M'Hamid

Geologic Formations · Nature & Wildlife Tours · Safaris
Evoking images of traveling nomads and trade caravans, M'Hamid lies in a spacious palm oasis at the edge of the Sahara. The settlement most likely dates back as far as 3,000 BCE. Swept by desert winds, which always bring in heaps of sand to the roads used by donkey carts and small motorbikes, the village is dotted by typically Moroccan concrete houses painted bright red. M'Hamid tourism mostly thrives thanks to its proximity to the desert and the Erg Chigaga dunes. Among the most popular things to do in M'Hamid are camel rides, 4x4 safaris, and camping in the desert. Make your own M'Hamid vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Morocco online day trip planner.
