Overnight in Sahara via flight to Errachidia?


My wife and I will be in Morocco in mid-March, and don't have enough days to drive the 8 hours each way to Merzouga for an overnight on the dunes.

I ran across an outfitter/guide/service called "Morocco Journeys" that has just what we would want, fly from Marrakesh to Errachidia, make ones way to the dunes at Merzouga, spend an overnight in the desert, and then fly back to Marrakech the next mid-day.

Has anyone had experience with either this itinerary or this company? With other companies offering the same (rough) itinerary? The fact that I have only seen one offering like this on the web makes me a little nervous, but it sure would seem to save some precious vacation time.

Thanks in advance for any feedback,

How many days do you have in Morocco, i think you don't need to be in hurry just for an overnight in the desert, that's too much for it, if you don't have much time to do it, save the desert experience for another time, as you can enjoy the contrast of Morocco Landscapes in Morocco, by the high atlas Mountains, and enjoying the most amazing road of Thousand kasbah to the desert via the Dades Valley, and the Todra Gorges, never heard about someone did the plan you suggsted before.

enjoy Marrakech and do some day trips to Essaouira or teh High atlas Mountains.
