Planning Your Trip

When planning your trip to the Saharan dunes please bear in mind:

  • We strongly advise it be part of a trip of at least a week’s duration (ideally 10 days or more for those wishing to visit areas outside the desert too), as the Sahara is about 9 hours by road from Fez and Marrakech.
  • Ideally visit between late Sept to early May to avoid the heat.
  • For further advice please ask our staff who know Morocco, the staff & the treks well. Please contact us on 01239 710814 or 0845 345 7195 (local call rate).
