10 of the best glamping locations - 10. Scarabeo Camp, Morocco
The ‘wow’ factor: An unusual encampment in an exceptional setting is the Scarabeo Camp’s ‘magic formula’. Consisting of a dozen oriental-inspired tents, pitched in some of the most beautiful parts of Morocco, in North Africa, they are spacious and comfortable and decorated with uniquely sourced furniture and fittings. Locally crafted artworks form a harmonious entity with the sometimes starkly intense surroundings. Set against an elegant, yet simple backdrop, the overall impression imparted is that of being on an
expedition, perhaps from another time.
Did you know? With a coastline just nine miles across the entrance to the Mediterranean, it is understandable that Spain took Morocco as a protectorate but so did France. In fact, French is almost as common a language as Arabic or Berber. King Mohamed VI is the country’s ruler and Morocco has been independent since 1956.
Getting there: Several airlines, including Royal Air Maroc, fly direct from Heathrow into Marrakech from as little as £169 return, however, Agadir and Casablanca also accept flights from the UK. While a week at Scarabeo will cost from around £545, transfers to the camp from the airport are included.
