Subjects : The Erg Chebbi desert or orange is a drop of sand in an expanse of black stone. Persons who can portray the guides are Berbere with their smile, caravans of camels and the beautiful skies with the Milky Way most beautiful thing I've ever seen. During the winter perdiodo in conjunction with the formation of ephemeral lake also the desert, there is a chance to meet the pink flamingos. Occasionally and at night you may encounter in fenner, a desert fox and a kind of small mammal similar to the shrew. Consider that, given the high temperatures of the day, most of the animals is predominantly nocturnal. Nocturnal habits who also have many beetles at sunset They shove it in tents and that, despite their appearance may seem disturbing, are completely harmless ... at least I think.

Recommended equipment : I can not give absolute advice. All optics could be used to bring home shots to keep. As for my experience I can say I brought Canon 60D, Sigma 10-20 4-5,6 and the trusty tamron 17-50 2.8. I highly recommend bringing a calletto to photograph the beautiful night skies and of course everything you need to have a machine clean and protected from dust and sand. I wish I had a telephoto lens to isolate details of the dunes, but I had to opt for a choice that I would guarantee a certain lightness.

Best months : Unlike most of the countries here in north africa ... even though we are here in North Africa, are less obvious in the desert there are few trees to lose their leaves ... :). Nevertheless, there are differences. Sconsiglerei going to the desert in the middle of summer, so I would avoid July and August, as early as September LOE temperatures drop at night and you hear a pile of cool. In January, because of the few rains is formed near the wadi separating the erg Algeria forms an ephemeral lake where they will remain the flamingos, but I think in January, sleeping outdoors is a bit risky if you are not quite covered . In early summer (May, June) is the best time to make the sand baths, according to the premises, a holy hand account of all the rheumatic pains, maybe if we happened why not try ..

How to get there : And 'possible to reach Merzouga by bus, taxi or a large rental car. The journey is long but the effort is amply rewarded by the sight of beautiful dunes bright orange and if you have the desire and the ability to stay the night you will be rewarded by a night sky full of twinkling stars. The trip by bus is cheap, even if it is not the most comfortable with Supratours from Fez is part around 21:30 to arrive between 6 and seven in the morning sleeping little and badly. From Marrakech the bus trip is much longer, it's probably best to do it in two stages even descending into the valley of Dades or Tinrir. Despite being highly publicized avoided Ouarzazate, ugly, modern and impersonal despite the presence of a very beautiful and famous casbah turned where Zeffirelli's Jesus of Nazareth, but this is just my personal opinion .... maybe I'm wrong.

Visits : Clearly, access to the desert is completely free. All this of course assuming you have a jeep or camel .... walk from the hotels located on the edge propruio you can set off through the first dunes and maybe be able to To advance a little bit but really do not know what can be recommended, but because the most internal ones soo I return a very special atmosphere. Council to be accompanied by local guides, and equipped with a depth Acquaintances of the place. The desert is a beautiful place but can also be strongly pericoloso.Consighlio to see the sunset from the top of one of the great dunes, a unique vision, and then go down to the field under a starry fantastic.

Notes : And 'possible to rent a jeep or the ubiquitous quod. In some parts of the desert you can see traces in the sand. Personally I recommend you do the trip by camel with a guide berbebra, maybe trying to make a torrent that includes a night in a camp with dinner under the stars. Nonn am a lover of confusion and therefore not consiglerei the caraovane more commercial Allowed to go up to fifty members between Berbers and tourists, scenic but, in my opinion, unfit to breathe in the atmosphere of extreme environment and the wild desert fails to return . But this is a matter of taste personali.PS: do not hold back in bringing water in the wilderness is never enough.
