4 days desert tour from marrakech to zagora and merzouga desert

Day 1 : Marrakech-Ait ben Haddou-Ouarzazate-draa valley-Zagora desert

Departing from Marrakech, you will head South through the full length of the Atlas Mountains on the Tizi n’Tichka Pass at 2600m, a winding, panoramic road with unrivalled views.

You will make your first stop at the ancient Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, bridging the mountains with the desert. Following this you will visit Ouarzazate - the gateway town to the Sahara.

The terrain changes drastically from here - from the height and beauty of the mountains to the arid moonscape of the Sahara, where you will eventually reach your destination of Zagora via Draa Valley. You will travel to the Berber camp on a camel in time for sunset, and experience a Berber evening with incredible and compulsory stargazing.

Day 2: Zagora-Ouarzazate-Skoura oasis-Rose valley-dades valley

Experiencing sunrise from the comfortable saddle of a camel, you will begin to make your way back to Marrakech. You will stop in Ouarzazate in time for lunch and meet the connecting minibus/4x4 to Dades Gorges for the second stage of your trip where you can relax in the tranquility of the nature that surrounds you. You will be staying in a guesthouse overlooking the dades valley for the night.

Day 3:Dades Valley-Tinghir-Todra gorge-Erfoud-Merzouga desert-Erg chebbi

Onwards to another Gorge - this time the mighty Todra - where you will spend some time, before heading down to the Sahara that you may only have seen in films. Erg Chebbi are the giant sand dunes that surround the town of Merzouga - a Berber town where you will spend your second night. You will take the traditional method of transport - camel - to the Berber camp in time for sunset, and enjoy an evening of Berber hospitality under the stars of the Sahara.

Day 4:Merzouga –Errissani-Alnif-Ouarzazte-Marrakech

After breakfast you will take another camel trek for sunrise before making your journey up north and once again through the Atlas Mountains - arriving in the bright lights of Marrakech in the evening.
