Beautiful pristine massive sand dunes in pure silence. What could be better? This was our favourite experience in Morocco. Climb the dunes for insanely awesome photo opportunities! Without hesitation I would recommend this activity. Camels are sweet.

Visiting the desert of Merzouga and sleep overnight is one the best experiences I have ever had. The trip from Marrakech is long, 9 hours driving aprox. There is nothing else than sand dunes, so staying at the camp in the middle of the desert...More
