This 2 days tour to Zagora desert doesn’t offer a real experience of the desert, if more time available in your schedule so we recommend 3 or 4 days to Erg Chebbi desert for more enjoyable desert trip.
If you’re into astrophotography and want to take some amazing photos of the Milky Way, I’d definitely choose Merzouga over Zagora as the stars there are truly incredible and worth the 3-day trek .
