The colors of the Sahara are more dramatic than we expected. The array of golden-orange that paints the sand dunes is both impressive and ever-changing. We visited Morocco several years ago as the last stop on our around the world adventures.

Interesting Information on the Sahara
- The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world. Overall, it is the world’s third largest after the cold deserts of Antarctica and the Arctic.
- It covers an area of 9.2 million square kilometres in parts of Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan and Tunisia. I shot all of the photos on this page in Morocco between Ait Ben Haddou and Merzouga.
- “Sahara desert” is a redundant name as “Sahara” is Arabic for desert.
