Staying at Chez les Habitants Merzuga Guesthouse is one of the most extraordinary experiences you can have in Morocco. The family is very generous, kind and friendly, the food is good and spending a couple of night in the desert is amazing. Guaranteed the real sahara experience you can get in Morocco!
