Again on a camel ! But this time, these nice animals were more comfortable. Sand is also softer than stone (like in Zagora). But some of us also found a solution : put two blankets on your camel instead of one ;-)
Oh was this fun. Here's a little geography lesson first. Merzouga is roughly 8-10 hours from Fes, and about an hour from Erfoud. If driving from Fes, stop in Erfoud and get gas, and some coffee at the popular Cafe du Clap while watching old American war movies with the owner. Then hit the road to Rissani where you'll probably find a guide, if not, kiss your butt goodbye because you'll never find your way to Merzouga, it's almost impossible. First off, there isn't even a road, let alone a path or road signs. Secondly, it's really harsh driving, lots of bumps, potholes, and rocks. Good luck.
You can see this Mercedes heading Merzouga near the dunes.
This one is going from Rissani. The road to Merzouga to Rissani is far better than the one from Erfoud.
