Merzouga

4.5
Nature & Wildlife Tours · Deserts · Nightlife
Make Merzuoga a stop on your Morocco trip as part of a desert safari. The village sits on the fringes of Erg Chebbi--Morocco's majestic set of sand dunes, which are part of the desert excursions. Sunset camel rides over the neighboring 350 m (1,148 ft) tall dunes are one of the popular things to do here. Part of the nightlife of the region includes live folk and traditional music performances in neighboring villages. The setting is rustic--a typical street in this village consists of dirt roads lined with sandstone houses. To arrange what you want to do in Merzouga, use our Morocco tour itinerary builder app.

Where to stay in Merzouga

Hotels are the only form of accommodation in Merzouga. Most are equipped with swimming pools, restaurants, and terraces that look out over the sand dunes. Because nearly all of the hotels here are located on the fringes of Erg Chebbi, they provide easy access to desert safari adventures. In fact, most hotels own camels and can help you organize a safari tour of the desert. There aren't many independent restaurants in town, but most hotels offer foodservice.
