Our private driver pick up you from your hotel and we will start our 3 Days Desert Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga through the spectacular Tizi n’ Tichka Pass of the High Atlas Mountains. Your first stop will be to visit two Kasbahs, Ait Ben Haddou (a UNESCO World Heritage site, which has been used as the location for over 20 different movies) and Kasbah Telouet.

Driving between these two Kasbahs you will have another quick stop to take a look at the Salt Caves. After this stop, we will drive onwards, passing through many Berber villages, being able to observe the Skoura oasis, Kalaat Mâgouna, with groves of spectacular olive trees and barren hillsides that are clustered among Kasbahs and traditional Berber houses. After lunch, you will drive further to the Valley of the Roses, with beautiful views of the Dades Valley (also known as the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs). You will spend your night in a hotel in Dades Valley with dinner included.



After breakfast at your hotel, our 3 days Marrakech to Merzouga desert tour continue, hop back aboard your minivan and travel out along the famous ‘Road of 1000 Kasbahs’ to nearby Tinghir. Stroll through the oasis to the mighty Todra Gorge, where a deep crevasse in the orange limestone provides spectacular views, then sit down to lunch at your leisure (own expense) in one of the local cafes. In the afternoon, visit the holy town of Rissani — the birthplace of Morocco’s ruling royal family and the age-old capital of the Tafilalt region.

Continue on to Merzouga, a small village sitting on the borders of the Sahara Desert. Meet your camel caravan and, with the sun slowly moving across the afternoon sky, set off toward Erg Chebbi and your camp in the heart of the desert. With traditional music from local nomads to entertain you, enjoy dinner and an evening under the stars before retiring to bed.



Following an early-morning stroll before breakfast to enjoy sunrise among the sand dunes for an amazing Sahara desert journey, ride your camel back to Merzouga and meet your driver for the start of your return journey to Marrakech. Stop for lunch in Ouarzazate (own expense), then head onward through the spectacular scenery of the High Atlas Mountains. Arrive back at your Marrakech accommodation in the mid-evening to conclude your Desert Tour from Marrakech.

    Incredible Tour! Although you do spend a lot of time in the van traveling from one place to the other, during the trip you get to enjoy the fascinating variety of Moroccan landscapes, culinary culture, and Bedouin traditions. The guides are super enthusiastic, really trying to offer you the best experience and give you a vast amount of info about the country. Absolutely worth it!
