Walking the Sahara dunes

Jump to last reply

I will leaving for Morocco in 3 weeks and have read all the posts here on the country.
Everything has been so helpful. Many fodorites have talked about walking on the dunes in the desert. I plan to do this as well.

Here's the question - what kind of shoes are required to do this? I am bringing sandals (with and without straps) but wasn't planning on any type of sneaker or hiking boots in order to keep my luggage as light as possible. Some people have even walked barefoot! If we walk in the early morning, the sand might not be too hot.

What do you think - can I get away with the sandals or not?
