Everything you need to know to book at Kam Kam Dunes
As we know that our camp concept is a bit confusing when it comes to booking with us, let’s start at the beginning.
What is Kam Kam Dunes?
Kam Kam Dunes is a luxury camp in the heart of Erg Chebbi, the largest desert in Morocco, where you can stay and live adventures such as a camel ride or ride the dunes on a quad.
In short, it works like any other accommodation: you book and you come.
Whether you arrive driving a rented car, with an independent driver, or by public transport, it’s up to you, because the prices of moving around in Morocco are varied.
To help you understand the magnitude of the movement, imagine a “V” and place from left to right and from top to bottom: Marrakech, Fez, and at the lower vertex Kam Kam Dunes, in the Merzouga area.
