They've looked like as if they were in the Indiana Jones movies.

They've also used to sleep in desert tents with berbers. What an so adventurous way to travel and sleep in Morocco, instead of always going to hotels.

Adventurers should hop on a camel back for any trip through the golden Sahara sand dunes at Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga. Spend the night in a desert tent, under the incredibly starred sky. The Sahara is also accessible near the town of Zagora; it's easier to get to from Marrakech but doesn't have the imposing dunes of Erg Chebbi.
