Merzouga Experience Tours and Camel Trekking and Toyota land cruiser
MOROCCO EXCURSION – CAMEL TREK IN DESERT
The camel is the only mode of transport here in the desert. When we arrive at the dunes, the 4×4 Land Cruiser will be left behind in the area where you will depart on your camel trek, along with the camel men, who will be assisting you on your journey through the desert.
This excursion can take place anytime during the day. Early morning departures; to admire a beautiful sunrise seen from dune crests, visit the nomad’s tents and observe their “free-spirited” lifestyle! Perhaps, an afternoon trek for those who wish to take in a breathtaking sunset and then, to pass the night sleeping in a Berber tent in the bivouacs, amidst the sandy dunes.
Alternatively, we can arrange a camel ride for more than one day. Starting from one Berber village near the erg ie; Merzouga or Hassi Labied.
During the evening, camping in the desert bivouacs, you will witness live music performed by the indigenous people of these areas. Be enchanted by their animated performances, rhythmic, and filled with songs reflecting their life.

SUNSET TOUR CAMEL RIDE
The Sunset tour begins around 5:30 pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi on top of a camel. Then, we will leave the camels in about 80 meters to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view they must climb to the top, it will take them another 10 minutes. If you prefer not to hike up the highest dunes, the area around the camel “parking” is perfect to watch the sunset. After having to enjoy that short time we travel back to the village.
