Our trip to Morocco Kasbahs and Deserts was excellent. I told our wonderful tour guide Mohammed that I learned more on this tour than on any other trip. Traveling in Morocco was a portal to a very new, interesting, and exotic country for me. I loved being introduced to the different cultures and people of the country. The camel ride was a very special highlight of the tour!

It was a very wonderful experience. The sites that we've come to see and visit were all great! Our guide Abdel was very knowledgeable, understanding, kind, considerate, attentive to our needs and very patient with all of us. The camp and food in the desert were all great!

It depends on the period you’d like to experience Sahara Desert. The tents are well-equipped (enough blankets, hot water, and extra pillows).

  • Summer: (end of June – Augusts) light and soft clothes, such as scarf, skirts, slippers, skin protection, sunglasses.
  • Winter: (October – end of March) warm clothes, sneakers, extra jacket or coat.

The best time to do this 2-day Marrakech desert tour is all seasons of the year except summer. You might feel overwhelmed by sandstorms and high temperatures.

The best way to experience Sahara desert is by camel ride. To enjoy this ancient transport, put comfortable clothes on, loose pants, sneakers and a small bag where you can put some stuff in, like a bottle of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a camera if you have any.

So many Sahara desert adventures get confused between Sahara Desert of Erg Chigaga and Sahara Desert of Erg Chebbi. Both of them would take your breath away! But here is one thing to keep in mind, if you’re looking for a typical lifestyle and would like to stay away from touristy places, then Sahara Desert of Erg Chigaga means you. On the other hand, Sahara Desert of Erg Chebbi in Merzouga attracts tons of visitors all over the world, due to its high clean oragned-sand dunes and luxury camps.
