Overnight Camel trekking and 1 night in Merzouga

Visiting Morocco’s Sahara Desert is a must-do experience that will leave you with unforgettable memories. Imagine yourself on a camel, trekking through the soft sands of Merzouga’s Sahara Desert with nothing but the sound of the camel’s footsteps around you. During the day, the sky is clear and vast, while at night it’s filled with millions of bright stars – a peaceful experience that’s rare for most Westerners. The sand dunes’ hues depend on their chemical composition, slope inclination, and angle of sunlight incidence. The beauty of the 28 km long Erg Chebbi sand dunes draws both foreign tourists and Moroccans alike. The Oasis is the final destination for those seeking treatment for specific conditions such as rheumatism.

A camel excursion and a night in Merzouga is an unforgettable experience that allows you to enjoy the Sahara Desert in Morocco. Here is a guide of what you can expect and how to organize your trip: camel trekking and 1 night in Merzouga
