One of the most popular things to do in Morocco is to discover the Sahara Desert on a camel and spend a night in a Berber tent under the stars. The best activity from Merzouga!
Overnight Desert Camel Trek
Climb aboard a camel and step into the endless sand dunes from Merzouga.
As you rock from side to side on top of your dromedary, experience how the Bedouin have travelled for centuries through the desert. During the one-hour journey, you will have time to take incredible photos of the sun setting over the golden coloured dunes of the Erg Chebbi.
Once you get to the desert camp, sit back while you sip on a Moroccan mint tea. Then, before you enjoy a delicious dinner, you will have time to explore the nearby dunes by foot to enjoy the striking landscape.
After sampling a filling Moroccan dinner, you'll enjoy a performance of traditional Berber drum music.
After a restful night under the star-studded desert sky, it won’t be hard to wake up at dawn to marvel at an incredible sunrise over the differently shaped sand mounds.
Then sample a healthy breakfast and have a refreshing shower before hopping on your camel to travel back to Merzouga, arriving between 8 am and 9 am.
