Merzouga Excursion 2 days from Marrakech
From a not-too-far distance, the village of Merzouga merges with the surrounding landscape. That applies even to the inhabitants, of which most are dressed in traditional jellabas of earten colours.
The Saharan lake of Dayet Sriji is a surprise. You see, in most of Morocco the only form of lake you will see are the ones behind modern dams. So out here, about an hour of travel south of everything, you see a real lake. A salty one, that is true, but still it is a lake.
In the lake there are numerous birds, of which flamgoes will be the most fascinating for most to watch.
The dunes of Erg Chebbi is a strikingly strange natural formation. On the top of the flattest area you could imagine, suddenly a long mountain of sand rises. This mountain is surrounded by flat and desolate nature on all sides.
