Opinions needed for overnight Erg Chebbi in March

Jump to last reply

I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Morocco for spring 2015. I have read that spring is a good time to visit, but Lonely Planet says don't bother doing an overnight in the desert after February due to possible wind storms. But it sounds like February could be wet and cold in other parts of the country that we'll be visiting. So I'm trying to find a balance. From reading these boards, it looks like many people have done the camel ride into the desert at all different times of the year. I don't want to chance not being able to do this, but I also don't want to risk sacrificing the rest of the trip to bad weather. Any opinions? I will probably post this on the Lonely Planet forum also.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
Laurie
