I'm trying to organise a trip to the desert in early May for a party of 4 pp. Two of us are coming from Fez - the other two from Marakkech. We are hoping to meet in the desert (perhaps in Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga) after a full day of travel. The aim is travel all day Saturday - have Saturday night/Sunday/Sunday night in the desert and drive back on Monday to Marakkech. We also want to camp in the desert instead of just stay in one of the desert towns. Is this feasible? I've heard it's an 8-9 hour car trip and many on the forum suggest to take a break - but we really want to see the sand dunes over our short trip!
Any help would be appreciated.
