If you have read my Zargora Post, you will know I was so unsatisfied with the baby sand dunes around that area:P. So, right after I hit Zargora city center, I went into a tour company and negotiated a price with them to go deep into the desert. The original plan was to take a 4×4 and tour around the desert for the whole day and come back to Zargora and stay for the night! The price is 2000 Durham(Around 200 euro) and it would included staying for the night in a Riad after I come back. However, the  owner of the company kept saying it will be better to stay in the desert for one night because I will see the sunset and sunrise of the desert. Also, it’s spectacular to see the stars at night time without any light pollution. I need to tell you all, I was in a dilemma when I heard that. First, I need to pay 500 Durham more just to spend that extra night in the Desert. Second, I need to stay alone in the Desert with 6 Berber men!! One of the Berber man will be the same guide as my Zargora desert tour. My gut was telling me I need to do it because I really want to see the big dunes! And I actually felt that the owner and his staff are genuine and honest:) So, after 30 mins of negotiation and explanation, I jumped into a 4×4 vehicle and head to one of the biggest Sand Dunes of Sahara- ERG CHIGAGA….without regrets:P

Zagora, Morocco

Zagora, Morocco

When I think of Morocco, I always think of Sahara Desert. It’s like a must go destination for people visiting Morocco. As some of you might already know I have already been to the Sahara Desert in Tunisia but it’s just around the edge of the actual desert; so the Dunes are really small. Now that I am in Morocco, I aim at hitting the BIG SAND DUNES of the Sahara. So, right-after my visit to this really european look-alike town called Agadir, I hit Marrakech again and hoping to join some adventure tour. When I got to the travel agency, a guy introduced me to a town called Zagora and helped me to sign up for a 2 days Zagora Desert tour:)
