Your second country would like to welcome you!!
1 or 2 night Camel trek in the Merzouga Desert:
These trips begin in the evening. We organise the camel ride from a hotel near the sand dunes. The camels will be packed with foods, blankets and everything else which we will need. The trek will start right into the desert for an hour and a half. We will spend the night in an equipped camp with drums music in the middle of the Sahara, this is a great opportunity to take lovely pictures of the sunset and sunrise, when we arrive at the camp we walk to the high dunes to see the sunset. It will be a magical night when the sky is clear of cover and stars sparkle and shine with intensity. During the night, there will be a wonderful dinner around a campfire, and we will spend the night in nomad tents.
If you have booked a 1 night trip, the next morning we will ride the camel back to Merzouga after the sunrise, to breakfast and shower in the hotel.
If you have booked a 2 night trip, the next day in the morning after the breakfast in the camp we will ride the camels to visit and lunch with nomad peoples. After, we will ride the camels back to the camp, and leave the camels to take the sand broads and walk to the high dunes. We will visit a oasis into the dunes & walk back to the camp after the sunset. The next day in morning we will ride the camels back to Merzouga after the sunrise, to have breakfast and shower in the hotel.
Sunset And Sunrise in the Merzouga Desert:
The Sunset tour begins around 5:30pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi on top a camel. Then, we will leave the camels to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view they must climb to the top, which will take10 minutes. If you prefer not to hike up the highest dunes, the area around the camel "parking" is perfect to watch the sunset. After having enjoying that short time we travel back to the village. This tour includes a stop at the garden where you will have a short explanation about the canal system.
The Sunrise Tour starts early and takes 35 minutes to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. This tour included a visit to the garden on the way back. For this tour you don't need to set the alarm clock. Enjoy your night and we will come around for a wake-up call.

Merzouga is on the edge of Erg Chebbi, one of Morocco's two Saharan ergs – large seas of dunes formed by wind-blown sand,
The dunes of Erg Chebbi reach a height of up to 150 meters in places and altogether spans an area of 50 kilometers from north to south and up to 5-10 kilometers from east to west lining the Algerian border.
During the warmest part of the year, Moroccans come to Erg Chebbi to be buried neck-deep in the hot sand for a few minutes at a time. This is considered to be a treatment for rheumatism.
