The Erg Chebbi dunes are the largest, most impressive and most beautiful sand dunes in Morocco, the grandest of which stand some 160m high. Their accessibility, by what is now largely a tarmac road, makes them one of the most popular highlights of the south of Morocco. The dunes rise up from a flat stone desert (hamada) and can be seen for miles around. The dunes themselves start at the small settlement of Merzouga and are incredibly picturesque at sunrise and sunset – burnt orange in colour and gigantic in stature – stunning views you will witness from our remote, overnight camps.
