Mountain & Desert Tour

Day 5 – (approx. 97km) Desert bivouac to Merzouga
Description:



Morocco 8 day Mountain & Desert - photo13A short day today to maximise our time in the big 'cathedral' dunes of Erg Chebbi.

After breakfast we leave the bivouac at 09.00 and set off for Morocco’s highest dunes at Erg Chebbi. There are more than 20 cathedral dunes that are more than 100 mtrs in height with the highest being 154mts above the plateau....for those of you up to it we will ride them all.

The track from the bivouac to the dunes traverses an open plain with many acacia trees. This area reminds one of East Africa - just missing the giraffe grazing in the trees. Expect some sandy and rocky sections on what is in the most part a fast couple of hours riding.

On arrival at the hotel we will have a quick coffee and move into our rooms before venturing out into the sand. Back for lunch at the hotel. After lunch we relax by the hotel pool until 16.00 hours when we will hit the dunes again until sunset when we will have a beer watching the sun go down from one of the highest dunes.
