After breakfast, at 8 am, meeting with the guide at your hotel to start the tour.
Get ready to be surprised!
We will cross the high atlas, passing the port of Tichka at 2260m high, making several stops to contemplate the landscape and take pictures, since it is one of the most impressive routes in Morocco. We will see the change in the vegetation of Marrakech along with the views of the palm groves and the north face of the mountains. Due to the aridity of the south, we will begin to observe the first Berber villages of adobe on the slopes of the mountains.
We will go astray to visit the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, the well-preserved fortified town (ksour) that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and the scenario of many films.
After passing the city of Ouarzazate, the so-called “desert gate”, we will continue through the palm grove of Skoura and the Valley of the Roses until we reach the Dades Valley, where we will spend the night surrounded by mountains.
After the breakfast, we will continue along the banks of Boumalne Dades, in a road surrounded by kasbahs and ksours (fortresses or castles), whose landscape is ocher, red and mauve. After a journey full of oasis and palm trees we will arrive at Tineghir, where the spectacular Todra Gorges are perched at 1,350 m altitude and surrounded by a palm grove.
We will continue to Erfoud (city of fossils) and after passing several tracks we will reach Merzouga, in front of the dunes of Erg Chebbi, where we will change from our vehicle to the dromedaries, who will lead us to the camp to spend the night in Haimas and enjoy of the magic of the desert under a blanket of millions of stars.
Typical dinner at the rhythm of Berber drums.
This will undoubtedly be a magical night!
Whoever wants it, can get up early to see the sun rise and not miss the unique opportunity to see a sunrise that can be enjoyed in few places on earth.
After breakfast we will return with the dromedaries to the place where our 4 × 4 vehicle awaits us to surround the dunes, visit the Berber nomads that live in the area and have a tea with them, approach us to the mines and fossil area to meet the natural resources of the desert and to
witness a demonstration of traditional Gnaoua music from the Bambaras group of Khamlia.
Today we will have the afternoon free to take a relaxing walk in the dunes and enjoy the last sunset in the desert, to perform optional activities (quads …) or simply for a swim in the hotel
After the breakfast, we will say goodbye to the dunes to resume the route to the Ziz Valley, crossing the mountains of the Middle Atlas, we will reach the cedar forests of Azrou, where you can see macaques living in freedom on the wild.
