Moroccan Sahara, Ouarzazate

The Moroccan Sahara, also known as Southern Provinces, represents a slice of the Sahara, the world's largest hottest desert. Traverse this desolate region by camel, quad bike, or four-wheel drive vehicle through the wind sculpted sand dunes. At night star gazing is almost unrivaled due to the remoteness and air clarity. By day the views of sweeping expanses of sands into the Atlas Mountains are only interrupted by the occasional oasis.

  • No visitor can go to Morocco without seeing the Sahara desert. From Marrakech it is difficult to visit Merzouga or Chigaga in one day . the drive is too long and you would miss the beauty of a sunset....  more »
  • This is evidently one of the most beautiful deserts on earth. There is a lot to see in this desert and every single thing was beautiful!  more »
