Welcome to my Sahara desert trip gallery. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to tick off so many things from my bucket list and now I’ve accomplished something I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a child – the Sahara desert!

I will be writing up a post regarding my trip very soon. But first, I wanted to give you a sneak peek and share my Sahara desert trip gallery with you all to get your juices running.

I did a tour!

Regular reader will know, I normally travel long-term, however my trip to Morocco (Don’t miss my post on the Marrakech Medina) was just a short holiday, and I don’t like doing organised tours. I prefer to travel independently however because of the time restrained I decided to do an organised tour for 3 days and 2 nights. – My tour was organised with after a recommendation from fellow travel blogger Lana from who do I do (Shes more a luxury travel blogger.)

The 3 day, 2 night tour was broken up with stops along the way on the first day,more stops and a sun set camel ride into the desert on the second day and sunrise camel ride out the next day before a long drive back to Marrakech.

This gallery is broken into two parts – the journey with the stops and the Sahara desert.

Atlas mountains – Ait benhaddou – Dades Gorge Valley – Todra Gorge

The first day was broken up by taking in the Atlas mountains, Ait benhaddou and an over night stay in the Dades Gorge valley. The next morning before arriving in the Sahara desert there was a quick little tour of Todra Gorge.

The main event: the Sahara Desert.

You know being a long term-traveler, experiencing and seeing all the things I have over the years, some have escaped my memory as they just weren’t that memorable. Some thing’s were over-hyped, too touristy, or just a let down in some-way.

However, you’ll be glad to know this was not the case with the Sahara desert. I can honestly say I have never felt so peaceful or relaxed in my life than I did venturing through the desert dunes. You may laugh but I think I even found my zen out there!

I am in no means a professional photographer so my pictures may not do the desert justice but I hope these pictures inspire you to make the trip and experience something truly breathtaking.
