We then visit the Qoran library and small underground streets before continuing along a most beautiful route to Mhamid village, the last village before the expanse of the Sahara opens before us. Here we will travel along a sandy road famous owing to its links with the Paris-Dakar Rally which pass through here too.
We have lunch of a selection of meats and salad, seasonal fruits, and tea before you try your hand at dune walking and sand boarding. Next we head back to your 4X4 to travel to the desert location, Erg Lihoudi, where we will spend the night under the stars in a traditional tent. You will relish the amazing sunset over the huge dunes here before settling around the fire for a traditional dinner, songs and musical entertainment.

Best Seller 3 Days 2 Night to Chegaga From Marrakech on 2024
The driver Ibrahim was a ton of fun as were our local guides, particularly Zaid at the camel Safari. Multiple stops on the way there gave us spectacular views of the Moroccan mountains, desert, and canyons. The Desert camping was very glamorous and the camel ride wasn't excessively long (long camel rides are rather uncomfortable, not the case here.) Live music at the camp with sinks and bathrooms but don't expect showers in the dune camp. You can take them in Merzouga if you need but you don't get sweaty or gross in the desert so I passed for a day.
Amazing price for an amazing experience. There are no words to describe the sky full of stars in the middle of the desert, or the multilingual guides we had all along the way!
There was lots packed into this three day adventure. Be prepared for long days of travel. Our tour guide and van driver, Ayoeb, was fantastic and checked in with each of us to make sure we were taken care of.
