Moroccan Sahara Desert Tour Reviews

Beautiful desert
5 - Excellent
  • Bradley Blair
“Erg Chiggaga, serving as the gateway to the Erg Chebbi dunes, offers a truly beautiful and unique experience for travelers. I highly recommend staying at the Erg Chiggaga Activities Camp, which is conveniently located very close to the dunes. The camp provides a personalized and pleasant atmosphere at a very reasonable price. The accommodations are clean, and both breakfast and dinner are delicious. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, ensuring a welcoming experience for guests. In the evenings, they even offer music by the fire, adding to the overall ambiance. The camp can arrange various activities, including a sunset camel trip and a half-day jeep excursion around the area, making it a great choice for those looking to explore and enjoy the desert.”
Epic Desert Safari
5 - Excellent
  • Macy Craig
“This 3-day Erg Chigaga tour was nothing short of epic. The rugged 4x4 ride through the desert was exhilarating. We reached the towering Erg Chigaga dunes and watched the sun dip below the horizon while on camelback—a magical moment. The desert camp was comfortable, and the traditional dinner was delicious. This tour is an absolute must for adventurers”
A Taste of Morocco—Complete Luxury!

  • Milo Garcia
“Our journey through Morocco was an incredible experience, and I couldn't recommend this travel operator enough. Majid, who assisted us throughout the trip, was incredibly responsive and helpful. He handled all our queries about the trip logistics, and local customs with ease. Despite last-minute changes due to flight delays and lost luggage, Majid remained flexible and ensured everything ran smoothly. His coordination with Khalil, our dedicated driver and guide, was seamless, ensuring our comfort and addressing our needs promptly. Traveling across Morocco for 12 days with Khalil by our side was a joy. Not only was he a safe and skilled driver, but he also enriched our journey with insights into Arabic and Berber languages, took us to remarkable viewpoints and dining spots, and quickly became a cherished friend. Our trip was filled with numerous unforgettable moments – from exploring historic landmarks like the Hassan II mosque and Roman ruins in Volubilis to immersing ourselves in the vibrant Fes medina alongside Hakim, our amazing food tour guide. The experiences in Marrakech's Jemaa el Fna square, indulging in a traditional hammam, and the mesmerizing camel rides and stargazing in the Sahara were just some of the highlights. Khalil's adaptability to our energy levels ensured a perfect balance between engaging conversation and tranquil moments. Khalil, a heartfelt thank you! The accommodations, including the riads and hotels, were not just beautiful but also exuded warmth and hospitality, making our stay immensely enjoyable. We're definitely planning to travel with this travel operator again and will wholeheartedly recommend them to friends. And when we return to Morocco, we're eagerly hoping to work with Khalil and Ali once more.”

Travel Highlights

  • Morocco has two popular dune systems - Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga. Erg Chebbi is well-traveled and developed, while Erg Chigaga is known for its wild vista and peaceful ambiance
  • The entry point of Erg Chebbi is the village of Merzouga from where one can do the most popular Moroccan Sahara activity of camel trekking amidst the towering dunes of Erg Chebbi.
  • Erg Chigaga provides an off-the-beaten-track experience. Book a 4x4 jeep safari to reach the dune fields of Erg Chigaga.
  • Stargazing under the desert night sky comes highly recommended due to the profusion of twinkling stars in an exceptionally clear sky with no light pollution.

Travel Tips

  • Be prepared for a long driving time (at least 8-10 hours) when accessing the Moroccan Sahara, whether it is Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga.
  • The journey to the desert itself is a travel experience like no other, with ancient kasbahs, enchanting oases, and lush palmeries dotting the way.
  • The desert temperature always fluctuates, so dress in layers and carry warm clothes for chilly desert nights.
  • Sahara gets unbearably hot between the summer months of June to September, so it is best avoided.
