The Sahara Desert holds a magical adventure that is perfect for those looking to escape into another world. 

With my first expereince ever in a desert with large dunes, two nights was the perfect introduction to the Sahara. Camel rides, afternoons at camp, and nights under starry skies, the Sahara Desert was a bucket-list experience. 

Here are 10 photos to inspire you to visit the Sahara Desert in Morocco.

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:



  1. I just think there is something just so special about naked landscapes that buildings just can’t achieve. Morocco is my absolute number one country on my bucket list but I never associated traveling there with exploring the Sahara. How long does it take to get out that far into the desert?

      Hey Dani! To get into the Sahara Desert, pending where you come from, can take a while. We came from Marrakech and was about 8-9 hrs on the road. It takes about a day to get there. It was completely worth it!
