Probably the best time of the year to visit Morocco is in the Spring- March, April, and May. The temperature at this time is usually very pleasant, and nowhere near the scorching heat of the summer. During the winter months it can be nice during the day, but you might expect some rain (or even snow!), and it gets much colder in the evening.
This depends on where you are in Morocco! In the very modern, city areas, there is less of a need to worry about what you are wearing. However, to be respectful of the culture, it is probably appropriate to dress more modestly- for men and women, this means having the shoulders and knees covered. This is especially important in smaller, more local communities outside of the bigger cities.
During the spring and summer months it will be hot during the day and at night- long, loose layers that will cover you and protect you from the sun, >and something to cover your head are important. In the winter it gets colder at night, so some warmer layers might be necessary to keep warm when camping. If you are camel trekking, shorts are never a good idea- chaffing is never pleasant!
If you are interested in spending a night in the Sahara Desert in Morocco but are put off by the long drive times, it is possible to get a flight from Marrakech or Casablanca to an Errachidia Airport that is only a 2 hour drive from the breath-taking desert camps around Merzouga. There are also some beautiful riads and places to stay in the nearby village of Amelkis.

According to information provided by the UK-based Born Free Foundation, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence that riding a camel will hurt it. Camels are known as the ‘ships of the desert’, and are used to living and working in extreme conditions. Camels are used to travelling up to 25 miles (40km) a day, can carry up to 1,300 pounds (590kg), and can survive for up to 10 days without water.

No more than two people can ride a camel at any one time. For health and safety reasons, many companies will specify that only two children or one adult should be sitting on a camel when camel trekking.

Most camel treks in the Moroccan Sahara Desert last between an hour and an hour and a half. Typically, a group will leave from a hotel on the edge of the desert and will trek through the dunes being led by guides and camel handlers until arriving at the campsite. It is possible to ride camels for shorter periods at many other locations in the country.

Yes, children can go camel trekking in the Sahara too! Children from about 10 years old upwards may feel confident enough to ride a camel alone, and this is fine. However, younger children or older children who would like to may also ride a camel with a parent for support. Most companies will allow an adult and a child to ride a camel together.

If you are thinking to visit the Sahara Desert in Morocco, the Southeastern Morocco is the most accessible area of the Sahara. The Draa Valley – a green valley of palm groves, authentic Kasbahs (fortified houses) and Berber villages – was the traditional starting point of 50-day trans-Saharan camel caravans to Timbuktu. Today, camel trekking to the Erg Chebbi dunes at Merzouga is the best option with many travelers referring to their visit as the most recommended.

Yes, it is possible to ride a camel with only one hump. The dromedary (one-humped) camel allows a rider to sit in front of, on top of, or behind the hump; the Bactrian (two-humped) camel is saddled between humps.

Camels have quite a long life expectancy, and can live for between 40 and 50 years. One of the reasons for this is their hardiness, and another is the fact that the camel has no natural predators in the wild.

Camels are known for their rather ‘pungent aroma’! The reason camels smell bad is because they pee on their legs – this is a technique they use to help cool themselves down in the heat of the Sahara Desert.
