Full description
Start your visit to the area around Merzouga and the land of the Ait Khebbach tribe with pick-up from your accommodation in a spacious and comfortable 4x4 vehicle.

Start your desert exploration with a visit to the village of Khamlia. Here, you'll enjoy the inhabitants' music and dance, and have the opportunity to try their instruments and learn to play some desert music of your own!

Cross desert plateaus far away from concrete roads and visit a Berber family in their tent for lunch. Learn how they live in their tents with goats, sheep and working donkeys, as well as how to prepare a Berber pizza on the fire. Enjoy this delicious communal meal in their home.

Afterwards, take a 4x4 down a gravel road to the Lake of Merzouga (also named Lake Tamezguida), which appears seasonally from November to May during the rainy season in  Middle Atlas. This is the best spot to see desert birds, and sometimes even flamingos! Return to your accommodation in Merzouga in the late afternoon.
