About Merzouga

Located in the southeast of Morocco, affected by both European and African culture, Merzouga is a small settlement located 55 km far from Erfoud, 35 km southeast of Rissani and 50 km from the Algerian border. Merzouga, located very close to the Erg Chebbi sand dunes, is one of the essential stops of desert safari tours covering more than one town of Morocco. Merzouga can be visited in one day, and you can also travel to the nearby villages from Merzouga, which are Tanamoust, Takoujt, Khamlia and Tisserdmin. There are not too many accommodation facilities in the village due to the fact that those who come with the Sahara Desert safari tours in Merzouga often choose to stay in camping tents.

Merzouga, perhaps the most popular one among the Berberi villages that remained the same for thousands of years without a change in Morocco, is a place where you can see the view of unique sand dunes of different beauty each day and night of the year. You can take a stroll through the desert with the camels at sunset and visit the nearby villages.

You can cross the dunes with camel safaris, go to your tent after hours of travel, and have a rest by sipping your foamy mint tea. Merzouga, which has a unique beauty at night, offers breathtaking views thanks to sand dunes and luminous desert stars. Whether you visit Merzouga with tours or day trips, you can be sure that you will easily find an affordable Berber tent or hotel / hostel for your stay.

Watching the Sahara Desert, which offers a view to be imprinted on the memories, will be a priceless experience.

Those, who wish to observe and experience the wildlife, and those especially interested in bird watching, can take a daily trip in certain areas of Merzouga.
