Sahara desert in Morocco is a unique experience. I can guarantee, you will not forget the visit of the largest desert in the world!
1 day & 1 night trip in Sahara desert in Morocco:
- Camel tour starts from Merzouga, the town in heart of Sahara desert. The ride on camels takes around 1 hour and you will stop close to tents
- You will climb (quite difficult!) to the highest dune for an amazing sunset
- Berbers (locals in Sahara desert), dinner, music, nice conversation with other travelers will for sure make you smile 🙂
- You will sleep in the tent with others or private tents are also available. You will sleep approximately 25 kilometers from borders of Algeria
- Early morning Berbers will wake up you for an amazing sunrise. I can not decide what is more beautiful: sunset or sunrise in Sahara desert!
- After sunrise you will go back on camels to Merzouga, the town in Sahara desert in Morocco
12 things they surprised me in Sahara desert in Morocco
- How hot was in the tent during night! In the morning it was cooler, around 15 degrees. Dress properly for day & night in Sahara desert
- Big portions of the meals: Moroccan salad, Tagine (typical Moroccan dish) & dessert: Moroccan sliced oranges with Cinnamon. Yummy!
- I was scared of sacred beetles as they were flying around a lot and loving my leggings
- Camels do not smell as you might expect, really!
- During our Sahara Tour we experienced really strong wind especially during the sunset. But next day we had completely different Sahara desert in front of us with huge dunes! What an incredible view
- Did you know that camel’s one leg Berbers bandage to avoid moving from the place? Camels waited for us in oasis until morning. When I saw bandage I was so sorry for them!
- Who spends a whole day in Sahara desert, laughs a lot in the evening. True store, try it!
- Sahara desert is so quite & peaceful. We could hear the sound of the wind, nobody was there! Amazing 🙂
- Unfortunately, we did not have luck for stars in Sahara desert due to full moon. Next time will be another choice! 🙂
- Did you know that you are not allowed to pass countries in North Africa through Sahara desert?
- In our Riad (called a Guesthouse in Morocco) we had a pool! What a contrast in desert
- The high season in Morocco is August even if temperature is really high. Most of the tourists come when there is 58 degrees! Early May, off season, we had around 40 degrees; it was too hot & sunny, quite enough! I can barely imagine myself in August in Sahara desert, and you? 🙂
