Desert Tours: 4×4 trips in Morocco, night in tents...

There are many various ways to explore the Sahara, and Vacations In Morocco offers desert tours both from Marrakech and as part of longer tours of the entire nation. We plan camel rides, rent out buggies, and plan itineraries and trips around Morocco and the desert. There are many ways to live intensely in one of the most unique places on earth. In the following paragraphs, we outline some of our top recommendations for your Moroccan desert tour.

Morocco desert tours in 4×4

Our 4×4 Desert tours in Morocco are only one of the experiences we offer you at our travel agency. This all-terrain vehicle is excellently maintained and is being driven by our driver, who is also a native and is very familiar with every part of the desert, making it the most comfortable way to cross the Sahara. And instead of passing through haphazard landscapes, we’ll take the most fascinating ones, like the roads frequently used in the storied Paris-Dakar rally.

Buggy and quad rentals in our desert tours

Using buggies or quads is another really unique way to feel the speed in the Moroccan desert, in addition to our 4×4 desert tours. To personally experience the sensation of driving on the dunes of Erg Chebbi, you can rent motorbikes, quads, and buggies through Vacations in Morocco. This exclusive buggy and quad rental service is available to you in the Merzouga desert.

Excursions and camel rides in the desert tours

One of the top draws for people who plan desert tours from Marrakech is riding a camel in the Sahara. Traveling to this nation is the ideal way to live this ancient and symbolic pleasure of riding majestic and beautiful animals. Always escorted by trained handlers who will lead us across the dunes, such as those of Erg Chebbi, and always with one dromedary per person.

Enjoy the sunset and sunrise in the middle of the desert.

Dromedary rides are a unique experience in and of themselves, but they are also the only way to go to another intriguing pastime in the middle of the desert: watching the sunset and the starry sky. Only from a location like this, free from the hindrances of artificial lighting, building structures, or geographical factors, can you truly appreciate the splendor and spectacularity of the sky.

A night in a tent under the stars

In Merzouga, you can even spend the night in a Berber tent as an alternative to stargazing. This lodging choice is included on a lot of our national trips, but we can also include it on our desert tours departing from Marrakech. You will rest in these classic desert tents, some of which are in the luxury category and offer all the conveniences. There was no shortage of pillows, carpets, or blankets for sleeping, and there was also a private bathroom with a shower, wifi, and traditional Moroccan furnishings. Additionally, you can sample Berber tea, which is a Maghrebi tradition and a fitting end to a traditional meal. A drum display including regional rhythms was the experience’s finishing touch.

Here are your options for traveling to the desert from Marrakech.

The reason Marrakech is the most popular tourist destination in Morocco is due to both its unmistakable allure and the fact that it’s frequently the starting point for excursions into the desert south of the city. But how many are there, how many are there, how far away are they, and how do you get there? This post explains your alternatives for getting to the desert from Marrakech based on the days you have available and your preferences.

These are the deserts of Marrakech

Despite the fact that there is no such thing as the “Marrakech desert,” the word is frequently used. Speaking of many deserts that are relatively near to the “red metropolis” and to which tours of various lengths are scheduled makes more sense. We’ve listed them for you below.

Agafay desert tour, the closest to Marrakech

The Agafay, which is the closest and is located approximately 40 km distant, maybe the one that best embodies the term “desert of Marrakech.” As a result, a 2-day excursion is a convenient way to visit. Although the Atlas is not a barrier to access, its mountains stand as a backdrop and feature snow-capped peaks for the majority of the year. One of its biggest draws, though not the only one, is the topography, which is made up primarily of stones and compacted soil, which gives it a distinctive lunar landscape feel. Additionally, there are Berber tent camps in this desert, making it possible to sleep comfortably under the stars.

The ergs: the finest Sahara easily accessible from Marrakech

The Sahara desert, which is south of the Atlas Mountains and in Morocco is divided into various regions based on their topography and degree of aridity, includes oases, rocky canyons, wadis, and dunes. None of them are called the Marrakech desert; instead, they are named after the nearby settlement or population as a whole. And without a doubt, the three most well-known deserts are those that have their own Ergs, or huge areas of fine golden dunes, which correspond to the mental picture of the Sahara desert.

Three ergs can be described in this way:

Zagora desert tour:

This town is located about 350 km from Marrakech, so it is feasible to get here in circuits of 2 days or more. However, its most interesting point is almost 100 km to the south: M’Hamid, from where 4×4 routes depart to Erg Chegaga.

Merzouga desert:

Here is the largest and most famous erg: Erg Chebbi. There is a distance of 550 km from Marrakech, which can be covered in tour of 4 days onwards.

The Ouzina Desert, located about 50 km south of Merzouga, is the one that is most remote from Marrakech. But at the same time, it is the most genuine. Although the sand dunes are smaller, the area’s semi-island setting is ideal for experiencing absolute serenity and seclusion.

As you can see, there are several options to travel to the desert from Marrakech. You just have to choose the one that best fits your time and preferences, and leave everything in the hands of an expert agency in these circuits, such as Vacations In Morocco.
