We offer desert trip from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi sand dunes. It’s a magical landscape, which deserves much more than just a sunrise glimpse. The dunes themselves are fascinating, chacolorfrom pink to gold to red at different times of the day. the Sahara desert is a great place to appreciate the immense, clear desert sky.

For bird-watchers, this is the best area in Morocco for spotting many desert species, including desert sparrows, Egyptian Nightjars, desert warblers, fulvous babblers and blue-cheeked bee-eaters. Sometimes in spring (dependent on rainfall), a shallow lake appears northwest of Merzouga, near the Auberge Yasmina, attracting flocks of pink flamingos and other water birds.
