Come with us to Morocco to explore a land of colourful contrasts, a land where one comes face to face with nature at its most magnificent and cities at their finest. As far as I know, the only bus company that goes all the way to Merzouga is Supratours ( ). Other companies, such as CTM, travel to the nearby towns of Rissani and Erfoud, but don't go all the way to the dunes. These ones were even more interesting — dry, dusty mountains, enormous gorges, spectacular waterfalls and lush green valleys, which looked wildly out of place in the middle of the desert. With a plenty of Camel trekking Tours , Day trips, private tours, morocco tours , package tours, holiday morocco , travel morocco and tailor-made holidays to choose from, you can travel to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi dunes in your own style. We, at Morocco Road Trips, specialize in organizing sahara desert safaris and holidays arround Morocco. Experience the Moroccan Sahara Desert on a 3-day safari tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. It is bordered to the north by the Mediterranean Sea, by the desert of Figuig to the south and by the Algerian border in the east.

Among the most requested of these tours are the ones that cover the historical sites of Jordan, the rose-colored city of Petra and its wide range of archaeological digs. Traveling through Morocco with Morocco Explored allowed us to get out of the pampered environment to see the country and to meet and talk to Morrocans. Ben and Anna helped us plan a eleven day holiday to include trekking in the Atlas Mountains, exploring Marrakesh and surfing on the Atlantic coast. Available on the market are based a huge number of far way by you, you could still avail their most affordable travel packages for you to Morocco , as a result of the website on-line.

The camel safari Q & I did through the Thar desert felt just as special, except for the fact that India recently installed power windmills that really was a distraction from the desert. On arriving in Tagounite, you reach tarmac road in a small village and then continue to the end of the road to reach your luxury hotel or guesthouse at the end of the day. I just read this article and it reminds me of our desert tour from Marrakech, we say alot more then just dunes too :). Your vacation in the Sahara desert is incomplete without a visit to Matmata, a much sought after tourist destination. Window seats are guaranteed, and the guide will rotate between the different vehicles in the group every day.

Flying from the UK... Marrakech has an international airport (RAK) which is serviced by several airlines flying direct from the UK. The flight time is around 3.5hours. If you choose to trek for longer time, you will discover rich desert oasis and watch the rare birds such as desert-sparau and the Houbara bustard in the vast Sahara desert.

If you want to start from Fes and end in Marrakech we recommend this 5 day & 4 night tour in order to have enough time in each place and also to avoid long car drive. This is the most convenient way to see the famous sights and cities of Morocco with everything you need all in one perfect package. Weather varies around Morocco but generally remains comfortable making it a good destination all year round. There are lots of hotels in Merzouga and the surrounding area offering a range of services and prices for all tastes and budgets. We are an Morocco managed tour operator and destination management company, specializing in providing flexible tours, complete travel packages & great holiday experiences. Tourists can even choose a package that extends the camel safari up to few days.

However, if you want to visit the Sahara on a budget, or you simply prefer the freedom of independent travel to the organised structure of a tour, then a DIY trip to the desert is entirely possible, even if the internet seems to suggest it isn't. You will start at 10:00 the morning after one hour and half by camel , You will visit a very old village behind the dunes of Erg Chebbi where a family lives can see how the original inhabitants of the desert live, in traditional tents. The guide was friendly and helpful and the camel ride to the Berber desert camp great fun. Be sure to book the best travel deals with us. Travel Morocco with Blue Men and discover an amazing destination. The Sahara Desert Tours in Morocco believes in imparting the best and innovative places around the world along with the spectacular features based experience.

Several Marrakech day trips include the Ourika Valley & Atlas Mountains Day Trip, Ait Benhaddou Kasbahs Day Trip, Imlil Village Day Trip, Marrakesh Medina Guided Tour and many more. Erg Chigaga is 60km from the nearest town of M'Hamid and can only be reached by 4×4, which takes a few hours, or by a 2-3 day camel trek. It is designed for couples, families, or small groups who want to experience first hand what Morocco's desert has to offer.

With our comfortable mini van, 4×4 Prado Land cruiser and camels desert safari , the accommodation are carefully selected to provide comfort with possibilty to upgrade to luxury accommodations with the best local food. Leaving Marrakech at 8am, you'll be travelling toward the town of Ouarzazate passing through the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass, the highest road passage in Morocco at an altitude of 2260m. Learn about life in the desert over tea with a local Berber family, before reaching your award-winning luxurious campsite in Merzouga. I think 3 days would likely be enough as I'm thinking I would likely have to add a day before and after the trip in Marrakesh. There are specialized tours like culinary trips and eco tours but their cost may be a tad higher. After spending 30 minutes flipping our bags inside out in search for the missing key, I decided to make good use of my time and take some shots of the desert.

Tamegroute is a typical Sahara desert village in the southern part of Morocco, located 22 km from Zagora. You could try to get there early and go for a hike that same day or get there at whatever time and go hiking the following day. My wife and I recently did this a month ago through a company called Morocco Excursions.

NB you may wish to add an extra day here for hiking/trekking or even exploring by mountain bike with a guide. You must not miss the amazing experience of the Desert Safari in the proximity of gigantic sand dunes created by the wind-blown sand. We truly had some unforgettable experiences and felt that we saw and experienced a very real part of Morocco. The two day ones only go to Zagora, which hasn't looked great from any of the photos I've seen. Imagine yourself on the camel, doing the trekking activity at the Sahara Desert. The sanctuary opens for around fifteen minutes at select windows as the day progressed. Morocco Sahara Adventures is a tour operating company based in Marrackech, run by native Moroccan tourism experts.
