Outstanding universal value
The desert near Marrakech is of course the Sahara Desert, the largest arid zone in the world. This desert is present in the following countries: Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Libya, Chad, Egypt and Sudan.
The Sahara has a strong tourist attraction. Every year, millions of visitors come to explore it. Marrakech is the main departure point for traveling to the Sahara Desert in Morocco.
The two most important areas of the Moroccan Sahara Desert are Zagora and Merzouga.
Which desert to visit?
If time and budget are not an issue for you, your best bet is to take a 4-5 day excursion to the Merzouga desert.
The place is much more beautiful and the journey, although longer, seems less burdensome thanks to the numerous breaks.
The landscapes covered during the days of the excursion are so beautiful that the journey is worth it. Places such as Aït Ben Haddu, the Valley of Roses, the Dades Gorges. The Drâa Valley and the Todra Gorges are surprising and very little known.
