Merzouga Overview

Merzouga is a small village in south-eastern Morocco. It is located right on the edge of a large Saharan erg (sand sea) named Erg Chebbi. Merzouga is about 35km's from Rissani and a paved road now connects it to the rest of Morocco. It is approximately 50km's from the Algerian border.

There are many hotels, guesthouses and guide services popping up in the area, as it is a very popular base for travellers wanting to venture out onto the dunes via camel or 4x4 for day, or overnight excursions. There is also a lake in the area which is sometimes frequented by pink flamingos.
