I am kind of worried about driving down to Merzouga from Fes. From what I've read, it gets kind of confusing after Rissani, as there are two roads and one is not paved. I've also read about people offering to lead you through this part (for a fee of course), and there are numerous tales of getting one's car stuck in the sand and having to push it out.
Since I am a female and will be traveling alone, the possibility that I would get stuck in the sand will not make for a funny memory as far as I am concerned.
So, can someone please let me know what this drive is really like?
I have been looking into taking the bus there and having a driver take me back, leaving my rental in Fes, since I'm worried about this drive!
