DAY 1 – MARRAKECH – OUARZAZAT – AIT BEN HADDOU
On this exciting and exciting tour through the south-east half of Morocco you will travel in a modern air-conditioned minibus. Our guide will pick you up at your Marrakech hotel at 7:15 in the morning and accompany you to our starting point. We will travel through the Atlas Mountains and descend to the Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou. The Kasbah (although there are in fact six within this walled city) is a wonderful place. Here you will feel almost as if you had traveled back in time to the days of gladiators, desert nomads and ancient markets. On this first day, we will eat at the Kasbah in Ait Ben Haddou once the guided tour is over. The second stop of our first day will be in Ouarzazate. We will admire the landscape of a city in which several blockbusters have been shot. Classics such as La Mummy and Lawrence of Arabia are among the many films that have been filmed in this city, which is often referred to as “The Entrance to the Desert.” In this city we can stop in a cafe before venturing into the Dades Valley. Once here you can relax in a private guest house in Dades in a room with a bathroom and enjoy the culinary delights of a Moroccan dinner.
Day 2 – TODRA– MERZOUGA
The next morning we will have a copious breakfast in our guest house and leave for the Todra Gorge. The Todra Gorge will leave you speechless since it has spectacular views that will make you wonder why it is not considered one of the wonders of the world. After lunch we will travel to Merzouga. Night Stay in a Desert Camp Merzouga is truly in the heart of the desert. Here we will climb our camels and cross the Erg Chebbi Dunes and end up in a Berber camp in the desert where we will spend the night. In this desert camp you will enjoy dinner, and breakfast in the morning before completing the last day of our trip back to Marrakech.
Day 3: MERZOUGA – MARRAKECH
Our camels will take us back to Merzouga and from there we will continue through the Draa Valley, where we will admire the views in Rissani. Here the architecture of the Moroccan palaces, doors and temples deserves to be taken in photo. In the last part of our excursion we will move to Nqob and then to Tamnougalt before reaching the already familiar city of Ouarzazate once again. You can eat at any café before we head, through the Atlas Mountains, back to Marrakech for the end of our trip. We will arrive in Marrakech around 8 pm.
