“Merzouga is Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The minute you step onto the sand dunes its quiet, and calm like snow. The sand changes color each minute of the day and its just simple but magical experience. Dont go to Morocco and skip this experience because it is honestly magical if you have never been to the Sahara Desert! The camel ride is the way to go too! Just be pre-paired to hang on and listen to the camel warden the rest they do for you.

“the Amazing merzouga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

i loved the simplicity of lifestyle in this area. the berbers are very nice. the fascination of the dunes is beyond discussion . absolutely a must see attraction. Moroccan Nomad Excursions took us to meet local families and share some local dishes with them.
