The Sahara, the desert, the moon, the stars, the planets, constellations, meteors and the Milky Way have been fascinating humans since the dawn of man. The Sahara is a very popular highlight in any tour to Morocco. And stargazing in the desert night is guaranteed to become a truly unforgettable experience. Just one more reason why you should not miss it while being in the area!

We invite you to discover the beauty of the sky from our camp site in the desert in the deep South of Morocco. We are based in Erfoud, where the sky meets the Earth. We welcome you to share our knowledge and experience in astronomy at our camp, so come to the deep South of the Moroccan desert to make your dream become a reality!

Many civilizations from antiquity, including the early Babylonians and Mesopotamians, the Maya, the Chinese, the Arabs - in particular during the Midvale period - and the Greeks, with the rest of the Europeans following in their tracks, have explored the sky, discovered, named and enjoyed a lot of stars, constellations, galaxies, planets and more. The began using their discoveries for orientation purposes, as reference and guidance in the desert to safely run their trading routes by caravans from South to North and vice versa. The stars showed them their way - back to their camp sites and families.


SO ARE YOU DREAMING OF THE DESERT NIGHT SKY ?

Discover the Milky Way, the Polar Star, the Planets Saturn and Jupiter, the constellations of the Big Dipper, Little Dipper and Cassiopeia. Continue with other planets, stars and constellations with both your naked eye as well as our 200 mm telescope.

Imagine what you will be able to see through our equipment! You may be able to identify stars like Arcturus, Aldebaran, Alderamine, Vega, Altair, Sirius, Rigel and many more. Would you like to see a falling star and make a wish - chances are tremendous! Do not observe only one but - with a little luck - several meteors per night! Discover and admire the sky, the planets, the stars from this unique observation point.

Take your very own actual observations of the sky by using our telescope as much as you wish. Decide for your own whether the famous constellation you see is really a big bear --- or rather a casserole or even a camel !
