admanz, we were at erg chebbi about a week ago (now at chefchouen), merzouga is an easy drive with a surfaced road all the way. When you arrive at the town, drive through an arch across the road and into the area with a few cafes and shops to your left. Here you will be approached by touts, you can ignore them and drive straight on, the road at that point turns into a piste but it is easy to drive, after a few hundred meters there are signs for camping on the left hand side, the one we stayed at was called little prince and was very nice,then follow the track toward the campsites, just to the right of the camping is a parking area, you can wild camp there if you like. The dunes are right there ! We walked into the dunes and climbed the large dune you can see from the car park, not an easy task ! But the view from the top is fantastic. We also visited Mhamid and took a 4x4 to the dunes at erg chagaga, this was a full days outing as the large dunes are about 40k from the town,but it was a great day out.We were camped on a small site called camping la'boussole and the owner Kalifa, arranged the excursion...
