Dear,
Unfortunately we do not organize 2 days to Merzouga because it is very far and a minimum of 3 days is required. We have available a 2 days trip from Marrakech to Zagora which offers an overnight stay in the desert camp. But the dunes are not as high as those of Erg Chebbi and Erg Chegaga.

It is true that there are some companies online that offer this trip in 2 days like the following:

Day 1: Marrakech – High Atlas –- Ait Benhaddou – Ouarzazate – Merzouga desert

Day 2: Erg chebbi –Dades valley – Ouarzazate – Marrakech

It's a bit weird! because it is very far and you will not really enjoy the trip. You will spend most of your time in the car. Even the three day trip is a bit long drive on the last day.

It is almost 9 hours (550.8 km) drive every day, it is just impossible to visit all the attractions such as Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, Todra gorges, Dades, and witness the sunset in the desert.

I don't recommend doing this trip in 2 days
