Sunset Camel Trek in Merzouga

Overview

The Sunset Camel Ride in Merzouga is an occasion to discover the peace and timelessness of life in the desert on this guided sunset tour from the village of Merzouga. Climb aboard a camel and travel across the sea of Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Then watch a stunning sunset in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

Merzouga Sunset Camel Trekking Tour begins at around 5:30 pm. It takes almost half an hour to reach the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi Merzouga riding a camel. Then, we will leave the camels at about 80 meters to reach the highest dune of Merzouga.

At Morocco Tours Agency, we offer suitable Sunset Camel Trekking tours for all categories: groups, families, Students, and Couples, or a group of friends getting together to have a fun day out.

Program Itinerary of the Sunset Camel Trekking Tour

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.

Climbing to the top takes 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.

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 yourself 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 visitors.

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.

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 in the desert is one of the best I've seen in my life.

Also, our overnight in desert camp was we expected to have fewer 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 won't regret it.
