It is besides the irresistible charm of Merzouga which attracts more and more visitors from all over the world, tempted by the experience of the desert.

The dunes of Merzouga, more impressive than on postcards, offer you everything they have to practice sandbording or Berber Surf! As high as the waves, the adrenaline rush will be guaranteed!
As a couple or solo, the Zagora Desert is a “must do & see” in Morocco! In 4×4 or Buggy, it is perfect for getaways, for 2 or 3 day hikes and for authentic experiences. As you travel through the arid Desert , remember to stop to admire the historic sites, such as the Kasbah Aït Benhaddou.

The fortresses and kasbhas of the Draa Valley are just as impressive: they conceal a thousand and one stories!
At the end of your trip, the city of Zagora will welcome you to take you on a journey of sensations and tastes.

Don’t forget to sprinkle your end of the evening with a night under the stars!
