Getting to The Sahara Desert

By tourist transport

Hiring a travel company when planning your desert tour in Morocco can ease your travel and save you time. Most travel agents offer a wide range of Morocco desert tours from various cities of Morocco such as Marrakech, Fes, and Ouarzazate. Check out our Marrakech desert tours and Fes desert tours.

By public transport

There are several public buses and Grand Taxis that can take you from different cities to the Sahara desert. but you may miss the arrival on time for sunset due to many stops along the road to drop off travelers. A private Taxi can work much better if you intend to spend only one night in Merzouga & Erg Chebbi dunes. We would highly recommend taking a private tour arranged by a tour company.

By Air Plane or Jet

The nearest Airports to the Sahara desert ( Erg Chebbi dunes and Merzouga specifically ) are Errachidia (Moulay Ali Cherif Airport – ERH), Ouarzazate ( OZZ ), and Zagora. Fly to one of the previous cities and let us arrange your transfers. You can find online cheap flights from Casablanca, Marrakech, Fes, Agadir, or Tanger that are operated by Air Arabia and Royal Air Maroc.

Sunset Camel Ride Over the golden dunes

Traditional Dress Will make you like a local, not A tourist!

To start your camel ride around sunset time and to live it as nomads do, the optional local dress ( Turban and robe come with several colors to choose from) will make you feel it for real. Try to stop and shop for it along the way to the Sahara desert as once you arrive at your camel’s park, chances you won’t find them. Your camel guide will help you tie your head scarf.

Riding your camel is made easy with the camel man!

The Camel Man/Guide or the man leading the camels will help you on riding your dromedary so you can enjoy the trek. Some of the camels are already with names but you can name them again as they are beautiful and patient creatures.
