Day 1 : Marrakech – Ait ben haddou – Dades Valley
We pick you up from your hotel in Marrakech in the morning and drive to the lush oasis of the Dades Gorge via the High Atlas Tizi’n’Tichka mountain pass and the World Heritage Site of Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, one of Morocco’s most spectacular ksour (dwellings) that once guarded the lucrative caravan route through the Atlas Mountains.
We continue through Ouarzazate and Kelaa Mgouna (Rose Valley) and leave the main route at Boumalne Dades, driving along this oasis valley gorge of the River Dades past the ruined hilltop Kasbahs, valley-floor gardens and the strange rock formations of the Tamnalt Hills. Dinner is at the Hotel.
Day 2: Dades Valley — Todra Gorge — Merzouga
On the second day, we move from Dades Gorge to Merzouga via the Todra Gorge (the highest oasis valley gorge in Morocco). Arriving in the desert, your guide and camels will be waiting to carry you across the sandy dunes of the Moroccan Sahara. We go for a camel trek as the sun sets across the desert landscape, for approximately 2 hrs.
We take you to your desert camp and home for the night: a traditional nomad tent. At your desert shelter, your camels are hobbled and mint tea is served. A simple meal of Tagine is freshly prepared for you by your guide. Dinner at night is served in a Berber tent.
Day 3: Merzouga — Fez
Before the sun rises, you will ride the camels back to the hotel and enjoy the sunrise from the top of one of the sand dunes. After a shower and breakfast, we will leave Merzouga for Fez. On the way, we pass through Rissani, Erfoud, Errachidia and Medilt.
We’ll stop for lunch and pictures of wild monkeys on the Cedar forests of Azrou before arriving in Fez, where we will take you to your Riad or hotel.
