Watching the sunset in the Sahara desert is by far the most memorable travel experiences I’ve ever had to date. I’ve been to many places in the world, including most of Europe and Asia, Russia and even Egypt, but Morocco was the place that I really fell in love with. Visiting Marrakech, camping in the Sahara desert (dedicated blog post coming soon!) and frolicking amongst the sand dunes was so surreal, unique and fun. It’s technically not recommended to wear revealing clothing in a Muslim country like Morocco, so I had a shawl on until we actually got to the dunes.
It was our last night at the desert camp (more to come soon!) so the staff drove us out to the bigger sand dunes. The weather had cooled down by this hour and there was a light breeze. The sun during the day was forgiving but the sunset in the Sahara desert was actually very pleasant. We ran up the sand dunes, keeping track of where we’re stepping so we wouldn’t ruin the sand for photos. After we finished taking photos and videos we sat and waited patiently. We conquered a dune for ourselves while many of the other dunes were occupied with other camp guides or tourists. It was windy and there was a lot of sand, but in that vast space it was also peaceful and beautiful. Watching the sunset in the Sahara Desert was a truly amazing experience you should try if you ever get the chance!
