Sands of Merzouga: A 2-Day Odyssey into Sahara’s Heart

Embark on an immersive 2-day Merzouga Dunes Tour, departing from Ouarzazate. This isn’t just a mere excursion; it’s an authentic desert experience, where you’ll traverse the captivating landscapes of the Sahara, ride camels, and spend a night in a traditional Berber nomadic camp beneath the starlit skies.


Day 1: Ouarzazate - Skoura Oasis - Kelaat M'gouna – Boumalne - Todra Gorges - Merzouga

Journey through the Rose Capital, Kalaat M’gouna, and the Boumalne Dades valley, reaching the dramatic Todra Gorges. A short walk unveils the canyon’s wonders, followed by lunch. Venture to Erfoud, exploring the marble and fossil craftsmanship. Conclude the day exchanging 4×4 for camels in Merzouga, riding into the sunset to a nomadic tent in the dunes. Dinner and a night under the Sahara stars await.

Day 2: Merzouga – Rissani – Alnif – Tazarine - Draa Valley – Agdez - Ouarzazate
