How to get to Merzouga
You can rent-a-car in Marrakech or get a direct bus. Supratours bus company operates daily trips from Marrakech until the Sahara Desert via Ouarzazate. This journey takes about 12 hours, leaving Marrakech at 08:30 am and arriving at Merzouga village at 9 pm. You can also start your journey in Ouarzazate with the same bus that is coming from Marrakech and passing Ouarzazate around 12pm. If you need accommodation while in the city check out my hotel in Ouarzazate.
