Let’s enjoy the beautiful view of the Sunrise & sunset in Merzouga with the soft rhythm of the dromedaries, the sunset glides over the dunes of the Sahara. You’ll lose yourself in the pink gold that melts sky and sand. Until the arrival at the high sand dune in the heart of the Moroccan Erg Chebbi where we’ll stop to watch an amazing view of the sunset or sunrise, or both if you have enough time in the desert.
EXPERIENCE THE SAHARA DESERT DURING SUNSET AND SUNRISE
Riding a camel at sunrise and sunset in Merzouga desert is the highlight of Merzouga activities. A tour in Morocco is not complete without a camel ride in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. For those who have been mesmerized by the caravans that have crossed the African deserts between legendary cities carrying products such as salt, this is the opportunity to feel like a local nomad for a few moments.
It is a worthwhile desert journey and you will have fond unforgettable memories. Imagine you are walking in the Sahara desert with your camel caravan. There is nothing around and you can hear the camel’s footsteps on the soft sand. The sky is vast and clear by day and at night filled with millions of bright stars. It is a very peaceful experience, rarely known by most of the Western world.
The Merzouga Sunrise tour starts early in the morning. It takes about half an hour to reach the Erg Chebbi sand dunes by camels. You’ll have the opportunity to ride the camels in the early morning and enjoy the silence of the desert before sunrise.
You can climb to the top of the dune where you can see an amazing view of the oranges sand dunes of Erg-Chebbi.
After spending an amazing time in the desert we’ll ride the camels back to Merzouga village.
The Merzouga Sunset tour starts at least one hour before sunset. It takes about half an hour to reach the Erg Chebbi Dunes by camels. For those who want to see a panoramic view, they have to climb to the top. It will take another 10 minutes to reach the summit.
If you prefer not to climb the highest dunes, the area around the “camel’s parking ” is perfect for watching the sunset. After enjoying the sunset, return to the village before sunset.
