Tagounite is a town and rural commune located in an oasis a few dozen kilometers from the border with Algeria, 50 km south of Tamegroute, 68 km southeast of Zagora and 230 km southeast of Ouarzazate.
M'Hamid is a small village about 24 kilometers from the Algerian border at the edge of the Sahara,, 98 km after Zagora, one of the two places in Morocco where Sahara begins (another is Merzouga). M'Hamid gets fewer visitors than Merzouga and is arguably more "authentic." It is about 7-8 hours by car from Marrakech and 5 hours from Ourzazate. It is "The end of the road" (the last point of The route national N°9), after it is only sands of Sahara, shepherds and caravan trails. M'Hamid was always a center for traveling nomads and caravans. Today the town is the starting point for tourist camel and 4x4 safaris into the desert.
Erg Chegaga (or Chigaga) is one of two major dunes of the Sahara in Morocco. This dune is located about 50 km west of M'Hamid and about 98 km south of the town of Zagora. With a length of approximately 40 km to 15 km wide, some dunes around a height of 60 m, it is the largest and wildest of Morocco.
Because it is relatively difficult to access – it is only accessible by 4x4, camel or on foot – Erg Chigaga remains as untouched, which can make for a memorable desert experience. Spend the night at the foot of this dune, enjoy gorgeous sunrise, sunset, and bright stars all night long.
Our Nomad camp is nestled in Sahara Desert surrounded by soft sandy dunes & view to the mountains. We invite you to experience traditional Nomads lifestyle, typical Moroccan food, traditional music, camel ride in Sahara dunes. Truly unique way to experience our culture. We speak French, Arabic and English, also a little Spanish, German. We pick up guests in Tagounit & M'hamid.
