3 day Marrakech to Merzouga Desert Tour

3 DAYS MARRAKECH TO MERZOUGA DESERT TOUR
SUMMARY
This tour is easily one of the most popular of them all. It is a desert trip from Marrakech to Merzouga that takes in many new discoveries. There are oases, sand dunes, Kasbahs, camel trekking and an overnight stay in a Sahara desert camp where you and your private party can gaze up into the night sky and witness the endless array of stars. The is no light pollution to spoil your starlight gaze at your camp in the middle of the desert, and the sunset you witness when camel trekking is equally lavish

Day - 1

DAY 1 : MARRAKECH – ATLAS MOUNTAINS- KASBAH AIT BEN HADDOU- BOUMALNE DADES VALLEY

 6 HOURS DRIVE

In this exciting and thrilling tour around the eastern half of Morocco you will travel in style in a modern air-conditioned minibus. Our guide will pick you up from your Marrakech hotel at 7.15 a.m. and escort you to the departure point. We will travel over the Atlas Mountain range and descend into the Kasbah at Ait Ben Haddou.

The Kasbah (there are actually six of them within a walled city) is a place of wonder. Here you will feel almost like you have stepped back in time to the days of gladiators, desert nomads and ancient trading markets. Lunch on the first day will be taken in the Kasbah at Ait Ben Haddou after the guided tour has finished.

Our next stop on our first day will be at Ouarzazate. We will admire the scenery of a city where several blockbuster movies have been filmed. Classics like The Mummy and Lawrence of Arabia are among the many films which have taken in a city often called “The Gateway to the Desert”.

In the desert’s gateway city we can take stop at a café before venturing on to the Dades Valley. Once here you can relax and unwind at a private guesthouse in Dades with en-suite bathroom and enjoy the culinary delights of a Moroccan evening dinner

The Todra Gorge is simply jaw-dropping and has a stunning scenery that makes you question why this has not been listed as a wonder of the world. After lunch on the second day we will travel on to Merzouga.

The Overnight Stay in a Desert Camp

Merzouga really is a place in the heart of the desert. Here we will get onto our camels and traverse the Dunes of Erg Chebbi and finish off at the Berber desert camp to rest up for the night.
