We will ride camels to a desert camp guided by an experienced camel guide in the middle of Erg Chebbi. The desert camel trek takes about 90 minutes to reach the camp. Then, we’ll enjoy the sunset over the dunes, and dinner will be served near the campfire. We will spend this night in desert tents in the desert.
We’ll start exploring the desert area by visiting the Gnawa village of Khamlia, where we will learn more about Gnawa music. Afterward, we’ll meet Nomad families still living under Berber tents in the Sahara desert.
We visit Rissani to explore its local souk. Later, we will drive back to the village of Merzouga. From here, we ride camels for about 90 minutes to arrive at the desert camp where we will spend this night in the dunes. We will enjoy the desert sunset and dinner will be served at the camp.
We will watch the sunrise in the desert and ride camels back to the village. After breakfast in the Riad, you’ll leave for Rissani, Tinghir, and Todra gorges – the highest, narrowest gorges in Morocco.
After lunch in the heart of the gorge, we’ll drive through the Dades Valley, where you’ll see the majestic sand castles and the amazing rock formations known as “monkey toes”. Overnight accommodation will be in a fancy hotel overlooking the Dades valley.
After breakfast in the hotel, you will travel through the Dades Valley towards Kalaa M’gouna and Ouarzazate. The route through Dades Valley is the way of the thousand kasbahs – providing numerous opportunities to take some of your best photographic shots of the trip in both the valley rose roses and cinema city of Ouarzazate passing by Ait Benhaddou Kasbah.
It is the largest Kasbah in Morocco, built by Thami El Glaoui, one of the last Berber chieftains. It used to be one of his stops during his long travel from the Sahara to Marrakech. It also is one of the UNESCO heritage sites. After that, we will shift the way to cross the High Atlas mountains full of panoramic views and attractive Berber villages all along the way to Marrakech.
We will visit important places in Marrakesh: its architecture, the ancient Medina, and the grand historical monuments (tombs, mosques, Kasbahs…). We can’t leave Marrakesh without experiencing the Jamaa El Fna Plaza. We stay here in a local hotel in the capital of tourism in Morocco.
