M’hamid and Erg Chigaga tours

  • mhamid-ghizlane

The desert makes express:
Erg Chigaga tours about 350 km from Marrakesh and after crossing two passes as diverse as n’Tichka and Tizi Tizi Tinifift the lunar landscape, Zagora is a small provincial town that marks the entrance into the desert. A few kilometers later, the first dunes give a taste of the Sahara and the austere landscapes out of the ordinary that insiders can only discover. In order not to lose sight of the traditions of yesteryear, camels and camel’s driver will go for a walk in the sand … first steps on the trail of blue men! Evening around the camp fire and night under the stars … guaranteed!

We hope you enjoy your travel under stars in M’hamid El Ghizlane with our Erg Chigaga tours package.

Testimonials

  • Hicham was one of the most friendly and hospitable people we met while in Marrakech (or Marrakesh). His knowledge of the area, his ability to relate to our questions and the way he took additional care to ensure we were comfortable and that all our needs were met was outstanding. He brought us from Marrakech to Casablanca and took us to the beach, the Mosque, Rick’s Cafe (where he successfully asked if we could have lunch even thought we weren’t in the proper dress code) and brought us to the airport the next day. He was friendly and made us feel very comfortable.

    we enjoyed our Private Day Tours in Morocco thank you hicham

    I highly recommend him for anyone needing a guide in the area.
