This is going to be the best day of your 3 day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert.
After a delicious breakfast in your riad, you will start traveling towards the majestic Erg Chebbi dunes in the Sahara desert. Along the way, you will notice how different the scenery is compared to what you experienced the first day of the trip. Today, the scenery will be more like a rocky desert with its wonderful, old, muddy Berber villages and palmeraies providing you with many photographic opportunities. You will stop for short hike in Todra gorge; One of the most spectacular canyons in the world and the most popular rock climbing destination in Morocco.
After lunch in a local restaurant, we will continue our journey towards Erfoud, known as the fossils city, and is a great introduction to Moroccan archaeology. Here, you have the option to visit one of Erfoud's fossil museums to learn about Moroccan fossils and the process they go through before locals use them to make items such as tables, plates, and more...
You will arrive to Merzouga desert by 4 pm. Your camel guide will have your camels ready to take you on an adventure into the golden dunes of Erg Chebbi; the highest dunes in Morocco (2400 ft). You will enjoy beautiful scenery, an amazing sunset and the quietness of the Sahara desert before you reach your Sahara desert camp. Overnight includes dinner, bed and breakfast.
