"Sahara Sunrise" Top 5 Page for this destination Erfoud by zrim

Erfoud Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 54 photos

The small enclave of Erfoud is in the far reaches of eastern Morocco. It is a day's drive from either Fez or Marrakesh. The main reason to travel all the way to Erfoud is to visit the Sahara Desert. I've always been fond of deserts and the Sahara is the grandaddy of all deserts, so when the optional sunrise trek to the dunes was offered, there really was no choice but to wake at 3:30 a.m. for a daybreak adventure.

    Great pictures and adventure. Haha, I drove there very, very old Mercedes with two locals. And surprisingly we met some locals walking in the middle of nowhere :-)

    a nice page bringing back great memories ! ...I also remember that we had the chance to take a little walk in the desert and all of a sudden there were lots of local "guides" and I still have no idea, where they had hidden upon our arrival...

    A little worldtrekker sloganism and a great desert shot and we have a viable page. I think I'd like to see the Sahara myself but only after the sunrise.
