Morocco Desert Trekking 2023/2024 ( 6 days in Erg Chegaga )
6 Days (5 nights) – Erg Chegaga
Day 1: We start our trip on the camel to explore and discover very beautiful and wonderful parts of the big desert. We take our way towards the big dunes of Erg Chegaga. After about 3 hours ridding we sit for a lunch break under a shadowy tree. After another 3 hours between ridding and trekking, we set a camp in a dry river (Oued Naam) to spend the night under the stars.
Day 2: On the morning, we fasten our luggage and start our trip in the midst of the desert to see and explore more. We cross a big part of the desert area (about 3 hours ridding). Later, we sit for continuing after for another 3 hours walking. We set our camp in a wonderful dune area named Lotide. We will have dinner and night under the starlit sky or in the tent.
Day 3: After the sunrise and the morning breakfast, we carry on our trekking with our companion animal (camel) towards the big dunes of Erg Chegaga. Before we reach this large group of dunes, lunch and a cup of tea are offered to relax and get more energy in the Sacred Oasis. This Oasis consists of a small group of palm trees and a source of water which is running the whole year for the nomads to soak their herds and get a little water for survival. After further 15 km, we reach the big dunes of Erg Chegaga with the height of 300 m on a length of 40 km. You enjoy the sunset on the high dunes to taste a different world of calmness and tranquility. We spend the night in the Berber tent in a bivouac. Dinner will be accompanied with local entertainment.
Day 4: After a relaxing night in the big dunes, we make our way back to the desert door (M’hamid). After about 3 hours ridding, we have a break for lunch under a shadowy tree. Later, we continue our exploration to arrive at the dunes of Bougarn for the night in the tent or under the starlit sky.
Day 5: We get up early morning to enjoy the sunrise. Breakfast will be served in a Moroccan way. Later, we carry on our discovery adventure along a huge area of dunes and desert stones. After lunch, we continue our trekking or ridding towards the dunes of Mezouaria for the night either in the tent or open air under the starlit sky.
Day 6: On the morning of the sixth day, we carry on our trekking or ridding towards M’hamid. Lunch will be served in the hotel.6 Days (5 nights) – Erg Chegaga
