Our camp is located 15 minutes walk from village M'hamid. This is where the road ends, and the great sands begin. Traditional tajine near the fire, breakfast served in warm morning sunshine, camel rides, cous cous with my family, henna or cooking classes are just some of ideas for spending time with us. We offer accommodation in clay huts (B&B). You will be also welcome to join one of the desert trips run by our Caravan Shooting Star team.

The space

Our neighborhood is the great Sahara desert to the South, and lovely village M'hamid to the North. From our bungalows and tents stretches a beautiful view to the small dunes, and it's the perfect starting point for any further trips deeper in the Sahara.

Guest access

The area, including kitchen, is open to everyone.

The camp is exactly as described, if you are looking for an authentic desert experience, this camp is perfect. We did not have the chance to meet Mohammed but we spent a lot of time with his father Brahim, who showed us a lot of kindness. The excursions (overnight camel bivouac at the oasis and 4x4 tour to Chigaga) were very good and the prices unbeatable. Despite the summer heat, we enjoyed every minute of it. We do not have a single negative remark.

We stay at camp one night. But we choose option on a desert Erg Chigaga which is around two hours ride by jeep. There were bigger dunes like at the photos :) Mohamed was not there, but he arrange everything with his wife and family. We were with guide - Lahsan - very nice nomad. It was great trip, we really enjoy it.

I've spent a great time with Mohamed's family, living like a local. We get along so well even though we don't speak the same language. I spent my every minute with them and Mohamed's cousin, who always accompanied me when I went out. Despite that Mohamed wasn't there, he always sent messages to his sister to make sure I was good. I really felt like a part of the family and even cried when I left.. Those days were probably some of the best days in my life. How I wish I could stay there longer.

The location is the Best choice for living in the desert in several days without a car. M'hamid village is walkable from the camp. Although I haven't got the chance to meet Muhamed, but he arranged everything. His family took good care of me. They noticed I perfering tea without sugar. Every time I drunk tea with them, they gave me a cup first, then add sugar in the pot. They treat me like a family member. I love the family. Mohamed also arranged erg chigaga Excursion for me. It was a real special experience. Next time I would definitely come back with a longer holiday with them.

We really enjoyed staying at Mohameds Desert Camp. It is located a 15 min walk from M'Hamid and small dunes start right in front of your new home. Even though you are in the Sahara, the Camp has everything you need to feel comfortable (toilet, shower, etc). Mohamed picked us up at M'Hamid in the late evening and he and his family had dinner and tea at the fireplace prepared for us. He was there for us the whole stay, cooking dinner and tea and answering our questions about the Sahara and nomad life. I also recommend taking a trip with him. We spent the night in a tent surrounded by stunningly beautiful dunes, cooking Tajine on the open fire, watching the sunrise and just enjoy the bizarre landscape. All in all a memorable experience :)

A fabulous experience!! We planned 5 days in the desert, had to push our dates backwards because our friends couldn't go with us anymore and we had to change our schedule, due to that our lovely host Mohamed changed his flight too so that he could stay and wait for us... The time we arrive was already late evening, Mohamed picked us up and led us to our desert home, and even have food waiting for us! Great man! The camp is so much better than I thought is would be, nice and spacious, even has proper toilet and shower! What more can be asked for? The whole experience in the desert to me is always about soaking myself in the nature, having amazing chat by the fire under a sky full of stars, that's pure luxury itself. Eventually we had to ditch our trekking plan due to my partner's work and he wasn't fully ready for it, but we will definitely come back next year (or maybe end of this year) to do it! See you again Mohamed! All the very best my friend! x
