Experience the magic of Morocco in a very special and unique style! Pulled by a DH Diesel locomotive, the three coach L’Oriental Desert Express Train runs just a handful of times each year. Boarding at Oujda we can relax and enjoy this extraordinary train ride in our specially reserved first class air-conditioned passenger coach that is coupled with a viewing coach which provides breath-taking panoramic views.
As this is no ordinary train journey we can make unscheduled stops along the way when we meet and greet the nomadic people who inhabit the L’Oriental Plateau. We’ll know that we are getting closer to the Sahara as every now and again we may also have to stop to clear sand off this rarely used line. A helping hand with this is always welcome, and makes for great photographs. Just how often do you show your friends photos of yourself clearing Saharan sand off a railway line to enable your own private train to continue its journey?
