Arriving to the dunes via a 4x4 vehicle an hour before official sunset, we were greeted by a sea of rolling golden sand rising dramatically from the desert floor. Mounting our camels we made our way at a slow pace, towards an elevated flat area where we dismounted and prepared to watch this spectacular and unforgettable experience. It was truly... More

Dunes are really nice, especially for offroad lovers. But comparing to the "full size" ones, like in Namibia for example, they just look like a toy story.

The sky is a brilliant shade of blue by day and the contrast with the golden sands is amazing. A highlight for me was watching the sun set without any buildings, humans or vehicles getting in your way - a large horizon with the beautiful colours changing. This place was great and different to anywhere else I have travelled and... More

This is a must-do trip if in Merzouga. Riding on the dromedaries,climbing the dunes, sitting under the starry sky and overnighting in a Berber tent; a priceless experience. Distracting from this beautiful experience were the dirt bikes and quads, as well as the jeeps picking up guests at the oasis next morning. If you can ride in, you can also... More

The Sahara is a great playground for adults and children alike. I highly recommend staying at Ksar Bicha and letting Ali set you up to explore it!

Plenty to do- Stay in a haima, drive a quad or walk to the the top of the big dune. Or simply just enjoy the view.

Ridng a camel at sunset on the dunes was incredible. I also walked off by myself to enjoy the stillness and soak up the scene. We rode a jeep for an hour to get there and that was fun too. Beware of the guides unless you really wnat to buy fossil souvenirs! You have to pay to ride a camel;... More
