Frequent Asked Questions

Both Zagora and Merzouga are popular tourist destinations in Morocco, known for their desert landscapes and opportunities for camel trekking and experiencing the Sahara Desert. However, determining which one is better depends on your personal preferences and what you are looking for in your desert experience.
