“Real Sahara feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Arriving to the dunes takes time in the 4x4 but that is exactly the part of the experience of having the feeling you are going into the Sahara. Beautiful dunes. Very hot in the afternoon as you would expect. Great experience.

“I like this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The trip into the pre-Sahara desert to see the Erg Chigaga is about 60 km and it takes 2-3 hours. To do this trip you need a jeep and a local guide; don't attempt to do it on your own. The dunes are evocative and beautiful, the silence important, the starry night is impressive. You can't go to Mhamid and not go this extra step - it is well worth while.

“Golden Dune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

An exciting trip by 4x4 into the desert followed by the most amazing vista. If you are selective about which excursion to do, this would be one you cannot miss. Highly recommend!!
