  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Erg Chebbi is a Saharan Erg or "Sand Sea", made from wind-swept, rolling sand dunes approximately 25km's by 10km's in size. The ever-changing dunes reach an estimated height of 300m. The closest town to this popular spot is Merzouga, which is roughly a 9-10 hour drive from either Marrakech or Fes. It is very close to the Algerian border.

    This is a very popular area for overnight camel and 4x4 treks. There are also many hotels and guesthouses in the immediate area that offer lodgings, food and excursions onto the dunes with guides. The erg is most visibly impressive around dawn and dusk when its color can shift from golden to orange to pink within a short period of time.

      • Merzouga
        Merzouga is a small village in south-eastern Morocco. It is located right on the edge of a large Saharan erg (sand sea) named Erg Chebbi. Merzouga is about 35km's from Rissani and a paved road now connects it to the rest of Morocco. It is approximately 50km's from the Algerian border.

        There are many hotels, guesthouses and guide services popping up in the area, as it is a very popular base for travelers wanting to venture out onto the dunes via camel or 4x4 for day, or overnight excursions. There is also a lake in the area which is sometimes frequented by pink flamingos.

        • Awesome, stunning, beautiful. We went on a 3-day trip from Marrakesh that included a Camel-ride 3 hours into the red sand dunes of Erg Chebbi and an overnight-stay in a Berber tent camp with food, campfire, djembre drumming session and lesson, and an amazing nightwalk through the dunes. Glowing red, fine and clean sand, sunset, sunrise, night-sky full of stars... an unforgettable experience!.
        • Have been on my bucket list to visit the desert and stay the night. Definitely wouldn't miss stargazing late at night and watching the sun rise. Can't forget the sunset camel ride across the done. I'll definitely do this again if given the option. What an adventure! We stayed at a luxury tent which I recommend as there was hot water and washroom available for everyone's convenience. It's also quite chilly in the desert at night (we went in December) so make sure to bring enough layer of clothing. Don't forget to wake up early for the amazing sunrise (sun rises around 7 ish and sets around 5:30 ish).
        • Fantastic view , it is worth to climb on a biggest dune ,but its not an easy task :-)
        • Nice place! Do not miss the sunset on top of the dunes
        • My lands and favorite place on the earth. .here we walk we song we dance we share the great love of Desert
