DAY 1: MARRAKECH – ZAGORA (6 HOUR TRIP)
Our 4 day tour through the Moroccan desert from Marrakech leaves from your hotel or riad at 07h00 and the first area we will visit will be through the Atlas Mountains on the Tizi Ntichka pass; the pass rises 2260 meters above sea level, so the view is quite splendid. Several stops are made to see the stage and take pictures. We arrived in Ouarzazate and visited Kasbahs Taourirte. Lunch is before continuing to Zagora.
The Draa River has given life to a huge oasis about 200 meters in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. This valley has been coveted by nomads for years. Our advice is that on the way you stop at Tinzouline to see the graffiti on the rocks.
In addition, all the way there, you will find many groves of palm trees that will shade you between Kasbahs and Ksours full of fields of corn, barley, vegetables and henna plantings. Dinner and spend the night in Zagora.
DAY 2: ZAGORA – MERZOUGA (6 HOUR TRIP)
Today, we will cross the volcanic peaks of the Atlas Mountains, going southeast through the lunatic landscapes passing the oasis in the middle of nowhere. The idea is to stop for lunch in the oasis of Alnif, where we will eat something and we will gather strength before continuing to Merzouga until we reach Erg Chebbi where his camp of the Sahara desert is located.
Once we reach the place, we will change our means of transport to camels to enjoy camel trekking in Erg Chebbi and witness one of the most sought after views of the planet: the dramatic sunset of Erg Chebbi over the changing dunes of color! Then, with the task already done, we will return to our camp for a delicious Moroccan dinner under the light of the stars while the local nomads entertain us with their drums.
DAY 3: MERZOUGA – DADES (6 HOUR TRIP)
After having breakfast in the desert camp, we have to walk through the 1001 Kasbahs passing rivers, oases and fortified Kasbahs to Tinghir, where you can enjoy a walk along the Todgha river bank towards the Todrha canyons. At this point, we will make a small stop to lunch and, thus, be able to continue early in the afternoon and walk through Valle Dades. At this point, it is where you will pass along some fortified Kasbahs and Berber Villas with the background sunset towards the Barrancas Dades before returning to your hotel, dining and spending the night.
DAY 4: DADES – MARRAKECH (6 HOUR TRIP)
After breakfast, we will walk along the Vale de las Rosas towards Kalaa Megouna where you can visit a rose water cooperative and learn how locals manufacture rosewater essence perfumes.
We will continue to the Skoura oasis, considered one of the largest oases in the South and visit one of the Kasbahs there (weather permitting) before continuing to Ouarzazate for lunch.
Early in the afternoon, we will go to Marrakech through Tizi Ntichka and your driver will take you directly to your hotel or riad to end your 4 day journey through the desert from Marrakech will end.
