About Erg Chebi

Erg Chebi is a stunning region that offers an undiluted flavour of Morocco. There are loads of great things for travellers to enjoy when in the area. If you're up for the adventure you can spend the night camping in the Sahara - it's a great excuse to spend as much time as possible watching the sun sink into its sunset and lift into its gorgeous sunrise. 

Erg Chebbi

Erg Chebi actually means 'head of dunes', and in the Sahara Desert there are many, many, many of those.
