Take your time and spend a couple of days here. The star studded night sky, the orange sand dunes, the unique Auberge de sud, the Kamli sudanese music, the fossil store in Erfoud were all excellent. We also got to experience the 50mph sand storm. A wonderful experience.

They took care of the entire experience for us, including lodging the first night at the Riad Nezha in Merzouga, and also the evening at... More

Running barefoot down the side of a huge sand dune after watching the sun set, the desert aglow... Don't miss this magical experience.

The sand dunes in Merzouga are straight out of the movies. All of our pictures look photo shopped or like they were done in Disney.

Incredible landscape, away from civilization, near the algerian border. I was there in the very begining of march, the weather was weird it rained a little bit and it was cloudy, but anyway an awesome way to relax and also to move walking and sandboarding around!
