info about desert tours Merzouga Desert Or Zagora
➡️ Zagora Desert
Zagora Desert Trips. The Zagora Desert is the one we find closest to Marrakech, it is located about 350 km (a journey of about 6 hours with stops included). This makes this desert ideal for people who have little time (this excursion can be done in 2 days and 1 night). Totally recommended for those who do not want to miss the experience sleeping in the desert, taking a ride on a dromedary and sleeping in the haimas camp. It should be borne in mind that this desert is much more arid and rocky, with less spectacular dunes than Merzouga, but it is not without its charm and great beauty. It is not possible to make this excursion in a single day, therefore it is necessary to spend the night.
➡️ Merzouga Desert Erg chebbi
The Merzouga Desert or Erg Chebbi is located about 570 km from Marrakech, this desert is made up of large sand dunes (they can reach 150 meters high) it is the most impressive part of the Moroccan Desert. They are the dunes that we see in all the advertising claims of the Moroccan desert. To get to Merzouga from Marrakech it is necessary at least 3 days and 2 nights, although we always recommend if you have time to do it in 4 days and 3 nights, since the return day is 570 km of the pull, almost 9 hours of travel and it gets very tired. But knowing this, each traveler is a world, there are those who want to see a lot in a short time to take advantage of their stay, there are those who want to enjoy the surroundings and its landscapes and take the trip more slowly. If you are traveling with children to the desert in Morocco, I recommend taking the 4-day route to shorten distances and km by car, and that the journey is not so heavy, especially if they are small (0 to 6 years old) .
