Sahara travel guide

Sahara travel guide

The Experience Of A Lifetime

The Sahara is more ethereal than material; you truly get the impression that you are in another world when you are there. If the hike up the dunes doesn’t make you gasp, the sights from the top will, It is easy to think you are seeing an optical illusion when you watch sand dunes move and reform in the desert air and when you look at the entire desert floor moving and rippling.

Entrances Into The Sahara

The Moroccan Sahara is vast and extensive, inhospitable and inaccessible in areas. However within reach of Marrakech, three southern locations are known gateways into the Sahara and all three locations offer you unique journeys, desert experiences and the very best of photographic opportunities, throughout your journey and stay.

Should you be unfamiliar with Morocco’s Desert Region, as Liz was when she first visited Morocco, we hope to clarify for you, the three different Dune Areas Mor’hara travels to and their geographical location. From Marrakech head South, then South East at Ouarzazate through the Dades Valley, to reach the Chebbi Dunes.

Zagora The Entrance To Erg Chigaga Via The Draa Valley:

Agdz is Your Tour Morocco’s hometown is located between Ouarzazate and Zagora, 67 km away from Ouarzazate,a small town with an amazing view of the oasis palms in the Draa valley, The Draa is an extraordinary natural wonder, a two hundred km long valley stretching just south of Ouarzazate to Zagora, consisting of vast date palm groves as far as your eye can see, great rivers and irrigation streams, sandcastle architecture and red earth fortified villages and Kasbahs.

Timbuktu 52 Days

Historically Zagora was a strategic trading post for the camel caravans crossing the Sahara, famously indicated by a weather-beaten sign depicting a camel and a nomad in a faded indigo turban, above which is the legendary statement ‘Timbuktu 52 Days’, on foot or by a camel that is!

M’hamid Entrance To Erg Chigaga Via The Draa Valley

Ontinuing south from Zagora toward the oasis village of M’hamid will bring you literally to a halt, for M’hamid is located at the ‘end of the road’ and known as the last southerly outpost in this region, prior to entering the Sahara, beyond stretches 4,800 kilometres of desert. A lunar rock landscape, hauntingly beautiful, lies beyond M’hamid and thereafter spectacular sands come into view, the magnificent, towering and extraordinary Erg Chigaga, only accessible by 4×4 and by camel.

Merzouga, Entrance To Erg Chebbi Via The Dades Valley

To arrive at Merzouga a small village located south east of Ouarzazate, is to have journeyed through a valley of picturesque Berber villages, a valley of Kasbahs, the magnificent Dades and Todra Gorges and Valley of Roses.

To finally to find yourself at the edge of the great Erg Chebbi dunes.
