The Sahara Desert is a place you really cannot skip when you are visiting Morocco. So, how big Sahara is? It is BIG! 9.4 million Square kilometers which is the same as the size as the United States.
You can start from Fes coming from Chefchaouen, the blue city. From there, you can continue to Merzouga which is the city that is located at the beginning of the Sahara. The same route is also available from Marrakech as a return. Be prepared for a lot of driving but the sceneries and sights you will visit will make it up to you. On reaching Merzogua, you can head for actual desert ride preferably on a four wheel vehicle. Special camps have been setup in the desert to see the sunset in the desert which is always a riveting experience. Yet, the biggest attraction is glamping in Sahara which means spending night in the desert in a tent but with way more luxury. Desert camel ride over dunes in the Sahara desert is another exuberant attraction which certainly will be an unforgettable experience.
On the last part of your journey, you can ride for Marrakech passing through many beautiful spots like Tenhir, Tinjdad, Jorf and Erfoud. This part of Sahara desert tour is most beautiful. You can enjoy another awe inspiring sunset in Boumalne Dades or any other nearby village. Here you can dwell into a traditional Kasbah for spending the night.
From Dades to Marrakech, you will enjoy riding along the deep cliffs and snowcapped mountains of Atlas range. Here you can divert towards Ait Benhaddou, a famous place where a lot of movie scenes are taken. Enjoy a good mint tea on top or buy a rug on your way to Marrakech where you journey of Sahara desert will be concluded certainly with lots of unforgettable experiences.
