Start your trip to Morocco by visiting the Dakhla region
Located in the extreme south of Morocco, the region of Dakhla-Oued Ed (near the Mauritanian coast) in the Sahara is a mixture of desert and sea. Dakhla is a small natural jewel of Morocco, a well-kept secret, but more for a long time … Dakhla is certainly the most beautiful city in Morocco, if not the most beautiful city in Africa … Yet it is still little known to tourists due to its geographical location. It has all the assets to transport you beyond your daily routine. A city where desert and sea form a breathtaking setting that deserves to be visited during all seasons of the year!
Where to stay in Dakhla?
We advise you to enjoy your trip to Morocco, to stay in one of the camps located on the banks of the lagoon. You can opt for a “glamping” stay (glamorous camping) with optimal comfort, or for the more adventurous, you can choose to camp in tents or bivouacs for a more authentic experience.
The waterfalls of Ouzoud
Located 30 km from Azilal, 120 km from Beni Mellal, and 150 km northeast of Marrakech, Ouzoud waterfalls are both spectacular and beautiful waterfalls. An essential place during your stay in Morocco.
Where to stay?
The cascades of Ouzoud are less than two hours from Marrakech. Plan a small excursion if you are visiting Marrakech.
How to get there?
At first, we advise you to go to Marrakech by car, train, plane or bus, the ways to get there are many. Then, the ideal way to get to the waterfalls of Ouzoud is to rent a 4 × 4 if you want to go by your own means. Otherwise, you will always have the possibility to buy from an agency or directly at the reception of your hotel “the excursion to the day”.
Merzouga: an authentic experience to live during your trip to Morocco
Renowned for its highest dunes in Morocco, Merzouga is one of the authentic places to visit during your trip to Morocco. Merzouga is located in southeastern Morocco, just 50 kilometers from the Algerian border.
How to get there?
You can access this desert via the main road: the N13. On the other hand, to get closer to the dunes, and to your camp or starting point of excursion, it will be necessary to leave the main road. But do not panic, it is a “track” on which the cars circulate rather easily.
