SAHARA DESERT


A journey into the Sahara can be as varied as the desert itself, but there are some quintessential Saharan experiences.


Travel in the Sahara is best between October and April or early May when daytime temperatures are generally bearable.


Merzouga is a village in the Sahara Desert in Morocco, on the edge of Erg Chebbi, a 50km long and 5km wide set of sand dunes that reach up to 350m high. Most people are here to take a camel safari into the dunes.
