Merzouga Sahara Desert Day Trip Itinerary

After collecting you bright and early from your hotel, you will leave the city behind and drive into the endless fields of sand dunes.

The first stop will be to visit the nomad villages, which are usually moved from one place to another in the Erg Chebbi dunes. While you drink some tea with them, they will explain their traditions and way of life.

The first stop of the excursion is Khamlia, a small village on the edge of the desert, where the Gnawa ethnic group live. The Gnawa are originally from Central Africa, descents from the African slaves brought to Morocco.

After visiting the village, discover why Gnawa music is internationally recognized by assisting a wonderful performance. The soulful tunes blend classical Islamic music and African beats!

Finally, after admiring a breathtaking sunset in the desert, you will head back to your hotel in Merzouga.
