Itinerary of the 3 Days Tour from Errachidia

First Day: Get to Errachidia and Merzouga

This is the first day of your 3-day tour of the Merzouga Desert. We pick you up at the airport. Next, go south to reach Merzouga in the Sahara Desert. Have dinner and stay the night in Merzouga.

Second day: a tour of the Merzouga Desert

We will spend the day exploring the Merzouga area after breakfast. The area has a lot of amazing sights, like sand dunes, a wild lake, caves, fossil areas, and beautiful beaches. Where you can do a lot of fun things outside. 

First, we start our trip in Merzouga by going off-road to see an old eyeliner mine. After that, we go see the gypsies in their hand-woven tent. While you drink your Berber tea, learn about how they live. The next stop on our trip is Khamlia town, where you can enjoy Gnaoua music and dance shows. The people who live there are from sub-Saharan Africa, mostly Mali, Sudan, and Niger. Some free time to eat lunch somewhere. After that, we go for a walk in the grove of palm trees. When you’re ready, take a short drive to see Merzouga Lake, which is also known as Flamingo Lake.

Afternoon: You ride camels across the sandy desert, stopping on top of a high hill to watch the sunset along the way. Then you keep going to the fancy camp. You can dance around the campfire to the music of the Berber drums while looking up at the clear night sky. Dinner and a night at the camp.

Great trip via the desert

Wonderful tour company. Our driver, Hicham, was neat, knew a lot, and gave us great advice. The places that were included were also very good.  The camel ride through the desert was fun, and the weather was great.
