2018-02-10 By Marrakech Desert Trips
If you want to enjoy Morocco Sahara desert tour and spend a good time, then Marrakesh desert trips will be your best choice. For many tourists, time and cost are the major factors that determine the direction they should take, whether to Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga.
With many desert camps and hostels, Erg Chebbi is a well-developed place and a tour of this beautiful desert can be conducted in 3 days – 2 nights (minimum). Erg Chebbi desert has a special charm due to its unique landscapes, historical sites and huge dunes (may up to 300 m). During the trip, you can visit many interesting places such as the Valley of the roses, Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, the road of the Kasbah, Todgha Gorges, and Dades Valley. After reaching your Sahara desert camp, you will enjoy many adventures such as camel trek and you will definitely spend an amazing time.
It’s a very popular tour, so you can easily find a shared desert tour departing Marrakech to Merzouga in 3 days.
Located in the south-east of Marrakech, a trip to Erg Chigaga desert can be done in 4 days – 3 nights (minimum).Many tourists conduct that tour in order to explore the Draa valley to enjoy wonderful picturesque and charming scenery. With its fabulous palm groves and charming landscapes, the Draa valley is considered one of the most attractive tourist hot spot of the Moroccan Sahara desert. In this trip, a 4X4 is very necessary to reach your Sahara desert camp, because the paved road ends in M’hamid, which located at the south of Zagora. So that, it will be better to arrange a private tour in 4X4 and that will surely cost more money, but this incredible experience worth; as you will get a great feeling of relaxing by watching fabulous sand dunes, rocky plateaus, and magnificent palm groves.
On your way back to Marrakesh, remember to follow the Paris – Dakar Rally track via the dried Iriki Lake to Foum Zguid, where fossils and meteorites are often collected.
