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.

Zagora is located in the Draa Valley region and offers a more accessible desert experience compared to Merzouga. It is closer to major cities like Marrakech, making it a convenient option for travelers with limited time. The desert in Zagora is still impressive, with beautiful dunes and picturesque sunsets. However, the dunes in Zagora are smaller compared to those in Merzouga.

On the other hand, Merzouga is renowned for its stunningly large dunes, including the famous Erg Chebbi. These dunes are among the highest in Morocco and offer a more dramatic and immersive desert experience. Merzouga is located in southeastern Morocco, close to the Algerian border, and a bit farther from major cities. This can make it a slightly longer journey to reach, but many travelers consider it worth the effort for the breathtaking dunes.

Can you do a day trip to the Sahara Desert from Marrakech?
