Merzouga Desert (Morocco)

Posted by maggypol on March 23, 2011

I'm just back, again, from Morocco, and my heart has once again been captured by the beauty of this land.

As we did in September, we arranged travel with Nourdine of nomadexperience and again, he didn't let us down.
This time we visited Marakech, Ouarzazate and - the best part - down into the desert, to Merzouga, the dunes, camel ride (what an adventure!) and a night under the stars in a real berber tent. We thought we had learned what Morocco means, in our first time there, but we found there is a lot more to be seen.

Spending night in Sahara desert is one of the best sights. One must experience this in his/her lifetime. The best moment is when you see sun rise and sunset in the sand dunes. If you can, then you must experience this once in lifetime.

My wife and I have recently returned from our first trip to magical Morocco! I had spent hours on trip advisor reading reviews and looking at images but none of them prepared me for just how diverse and captivating this incredible country is. We arrived in Fes but unfortunatley due to time restrictions we only had 1 night there. It was really just a launching pad for our trip into Southeast Morocco, it was really awesome experience for both of us.

I totally agree. No picture and no description that even less to describe how incredible it is actually the view. I went last year there and in the near future I intend to repeat this trip. The whole view of sand and sun that shines in it is memorable. A sunset and sunrise are amazing!

Hello Everybody,

I agree with you, i went the first time to merzouga to celebrate the Christmas in 1999 and we've been there more than 16 persons. We arrived to our destination during the night and we didn't expect what will be the surprise the day after during the day when you open the tent to see this awesome and amazing view. The best experience i had as moroccan in my country. We decide to stay there to celebrate the HAPPY NEW YEAR and we were really excited by this experience.

What i want to say that Morocco has another awesome place, It s called DAKHLA in Atlantic Ocean, it s a new paradise, virgin for the moment.
