GoPro Sahara Desert Selfie at Erg Chebbi - Morocco

Planning your trip to Morocco and considering a trip to the Sahara Desert? When I was organizing my trip last year I knew that I wanted to ride camels and visit the desert. In Morocco, you can go to either Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga. There are other places that tours take you like Zagora but that isn’t actually the Sahara Desert. I wanted the full meal real deal. I asked locals and other friends who had been and in the end, we made the long journey to Erg Chebbi which is near the town of Merzouga. It was a stressful and exhausting 2-day journey in our rental car but my experience in the desert was unforgettable. I still can’t get over how amazing it was. I would do it again and spend a few days in the desert next time. That’s how much I loved visiting the Sahara Desert. Please enjoy my Sahara Desert photos and video and hopefully, it will inspire¬†you to visit this gorgeous destination.

HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS

  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
