God made the desert and called it peace.
The Arabic word for desert is Sahara and it is during your tour of Morocco that you will get the opportunity to witness this wonder of the world for yourself.
The Sahara covers almost four million square miles and is larger than the USA but is not always sandy. The desert takes many forms from black rock and gravel to mountain ranges and incorporates oases of palm groves, lakes, towns and of course, the evocative rolling sand dunes.
However, it is Erg Chebbi, the 150m high dunes at Merzouga as they change from the palest cream to deep oranges which will inspire you, day or night. Whilst some easily accessed areas have become touristy, with So Morocco you can experience the romantic desert of your imagination, where the only other footsteps you will see are those of your camel. If you have more time available and are looking for something even more wild and remote from tourism, we will take you to Erg Chigaga, M’Hamid.
The sky is vast and clear in the day and filled with millions of dazzling stars at night. You can choose to sleep in your exotically cosy Berber camp or lay out under the stars absorbing the mystical power of the desert.
Time spent in this area, with the people of the desert, is an exceptionally spiritual experience and I have never yet met a single person who wasn’t moved by it. If you need to heal, if you need to discover or if you just need to relax, deeply – explore the Sahara with us.
