All you need to know before taking a Morocco desert tour:

The journey from Marrakech to the Sahara is one of the most breathtaking routes in Morocco. You will cross the Atlas Mountains, cross Tizi n’Tichka, the highest mountain pass in the country, and witness legendary kasbahs and gorges such as Ait Benhaddou, Todra Gorge and Dades Valley.
Zagora and Merzouga are two cities that serve as gateways to the Moroccan Sahara desert. With a distance of 223 miles (360km) and a seven-hour drive from Marrakech, Zagora, located in the pre-Saharan steppes, is the best option if you’re short on time. Even though the desert here is rocky and has smaller dunes, it still offers a unique experience for short-stay tourists.
On the other hand, Merzouga, located 560km from Marrakech, offers the classic shifting orange sands and rolling dunes of the Sahara. The journey from Marrakech to Merzouga takes around 10-12 hours. However, the journey can be broken up with overnight stops in Ouarzazate, Dades or Tinghir.

For a comfortable Morocco desert tour, it’s best to go during spring or fall to avoid the extreme summer heat and cold nighttime temperatures below 0 in December and January. However, if you opt for a summer trip, keep in mind that temperatures can reach around 40°C by July. While this is a dry heat, protecting your skin and eyes from the sun is essential if you’re outside during the day.

Morocco is a fascinating destination with many attractions. However, one of his most remarkable experiences is exploring the Sahara desert. As the largest hot desert in the world, the Sahara is a popular destination for many people. Riding a camel through hidden sand dunes, climbing sand dunes to watch the sunset and spending a night in a nomadic desert camp under the starry sky are definitely worthwhile experiences.

When planning to ride camels, it’s essential to wear loose, comfortable pants or jeans and briefs instead of a thong for comfort. To protect yourself from the sun and sand, we also recommend a long-sleeved, loose-fitting shirt and a long scarf. Remember sunglasses, a hat to protect you from the shade, socks and tennis or trekking shoes instead of sandals. In the winter, bring wool or insulating socks, a warmer jacket, a sweater or extra layer of clothing, long underwear, a shawl or blanket to cover you up, and hand warmers for extra warmth.

When it comes to Morocco, tap water is a topic that is often discussed. For locals, it’s usually safe, but if you’re visiting from another country, you should drink bottled water because you don’t know how your body will respond to the various germs prevalent in tap water.

Although Euros, US Dollars and Pounds are accepted in some tourist destinations, Moroccan currency (the Moroccan Dirham) is required for day-to-day transactions. The dirham can be received through bureaux de change at airports, large banks and hotels, or through ATMs, which are widely available in major cities and accept most credit and debit cards. Outside of Morocco, several exchange offices now provide Dirhams. However, they tend to give bad conversion rates. The simplest and cheapest approach is to use a debit card at an ATM. Unfortunately, ATMs are scarce in rural areas and small towns, and credit cards are often declined. In any case, inform your bank in advance if you plan to use a card to avoid any transactions being declined as a precaution to prevent fraud. The Moroccan central bank determines the value of the Moroccan dirham. Some larger merchants accept Euros and British Pounds. Traveler’s checks are useful in an emergency, but cashing them may take longer. To exchange the excess Dirham, you will need a currency exchange receipt.

Stop worrying if you come to Morocco and wonder if there will be enough excellent cuisine to enjoy as a vegetarian. Moroccans like meat and often offer it as a main course, but there are plenty of tasty vegetarian choices! When it comes to a gluten-free diet, the good news is that Morocco now offers a plethora of gluten-free dining and shopping alternatives. Green markets, vegetarian and organic restaurants and gluten-free patisseries can be found in Marrakech and Casablanca and Essaouira on the coast.

If you plan to visit Morocco, take the opportunity to explore the Sahara Desert. Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga and Erg Chigaga dunes in M’Hamid are the most popular destinations. To make the most of your trip, hiring a local guide to share the desert’s rich nomadic Berber history is best. There is a 3-day tour that includes a night in the Erg Chebbi dunes, and for those with more time, the Morocco Desert Tour from Casablanca would be an ideal choice.
From Marrakech, you can reach the Sahara desert by bus, helicopter or car. However, many prefer to hire a private driver for the 249-mile (561km) journey which takes approximately 9 hours. First, you’ll pass through the High Atlas Mountains and the ancient hilltop city of Ait Ben Haddou before arriving in Ouarzazate. From here, take the N10 highway to the junction for Merzouga.
The 287-mile (463km) journey from Fes to the Sahara Desert takes about 10 hours, but it’s well worth it for the ever-changing landscapes and unique stops along the way. You will pass through the ski resort of Ifrane and the forest of Azrou before arriving at the valley of Ziz. From Errachidia, it’s just a 2-hour drive on the R702 highway to Merzouga.
If you’re coming from Casablanca, you can take a 9-hour drive along the 411-mile (662km) N13 highway to reach Merzouga. Alternatively, you can take a one-hour flight from Casablanca to Errachidia and then drive two hours on the R702 highway to Merzouga. Remember to stop for lunch in the Berber village of Midelt.

If you plan to visit the Sahara desert from Marrakech, you should know that it is impossible to make a day trip. Merzouga, the entry point to the Sahara, is about 350 miles or 560 kilometers from Marrakech, and the journey includes winding mountain passes and sharp bends. Therefore, reaching the Sahara in one day from Marrakech is not feasible.
