    Camels at dawn, Sahara near Zagora

    Luggage and bags: A small rucksack - enough just to carry overnight supplies

    The camels carry these bags on your saddle - sleeping bags etc are carried in panniers.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfy loose fitting trousers /cut offs, long sleeved shirt for sun protection, hat or scarf, sunglasses.

    Sandals are ok for riding the camels, but if walking, there are some sharp thistle/cactus type plants.

    (We travelled late afternoon and earlyish morning in early September )

    Fleece jacket/waterproof - we did feel a few drops of rain on the way!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Overnight toiletries ie toothbrush/paste, soap, deodorant, loo roll, mossie repellent,
    sun screen, eye drops, Lip balm
    Any medication you take or might need.
    ear plugs!

    Photo Equipment: Whatever you can carry- plenty of photo ops!
    A protective bag - the sand gets everywhere!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sleeping bag - Although We'd been advised to bring a sleeping bag, and I was advised by our camping shop to purchase one suitable for very cold conditions, I didn't use it, as it was too warm. However, It can get very cold once the sun has gone, and perhaps we were lucky - better to be over prepared for all eventualities!

    Miscellaneous: Sunglasses,Torch (+ batteries), scarf (arabic style) in case a wind blows up- to wrap around your face,
    Bottled water/ juice etc.
    Wet wipes. Tissues/loo roll
    One of our party had a sketch pad and pens - so if You're artistically inclined- art materials!

    Take as less as you can

    Miscellaneous: Just take a little bag so that it's not to heavy for the dromedary.
    -Don't forget to take some water.
    -A "cheich" can be very useful too in the desert : it protects against the sun, the wind, the cold ...
    -Warm clothes for the night.
    -A sleeping bag if you have one (otherwise, you'll have warm blankets anyway).
    -Toilet paper can also be useful but it's better not to leave the paper in the sand but to take it back with you to throw it away later.

    Pack for hot climate

    Luggage and bags: Morocco can be very hot, especially from March to October, so don't forget to bring some light clothes, T-Shirts and shorts.
    Bring some warm clothes too, if you are planning to go to the desert (it get's really cold at night), and some long trousers if you want to visit mosques and religious buildings.
