  2. Transportation: Here are your options for transportation:

    • Private Car: This offers the most flexibility and allows you to set your own schedule. You can hire a driver to take you to Merzouga and back, stopping at points of interest along the way.
    • Guided Tour: Many tour operators in Marrakech, Fes, or other nearby cities offer desert tours to Merzouga. These tours often include transportation, camel trekking, and a night in a desert camp.


    • Day 1: Depart from your starting location (Marrakech, Fes, etc.) early in the morning, and enjoy the scenic drive through the High Atlas Mountains, Berber villages, and stunning landscapes.
    • Midday: Arrive in Merzouga in the afternoon. Meet your camel guide and start your camel trek into the desert, crossing the mesmerizing sand dunes.
    • Late Afternoon: Reach the desert camp nestled amidst the dunes. Enjoy the magical sunset over the desert, traditional Moroccan dinner, and local music around the campfire.
    • Night: Spend the night in a comfortable desert tent, experiencing the tranquility and beauty of the desert under the starry sky.


    • Camel Trekking: Enjoy a unique camel ride through the vast sand dunes of Erg Chebbi, with a local guide leading the way.
    • Sunset and Sunrise: The Sahara offers breathtaking sunsets and sunrises. Make sure to capture these moments on camera.
    • Stargazing: The desert’s lack of light pollution provides an opportunity for excellent stargazing. The night sky in the Sahara is a spectacle.
  1. Tips:

    • Dress in layers, as the desert can be hot during the day and cool at night.
    • Bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and sufficient water.
    • Respect local customs and traditions.
    • Consider extending your stay if possible, as a longer desert experience allows for deeper exploration and relaxation.
