Best Time To Go To The Morocco Desert Trip

During the winter, it can get surprisingly cold. It’s even possible for it to snow! If you visited in late February you will find the perfect weather. It may get fairly hot in the summer (above 50 degrees), and walking in the sand in that heat is difficult.

Fall, late winter, spring, or early summer are the finest times to visit the Sahara desert. This guarantees that the temperature does not get excessively hot or chilly. We found it comfortable, albeit the nights were still a little chilly. Layers, such as coats and scarves, should be brought with you so you can dress appropriately.

What To Pack For The Morocco Desert Trip

Agafay Desert Day Trip from Marrakech

The temperature varies in the Sahara desert of Morocco. From super warm days to chilly nights

The Sahara desert has a wide range of temperatures. From hot days to chilly nights, there’s something for everyone.

I advise travelers to the Morocco desert /Merzouga desert to Bring a jacket, layers like scarves and/or a cardigan, as well as flip flops and tennis shoes. A scarf is ideal for keeping warm, blocking the wind, and keeping the sun at bay. If the wind picks up, you’ll want to wear a scarf to protect your face from the sand and the heat.

I also recommend taking sunscreen, and cash with you (most places only accept cash).

My advice is to arrange a tour reservation before arriving in Morocco. This way, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and what facilities are included. If you’re reading this in Morocco or are looking for a new adventure, go visit  Fez City Tour website and make a reservation!

Regardless of how you plan your trip to Morocco, I strongly advise you to see the desert. It’s really a one-of-a-kind experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. The Moroccan desert is one of the most magical places, be sure you will be planning your return!


While you may schedule your Morocco Sahara tour when you arrive, there are some hazards to doing so alone, especially for female solo travelers. When organizing an overnight from Marrakesh to Merzouga or Zagora Sahara, it’s critical to who you’re booking with.

In Morocco’s largest cities, many travel businesses are selling the same tours. If something goes wrong, you’ll need to know the company’s name so you can tell other travelers about it and prevent it from occurring again.

 The advantage of booking in advance is that you may conduct thorough research and select reputable agencies right away.

When you book a personalized tour with Fez City Tour Agency, you’ll have a variety of options and our travel agents will plan a safe trip to guarantee you have the best possible time in the Moroccan desert. All of our Local Agents at Fez City Tour have been hand-picked to ensure that you enjoy the greatest possible experience.

Final Words…About Morocco desert trip

The Sahara Desert was probably one of the travelers’ favorite tours to date and comes highly recommended.

Personally, Any of my clients who didn’t book in advance and booked through one of the many tour operators which are located in and around the Djemaa el Fna and/or the souks.

otherwise, your hotel/Riad can arrange and book your Sahara tour but it may come with a commission fee. So, it all depends on the traveler’s budget.

If you have 3 days in Morocco whether you are in Fez or Marrakech, try and get a tour that goes deeper into the Sahara Desert.
