Philanthropic Desert Tours

We have organised some exciting Moroccan tours for you to enjoy whilst visiting Camp Adounia.

We have a Fairtrade project with the Moroccan Berbers in the desert.  Our Moroccan Tour enables you to spend and a half day visit to their settlement.  During this cultural tour you can see how the nomads live and talk to them about their way of life.

These tours will give you the opportunity to understand more about the history and culture of the Sahara Desert and its tribes whilst visiting some magical ancient architecture from one of the oldest Caravan routes. These caravan tours are also wonderful to do with children.

Relax and sand board the dunes at Camp Adounia, take a half day Moroccan tour or even an overnight luxury nomadic camel caravan tour with our partners or just explore the incredible shapes and silence of the Sahara desert.

You are under no real time pressure on these cultural tours and our Nomad guides are happy for you to spend longer discovering or relaxing.
