Day 1 : Marrakech – High Atlas Mountains – Tizi N Tichka – Ait Ben haddou – Ouarzazate – Agdez

We start our journey from your Riad in Marrakech. Then we head to the South-Eastern part of Morocco by crossing the chain of Mountains called the high Atlas. It is necessary to take the famous Tizi N’tichka pass to reach the other side of the Mountains. The road offers nice views of landscapes and is worth some great panoramic pictures. Ait Ben Haddou village is located near the Oued Elmalh River. The historical Kasbah consists of the tall habitat of adobe, and the site is taken as a movie set for Gladiator, Lawrence of Arabia, the game of thrones … etc., Then we take a guided visit of the Atlas movies studio. And we take time for lunch. in the afternoon we are going to our accommodation in Agdz, Dinner, and overnight in Kasbah Tamnougalte.

Day 2: Agdez – Zagora – Mhamid – Erg Chigaga

After breakfast, we visit Kasbah Tamnougalte, It’s the same kasbah we spent the night in it, the oldest Kasbah in the Draa Valley, before taking the ancient caravan road between the river and the mountains for a short while. On the way, we pass many villages and gardens where you can gain a better idea of the way of life in the life-giving oases. Zagora is the largest town in the whole area and where we shall stop for lunch. Later we pass through Tamgroute with a stop for the potteries, famous for their green glaze, which you may have already seen in Marrakech. The ancient Quranic library with exquisite hand-written Arabic texts is well worth visiting. In the afternoon, we drive further south still to M’hamid, the very gate to the desert, and the end of the paved road. You leave the asphalted road behind to drive about 60 km across the desert. The dunes in Erg Chegaga are far away from civilization, in the desert proper, where nomadic life is hard, subject to the vagaries of the wind, sandstorms, and sparse rainfall. But the silence and the expanse of the sand are overwhelming, Here you have a camel ride with a guide to the top of the dunes to watch the spectacular desert sunset. You have dinner and spend the night at a luxury camp with a private bathroom, king-sized beds, beautiful Moroccan furnishings, and lamps tastefully arranged to enhance your enjoyment of the silence and beauty of the dunes.

  1. Dianne Grace Bradecina

    My friends and I booked a trip to Morocco and wanted to see all of the best parts with little effort on our part which is exactly what we got! Our tour guide Abdou was the best tour guide we could have asked for. Every time we wanted something, he made it happen. I definitely recommend riding the ATVs through the dunes in the Sahara Desert. 10 out of 10 recommend taking this tour and if you can request Abdou, I would do that as well! Best trip ever!
