3. Sahara dunes, Morocco
The Sahara is mostly impassible due to its unfriendly climate and frequent sand storms. The most user-friendly part of the Sahara is accessible from the northern edge of Morocco. The foot of the Merzouga Dunes is the ultimate location for star-gazing, totally free of light pollution.
You can take a camel safari into the dunes, camp out for the night, and let the local Saharawi men entertain you with drums and singing around the campfire while gazing at the stars. You can trek with Berbers from the town of Zagoura, or camp out in Tazzarine where runners from all over the world complete the week-long Marathon des Sables every spring
