The real Sahara desert

60 km from M'Hamid you'll find the highest sand dunes of the desert. You cand drive with your car is you have a 4x4 one but I recomend you to take a local guide.

The camp (through sahara services) was excellent, service wonderful, food pretty good. The dunes are amazing, better than you'd ever expect.

This is the best Dunes in Morocco. We had opportunity to stay 3 nights in Chegaga and was SUPER. Very stary nights, silent desert, incredible landscape and very nice camp provide by Caravane du Sud. The camp itself its called Authentic Camp Erg Chegaga with super professional staff, food and luxury tents. We highly recommend.

Lovely, big area of Sand dunes. Our trip was organized by Mathilde from Ecolodge Bab el Oued in Agdz. She did a great job! She was very helpful with planning and did set up a great Programme for us and our 3 Children.

Watching the sunset from Erg Chigaga is an amazing experience. However, though it was the prettiest place I saw on my desert tour, it is not my favourite.

Getting to Erg Chigaga takes more effort off-roading in 4x4 but well worth the effort! The dunes are not as tall or touristy as Erg Chebbi. The dunes were pristine with wildlife tracks and the colors were much softer and muted in the hues of taupe and light beige, but still amazing! Since we’ve been to Erg Chebbi, which is... More

What is amazing about Erg Chigaga is that it is not crowded and touristic. We had an amazing drive from M'hamid to the dunes. It was just us most of the way except for 3 cars that we saw heading back to the town. We did see a lot more on our return. The dunes are amazing. I loved soaking... More
