On this amazing desert tours from Marrakech we move on the same gentle, effortless pace as our camel caravan, either riding the African camels (dromedaries) or enjoying the hot sand under our bare feet. Our guides learned how to live with this beautiful yet savage area thousands of years ago and are completely at one with the endless sands of the Sahara desert. On this desert tour from Marrakech your profound desires are launched and your dream fantasies come to life. Since ancient times, Sahara has been deep in our thoughts and in the dreams of all human beings. Mysticism and exotic blend into a unique form of nature: the sand dunes of Merzouga welcome you.
Departure from Marrakech at 7:00 am, we drive across the Atlas Mountains (200 km through the High Atlas Mountain).
We have a short stop for breakfast around 9:00 am in a Berber Village (Tadart).
First big stop is to visit ‘Aït Ben Haddou Kasbah’ a 16th century fortress classified by UNESCO as a human heritage. Many big movies were turned there (Gladiator, Laurence of Arabia, Kingdom of Heaven…)
We stop for lunch even at the Aït Benhaddou Kasbah or in Ouarzazate (the capital city of cinema in Africa). After lunch we drive through the Roses valley and the Road of the Kasbahs. We arrive to Dades Gorges around 5:00 pm. We spend the night in the Gorges
After breakfast we drive toward Todgha valley, we visit the Valley and its gorges. We drive to Erfoud; there we stop for lunch, after lunch we drive to Merzouga, the gate to the dunes. We go to Le Palais des Dunes hotel, we stop there for around an hour if you are attempted by a short swim in the swimming pool. Around 4 o’clock we ride camels two hours into the dunes.
We arrive to the camp around 6 o’clock, we have a mint tea with the nomads in the camp, and then we get over the dunes to watch the sun set. After the sun set you will have the opportunity to see the most amazing sky you have ever seen in your life. Back to the camp for dinner, after dinner the nomads play music for us around a fire. We sleep under nomads tents
