Erg Chebbi Merzouga desert tour 3 days 2 nights
About 600 km from Marrakesh, after the pass of Tizi n'Tichka, the exceptionally still and serene valleys, you will find Ouarzazate. This tranquil city marks the commencement of the deep south. This is the escape route, northbound between aromatic valleys and gorges where rivers weave their way through beautiful oases. Merzouga appears 50km from Erfoud in the heart of Tafilalet at the foot of the grand dune of Erg Chebbi. The village, which appears to be sunken into the dunes, is the starting point of the camel treks and night bivouacs. Here, one can enjoy the rhythmic music of the nomads, and see an incredibly splendid landscape where impressive sunsets will create everlasting memories. A little further, the pre-Saharan oases and the splendid valley of Drâa return us discreetly to the heart of Berber villages between the palmeries and Kasbahs. You will see an amazing contrast of colors emblematic of South Morocco.
