Erg Chebbi Tours

Erg Chebbi
The Erg Chebbi is a majestic sand sea in Morocco’s desert that spans about 17 miles (28 kilometers) and boasts dunes that reach heights of about 525 feet (160 meters). Conveniently near the town of Merzouga, this is the Moroccan Sahara’s most popular desert camping destination.

The Basics
A visit to Erg Chebbi offers an opportunity for a variety of adventures, from desert driving classes to camel rides, all-terrain vehicle safaris, and sandboarding (dessert snowboarding). You can also book an overnight safari; accommodations range from army-style tents to luxurious affairs with draperies and en suite bathrooms. Opt for an overnight adventure from Merzouga or visit as part of a multi-day journey between Fez and Marrakech or a round-trip from Marrakech.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • In summer, the desert sand can burn your feet, so make sure to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Desert adventures can be great fun with children old enough to handle heat and long road trips. Camel guides will often request that younger children ride with them for safety. 
  • Morocco is a challenging destination for travelers who use wheelchairs, and Erg Chebbi’s rolling sand dunes are no exception.
How to Get There
Erg Chebbi begins about 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the town of Merzouga, in the Morocco Sahara, and rolls towards the Algerian border. You can reach the area by taking a domestic flight to Errachidia, which is about 75 miles (120 kilometers) north of Erg Chebbi, but most travelers opt for the scenic overland journey from Marrakech, or catch a bus to Merzouga from Marrakech or Fez.

When to Get There
Temperatures can reach well over 104°F (40°C) in July and August, making even the nights uncomfortable: spring, fall, and the winter holiday season are the most popular times to visit. Opt for a visit between mid-January and late February if you want to enjoy the desert at its least crowded, but be aware that nighttime temperatures can drop close to freezing during this time period.

From Marrakech to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi
To get to Erg Chebbi from Marrakech, you’ll likely travel via the Tizi-n'Tichka Pass, a spectacularly winding road that runs through the High Atlas mountains. Along the way, you’ll also pass the Kasbah of Aït Ben Haddou, a red mud fortress that is a UNESCO World Heritage site; Ouarzazate, Morocco’s film capital; and the Todra Gorge, then returning by way of the Draa Valley.

Together I drive with you into the area. My specialty is driving in the sand. Beginners and advanced learners find ideal conditions in Morocco to build and consolidate a solid off-road knowledge and skills. For the offroad driving school, you should bring your own SUV.
