Which is better Zagora or Merzouga?
We consider Merzouga the better option for experiencing the Moroccan desert. The landscape is more awe-inspiring due to the larger and more picturesque sand dunes, particularly the famous Erg Chebbi. Merzouga’s proximity to the Algerian border also gives it a more remote and untouched feel. Even though Zagora is easier to reach from Marrakech, its dunes are less impressive and smaller. Merzouga is the preferred option for those who want an authentic and visually stunning desert experience, provided they have the time.

Client Testimonials in Tripadvisor
My partner and I went on a 3-day tour from Marrakech to the Sahara Desert (Merzouga), and all we can say is what an incredible tour and experience it was. Excellent private tour. Our guides Mohammed (guide) & Mohammed (Driver) were incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic 3-day tour. We learned about history, art, culture, and much more. Would highly recommend Morocco Travel Tour 10/10
Excellent 3-day Desert tour showing off some of the best sights in Morocco. The itinerary is well-planned, with smooth transitions between events. Mohammed was the best tour guide; knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The standout was definitely the night in the Sahara Desert. Our tour itself was fantastic and highly recommended. If I had more time, I’d spent another night in the Desert.
It was a fantastic experience, and we saw a lot of beautiful sights over our three-day desert excursion. Our driver Mohammed has been very attentive and very kind to us. Our favorite sights were the Atlas Mountains, the Kasbah, Todgha Gorges, and the Desert. We rode the Camels into the Erg Chebbi and spent a memorable night in the Desert camp- A thing I would never forget. Thank you, Mohammed and Morocco Travel Tour.
