Day 1: Marrakech – Tizi N’Tichka – Ait Benhaddou – Ouarzazate – Dades Gorges:
You will start your trip from your hotel or riad in Marrakech, and drive to the Dades Gorges via the dramatic twists and turns of the Tizi-n-Tichka pass in the Atlas Mountains. Enjoy far-reaching views of the traditional High Atlas Berber village of Telouet. Continue to Ait Benhaddou to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the fortified village (Ksour). After lunch in Ait Benhaddou or Ouarzazate, continue to the Dades Valley for an overnight stay in a riad or hotel in the Dades Gorge. Marvel at the geological formations of the scenic area, characterized by a deep and dramatic canyon.
Day 2: Dades Gorges – Tenghir – Todra Gorges – Tinjdad – Erfoud – Merzouga:
After your breakfast at the hotel, leave the Dades Gorge for Erg Chebbi at the gateway to the Sahara Desert. See Berber villages scattered along the way, and pass through Tinjdad, Jorf, and Erfoud to get a feel for the Saharan landscape. See the oasis of Tafilalet before your arrival at Merzouga. Pause to relax at Merzouga for a few moments before you climb onto the back of a camel and cross the sand dunes en route to a nomadic Berber camp. See the sand dunes and desert landscape from a timeless perspective as you listen to the drums of the desert camp in the middle of the Sahara. Take photos of the dramatic sunset from the top of a high dune. Then, go to the camp to spend the night in a nomad tent.
Day 3: Camel Trek Back to Merzouga – Atlas Mountains – Return to Marrakech:
Wake early to see the beautiful desert sunrise. Then, return to Merzouga by camel. Upon arrival, you will be served breakfast and given time to shower at the hotel before the return transfer to Marrakech. Pass the authentic Berber villages of the Atlas Mountains, such as Tinjdad, Tenghir, and Boumalene-du-Dades. Arrive in Marrakech in the evening for the end of the tour services.
Please prepare for this advantage in the desert, bring sun lotion, sunglasses, and a sunhat, especially in the summertime.
You can do the Quad Bike in the desert if you want just to mention it on the booking.
If you can not ride the camel you can pay extra for 4X4.
