In the heart of the untouched Agafay Desert, standing against a backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains sits a handful of oriental-inspired nomadic tents where you will experience the true purity of Moroccan desert life.
Less than an hour's drive from Marrakech, Scarabeo Stone Desert Camp consists of 15 charming and capacious tents, eight of which are double suites, two twin suites and five family suites, all dotted throughout the vast terrain - en suite showers and heating are also included. With Oriental and African inspiration, the design of the camp and its interiors matches the landscape, featuring caramel-leather chairs, travel artefacts, Moroccan lanterns, bleached wood, weaved floor mats and Berber rugs - all made out of natural materials. Scarabeo Camp also offer pop-up lodging anywhere in Morocco where more standard lodgings are offered in European style canvas tents.
Wake up to the warm smell of the freshly baked bread in the mornings before heading out for an adventurous day in the desert and on your return, expect a feast of traditional Moroccan cuisine served around a candlelit communal table.
Scarabeo Camp is designed for guests to enjoy the great outdoors and offers an array of activities. These include dune buggying, camel back riding, a half or full day trek, yoga, and stargazing with an astronomy professor. With Marrakech not far away, all of the capitals activities are within reach too.
The real beauty here lies in its surroundings, after dinner recline in a traditional Moroccan lounge strewn with ethnic cushions, look up and get lost in the blanket of spectacular stars. Stone Desert Camp is a place to completely unwind and disconnect.
