Spent time rolling around the dunes and climbing them. The sand is as soft as as pillow. Getting here though can be quite a drive. If done through tours expect some long driving times but once you get here, you would have forgotten all about how sleepless you are.

If you want to see sand dunes in Morocco easily - go to Merzouga. You'll sleep next to them. Plenty of choice of trips to the dessert overnight, plenty of hotels. Nothing more to do :)

Sharing unique experiences with your family is special. These types of opportunities create incredible family memories. Our camel trek and overnight stay in the Sahara at the Merzouga Dunes was spectacular. Our tour company, Trips to Morocco, arranged everything, and our family (including six adults and two small grandchildren) could not have enjoyed it more. It was exotic, exciting, and... More

the desert experience is one that will change your life - silence, beauty and clean energy will help you to meet yourself. Merzouga has the nicest dunes in all Morocco, because of the little crystals mixed with sands it reflects the sun light and shine in changing colors along the whole day....

Breathtakingly beautiful...do not miss this opportunity. Enjoy a camel ride, sit on a blanket and watch the sun rise. The grain of the sand is very, very fine...and orange! Spectacular!!!!!!

All I can say is just breathtaking! The dunes are just peaceful and gives you the chance to concentrate, relax and enjoy the blue skies during the day and thousand of starts during the night. If you climb to the higher points you will have the chance to enjoy a wonderful view of sunset (Sunrise as well) and don't forget... More

We explored them by feet and on camels, early in the morning and at the end of the day, and every time we were in total awe! Be sure to make a buggy / quad tour in the dunes, absolute fun!
