Enroute, as we and our our driver bid goodbye to the... More

This is a definite must if you are going to visit Morocco. We did camel trekking from our Riad Madu (in the Merzouga Desert) and traveled to the middle of the dunes to observe the sunrise. Words and pictures cannot describe the experience. Must do.

I really enjoyed the sunrise over the dunes and got some incredible photos there. My only piece of advice would be *wear gloves* because it's cold and handling a camera is tough with numb fingers. This is made worse by the fact that the handles on the camels we rode were metal, which conducted away heat even more.

During dinner at the first comes a side dish (rice) or salad, but don't eat everything, because the main food (tagine) with lot of meat comes after that. When your guide offer you ,,sand shower'' by prepare for bury to the sand. Berbers maybe... More

Running up and down bare foot is an unbelievable experience. Your feet sinks in this silky soft sand.

I don't care how cheesy you may think it is, or what kind of budget you are on. Do it cheap, do it luxury, but do it. Personally, I took a camel ride in, camped at a mid range camp, and camel ride out. Dinner was included. Transfer as well.

The sand gets everywhere, and you'll be finding it in your shoes for weeks, but it's worth it. Stunning views, an amazing experience you should have while in Morocco. Great sunsets, too.
