Merzouga desert is one of the best places we visited during our visit to Morocco, the golden sand dunes, magical sunset and sunrise were unforgettable, this experience would be better if we didn't had problems with the hotel we stayed in

The Erg Chebbi is a superb place to experience a tour in the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert. You get to the dunes pretty easily by the road, and can sleep in one of the multiple hotels in the city of Merzouga. There are plenty of tours organized in the dunes where you can ride the camels, have a... More

we did both sunset safari and sunrise safari for 150 MAD each. It was for about 1 1/2 hours each. The camel owners will take you only about 4-5 kms inside the sahara from the main road. However if you are a die hard fan and have time and are ready to bear the sun, I think doing a safari... More

The dunes are spectacular. Don't short change yourself. Given the drive, we wished we had added extra days to our stay. It's just incredible to go in and wander around, marvelling at another incredible expression of Gods creativity.

Seriously, almost unreal. No matter how many times you've seen the desert, its awesome power and beauty never disappoints. The only thing that is annoying is the noise of the off-road vehicles, particularly when trying to enjoy a peaceful sunset. If you get high enough on the dunes, you can watch the sun rise over Algeria!

Must see in Morocco. This was the highlight of my trip to Morocco! It took two days to get there from Marrakech and we took a camel ride out to the desert. Spend one night under the crystal clear desert skies and you can see the stars. It is a sight to see and one you don't see enough living... More

Spend one night in a traditional Berber desert camp near the village of Merzouga and it was a unique experience. The sunrise in the desert is absolutely spectacular. Our host cooked a traditional dinner and we spent a nice evening in the light of candles. Make sure to bring both warm and light clothes, as, in the desert, it's very... More
