The New Year in the Sahara Desert sounds amazing! Imagine delicious food, fantastic music, and a festive atmosphere – like stepping into a real-life fairytale! My friends and I had a blast celebrating with a party, fireworks, and live music. The desert camp was beautiful and filled with joy. I was having so much fun I barely took photos, but I got some awesome videos on Facebook (hit me up if you want to see them!). Overall, the experience was incredible – the desert scenery was stunning, but the amazing celebration made it unforgettable. If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate New Year’s Eve, this is something to consider!

We got to experience bustling cities like Tangier and Fes, learning about Moroccan culture, including the Berber way of life. The highlight for me was the Sahara Desert. We rode camels through the dunes and spent the night under a sky full of constellations – it was breathtaking! The food was delicious too, we got to explore the incredible Caves of Hercules for free! We started in Tangier with a delicious dinner, then headed to Fes where we saw the most beautiful mosque in the city. A few days later, we arrived in Merzouga late at night but were warmly welcomed. We stayed in a beautiful and cozy Riad, had a fantastic breakfast, and then set off on our camel trek into the desert. Spending the night in a traditional tent (khaima) under the stars with such great company was an unforgettable experience. This trip was so amazing, I can’t wait to do it again!
