If you are planning to travel with a map in the Morocco desert, it is important to know that the Sahara is a vast desert and covers a huge area of Morocco. However, not all of it looks like the image you probably have in mind when you picture the desert in Morocco. In fact, a huge part of Morocco’s desert region is a big, flat landscape of dusty grey rubble! To see a real desert of undulating golden sand dunes, you have to head to the “ergs”. These are areas of shifting sand dunes in the Sahara that look exactly like what you would hope to see when visiting the desert.
In Morocco, there are two areas of Saharan dunes which tourists can visit: Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga. Both are situated in the remote south/southeastern desert region of Saharan Morocco, beyond the Atlas mountain range. Erg Chebbi is home to nomad Berbers and is the smaller of the two ergs, at 22km long and 5-10km wide. But the dunes reach a greater height of up to 150 meters.
You can plan your trip with a detailed map of Morocco that includes the most important places, the best routes and the distances between points. It’s also a good idea to research and plan your route ahead of time and make sure you have enough supplies for your trip.
I hope this information helps you plan your trip to travel with a map in the Morocco desert! Is there anything else you would like to know?
