Most people have in mind while thinking about the Sahara Desert, of endless sand dunes. Well indeed part of the world’s largest desert is sand, but only about 30% of it. While visiting Erg Chebbi region, expect a mix of different types of landscapes, rocky mountains, volcanic cobalt plateaus, palm trees and obviously, the amazing dunes. Did you know that we at Auberge Café du Sud offer the possibility of Berber desert camps in Morocco, where you can overnight on a real oasis? Amazing experience.
On the above picture, taken near the village of Tanamoust, 4 km away from Merzouga, you can notice how abruptly the sand starts in comparison with the empty muddy void. Actually, this empty part is a dry river, that once in a century fills up with water flooding everything on its way. During your stay with us, you can profit from our 4X4 Morocco desert tours while we take you around to explore the best sightseeing sites of the region.
