Trekking In the desert of Morocco (8days)


  It's a trip that starts from Marrakech with three days walking in the dunes of ergs in Merzouga region (Erg Echebbi and Erg Znaigui). The ideal time is from the months October until May. For those seeking the pleasure of walking in the sand and watching the stars, this wonderful site will make them appreciate the immensity of the sky. The height of the great red dunes can reach 200m, sunset is impressive.

Camel ride in the sahara remains one of the highlights of our trip in the south of Morocco.

So far from the civilisation, spending the night in the sahara revives calm and sobriety.
