Plan for the two-day trip from Errachidia

DAY 1: From Errachidia to Merzouga, a 135 km trip Two hours

Your driver from Morocco Sahara Trips will pick you up at your hotel in Errachidia at 8:00 a.m. today to begin your two-day tour from Errachidia to Merzouga. Along the way, you will stop to take in the view of Ziz Valley, which is the second-longest and one of the most beautiful valleys in Morocco.

As you continue your trip to the Erg Chebbi dunes, you will pass by the towns of Aoufous and Erfoud. Erfoud is famous for its fossils, and there is a fair every year where you can visit a local fossil craft workshop. After that, you’ll keep going to the beautiful Erg Chebbi Dunes, which are also known as Merzouga Dunes.

Once you get to the hotel, you’ll have an hour and a half to ride a camel and watch the sunset. If you’d like, you can try sandboarding, take pictures, and enjoy the views. As the sun goes down, your camel ride continues to the camp, where you will be greeted with a drink of mint tea and a tasty meal. You can listen to the Berber dancing music and enjoy a night at the desert camp.

Day 2: Erg Chebbi Dunes to Errachidia. This trip is 135 km long. Two hours

The next morning, you should get up early to watch the sunrise from a dune close to the camp in the Sahara Desert. After breakfast and a shower at the camp, you should go back to the dunes to watch the sunrise again. Once these beautiful times are over, you can either ride your camel back to where you started or take a 4WD to get back.

After some time, you’ll meet your driver and start your 2-day Errachidia desert tour. To continue on our way to Errachidia from Merzouga, we will stop at the traditional weekly market of Rissani if it is one of those days (Sunday, Tuesday, or Thursday). Along the way, we will also stop for pictures, scenic views, and lunch.

What our clients say about our service

An amazing trip through Morocco

From Errachidia to Merzouga, our two-day trip was amazing. We made some great stops along the way and stayed the night in the Sahara desert. Hassan was our tour guide. He knew a lot about Morocco, was nice, and showed us the best parts of the country.

Lim J
best tour ever!!

We couldn't have asked for a better time. If you decide to book this, make sure Omar is your driver. He knows a lot about Morocco and is funny, which made for a great road trip. We learned a lot about the Berber culture out in the Sahara desert, stayed in great hotels, and ate a lot of delicious food. Omar, you were great!
