The Sahara is the largest hot air desert the world and it is a must place to visit while inMorocco. You will never forget the experience of spending a night in the Sahara desert.
Our tour started in Fes because we came from Chefchaouen, the blue city. The tour is also available from Marrakech as a return. Be prepared for a lot of driving but the sceneries and sights you will visit will make it up to you. Or directly read more about how to pick a Sahara Desert Tour.
From Fes, we left around 8 AM and the driver took us to Merzouga that day. Merzouga is the city that is located at the beginning of the Sahara. On our way, we’ve stopped several times.
The next morning you will be awakened very early to get out, hop on a camel and get to the top of a dune. Once on the top, the sun will rise from the horizon, temperatures rise quickly and all the dunes get these beautiful soft orange color.
