From the cinnamon-colored sands of the Sahara to the other-worldly salt flats of Bolivia; desert travels offer once-in-a-lifetime adventures. Whether trekking, sand boarding, photographing, or camping - deserts around the world offer a glimpse into the barrenness that we do not get to see in our daily life. There is just something about traveling to desert places that stirs our soul.

With so many desert places around the world, we have come up with a short list of desert travel experiences to get you started planning your desert travels.

Sahara Desert From Marrakech, Morocco

Trek on a camel through the large seas of sand dunes of the pre-Saharan Steppe, Erg Chebbi, enjoy traditional tagine and sweet mint tea, spend an evening under the stars in Berber tent in the Sahara Desert, pass through the High Atlas Mountains and visit the UNESCO-listed Aït Benhaddou kasbah.

Kalahari Desert, Botswana

Travel to Botswana with Keytours Vacations
Botswana is one of Africa’s best kept secrets, with the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, the Kalahari Desert and one of the largest concentrations of wild game. Unique and varied safari experiences steal the limelight in this land of quiet waterways, dry deserts and game-rich savannahs. The Northern plains of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve face a huge pan with endless horizons and vast skies to take your breath away. Travelers to Botswana will be immersed in the local culture through an interpretive guided Bushman walk. They will observe lions, cheetahs, brown hyaenas and wildebeest in their natural habitats. This is Africa untamed in all its magnificent glory.
