Located south of the large palm grove of Tafilalet, erg Chebbi, stretching for almost 30 km along the Hamada du Guir, bordering Algeria, represents this state of mind during your Morocco desert tours:

  • A search for calm and serenity, unfortunately too often parasitized by the roars of 4 × 4 and other quads, coming to disturb this magic.

  • A subtle and particular ecosystem governs the life of the erg and maintains the formation of its dunes whose color changes following the path of the sun.

  • Indeed, the humidity accumulated at a great depth allows the dunes to settle down and perpetuate themselves; some reach 150 m in height.

Stay at the dunes of Merzouga

The numerous inns are scattered along the dunes of Merzouga. They offer camel excursions within Erg Chebbi to make you enjoy your Morocco desert tours.

It is absolutely worth getting up early in the morning to watch the sunrise, colors constantly in motion seeming to glisten on the golden sand.

Then taking advantage of the relative morning freshness and enjoy your Morocco desert tours by starting a walk in the dunes or on the reg whose black rock garden which can seem monotonous is not less sublime.

This kind of morning getaway can lead to the small palm grove of Hassi Labied or to the village of Merzouga. A unique opportunity, however, to meet the population, always welcoming, of the villages bordering the erg on its west side. a wonderful place to visit during your Morocco desert tours.

The time and energy released are really worth it, because it is, moreover, always possible to discover in these short hikes beautiful black stones possibly fossilized, rejected on the surface of the reg.

However, slaves, fabrics and other goods coming from the current Sudan and the south Sahara passed through and were exchanged; which made its wealth and its loss, because it was totally destroyed in 1818 by the Aït Atta tribes.

The village of Merzouga

The village of Merzouga, itself, is not of great interest. Only a couple of shops and cafes, the post office, surround the square where large taxis and buses arrive from Rissani or Erfoud. Generally, inns offer in their services to come and welcome you there to take you to this little paradise.
