Visiting the Sahara desert is a unique and different trip that is worth doing once in your life and that will make you live sensations worth remembering.
Imagine riding a camel and crossing the Sahara Desert with nothing around you. The only thing that breaks the silence are the calm steps of the camel on the sand, above you, an immensely blue and clear sky during the day and covered with shining stars at night … a relaxing experience and peaceful, the great strangers of Sahara desert.
The Sahara Desert of Morocco
A short distance from the village of Merzouga and about 50 km southeast of the Erfoud, you will find the largest and finest sand dunes in Morocco, it’s the Erg-Chebbi Sand dunes.
These golden sand dunes, which can reach 260 meters in height, form an almost perfect straight line that runs from north to south of the Merzouga village.
This sea of sand dunes provides an incredible backdrop to experience an authentic desert adventure with camel excursions through the dunes to reach a desert camp in the middle of Erg-Chebbi dunes. There, you can taste a typical berber tagine prepared in the desert tents.
You will have the opportunity to explore the stunning landscape of the desert and you can climb the dunes to enjoy the sunset and the sunrise. With the tranquility of the night, you can seat outside the tent to enjoy the shooting stars.
Possibly, the camel excursions are not the most comfortable way to travel for some, but it is undoubtedly a unique and essential experience that will discover the way of the berber nomadic life in the Sahara.
