Enjoy a trip through the colorful desert in Merzouga. In this trip you'll have the pleasure of learning about the colorful Berber culture, as well as getting to taste authentic Berber food. End the tour at the rarely seen lake of Merzouga, nLake Tamezguida (only seen in the rainy season).
Start your visit to the area around Merzouga and the land of the Ait Khebbach tribe with pick-up from your accommodation in a spacious and comfortable 4x4 vehicle.
Then you'll start your desert exploration with a visit to the village of Khamlia. Here, you'll enjoy the inhabitants' music and dance, and have the opportunity to try their instruments and learn to play some desert music of your own!
Cross desert plateaus far away from concrete roads and visit a Berber family in their tent for lunch. Learn how they live in their tents with goats, sheep and working donkeys, as well as how to prepare a Berber pizza on the fire. Enjoy this delicious communal meal in their home.
Afterwards, take a 4x4 down a gravel road to the Lake of Merzouga (also named Lake Tamezguida), which appears seasonally from November to May during the rainy season in the Middle Atlas. This is the best spot to see desert birds, and sometimes even flamingos! Return to your accommodation in Merzouga in the late afternoon.
