Camels in the Draa wadi at M'Hamid el Ghizlane, Morocco.

M'Hamid el Ghizlane

The last major stop on my visit to Morocco, or at least the last newly visited place, was M'Hamid el Ghizlane on the edge of the Sahara desert.

Generally referred to simply as M'Hamid, the town is at the end of the paved roads, southeast of Marrakech just about 25 kilometers from the Algerian border.

I would relax here for a few pleasant days, and also go on an overnight trip into the desert.

From here I would return for a few nights each in Marrakech and Tangier before returning to Casablanca to fly home.
