To experience Camel trekking in the Merzouga desert ( Erg Chebbi dunes ) in the south-east of Morocco you need 6 – 7 hours from Fes or 8 – 9 hours from Marrakech which means sitting in the car for so many hours so to decrease the traveling time it is possible to fly from Marrakech, Casablanca and Fes at Royal Air Maroc or Air Arabia.
