Ouzina desert is village which is located in the desert of Morocco, in the southeastern part of the country, in the region of Erachidia-Tafilalet. It is 35 km from Taouz and 72 km from Merzouga.
The village is small, inhabited by about 27 families and its environment has the privilege of being a pure desert where it has not yet been massified by tourism. It is a place where you can appreciate the silence, the magic and the peace that only exist in places like this.
As we arrive from the track that connects Taouz to Ouzina we can see how the landscape gradually changes, disappearing the aridity and giving way to a greener environment with vegetation that contrasts with the beautiful orange dunes. Dunes that, in turn, contrast with the black mountains that characterize the area.
At the bottom of its dunes there are a number of peoples who still today retain their ancestral traditions and their unique customs of the Sahara desert. And if you have in mind Merzouga, Zagora or Ouarzazate, you can do it from Ouzina through the slopes. The landscapes are exceptional and you will have an adventure to tell.
Ouzina offers you the most absolute peace of the Moroccan desert, the authenticity of its people and the possibility of making desert excursions and adventurous trips in the surroundings. Here you will find all kinds of terrain, dunes that have little to envy to those of Merzouga, 4X4 slopes, dry waterways, hammocks, chotts, oasis…
