Erg Chigaga or Erg Chebbi Dunes

Erg Chigaga or Erg Chebbi at Merzouga Dunes? Many Marrakech visitors that can spare 3 or 4 days for a Morocco Sahara desert tour get confused about what direction they should take: Northeast to Merzouga or southeast to Erg Chigaga (Cheggaga).

Choosing which dunes to visit depends on your other plans in Morocco; and where else you intend to visit.

Merzouga dunes 3-day tour

This Merzouga desert tour; can be done in a minimum of 3 days 2 Nights; one can easily find a Private desert tour departing Marrakech to Merzouga in 3 days.

Erg Chigaga (Chegaga) is usually done in a minimum of 4 days – 3 nights, but it can be on a 2; or 3-days tour; and since the paved road ends in Mhamid located south of Zagora, a 4WD is for the last portion ( 3 hours drive ). In Morocco, you have the choice between two broad areas where you can visit proper dunes; the Erg Chebbi dunes; or Erg Chigaga dunes close to M’hamid.

Merzouga Erg Chebbi

Dunes Erg Chebbi is a well-developed area. With desert camps and hostels scattered around, the pink color dunes (sometimes 300 m high ). Then visit Kasbah Ait Ben HaddouDades Valley, the Valley of the roses. The road of the Kasbahs and Todgha Gorges on the way.

Erg Chigaga ideal for desert adventure seekers

Erg Chigaga is a much younger destination than Erg Chebbi, owing to border disputes with Algeria. Tourists have only been visiting since the 1990s. That said, it is becoming more popular. There are more camps than there used to be. As far as solitude is concerned, however, it still has the upper hand over Erg Chebbi. The journey from Marrakech is about 9 hours. The journey traveling down to Erg Chigaga is fascinating. You can add a visit to Ait Ben Haddou along the way and then follow the Draa Valley and the many oases & crumbling Kasbahs dotted along the way. Once you reach the small town of Mhamid, you can continue to one of the camps on the dunes. You can be trekking by camels direct from there. The dunes themselves are not as at Erg Chigaga, but it is somehow more vast and wild here.

Erg Chigaga Or Erg Chebbi

Erg Chigaga offers the chance for wild camping and saves you a couple of hours in the car. It is possible to manage a visit to Erg Chegaga in 3 days. But we recommend visiting the dunes and then spending time in one of the palm groves and at Ait Ben Haddou as well.
