Morocco Travel Tips - SAHARA CAMP

FAQs - SAHARA CAMP

As mentioned in the above paragraph ‘ERG CHIGAGA VS ERG CHEBBI’ there are two main sites where visitors can enjoy a night out in the dunes in Morocco: Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga. The tarmac road stops a few kilometers before in Merzouga and M’hamid respectively. The desert camps there belong to guest houses mostly located in these two locations. In general, when reaching the guest house in Merzouga or M’hamid, you will get the chance to freshen up/ have a shower and/ or leave some of the luggage there, if you are using the basic camp ( Dreamers). From there, you will continue the trip to the desert camp by camel. With Privilege and Divine, the shower and toilets are en- suite. In the case of Erg Chigaga, the dunes are a 2 hours’ drive away from Mhamid. The dunes at Erg Lihoudi, next to Mhamid are easier to reach and make for a good alternative should you not have the time to reach Erg Chigaga.
