ABOUT US: OUR PEOPLE AND PHILOSOPHY

Chegaga Spirit is a local eco-tourism company in Southern Morocco committed to providing high-quality, ethical, and professional Sahara experiences for single travelers, couples, and groups. Our Morocco camel trekking tours directly benefit the families and community of our village, M'Hamid El Ghizlane. 

Our carefully picked, local team works together to bring to you the best Sahara desert experience possible. Each of our guides was born in the desert into a Saharawi nomadic family. After 10+ years of experience, they are ready to give you a safe, high-quality, and authentic Morocco desert adventure. 

For us, eco-tourism preserves our nomadic culture. This way of life, so important to our ancestors for generations, was lost when many nomads settled down due to climate change. Through our authentic Sahara tours, we can still teach others how nomads in the desert moved, survived––and thrived––in this unique and beautiful landscape. Our rich stories, unique techniques for everyday life, and tasty traditional meals, are all celebrated on our Morocco desert tours. 

Said Banan, Founder of Chegaga Spirit: 

I was born and raised in the Sahara in a nomadic family. When my family settled in my teenage years, I worked hard to learn English, and started to work hard as a camel guide with many local companies to support my family. After years of experience in tourism, working my way up in the business, I decided to make my own eco-tourism company that would benefit my community. I love every grain of sand in the desert, and I deeply enjoy sharing the beautiful landscape I grew up in with travellers from around the world.

SPECIAL OFFER: EASTER HOLIDAY IN THE DESERT

Spend your vacation in the peaceful bliss of the desert camel trekking, sand-boarding, and enjoying a personal desert tour to the Erg Chegaga Dunes!

"We had such a nice time with Said in the desert. The sunsets were beautiful and we loved our camels. Inchallah (god willing) we will be back soon!"

Whatever other Berber camps you saw, forget about them and book this one! Said and Ahmed are absolutely lovely, highly hospitable and just amazing! Also super friendly, accommodating and interesting! I'm really glad I booked this place! The camp is located 2 kilometres outside of M'Hamid in the dunes, which is good, because it's quiet. You'll be picked up in M'Hamid and dropped back off (or they order you a Tuck Tuck to get back). You'll have your own private hut, with a comfortable bed. The bathroom is shared and basic, but perfectly good. There is even a real toilet and not a squatty, which is comfortable for westerners. The cost-benefit-ratio boggles my mind! The Wi-Fi connection is actually very good. The food is fresh and amazing. The tea is delicious, the night sky amazing and Said and Ahmed will help and assist wherever they can. You can also book a tour with them, for example to Erg Chegaga. I did that too and it was awesome! I highly recommend this place and would go back immediately!

Amazing desert experience We had a fantastic stay at Shaid and Achmed. We feld super welcome. they are very kind and hospitable. The place is like a little comune with (little) cats and dogs and a lot of friends. Its like a desert-farm. The place is near the desert village M'Hamid (20 minutes walk) but it feels like far,far,far away from everthing. That makes the place special and makes a good otherworldly experience. From the place you can make different trips to the dunes of Chegaga. Depending on your wishes you can choose your adventure. They think in solutions! When you like adventure, nature and camping than is this place the place to be! Here your mind can be blown away;) We are already planning our next visit to Morocco to stay longer at this magical place of Said and Achmed. Thanks for everything see you later, insjallah!

Lifetime experiment We stayed three days is the desert and it was so wonderful. We ate like in a palace, fire under the stars, camels and sandbord and quad at chegaga dunes. Said and his friends are great people, as they said : "there's nothing like the desert"

Home away from home in the Sahara 🌅🌌 I would give 1 million stars if I could!!! I came here in October 2018 planning to have an extended stay for two weeks. Two weeks became three weeks became two months... and eventually it turned into the best six months of my life yet. Thank you Said, Ahmed, Mohamed, and Ohmaymuh (and many more) for changing the way I see myself and the rest of the world. Some of my favorite things about staying here: delivering a litter of kittens, attending a wild Moroccan wedding, learning to cook my own traditional Moroccan meals, becoming a sort-of-halfway-decent speaker of Moroccan-Arabic, AMAZING trips to Erg Chegaga and Erg Zeher, seeing the Milkyway every night, and of course being a part of this wonderful and caring family. I was a little apprehensive when looking for a place to stay as a solo-female traveller. I'm happy to say I felt exceptionally secure here, and had little trouble in Morocco as a whole. There's good phone connection (get an Orange SIM card). You can get almost anything you need in the village which is a 20 minute walk away. Except for breakfast, I would definitely assume that you should pay about 5€ per meal per person. You can use the kitchen, and the food in town is cheap. There's an ATM on the far side of the village (30 min walk). Said is a quiet man at first, but once he gets to know you he will open up. 😉 He is incredibly insightful, clever, honest, and thoughtful. I learned so much from him. I will carry his wise words in my heart wherever I go. Inchallah I will be back in no time. 🙂

2nd time and loving it I had visited Said, Ahmed and their friends three years ago and loved it so much, that I came back in February of 2019. I have to say, that I was so surprised by the amount of work they did for the past three years to improve their camp. We paid 45 Euro for a day, but it was definitely worth it! I can recommend this place to everyone, who is heading to the desert and is looking for kind guides ... and next time, we will most certainly stay longer with you guys! Thank you Said!

The best place in Morocco ever We were supposed to stay just a couple of nights but we ended up staying 5. The place was perfect, wonderful sky at night and beautiful dunes landscape by day. The camp is nice, well organized and clean considering that is still a camping at the door of the desert. The rooms are proper little houses, fresh by day and warm by night, very silent for good sleeping. Easy access to the toilet and warm water for the shower, any kind of utility is available, you just need your towel. Food is delicious and tea always incleded. The best part remains the people, Said and Ahmed are delightful and caring persons, always ready to help you and make you feel confortable. They will also help you to organize excursions and transfers. We recommend it to anyone looking for a truly local environment and life changing experience.

SUPER!!!!!!! Alex, Roc y yo hemos pasado cuatro días en compañía de Mohamed, Carol, Said y Mohamed. Ha sido una oportunidad magnífica para bañarse en la buena energía que desprenden esas dunas de colores de ensueño. Escuchar el silencio que te envuelve durante la noche y las estrellas que acechan protectoras. La dulzura del viento que se huele. Muchas gracias amigos!
