MARRAKECH – DESERT OF MERZOUGA – MARRAKECH
4 days / 3 nights
Desierto de Merzouga
Day 1: Marrakech – Valle De Las Rosas – Dades Valley
After pick up at 8am in the riad / hotel in Marrakech where you are staying, we will depart for Ouarzazate. On the way we cross the Atlas through the incredible Tizi N’Tichka port, 2,260 meters high.
Shortly after crossing the Atlas we will arrive at the Kasbah of Ait ben Haddou, an incredible fortified city that remains in good condition and where many movies have been filmed as Gladiator or The Kingdom of Heaven. We will stop to eat in Ouarzazate.
Once we finish eating, we will take the road that is known as ‘The Route of the Thousand Kasbahs’ to the oasis of Skoura. All this landscape with more than 700,000 palm trees and still having many Kasbahs in ruins still deserves a leisurely visit, being one of the places that emanate a special beauty where one is transported to other eras and time seems to stop. From here we will continue through the Valley of Roses (famous for the cultivation of them) to the Dades Valley, where we will have dinner and spend the night.
Day 2: The Dades Valley – Garracas de Todra – Merzouga Desert
After breakfast we will resume our tour to the desert of Merzouga, but before we will go up to one of the most fantastic parts that the mountains offer us to enjoy the views of the valley. We will stop at the Todra Gorges to eat and enjoy this wonderful landscape.
Once the energies have been renewed, we can continue traveling our roads to observe the palm grove of Tinghir (it is one of the most beautiful and vast in Morocco) and reach Erfoud (city of fossils).
We will arrive to Merzouga and after recovering from the impact that the immensity of the land that the desert offers in front of this city, we will leave the 4×4 to enter the dunes on the back of a camel in search of the camp that you have booked to spend this unique night and magical
Day 3: Merzouga – Rissani-Alnif-Tazarine – Draa Valley – Ouarzazate
Today will be early morning if you want to enjoy one of the dawns that you will never forget. After contemplating this moment we will take the dromedaries to approach the hotel where we can have breakfast.
From return to Ouarzazate we will take a different route. Passing the palm grove of Tafilalet and the town of Rissani (origin of the Alauí dynasty and ancient capital of the Alauíes sultans) we will arrive at Alnif, where we will take the road that crosses the Anti Atlas mountain range.
Amazed by the shapes and colors of these mountains we will arrive at Tazarine (important Berber village), N’kob and finally, the Draa Valley and its amazing palm grove.
We will finish the day in Ouarzazate, where we will spend the night in a riad.
Day 4: Ouarzazate – Marrakech
After breakfast we will have time to visit the famous Kasbah Taourirt and Atlas Film Studios, the most important in Africa. We will also go to the fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, where we will visit its famous Kasbah (Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986). In this spectacular frame several famous movies have been shot like Sahara, Indiana Jones, the Games of Thrones, etc.
We will have lunch in the village and in the afternoon we will depart for Marrakech crossing the mountain pass of Tizi N’Tichka with some stops to take pictures. Here we will leave behind the lunar landscape that will give way to the predominant colors, greens, ocher, etc.
Arrival in Marrakech about 6 pm or so, transfer to the hotel and end of our services.
