Exotic and historical, this was well worth the stop. The camel ride was fun and the dunes at sunset were magical. We saw numerous fossils in the rockbed out cropping. One could imagine the camel caravans coming across the desert.

I didn't expect to be on the front of a camel train riding out into the desert for an hour to our overnight tented accommodation at the foot of a giant sand-dune you had to use hands and feet to climb. I'd bought a 3 day trip from Marrakech but hadn't considered what a liberating and fun time I'd have... More

You have to see the dunes and desert at least once when in Morocco. Beautiful sunsets and can do camel riding and sand boarding. Just make sure to choose the right tour operator.

This was top of our list when planning our ten day holiday in Morocco. We went there with Youssef of SaharaTours4x4, who grew up playing on the dunes. They are massive, and just shout 'climb me'.

You cannot visit Morocco without visiting the Sahara. Absolutely beautiful and plenty of tour groups around to show you the sites (don't be afraid to barter and shop around)

Beautiful sand dunes, special experiences: camel ride, overnight in the middel of the desert in berber tents. The calmest place in Morocco, but unfortunatelly the quads can destroy the authentic experience-should be at least restricted.

Loved the dunes here. You can walk up to it and take all the desert has to offer. Come during sunset and you can see the sun setting on the horizon. It is beautiful. Sunrise is just a pretty!

Although the dunes are beautiful, for me the visit was severely marred by the cheesy touristy visiting experience that is offered by all of the tour companies. Skip this if you seek any type of nature or authentic experience; go only if you are prepared for the full on Disney experience, complete with costumes and sound effects.

It was simply beautiful. My favorite experience in Morocco. I came here by private car from Fez. It was a 9.5 hour drive and even though it was long, it was an interesting drive and it was enjoyed. The private guide and riding the camel into the Sahara was super cool. We came upon my camp for the evening about... More
