Sand areas of the Sahara are called Ergs, and they are only 25% of the total area of the desert. There are two major Ergs in the Moroccan Sahara: Erg Chigaga and Erg Chebbi.
You can make the Desert trips either from Marrakech or from Fes; both are picturesque journeys with many interesting points of interest along the way.
Erg Chebbi is relatively easy to reach from both Fes and Marrakesh. Our very popular Marrakesh desert tours starts in the town of Merzouga, east of M’Hamid. It contains a well-developed tourist infrastructure, is less remote, and has a more touristy feel. But it is here you have a chance to see a really brilliant collection of eternal dunes, the largest dunes in Morocco (up to 150m high).
Erg Chigaga, on the other hand, is harder to reach. It is the largest and widest desert in Morocco with dunes around 60m high. It is less developed, less touristy, and offers an unspoiled charm. Our Marrakesh desert tours begin in the village of M’Hamid, from where you will be taken along the picturesque 40-kilometer route to the heart of the Moroccan Sahara – Erg Chigaga. One must travel from Marrakech to M’Hamid where the road ends, then continue via 4×4 all-terrain vehicle.
