Tour of the Merzouga Desert

Friends of ours just got back from a trip to Morocco. This was an amazing adventure. Instead of a one-night, two-day tour with Touring In Morocco, we opted to stay three nights in the desert, and we think it was a fantastic decision. The luxurious, fully-equipped camp in the heart of the Erg Cheddi sand dunes. Additionally, the rooms are great, the mattresses are really soft, there are side tables, a pouf, drink, and fruit, and there is a fruit bowl. The restroom was spotless and well-stocked. Bathrobes, toilet paper, shampoo, soap… There were a variety of places to unwind, such hammocks, swings, reading nooks, card tables, and even a snowboarding section. Breakfast and supper were both really tasty and filling. I had a wonderful day and no complaints. Incredibly appreciative of your kind reception and for providing us with the opportunity to have such a memorable adventure.

An exciting camel ride for the whole family

Aziz was our fantastic driver; he disproved the stereotype that Moroccans are terrible motorists by driving as safely, if not safer, than Italians. Amazing journey; saw many stunning locations; not only in the Desert. From the Grand Canyon to the Grand Gorge, from the Atlas Mountains to a palm tree-filled oasis: Morocco has it all. What a fantastic nation, and our guide was excellent, suggesting not just the greatest places to eat, but also the best spots to take pictures and participate in other activities (like feeding the monkeys). This tour company and itinerary is one that we would recommend to everyone.

Our two-day excursion to Fes and Merzouga was unforgettable. Our tour guide Aly was excellent in every aspect; she was kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating during the whole trip, and she was always prompt and prepared to answer any questions or address any concerns that arose.

Cedar forests in the Azrou region:

One of the most extensive cedar woods in Morocco may be found at Azrou. It may be found in the center of the Atlas Mountains, not too far from Ifrane.

Palm groves may be found in abundance in Morocco. As a result, the breathtaking Ziz valley will serve as your first stop after departing from Fes on your two-day trip of the Sahara desert.

A river that flows through the valley also goes by the name Ziz. Approximately 200 kilometers in length, it continues on till it reaches Erfoud.

Ziz valley is unquestionably a wonderful location to go to if you are interested in taking some breathtaking photographs.


During our two-day trip of the Sahara desert that departs from Fes, one of the towns that we will take you to after the Ziz valley is Erfoud.

Because this city is so well-known for the fossils extracted from the surrounding mountains, a large number of archaeologists have traveled here to search for the city’s buried treasures.

It is up to the traveler to decide whether or not they want to go to one of the fossils extractors firms after they have arrived in the city before entering the Merzouga desert.

They argue that during the Paleozoic Era, which occurred around 380 million years ago, the Moroccan Sahara (also known as Rissani) was the bottom of a significant ancient ocean. To put it another way, the region around Erfoud is home to vast areas that are covered with fossils.
