The Sahara Desert, the “King of Deserts” spans over many countries in northern Africa. There are places off-limits in this vast sandy land, but there are also places that will make a trip to the Sahara worthwhile.

The best way to gain entry to the Sahara is probably through Morocco. While Royal Air Maroc is the only airline that features direct flights from the U.S., you can also get there by Air France, Qatar Airways, Delta, Condor, Turkish Airlines, and Norwegian, as long as you are okay with a layover.

It takes about 20 hours (if you factor in layovers) to fly into Marrakesh to visit the Sahara Desert. You can also fly to the Sahara, by way of Egypt, and book travel through Delta, United, or American Airlines. Once you land in Cairo, you can take a bus to the desert.

You can also go through a tour company to plan a Saharan adventure. That way, you don’t have to plan the entire trip yourself. Tours to the Sahara are often reasonably priced, so you can go on a Saharan holiday without breaking the bank.

Don’t visit the Sahara in the summer, or between June and September, as it can be unpleasantly hot. If you travel between November and February, the temperatures can plummet at night to uncomfortably cold and freezing numbers. Also, dust storms prevail from February to April. Therefore, the best time to go is May or October.
