The Desert Tours from Marrakech remain always an ideal option to closely explore the desert style of life and how the locals have showed fierce endurance to the harsh climatic conditions. The desert part of Morocco including the Erg Chebbi and Erg Chegaga sand dunefield form a small portion of the vast Sahara; in other words, they are the two gateways to the Great Sahara from Morocco.
In spite of the successive years of drought that have austerely affected the life of the nomads because it put an end to the varied flaura and fauna, the water level has gone deeper and deeper and the rainfall has become seasonal and even rare. However, the local nomads have been changing their way of life by settling in the green oasis of Merzouga that is located at the feet of the Erg Chebbi Sand dunes and thanks to tourism, the locals have shown unlimited hospitality towards the visitors to the extent that they have been sharing their ancient style of life with them.
Nowadays, Desert Tours from Marrakech include the camel trekking activity through the sand dunes to the camp consisting of Berber tents. The tours include a nice drive through the High Atlas Mountains, the Todra and Dades Canyons, the Valleys and Palm Oases.
