MARRAKECH - DESERT TOUR : 3 dyas/2 nights

3 day Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. On this route we leave Marrakech on a trail that will lead us through the High Atlas from the ‘Red City’ to the dunes of Erg Chebbi. We will tavel via the Tizi n Tichka pass at a height of 2260 metres altitude to reach Ouarzazate and then on to the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou (UNESCO World Heritage Site). In Ouarzazate you will visit Dades Gorge where you will spend a night, on the way visiting many small villages.

After a night at Dades Gorge you will travel on to Todra, where you will visit the impressive gorges and see the amazing river landscape. The journey then takes us on to Merzouga where we leave our vehicles and change to camels to trek into the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Here you will spend a night in a typical Berber camp, sleep in tents or out in the open under the stars. Leaving early the following morning we will take a vehicle back to Marrakech.

DAY1 :

Pick up from Marrakech at 8am and travel over the Tizi n'Tichka Pass while enjoying views of the mountains and of the Berber Villages on the way. Stop for lunch and visit Ait Benhaddou. Pass through Ouarzazate and continue towards the Valley of Roses and the Dades valley, Skoura oasis, the valley of a thousand Kasbahs and Dades Gorge. Stay overnight at a hotel in the gorge.


After breakfast at the hotel we'll depart to the Todra Gorge, a massive fault, rising to 300m in a narrow valley. After lunch in the gorge, we'll go to the desert at Merzouga, with stops along the great sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. In Merzouga you will take a camel ride (about one hour and a half) in order to get to the camp in the dunes.
