Sunset Camel Trek Tour in Merzouga Desert Reviews

Amazing Sunset Camel Ride

I don't think you can see northern Africa without taking time to see the Sahara, it is truly a sight to behold. The shadows that the sun cast, the camels walking statuesque along the dunes, it is truly awe inspiring. We did a sunset camel ride and I would say this was my highlight of Morocco, the camel guides were amazing, they knew how to keep the group together, get the camels to kneel and the perfect sunset spots.

Sunset camel trek in Merzouga desert

Had an opportunity to visit this wonderful and amazing Sahara desert tour, a ride with the camel was a dream come, it was scary but a beautiful experience,the sand dunes was so fine and waiting for sun set was very memorable,it was just so lovely.hope I can go back to that place.

Highlight of the entire trip to Morocco

The desert tour was the best thing we did in Morocco. The views were stunning, and the sunset at the desert is one of the best I've seen in my life. Also our overnight in desert camp was we expected to have less facilities in the middle of nowhere, but the tour company offered water to wash hands, electricity to charge phones, and the beds were more comfortable than in some hotels. Highly recommend this tour - you wont regret it.

Sunset Camel Trek Tour in Merzouga Desert

Merzouga Sunset Overview

Sunset camel trekking in Merzouga desert. A trip to the desert in Morocco is not complete without a camel trek in the dunes. For those who are fascinated by the caravans which crossed the African deserts between mythical cities transporting wanted products like salt, this is the opportunity to feel like a nomad for a few moments.

It is a journey well worth the effort and you will have fond memories to lose you forever. Imagine yourself on top of a camel, trekking through the Sahara desert. There is nothing around you and you can hear are the footsteps of the camel on the soft sand. The sky is vast and clear in the day and filled with millions of bright stars at night. It is a very peaceful experience, one rarely known to most of the western world.

Itinerary Program
(Sunset Camel Trek Tour in Merzouga Desert)

The Merzouga sunset camel trek tour starts at least 1 hour before sunset time. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi on a camel. Then, we will leave the camels and in about 80 meters we will reach the highest dune of Erg Chebbi Merzouga. For those who want to see a panoramic view, they must climb to the top. The walk to the top will take another 10 minutes. If you prefer not to climb the higher dunes, the area around the "parking lot" of the camel is perfect for watching the sunset. After enjoying the sunset, return to the village, stopping in the gardens (as you wish).
After having enjoyed this short time, we returned to the village before nightfall.
