Day 1: Marrakech – Atlas Mountains – Ouarzazate.

Today we start 5 Days Sahara Desert Tours from Marrakech driving towards Ouarzazate via the Tizi n’Tichka mountain pass. We enjoy the beautiful scenery over the High Atlas mountains, we pass few Berber villages before we get to Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, the largest Kasbah in Morocco. It was built by the last Berber chieftain El Glaoui Et-Hami in the late 19th century; it is now a UNESCO matrimonial historical site, which today still houses many Glaoui family members. Lunch is by the Kasbah before we continue to Ouarzazate, “ the Hollywood of Africa”. Here you have the option of visiting the studios to see props used in some movies you might have seen, such as “Gladiator”, “Jewel of the Nile” “the last temptation of Christ” and “The Sahara”. We will spend the first night of our private Morocco tour in traditional Moroccan riad with dinner and breakfast.

    Really enjoyed this trip – we were lucky to be part of a great group. The trip introduces you to a lot of Morocco, from cities to the coast, from desert to mountains.
