breakfast with an overlook at the desert

There are some places in the world where getting there is quite an adventure. But there are some others, in which the departure is a punishment for the soul. And that happens precisely when one arrives at the Auberge Kasbah Azalay, the small Hotel run by the brothers Ait Bahdout, in the Moroccan city of Merzouga at the gates of the Sahara desert.

The city of Merzouga is a regular destination for lovers of car or motorcycle raids, as well as for those who want to have a first contact with the desert. A city that lives for tourism for some years now, and that is improving the quantity and quality of the services offered to the traveler.

Gone are the years of the epic when traveling to the desert was a real adventure. Today you can find and enjoy electric light, roads, GSM connection and even wifi in hotels. But that does not stop it from being a very charming destination. Being able to walk through the desert and watch a sunset is one of those moments that are not easily forgotten. And is that Merzouga is a destination that catches, especially if you stay at the Auberge Kasbah Azlay, the small hotel named after the first Caravan that crossed the Sahara in which Youssef makes you feel at home.

If you want to relax, that's a good place. Sleeping and getting up with the landscape of the dunes is an unforgettable experience. But if you are looking for emotions, then Youssef will also propose camel trips, nights in the desert, or crossings with 4x4. And at the end of the day, enjoy your excellent food and sympathy.
