Itinerary

DAY 1

Departing from Marrakech, you will head South through the full length of the Atlas Mountains on the Tizi n’Tichka Pass at 2600m, a winding, panoramic road with unrivalled views.

Your first stop will be at the ancient mountain-side Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. Known for its movie-set potential (recently featured in Game of Thrones), this place is truly incredible as it acts as a gateway from the mountains to the desert. Following this you will visit Ouarzazate – the “doors of the Sahara desert”.

Drive along the long palm tree oasis that produces dates and is known for it’s trade routes, volcanic rock and date palmeries in the Draa Valley. Witness the terrain drastically change from a lush valley oasis and rugged mountains to the vastness of the Sahara. You will eventually reach your destination of Zagora. From here you will travel to the Berber camp on a camel in time for sunset, and experience a Berber evening with incredible stargazing. Music and dancing may be involved!

DAY 2

After waking early to experience one of the most magnificent sunrises of your life, you will travel back by camel to Zagora and then on the way back to Marrakech by minivan. A brief stop will be made in Quarzazate for lunch where there may be an opportunity to visit the film studios and Kasbah, time permitting. Finally you will make your way back through the Atlas mountains returning to Marrakech.
