Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

Video: My Stunning Helicopter Ride Over the Sahara

Wendy Perrin | November 19, 2014

Luxury travel used to mean staying in opulent places. Today it means something different entirely. I’m just back from the greatest luxury of all: Space, silence, and solitude in a place of extreme natural beauty. In a world filled with tourist destinations spoiled by crowds and overbuilding, it seems like the ultimate luxury to have sunrise, sunset, and unobstructed panoramic views all to yourself.

That’s what I had. In the Sahara Desert. I hopped a helicopter from Marrakech to what is probably the most remote part of Morocco. There was nothing but empty sand dunes for as far as the eye could see…and for many miles beyond that. Three friends and I were the only people to land in the desert encampment there and live out our Lawrence of Arabia fantasies for a night. (That’s besides the staff who set up our tents, prepared our meals, and carried our bags but otherwise remained out of sight behind a dune.) I’ll tell you much more about my Morocco adventures over the next few weeks, but I thought I’d start with this taste of our chopper landing in the Sahara. The experience was arranged by my Trusted Travel Expert for Morocco.
