2 Days from Errachidia to Merzouga

Embark on a 2-day journey from Errachidia to the captivating dunes of Merzouga, an ideal short trip for those looking to experience the essence of the Sahara Desert. This brief but memorable tour highlights the dramatic landscapes and cultural richness of this region. Here’s your guide to a compact adventure in the heart of the Moroccan desert.

Day 1: Errachidia to Merzouga – Entering the Sahara

Start your journey in Errachidia, a city known as the gateway to the Sahara. This region is characterized by its stark beauty and Berber culture. From Errachidia, travel to the town of Merzouga, situated near the impressive Erg Chebbi dunes. These dunes are the highest in Morocco and offer a stunning introduction to the Sahara.

Upon arrival in Merzouga, prepare for a camel trek into the desert. This traditional mode of travel provides an authentic Sahara experience and allows you to appreciate the vastness and tranquility of the desert landscape. As the sun sets, watch the dunes change color under the fading light – a truly magical sight.

Spend the night in a desert camp, enjoying traditional Berber hospitality. Experience a night under the Saharan sky, often filled with stars, and enjoy a campfire dinner accompanied by local music.

Day 2: Merzouga and Surrounding Areas – Desert Exploration

Wake up early to catch the sunrise over the dunes – a serene and unforgettable moment. After breakfast, explore the area around Merzouga. Options include visiting the nearby village of Khamlia, known for its Gnawa music, a rhythmic and hypnotic form of music brought to Morocco by West African slaves. You might also explore the fossil beds or take a 4×4 excursion to see the nomadic families living in this harsh but beautiful landscape.

In the afternoon, begin your journey back to Errachidia. This return trip allows for reflection on the unique experiences and sights of the Sahara. The contrast between the desert and the city marks the end of this short but enriching desert adventure.

This 2-day journey from Errachidia to Merzouga offers a taste of the Sahara’s stunning natural beauty and cultural heritage. It’s an ideal trip for those seeking a brief but immersive desert experience in one of the most enchanting landscapes on Earth.
