When visiting Morocco, make time for a trip to the Sahara Desert. The Sahara’s beauty is matchless. It is a special place where time stands still, and watching the sun descend behind the massive, wind-sculpted dunes conveys a sense of peace and tranquillity.
Spending a night in the Sahara is about campfires, starry skies, and the oldest way of transport – on a camel.
How to Get There
You can get to the Sahara from either Fes or Marrakesh, driving through the Middle Atlas or High Atlas Mountains on winding roads and passing through small Berber villages. It is an 8-hour drive from Fes and an
11-hour drive from Marrakesh. There are many places to stop along the way, either for lunch or for an overnight. The people in the villages are more traditional both in their dress and their way of life. Their clothes are full and long and protect them against the environment. Their native language is a Berber dialect.
Upon arrival in Merzouga, you can either spend the night in an auberge or go directly to the desert, either by camel, 4-wheel drive, or quad. Once in your luxury camp, you will enjoy a Moroccan tagine for dinner and can listen to Berber music.
A Trip for the Adventurous
Traveling to the Sahara is different from the other excursions you will take in Morocco, and once you experience the Sahara, you will want to go back again. Contact S & J Tours in New York and Marrakesh to set up this Morocco Desert Tour New York for you.
