The dunes of Erg Chebbi
The largest desert in the world is a whopper, spanning several countries including Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga, south of the snow-capped High Atlas mountains, is a large sea of dunes formed by powerfully wind-blown sand. What can you do as a visitor? What do you fancy? Activities range from camel trekking through the sunburned peaks to sleeping in a desert camp and visiting Berber villages. Accessible only by camel, on foot, or in a four-wheel-drive, the remote dunes won’t disappoint, and see fewer visitors than their well-known cousins at Merzouga.
