The Sahara is amazing.

Best place in Morocco. The size and scope is unreal. Being in the middle of what seems to be an unending desert is awe inspiring.

Merzouga is a small village at the feet of Sahara's dunes. You get there by tar road and you have a wide range of hotels and desert camps offers to be able to enjoy the desert in a comfortable way.

Ride a camel into the dunes and watch the sun go down and the colours change gradually. Normally a 4 hour trip which makes for a magical experience.

the views are beautiful and the night at beduine tents a real experience. Although big, this is not a all sand desert - a lot is what they call black desert, from vulcanic rock, which makes driving a lot easier. The dunes are some 60km long, thou, so you get enough of it. Because the mountains at the Algeria border... More

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
