Sunrise over Erg Chebbi dunes

Day Tours – Camel Trekking in Merzouga

Sunset Tour:

The Sunset tour begins around 5:30pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi riding on top a camel. Then, we will leave the camels, travel by foot about 80 meters to reach the highest dune of Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view they must climb to the top, it will take them another 10 minutes. If you prefer not to hike up the highest dunes, the area around the camel “parking” is perfect to watch the sunset. After having enjoyed this short time we travel back to the village before dark. This tour includes a stop at the garden where you will have a short explanation about the canal system of the desert.
