- Tours detail
Day 1: Fez / Merzougua (camel ride and overnight in the desert)
We will meet you at your Fez riad or hotel, depart and transport (8 hours) over the Middle Atlas mountains through the cedar forests of Ifrane, Midelt and the Ziz gorges towards Sahara, until the Erg Chebbi dunes appear on the horizon. Our destination is the auberge (small inn) 29km from Merzouga, where you meet your camel guide and ride into the dunes at sunset to the bivouac (camp). Upon arrival you will have a traditional tagine dinner prepared under the evening stars. Climb the dunes and watch the moon rise before retiring to your bed in the nomad wool tent
Day 2: Merzougua / Todra gorges
Return by camel at sunrise to the auberge for breakfast and shower before going to Tinehir. Along the way we can visit a fossil workshop for a closer look at Sahara’s wonderful varieties of ancient life. We'll walk through Todra Gorge, where sheer limestone walls rise to 300 m in its narrowest part. After lunch you can wander with a guide through palmeries, villages, gardens, and kasbahs for a close look at traditional Berber ways of life. Evening visit the market in Tinehir and old kasbah quarter. Stay in an old kasbah with evening Moroccan dinner by the pool.
Day 3: Todra gorges /Marrakech
This morning we'll drive through the Valley of Roses, famous for the Persian rose oil, and the Skoura oasis before stopping for lunch at Ouarzazate. Next we’ll explore the World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou. This village of clustered Berber Kasbahs has been used as a backdrop for more than 20 films and was one of the most important fortress strongholds on the old Salt Road where caravans brought slaves, gold, ivory and salt from Saharan Africa to Marrakech and beyond. Descending the High Atlas mountains Tizi nTichka pass to Marrakech, we will have time to stop and enjoy impressive landscapes, and coffee and fresh-squeezed orange juice breaks. Arrival in Marrakech at approximately 7 p.m. You will need to book a hotel in Marrakech this night or we can book a medina riad including breakfast.
THREE DAYS / TWO NIGHTS
There is a lot to see in the desert and besides touring and camel trekking, our five days allow time to immerse yourself in the most interesting sites and history of the Old Salt Road, spend more time in the dunes and experience the culture of desert Nomads and Berbers.
NB : Each one of our offers can be adapted to suit individual needs. The Sahara is a mysterious, magical and powerful experience. You will be accompanied by local and experienced nomad guides as well as knowledgeable drivers who can increase your enjoyment in gaining a feel for this special place.
