The Zagora Desert is a dry stone desert, so it doesn’t offer the high and wide sand dunes like in Erg Chebbi and Erg Chegaga, but the scenery, mountain views, and experience are still impressive and well worth a visit.

Over 30 varieties of dates grow in the region, harvested from September to November. The town is renowned for having the best dates in the country. Their deliciousness is attributed to the hot, dry climate where temperatures can soar to 50 C (120 F) in the summer.

Zagora is a black and rocky desert with small dunes. To go to the Sahara Desert with big sand dunes, you benefit from the 3-day trips to visit the Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga or those in Erg Chegaga.
