Morocco Travel Tips - ERG CHIGAGA
There are two areas in Moroco where you can spend the night in the Sahara desert: Erg Chebbi dunes and Erg Chigaga dunes. Of the two, Erg Chigaga dunes are less frequented and more remote, but the dunes of Erg Chebbi are easier to include in an itinerary that would take in the imperial cities. Lately, a bus from Marrakech takes people up to Merzouga at the foot of Erg Chebbi dunes, which make them quite popular. However, worry not, the desert camp we offer is remote enough for you to immerse completely into Sahara's ambiance. Both sites are around 5 hours drive from Ouarzazate, Erg Chebbi to the east, Erg Chigaga to the south. From Marrakech to Ouarzazate, the trip lasts 4 hours. The tarmac road stops in Merzouga and M’hamid repspectively.
