Registration process

The Bivouac

We have the chance to run in one of the most beautiful places in Morocco … Merzouga.

Our main bivouac, in the heart of the big sand dunes, has all the comfort of a luxury camp. Bed, toilet, shower, eating area and beautiful places where you can drink a mint tea after the stages or admire the stars in peace, feet in the sand.

Our second bivouac, where we will spend two nights, will be more basic to give you the real experience of camping in the desert.

TZT Merzouga

This region of the desert is famous for its incredible dunes, the highest in the country, but also for the different sports competitions that take place there every year. Some of the best known are the Raid 4L Trophy, the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles and formerly the Rallye Paris-Dakar.
