What to pack for a desert tour from Marrakech?
No trip to Morocco is complete without a trip to the Sahara Desert.
The sun reflects off the sand, the wind is harsh, and the stars are bright- the Sahara Desert is an experience like no other. With this packing list, you’ll have everything you need for the perfect experience.
For the luxury campsite, they do provide some of these items for you, but if you prefer a special brand, I would bring that with you. For the more remote desert trek, only pack what you absolutely need. You will be allow to store some of your bags in a hotel room while you spend the night in the desert, so bring a small bag to transfer your sleep clothes, extra clothes for the next day and some toiletries.
Bring a small supply of your favorite everyday items:
- Shampoo & conditioner
- Toothbrush & toothpaste
- Wet Wipes
- Toilet paper/ Kleenex tissues
- Small towel for after the camel ride
- Lip balm
- Extra pair of socks
- Baggy pants or yoga pants for the camel ride
- Long sleeve shirt and sleep pants as PJs
- Headache medicine
- Upset Stomach reliever
Mattresses and blankets are supplied by the tour operators, so no need to bring your own tent or sleeping bag. If you want to bring your own sheet or sleeping bag liner, you can, just make sure you aren’t bringing too much stuff as everything has to be carried in on camel back.
