Taking a three day desert tour to Erg chebbi dunes in Merzouga , means sitting in the car for ten hours on the days last day from Merzouga to Marrakech. We therefore recommend a minimum of 4 days for a Desert Tour from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi to break the journey each way and have time to see the sites along the route.The 4 and 5 Days Sahara Desert Tour to Erg Chebbi dunes and back to Marrakech are highly recommended simply because there are so many things to see and do besides camel trekking and a night stay in a deep Sahara desert camp. Arriving early to the hotel at the foot hills of Erg Chebbi dunes, enjoy a cup of tea, see some nomads living in caves, wander with a local guide in palmary or hike in Dades valley or Todra gorges, spend more time of sites...Etc
Airport to Airport Trip:
We believe that the charterers' holiday should begin and end at the airport and that the transfer can be turned into a pleasant advantage. No matter how many people in the group, we provide comfortable, air-conditioned modern vehicles to transport them.
Taking a 3 days desert tour to Merzouga is definitely very delightful but combining your tour with a stay in a Traditional Riad and a sightseeing day tour either before or after your Desert Tour will make it a perfect holiday.
