Pick up from your accommodation in Marrakech, your journey starts with a drive through the High Atlas Mountains via the Tizi n’Ticka pass. Witness the landscape change as you are taken past many Berber villages and on to Ouarzazate – the ‘Hollywood of Africa’. A stop here for lunch will give you time to visit the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, an ancient fortified city which has featured in many famous films such as Indiana Jones and Lawrence of Arabia. After lunch you’ll head towards the colossal Dades gorge, stopping in the Valley of the Roses along the way. If you are lucky enough to visit during the second week of May you will see the beautiful Rose Festival. After witnessing a spectacular sunset over the desert landscape, your night will be spent within the heart of the Dades Gorge.
After breakfast, your journey along the road of 1000 Kasbahs to the Todra Gorge begins . This massive 300m fault divides the High Atlas Mountains, with a lush palm tree oasis and quite berber villages running along the valley – it is said to be the most beautiful gorge in Morocco. After a quick pit-stop in Erfoud, your journey into the Sahara begins! Arrving at the gateway town to the desert, Merzouga, you will pick up your supplies for your trip into the desert. As you ride a camel into the heart of the Sahara, experience one of the most magical sunsets you will ever see. Enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner cooked by your Berber hosts on arrival at the Bivouac camp, and enjoy a night of music and star gazing as you fall asleep under a blanket of stars.
Wake up early to catch the sunrise above the dunes of Erg Chebbi as you return to your hotel in Merzouga by camel. After freshening up and enjoying a traditional breakfast, you will head back towards Marrakech, once again crossing through the High Atlas Mountains. Take this opportunity to snap some photos of sights missed on first journey through this spectacular landscape. You’ll arrive to Marrakech in the evening around 6.00 pm.
