Merzouga Desert Tours and Activities


The 4×4 MERZOUGA DESERT TOUR AND ACTIVITY is an incredible adventure that takes you through the vast and awe-inspiring Moroccan desert. This tour allows you to explore the desert from the comfort of a 4×4 vehicle, which is essential for navigating the rough terrain. 

Some of the highlights of this tour include camping in a traditional Berber campsite, where you’ll be able to enjoy a Moroccan dinner around a campfire while listening to live music. You’ll also have the opportunity to take a camel ride through the towering sand dunes, which is an experience like no other. 

Other activities include sandboarding, trekking through the desert, and visiting the stunning Todgha Gorge. This tour is perfect for anyone looking for an unforgettable adventure in one of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes.


Our 4×4 Merzouga excursion offers an ideal opportunity for those seeking to explore the diverse and intriguing attractions around the Erg Chebbi dunes. 

Our journey begins by heading south toward the seasonal Dayt Sriji lake, provided it’s filled with water during your visit. 

This pristine lake often hosts a variety of avian species, including the graceful pink flamingos. As you stand by the lake’s edge, you’ll be treated to a picturesque scene: sand dunes stretching in one direction, with mountains gracing the other, creating a truly breathtaking vista.

Continuing on our adventure, we’ll make our way to the Khamlia village, where you can immerse yourself in the captivating rhythms of Gnawa music, an art form practiced by the descendants of people who immigrated to Morocco over a century ago. 

These people, originally brought to Morocco as slaves, have preserved their cultural heritage in the village, showcasing their unique African music style to interested visitors.

Our Merzouga Desert 4×4 tour will then take us to the M’ifis mines, a location known not only for its rich mineral and fossil deposits but also for its striking geographical position atop a high plateau. From this vantage point.

 you’ll be treated to a sweeping panoramic view of the dunes and the mesmerizing desert landscape. The mines, still operational, employ Berber workers who daily brave depths exceeding 35 meters, making it an intriguing stop on our journey.

As we traverse the Erg Chebbi region during our 4×4 tour, we’ll have the unique opportunity to visit a nomadic Berber family. These families continue their traditional desert lifestyle in tents amidst the vast Sahara. 

They’ll welcome us warmly, sharing a glass of refreshing mint tea and insights into nomadic life in the desert. 

Along the way, we’ll pause at various panoramic viewpoints, perfect for capturing stunning photographs of the surrounding beauty, before eventually returning to the village.

Our Merzouga desert tours can be arranged in either the morning or the afternoon. If you have your own vehicle, we’ll provide you with our location on Google Maps for easy navigation to our base in Ksar Tiharyen in Merzouga Desert.
