Merzouga Desert Activities

Sahara Desert Activities Information :

“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, and hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams…”  Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the Little Prince

Merzouga golden dunes gives a legend image of a great desert in the world, the sandy dunes of this seemingly timeless vault have deep troughs and reach splendid peaks of some 250m. Sahara desert sand dunes are usually formed in two ways. They are formed when the wind blows the sand into a pile or a dune. Other way is when the water pushes the sand into a ridge.

A camel trekking in the Sahara desert dunes will make you so excited for experiencing the old caravans in the past years that used to travel back to many centuries-old routes seeking cool and great oases, springs of water and dealing in salt and spice…
Nothing compares with enjoying a night underneath the desert starry sky in the middle of the dunes. Stars gaze the bright night in the fresh air and live the great experience in the desert nomadic people with listening to some splendid Berbers stories under a great starry sky …
