Erg Chegaga is one of two major Saharan ergs of the Sahara in Morocco. This dunes are located in the Drâa-Tafilalet area about 50 km west of the rural town of M'Hamid El Ghizlane, just 24 kilometers from the border with Algeria. Because it is relatively difficult to access – it is only accessible by 4x4, camel or on foot.
