Overnight Desert Camp & Camel Trek
Diverse Scenery, Wild Macaques, Kasbahs, Film Studios, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Berber Towns and a chance to explore the Sahara by camel and spend the night under the stars in a Nomad Fire Camp or Luxury Desert Camp. This tour offers huge variety and a whole world of experiences in just 3 or 4 days.
Day 1 – Ait Ben Haddou – Ouarzazate – Dades
We will collect you from your riad in Marrakech and start your Morocco Tour from Marrakech to Fes by heading to the Atlas Mountains through the Tizi n‘Tichka pass. This is a spectacular and dramatic road providing amazing views of the snow-covered peaks of the Atlas mountains. You will see Berber villages and people living a very traditional way of life.
We then arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage cultural site of Ait BenHaddou. It was once an important stop along the caravan routes that from the Sahara. An important site, this is the best preserved Kasbah in Morocco.
We then move onto Ouarzazate, which is the film capital of Morocco with one of the largest film studios in the world. Famous for Lawrence of Arabia, Asterix and Obelisk and Babel amongst many others. The studios are open to the public or if you prefer we can visit Amridil Kasbah, the 17th-century living museum featured on the 50-dirham note.
We will drive through the Valley of the Roses, filled with wild Damask rose trees, a very important crop to the local population. Finally onto the wild landscape of Dades Valley known as the Country of the Figs.
Overnight Dades Valley
Day 2 – Todra Gorge – Merzouga
After breakfast, your tour of Morocco continues and we will depart to explore the Dades Valley before arriving at the charming oasis city of Tineghir with its 2000-year-old mellah (Jewish quarter).
Continuing on to Todra Gorge we have free time to trek the 300m canyons before lunch. After visiting the fossil workshop, we will head for the Erg Chebbi sand dunes, indisputably one of Morocco’s most stunning sites. Enjoy the adventure of a camel ride to the oasis where our desert camp is located and after a moonlit dinner and drumming around the camp fire, sleep in Berber tents or perhaps star gazing under the magical Saharan night sky.
Overnight in Berber Camp (Standard Camp and Luxury Camp available)
Day 3 – Midelt – Fes
We recommend rising early to watch the sunrise over the dunes after which we will return by camel trek to our hotel on the dune line where you can shower and enjoy a huge breakfast spread before we depart to Fes along the scenic Ziz Valley Gorge to Midelt.
In the cedar forests of Azrou we will hopefully get to see the wild Barbary Apes, a species of macaque. Stretch your legs here and enjoy the chance to photograph the monkeys
