Merzouga

Intro.jpg

We knew that our trip to Morocco would not be complete without visiting the Sahara. There is a direct bus that runs from Ouarzazate to Merzouga, which is the gateway to Sahara. It's a 7 hour ride and you can take in plenty of scenery on the way. 

Merzouga is a small village and the main industry is tourism there. We stayed at Auberge du Sud for one night, spent most of the day in their swimming pool as May sun was scorching. We spent another night at their luxury camp in the dunes. This was the highlight of our trip as the experience involved heading out to the camp on dromedaries. 

For some reason the food seemed to get better as we moved on with our trip. I don't know if it was because we got acquired to the taste or if it was genuinely the case. Anyway, if you're visiting the Sahara, do stay at a camp. You would not regret it.

Tips:

  • Sunscreen
  • Go Pro (to film your camel ride through the dunes)
  • Book a place with swimming pool

Next up, Fes! We made a couple of friends in Merzouga and they offered us a ride to Fes. It turned out to be our favourite road trip experience in Morocco as the landscapes changed dramatically through a 6 hour ride. Don't believe me? Look below for yourself. Click for Fes.
