When you think about Morocco, one of the last things that comes to mind is stargazing.
However, it is an ideal location since, while the majority of us live in areas with high population density and light pollution, which hinder the natural starry sky, there are parts in Morocco with no city lights. Merzouga Erg Chebbi sand dunes are one of Morocco's most spectacular and unusual stargazing destinations.
Try a camel trip into the Sahara for an incredible night of stargazing under one of the desert's most beautiful skies. The stars are spectacular in the Sahara, and the sky is gloomy.
