2 Day Tour of The Sahara Desert From Morocco

Welcome to our magical two day journey to the vast stretches of the Sahara. Our tour typically kicks off with a short one-hour flight from Casablanca, however, if you are travelling from other Moroccan cities like Marrakesh or Tangier, fret not; we’ve got you covered. We can seamlessly arrange a private transfer, ensuring you reach Mohamed V International Airport in Casablanca in style, luxury and comfort.

Our Morocco and Sahara Desert tour planning specialists will ensure a completely streamlined experience. Whether you’re starting from Casblanca itself, the vibrant alleyways of Marrakesh or the coastal charms of Tangier, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Highlights of our 2-Day Sahara Desert Tour

Our 15-day Southern Spain tour - Amazing! It's so hard to come back to reality after experiencing a Guided Spain Tour! Emily arranged a tour for my husband and myself for cities in Southern Spain (Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Jerez de la Frontera, the White Villages and Ronda, Malaga, hiking the Caminito del Rey, and Granada). In addition, we traveled one day to Tangiers, Morocco and Gibraltar, then spending our last 4 days in Barcelona and visiting surrounding cities. It was an amazing trip, which provided professional, private drivers and fantastic, well-informed guides for all of the cities and activities. In addition, Emily was constantly in touch with us during the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. We could go on and on about all of the very special experiences we had, and will definitely use Guided Spain Tours for other trips in Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Our only wish is that Emily would also do tours worldwide!

There’s no better way to truly feel the pulse of the Erg Chebbi dunes than by conquering them aboard a 4×4 vehicle, in a thrilling activity commonly known as ‘dune bashing’.

Strapped in safely, you’ll be driven by expert drivers who have mastered the art of navigating these shifting terrains. The experience is akin to a rollercoaster, as you’re taken over steep dunes, descending rapidly on the other side, with sand billowing around, offering a mix of exhilaration and awe. The roar of the engines, combined with the vast silence of the Sahara, is a juxtaposition that visitors rarely forget.

The golden hour in Erg Chebbi is unlike anywhere else. As the sun starts its descent, the dunes are bathed in a warm, golden hue, offering photographers a dream canvas.

This expedition is tailored for both photography enthusiasts and those who simply want to experience the desert’s evening beauty. Guided by a local expert who knows just the right spots, you’ll be led to vantage points where the sun casts long shadows, accentuating the curves of the dunes, making for dramatic compositions.

Whether you’re using a professional DSLR, a smartphone, or simply your eyes, the vistas will leave you entranced. And as the sun dips below the horizon, the desert sky transforms into a mesmerizing blanket of colors – from fiery oranges to moody purples, offering ample opportunities for the perfect shot.

Traditional Moroccan Dinner

After a day filled with adventure, there’s no better way to unwind than by indulging in the authentic flavors of the Sahara.

Set under a canopy of stars, you’ll be served a traditional Moroccan dinner, featuring local delicacies such as tagine (a slow-cooked savory stew), couscous, and more, all seasoned with a rich blend of spices that tell tales of ancient trade routes. The aroma of freshly baked Moroccan bread and grilled meats fills the air, promising a feast that delights all senses.

Regardless of whether you land in Zagora or Errachidia, a luxury desert camp nestled in the dunes of either Erg Chigaga or Erg Chebbi awaits.

Experience a camel ride across the dunes in the timeless traditional ritual. Experience the desert’s tranquility as the day ends, and savor a delectable Moroccan dinner under the starlit sky.

Spain-Morocco-Portugal: Our family just returned from a memorable trip to Spain, Morocco and Portugal - organized by Emily at Guided Spain Tours. I must say that I asked Emily to fill our days with enough activities to keep my active husband, daughter and her boyfriend busy but I wanted no stress or family fighting in traveling from place to place. Emily totally delivered! She arranged drivers to and from airports, trains and even a ferry plus had daily activities or day trips for us from cooking classes, wine tastings, food tours, sailing excursions, Fado concert, Flamenco show to full day tours visiting castles, cathedrals, and beautiful cities. She even coordinated an extended trip to Morocco for us. Everything went smoothly, we had wonderful drivers and guides, and we all had a great time! I appreciated that Emily stayed in daily contact to ensure everything was going smoothly. I highly recommend Emily and Guided Spain Tours!
