Marrakech to Merzouga desert 3 days and 2 night with camel trekking. Merzouga is a small town out on the edge of the Sahara Desert of Erg Chebbi. Merzouga is only 20 km away from Algeria border where the paved road ends and the real Sahara Desert sand dunes begins. Merzouga desert is the most commun point of Morocco Camel treks and Bivouacs. To experience the Sahara desert dunes it is a must to take a camel trip and stay overnight in a Berber tent or in a luxury camp. The camel trip take approximately 1 hours 30 minutes through amazing red-orange sand dunes at sunset to reach the desert camp where you will be served local nomad dinner in the desert tent. But note it is at least a ten hours drive from the erg chebbi dunes to Marrakech. The trip is possible in 3 days however we recommend a slow pace over 4 or 5 days.
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.
