Sahara Desert Morocco
The Sahara Desert of Merzouga, Morocco
Sand under your feet. Sand in your hair. Sand in your pockets. Sand in your camera. Sand gets everywhere when you're touring the Sahara Desert of Morocco. It's a good day-long bus ride to the southern borders of Morocco. Here the landscape turns from a martian-like desert terrain to the full blown dune landscape of the Sahara Desert. The views are spectacular and you truly feel millions of miles away from society. So saddle up and you best get comfortable on your camel - it's a long trek into the desert.
It was a treat to watch the sun come up and go down every day. The rich orange hue of the sands amplified the golden sunrise and sunsets.
Finding a tour into the desert isn't hard once you show up. I'd stay away from the packages people offer that includes lodging, guides and food before arriving in the area. We were lucky enough to find a good hostel in Merzouga with their own tents in the desert.
