Trip Info

Explore the Moroccan desert and culture on this four to seven day desert tour. Erg Chebbi is a dune field about 22 km from north to south and about 5 km from east to west, at the widest point. The highest dune, at 884 meter, is in the north.

Among the dunes, there are several oasis and you can easily get water just by digging a little. The trip to the oasis starts with a long route by road which is an experience itself, geographically speaking. With the numerous stops to cool down, enjoy getting in contact with the local people and visit some of the best places in Morocco.

Zagora, the Gate to the Sahara, is the last town before one reaches the heart of the Sahara Dunes of Tinfou and Erg Chegaga Dunes. One of the tourist attractions of Zagora is the sign that points Timbuktu 52 days. This is the time taken by the old camel caravans transporting salt, tea, dates, Hannah and other dry goods between these two trading spots.
