M'Hamid el Ghizlane Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Just spent some time in this wild west end of the road village 40 miles from the algerian border. I was travelling alone, and found this the perfect destination for independent travellers, with a wide range of accommodation options, including, my favourite,  Iguidi Tours, the last agency on the left as you go down the 'main' road.  In their beautifull reconstructed pise camp two miles out into the desert you really get a feel of it and will be made so welcome with comfortable beds inside or in Berber tents,  simple but delicious fresh cooked tagines, saharan music, candle light, camels in the kitchen, and you can help or watch as the family fetch water and feed for the camels from the village with the mule and cart, as you chill out on the dunes watching the sun set and the stars rise.Treks arranged to your personal requirements - either to Chegaga, the biggest dunes in S Maroc, or, my preference, the smaller and less touristic dunes and oases which you can have completely to yourself. There are also a couple of fantastic free festivals coming up, where you will see top class but little known Berber and Saharan musicians in very laid back atmosphere.
