Air Arabia has very affordable flights from/to Marrakech/Zagora twice a week and Desert Candles are happy to arrange your transport from Zagora to the desert.

Erg Chegaga dunes are located around 1,5 – 2 hours off-road driving from M’hamid village and can only be reached by 4wd cars or camels. Your desert adventure starts in M’hamid.
