An overnight camel trek into a camp in the Erg Chebbi dunes is a must do if you visit this area! We absolutely loved watching the sunset and sunrise from deep in the desert. If you do visit in the winter months bring warm clothing including hats and mittens for the nighttime, it gets cold!

One of the best experiences ever was the night in the dessert. The dunes are simply amazing. I just wish, we would have stayed for more than one night.

The Erg Chebbi is one of the most amazing thing what i've ever seen. The best to visit it is in spring because it is not so hot but still nice warm. We went to a camel ride in the morning. You could go to a kashbah where they offer accomodation and camel tours.

...and walking the ridgeline of steep sand dunes. And watching the scarab beetles skitter across a wind-rippled dune face. And coming back after dark to sit in the still-warm sand as the stars came out and it grew cold. I think this was one of my favorite places on the five continents I've visited.

Erg Chebbi is an awesome sight not to be missed in the South of Morocco, with amazing sunsets and sunrises - as if the sky was on fire. The colors of the dunes were absolutely amazing, kaleidoscope-like colors of beiges, peaches, browns and oranges. Do take the camel ride to the top of the dunes for sunrise. However, in the... More

This is the place where you can truly experience the desert that you see in the movies. Undulating sand dunes, camels gracefully pacing accross the sand, silence and a night in a million star hotel. Most desert is not like this - it's mostly endlessly flat, stony and boring, but a few places, like Erg Chebbi make the fantasy real.... More

We used the services of Sahara Sightseeing in October 2014. We three were on our own in Fez, Volubilis, and later Marrakesh and Essaoira, but in the middle used Sahara Sightseeing to plan a three day trip for us into the Sahara, the Atlas Mountains and the Dades Valley. We were picked up at our riad in Fez. We had... More

Although I served in the Peace Corps for two years not two hours from the sight, I never visited the dunes while I lived there. What a mistake--they are absolutely not to be believed--enormous golden dunes that are as incredible as you might have heard. A highlight of my many times spent in the beautiful Kingdom of Morocco.
