I thoroughly enjoyed my camel trek into the Erg Chebbi dunes. We stayed at the Merzouga bivouac and enjoyed the stars and music in the evening after a delicious dinner. Our tour guide Zaid with Best Morocco Tours did a great job

We enjoyed a great camel trek from here out into the Sahara and it was a wonderful experience. The trek was slow and beautiful through the sand dunes and the sky was the most amazing blue colour I have seen. The guides were friendly and we enjoyed a great night of music and feasting in our Berber tents. It was... More

It's hard to find a place in the desert without lots of tourists (I guess you need a camel ride of a few days) but Merzouga is a great place to go to enjoy the desert. Can be cold in January
