Itinerary

Following breakfast, meet your English-speaking driver at your hotel or riad to begin your 3-day desert excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga. Our journey kicks off with traversing the High Atlas Mountains, passing through a succession of Berber villages. Upon crossing the Tizi Ntichka peak, we proceed to the UNESCO world heritage village of Ait Ben Haddou—a collection of recently restored Kasbahs renowned for being cinematic backdrops in films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and the Jewel of the Nile.

After a local restaurant lunch, our expedition continues to Ouarzazate and then to the Skoura oasis. Here, a halt at the Kasbah museum of Amridil provides insights into Moroccan Kasbah architecture, the lifestyle of its inhabitants, and the irrigation systems in the Moroccan oases. Our journey progresses to Klaa Mgouna, celebrated for its Damascus roses cultivation, concluding in the Dades Valley where we spend our initial night at a welcoming local guest house or hotel.

Following breakfast, we will travel down the famous 1001 Kasbahs road to the Berber village of Tinghir. After arriving at Tinghir, enjoy a leisurely one-hour walk along the riverside oasis that leads to the Todgha canyons. After lunch at a nearby restaurant, we continue our journey to the holy town of Rissani, which is the ancestral home of the present royal family of Morocco. Should we have the opportunity, we may visit the tomb of Moulay Ali Cherif, the Alouettes' grandfather and the ancestor of Morocco's King Mohammed VI.

We head toward Merzouga in the middle of the day, when there will be an important shift in the scenery. When we arrive, we'll meet up with our camel caravans for a thrilling hike across the Erg Chebbi sand dunes, where we'll be able to take in the breathtaking display of a sunset that changes the surrounding shades. We'll arrive at our desert camp just before evening, where you can have a Moroccan meal outside while listening to the rhythms of the local nomads beating their drums. Stay the night in your own private camper in the desert.

Your hosts at the desert camp will get you up early if you would want to see the first light of the day. We'll leave for Ouarzazate after breakfast, where we'll stop for lunch before continuing on to Marrakech. The three-day desert adventure from Marrakech ends late in the afternoon at your riad or hotel.
