We are current ly planning our first trip to Morocco and of course we will be going to Merzouga and the sand dunes. We are thinking of doing an organized overnight excursion in the desert in a berber tent and wanted to know if there are any dangers we should be aware of while in the desert, for example how likely will it be to encounter scorpions and where should we be most carefull of them? What about other insects, animals etc.
Any information you can provide would be great. Thanks.
