The Best Let's Go


DESERT TRIP FROM MARRAKECH: to Erg Chigaga Sahara dunes are a much younger and less-frequented destination. Erg chegaga dunes are in the southeast of Marrakech, towards the Algerian border and they’re located over 60 kilometers away from the nearest town Mhamid.

The desert is in some ways bigger and wilder here. Those who choose to visit the Erg Chigaga desert should expect a rustic experience, without access to nearby hotels. This desert tour requires at least 3 days of traveling through Ait Benhaddou, the palm trees of the Draa valley and a rocky desert landscape before reaching the dunes of the Sahara.

The visit of the Erg Chigaga desert is fascinating, the trip in the Sahara desert which offers you the possibility to ride camels, climb the dunes of the Sahara. Stroll through the crystalline sand grains through your fingertips, enjoy the panoramic views and sleep in tents or under the stars.
