Desert Amazing Tour : 3 days – 2 nights - from Marrakech to Merzouga

Day 1: Marrakech to Dades Gorges via Ouarzazate and Rose Valley

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 9.00am. Drive to the World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, crossing the spectacular Tizi n’Tichka Pass of the High Atlas mountains. You’ll pass through lots of Berber villages, and once you’re in the desert, you’ll see riverside oases and barren hillsides dotted with kasbahs (fortified dwellings that house families and their livestock). Ait Benhaddou is an ancient fortified city containing countless kasbahs and has been the atmospheric subject of numerous hollywood movies (The Mummy, Gladiator, Alexander, Lawrence of Arabia...) You will be able to walk amongst the old buildings and walk to the top of the fortification if you have the energy. Later on, you’ll head through the Valley of the Roses to Dades Gorge where you will enjoy a Moroccan dinner and evening at a small hotel with beautiful views of the Dades valley. Overnight in Dades.

Day 2: Dades Gorges to Erg Chebbi via Toudra Gorges and Merzouga

Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer from the Dades Valley to Todra Gorge - a massive fault dividing the High Atlas mountains, rising up 300 metres in a narrow valley with palmeries and Berber villages. After lunch you’ll head further into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga to pick up supplies for your desert trip. You will then drive on to a kasbah to pick up your camel. At sunset, you’ll trek for an hour-and-a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner, and sleep under the stars or in tents at a desert camp.

Day 3: Erg Chebbi back to Marrakech via Skoura and the Atlas Mountains

Wake to a desert sunrise and then return to the kasbah by camel. You will then have a chance to freshen up and enjoy a breakfast. You will leave for Marrakech travelling across the High Atlas Mountains. You’ll arrive in Marrakech in the evening around 6.00pm.
