Itinerary

01

Day 1

Marrakech - Ait Benhaddou - Ouarzazate - Berber Camp (D)
After being picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech, you will start travelling south through the beautiful Atlas Mountains over the Tishka Pass, at 2600m. Enjoy a winding, panoramic road with breathtaking views. Your first stop will be at the ancient Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, a bridge in between the mountains and the desert. Next, you will make a stopover in Ouarzazate - the door to the Sahara. In the past, the city was a crossroads for African traders travelling to the northern cities of Morocco and Europe. From here the nature around you will start changing drastically. You will see the terrains of the high and rich mountains changing into the arid Sahara moonscape as you reach Zagora via Draa Valley. Once there, jump on a camel and start your ride to the Berber camp, enjoying the sunset on the way. Experience a Berber evening with incredible and compulsory stargazing, as you will spend the night here.

Day 3

Dades Gorges - Todra Gorge - Erg Chebbi - Merzouga (B/D)
Today you will travel to another Gorge, the mighty Todra, recognized around the world as one of the most spectacular canyons. Spend some time here before heading down to the Sahara onto Erg Chebbi, the giant sand dunes that surround the Berber town of Merzouga. Local legend claims that the dunes were formed when a wealthy couple turned away a tired traveler and were thus punished by having thousands of tons of sand dropped over their house. The expanses of sand at Erg Chebbi shift daily in the wind to create spectacular dunes rising 150 meters in height over the rocky desert at their base. Here you will take the traditional method of transport - on a camel - to reach the Berber camp in time for sunset. Enjoy an evening of Berber hospitality under the stars of the Sahara. Overnight in Merzouga.
