Erg Chi­gaga Desert Camp

Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

In the Sa­hara close to the high­est dunes in Morocco, Erg Chi­gaga com­prises nine lux­ury sleep­ing tents, all with en-suite bath­rooms and pow­ered by so­lar en­ergy. They are set around a cen­tral Ber­ber com­mu­nal room, which is fur­nished with tra­di­tional mat­tresses, car­pets and pouffes. There are also open-sided tents with sun lounges, so­fas, chairs and ham­mocks. The spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion tents fea­ture el­e­gant bed­rooms and sit­ting rooms with wall-to-wall kil­ims. Lo­cal Ber­bers lead walk­ing and camel ex­cur­sions into the desert, in­clud­ing overnight treks and op­tions to stay in two smaller camps about one hour by foot from the main camp. Din­ner is an ex­trav­a­gant af­fair of tra­di­tional dishes served by can­dle­light. Days and nights some­how feel dream­ily longer here—and that’s ex­actly the point. DESERTCAMPMOROCCO.COM
