So, the dunes of Merzouga are welcoming you!
In a temperature of 25 degrees by day and 13 by night in October, the dunes of Merzouga, where the sun is shining and the wethear is sweat, also called "Erg Chebbi" or, "the pride of Merzouga" will blow your mind with the sunrise, heal your heart with the sunset and confort your soul with the fantastic landscapes of golden sand, clear sky and shining stars!
Yes!! This is real!
In the middle of Sahara desert, next to Merzouga village, where we can have tea with nomades, meet musicians of south Morocco,
the dunes may offer you attractions during the day like Camel rides, quads, wild life, and a nature going out from fairytale, some dunes are 150m high.
Its a treasure place for every Lightpainter, from the moment he will arrive to the golden dunes, there will be no light pollution. Just silence and sand!
Brief Meet-up plan is:
Fees on locations:
Transport from Errachidia airport to the Auberge in the dunes: 1000dh by Jeep (90€)
