The Erg Chebbi is one of the main dunes of Merzouga. It is a fantastic high dune that makes one feel climbing a steep hill. The reddish colour of the sand is typical of the area. I stayed in one of the camps. It was a nice experience to mix with the locals and eat their superb cooking.

Beautiful and very fine. I was impressed to visit the orange sand desert. The dunes are big and on clear days you can see stars, beautiful sunrise and sunset. Would go again but this time in summer. I went during winter (Dec 2015), it was very cold at night.

One's experience and memory of Erg Chebbi -- a large pond of sand in an otherwise stony desert -- depends on the season. Being there in late November/December meant that the sand underfoot was always cool, even cold at night. It isn't the stereotype of a desert. The best way to walk the dunes is to go barefoot -- the... More

He picked us up from our Riad in Marrakech in a 4 wheel drive. Youssef travelled in our 4 wheel drive and was great at answering all... More

We had such amazing trip through the spots of Morocco. Erg Chebbi in Merzouga is one of them. the beautiful sceneries took us back to past when the man was living such a nomadic lifestyle and using the comels as their means of transport. we had great pictures and funny time with our camelman and the guide. We will definitely... More

A place you could explore with the berbers on a camel trip, spendign the night in one of their camps. Amazing views and silky dunes horizon.

Erg Chebbi is such a wonderful location. High dunes, a mountain range of sand. Climbing to the top and watching the sun rise or sunset. An absolutely breath-taking experience!
