Auberge Café du Sud is located in the Dunes of Erg Chebbi, in the southeast of Morocco, administrative region of Draa-Tafilalet. The closest locality is the famous and traditional village of Merzouga. The location of our desert hotel, isolated in the dunes, makes it the perfect site to serve as a base for exploration of the Moroccan Sahara Desert.
How to get there
Erfoud – Café du Sud
Paved asphalt R702 from Erfoud direction Merzane-Derkaoua. This road is accessed through Erfoud city center, crossing the river and heading the direction of the dunes. Approximately 33km from the bridge, and driving non-stop thru the road, you will reach a Café du Sud road sign to turn left into the few hundred meters of track. Even though this is a dirt road, it is perfectly accessible in a small car.
Rissani – Café du Sud
Paved asphalt N13 road in the direction of Rissani-Merzouga. Traveling by Rentacar or in your private vehicle, 14 miles after Rissani you will find a traffic sign pointing to the hotel on the left side, with the dunes already at sight. From this point on you just need to cover the 5 miles of dirt road until you arrive at your destination by following the signs. Even though this is a dirt road, it is perfectly accessible in a small car.
- If you don’t have your transportation, all you need to do is get to Erfoud, Rissani, or Merzouga on the bus that starts its trip to some of the main cities in Morocco.
- One of the most common routes is from Marrakech to Merzouga by bus. The trip with the Supratours company, for example, takes about 12 hours, leaving Marrakech at 8.30 am, you will arrive in Merzouga at 9 pm. The ticket costs about 200 Dirhams (20 Euros). This is for sure the best option to get to Merzouga by bus. You can also get the same bus departing from Ouarzazate.
- While booking, ask for the hotel transfer service so that we can pick you up as soon as you arrive by bus. Very easy.
