I have been in Morocco a few times now and I have always had a wonderful experience visiting this beautiful country with its hospitable people. The sun, desert and sand, camels and dates, meals in different off-road bistros, tajines and fresh orange juice, the colourful stands with handicrafts and snacks in market places, pomegranates right from the tree, mountains and...

Beautiful dunes. Pictures do not capture the color and peacefulness in the desert. We had guides take us on an overnight journey, which were one of the highlights on our trip to Morocco. To see the night sky in the desert brought every constellation to life. We even saw multiple shooting stars! Camping with our Berber guides was such a... More

You have not been to Morocco, if you have not taken a desert tour! I never thought that seeing and being in the desert will leave such an impression on me! The desert tour was included in the 10 day itinerary made by our travel agency Igomorocco. Just after we had arrived to the hotel Kanz Erremal in Merzouga, from... More

Wow, the sunrise here was excellent and we saw a lot of Camel caravans leaving the dunes after a night bivak. We also visited a part where there was a lot of fossils to be found and a lake that is only there for a few months of the year.

If you are on a budget, you do not need to shell out for a camel to experience the dunes. Just walk and your experience will probably be all the better for not sharing it with a herd of tourists and camels!

I'd never been to the desert before and this was an incredible experience. Choosing a Bivouac well inside the dessert dunes was key to the experience since it allowed us to see the dunes in a way that matched my expectations. You grow up seeing movies about the dessert and this definitely matched it.
