We spent the night in this Bedoin tent in the Sahara near Erfoud, Morocco. The sand is this color, orange. The desert was actually wet in April, the night was cold and clear. The stars were amazing. Recommended.
Many tour companies can arrange an overnight in the desert, either in a hotel at the edge of the dunes or in a private tented encampment.

600 Foot dune. Dawn.
We rode camels as far as we could into the big empty, then scrabbled up this 600 foot tall dune to watch the sun rise about 5:30am. It was unfortunately hazy from humidity, but the colors were spectacular. No sound. No scent. So eternal.

There are many companies that book tents in the desert, some large, some small and intimate. Erfoud is a common jumping off point for these escapes to the desert.
A night in the desert is a magical experience.....
A zillion stars, a good tagine and Moroccan wines, usually some local musicians and a quiet peaceful, cold night.
