It was amazing to explore the desert from the dunes, to the black sand. There are nomad camps, abandoned military camps. The views are mazing. It is a must see if you are in morocco. But don't make your way to algeria! 50 km away.

Sunset over the Sahara, dinner in a dining tent, a night under the stars, awakened to the sunrise. Peaceful, surreal, transcendent. The highlight of our trip!

The night I spent under the full moon, in the Merzouga Desert, is one of the most energetically powerful nights of my life. The desert is more beautiful than I could have imagined. Such an incredible place to spend a bit of time!

Visiting the erg at Merzouga was a highlight of our trip to Morocco. We toured down from Marrakech and the travelling was worth it, watching the sunset over the dunes was spectacular, as was the camel ride. An absolute must.
