One night camping in the desert in Morocco?

Jump to last reply

I've got a trip planned for this May that includes one night in a tent in the dunes at Merzouga.
Many people have written that it's a must-do, once in a lifetime experience, totally amazing, etc. But I have read a few reports that made it sound not so fabulous (mouse running around the tent, stomach issues with no bathroom, painful camel ride, etc.).

So I'm starting to second guess my decision to do the camp-out night and wondering if anyone who's done it will weigh in with their opinion.
I'm not a roughing it kind of person but I could tolerate pretty much any accomodations for one night. Although if I knew there was a mouse in the tent with me I don't think I'd sleep a wink.

The other option would be staying at a hotel near the dune-line and riding camels in just for the sunset & sleeping at the hotel.

Any thoughts?
