One day in Merzouga
Imagine yourself on top a camel, trekking through the Sahara Desert. There is nothing around you and all you can hear are the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand. The sky is vast and clear in the day and filled with millions of bright stars at night… very peaceful experience and a journey well worth the effort in which you will have fond memories to last you forever. Visit kasbahs, see orange sand dunes, lush fertile oases, and serrated mountain summits fill the vistas. With the grand solitude and silence of the Sahara, and nights spent under nomadic tents, you’ll feel the mysterious power that the desert has always had over the human soul.
The dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga is 30 miles (50km) south east of Erfoud and has the highest and most spectacular sand dunes in Morocco. These golden dunes are 50 meters high from the desert floor. They run in a line almost perfectly north-south direction to the village of Merzouga and beyond, and mark the western fringe of the Sahara Desert, dividing Morocco from Algeria…
This ocean of pure Saharan sand, provides the back drop to an authentic Arabian adventure which involves a camel trek across the dunes to a secluded oasis, where an authentic spicy Berber Tagine is being prepared over an open fire by Bedouin tents.
Camel trekking may not be the most comfortable means of traveling for some, but it is undoubtedly a ‘must’ for every traveler as a way to experience the mode of transport of the Berber nomads of the Sahara. Everyone has a fantasy to be Lawrence of Arabia for a short part of their life and this is an ideal opportunity to fulfill that dream.
