Tour Plan

On the first day of your 3-day tour in the Merzouga desert, we will pick you up from the airport. Then, we'll drive south to the Merzouga Sahara desert. You will have dinner and spend the night in Merzouga.

After breakfast, we will spend the day exploring the Merzouga area. This region is full of amazing places, such as sand dunes, a wild lake, mines, fossil sites, and beautiful oases, which are perfect for many outdoor activities.

First, we'll drive off-road to visit an old eyeliner mine. Next, we'll visit nomads in their handmade woven tents, where you can see how they live and enjoy a cup of Berber tea. Our next stop is Khamlia village, where you will experience Gnaoua music and dancing. The people in this village come from countries like Mali, Sudan, and Niger. You'll have free time for lunch at a restaurant.

After lunch, we'll take a walk through a grove of palm trees and then drive a short distance to see the wild lake of Merzouga, also known as Flamingo Lake.

In the afternoon, you'll ride camels across the sandy desert. We'll stop on top of a high dune to watch the sunset before continuing to the luxury camp. Here, you can enjoy Berber drum music and dance around the campfire under a sky full of stars. Dinner and an overnight stay will be at the camp.

Waking up early is essential to enjoy the beautiful sunrise in the middle of the desert. After some free time for breakfast, you'll ride camels back to Merzouga, where the driver will be waiting for you.
