Marrakech Express Travel
Erfoud, north east of Zagora in the oasis region of Tafilalt was one of the last centres of resistance against the French Protectorate, maintaining resistance till 1932. Afterwards the French kept a wary eye on the local tribes, building a garrison in the town and creating an administrative centre.
Today it has become a prime spot for heading into the desert and visiting the Erg Chebbi dunes near Merzouga. Here are several hotels and a basic camping site available.
