Merzouga Luxury Desert Tour

Day 1: MARRAKECH to DADES GORGES

Your guide will meet you after breakfast at your hotel accommodation in Marrakech, or at the MENARA MARRAKECH AIRPORT holding a sign with your name. We will head to the High Atlas through the Tizi'ntichka Pass (2260 m.) Along a hairpin road, up these spectacular mountains, you will see small villages of fortified houses built into the side of mountains, as well as cascading waterfalls from the melting snow. We will stop for some  tea made of local herbs so you can taste the environment. Then, onto the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, for lunch. This village was added to the World Heritage List of UNESCO. It is entirely made of mud, straw bale and adobe. The area is also a very well known location for Hollywood producers for it’s photogenic and ancient setting. Many international films such as 'Gladiator', 'Babel', 'Lawrence of Arabia', and many, many more were filmed here. We head back to Ouarzazate, along the road of the thousand Kasbahs, then continue to the Dades Valley, where we shall dine and stay in a rather charming hotel.

Day 2: DADES VALLEY to DESERT MERZOUGA

After an early breakfast we will take a a little walk around the Dades Gorge, then drive back to the road of a thousand Kasbah, through the village of Tineghier with its Jewish Quarter, to reach the Todra for a stop. We will walk around to discover the beauty of this region. Then, onto Merzouga via Rissani and Erfoud. We arrive in time to climb on top of a camel for a desert safari along the dunes to reach the foot of Erg Chebbi, to spend the night in our well-equipped SAHARA LUXURY CAMPS. We will have a Moroccan dinner entertained by a nomadic Berber drum party. If we are lucky and the sky is clear, you will be able to see the Milky Way and a trillion dazzling stars.

Day 3: MERZIUGA to OUARZAZATE

The next day, early risers will get to see the sun rise from the top of the dunes, near to the borders of Algeria in our sight. In no rush we'll head back to the camp on our friendly camels.After breakfast we drive in the direction of Rissani, the old Sijilmassa, the economic capital of Morocco where caravans used to deliver the goods, gathered from all over Morocco. Then it's back to Ouarzazate in the direction of Kob and the Draa Valley. After some tea made with local herbs, we head back to the camp where we have the option to chose plenty of activities such as quad riding, 4x4 safaris, cooking class with a local nomad and trekking in the beautiful sand dunes before heading back to the tent for a candle lit dinner and overnight in your luxury tent.

Day 4: OUARZAZATE TO MARRAKECH

After breakfast in the beautiful sunrise of the Sahara we drive to Ouarzazate, the Kasbah Taouirt and movie studios Atlas Studios - one of Africa's most well known studios. From there, we head to the oasis of Fint, near Ouarzazate. Then continue through the neck and Tichka for lunch in a small village. After that we head back to the 'Red City' - Marrakech.
