staff is super talented with music and art.

 

SO EACH NIGHT AFTER DINER, THE STAFF SETS FIRE AND SIT AROUND IT, THEN START PLAYING SOME LOCAL SONGS USING DRAMS, JUMBIES AND OTHER UNIQUE INSTRUMENTS. OCCASIONALLY, WE INVITE PROFESSIONAL BANDS TO PERFORM DURING SPECIAL EVENTS LIKE NEW YEAR’S EVE, BIRTHDAYS AND OTHER IMPORTANT OCCASIONS.

 

The bands represent the Berber musical style and local folkloric shows. So if you have a special event that you’d like to spend in our camp, kindly let us know and we will manage to prepare surprises.

 


 

VISITING KHAMLIA VILLAGE:

The village of Khamlia is situated 5 kms Southern Merzouga. It is a small complex of clay-and-straw built houses by the Erg Chebbi sand dunes. The uniqueness of this little village lies in the fact that all its inhabitants are black in color, viewed as decedents of African slaves who used to serve the ancient empires centuries ago, but they consider themselves Berber speaking Moroccans at the time.

 

YOU SHOULD VISIT KHAMLIA FOR ONE PARTICULAR REASON, WHICH IS TO ATTEND GNAOUA SHOWS, A PURE AFRICAN RHYTHMIC MUSIC AND DANCE PERFORMED BY NUMEROUS BANDS OF THE VILLAGE. OUT OF THE GNAOUA MUSIC, KHAMLIA VILLAGE HOLDS ANNUAL FESTIVAL CALLED “SDEKT” ACCORDING TO THE LOCAL TRADITIONS.

 

This occasion is a tribute to generosity and love by the black community, who invite together guests from the surrounding hamlets and being served with traditional meals amid Gnaoua shows. Gnaoua bands are available every day except for religious holidays. The musicians would appreciate donations to support their artistic activities for more years to come. You can contact us if you’d like to see what it looks like in Khamlia.
