Itinerary
Book your preferred tour option and start your 3-day adventure with pickup from your Marrakech accommodation. Then, settle inside your shared, air-conditioned minivan and travel into the Atlas Mountains, passing Berber villages, orchards, and rugged valleys.

After crossing the Tizi-n-Tichka pass, visit the UNESCO-listed medieval fortified town of Ait Benhaddou kasbah before taking in the desert oasis of Skoura and staying overnight at Boumalne du Dades.

On the second day, trace the Road of 1,000 Kasbahs to Tinghir, and walk through an oasis to the spectacular Todra Gorge. After lunch at a local café and an afternoon visit to the holy city of Rissani, travel on to Merzouga on the fringes of the Sahara desert.

Then, take a late-afternoon camel trek toward Erg Chebbi, where you'll spend the night at a desert camp and enjoy dinner and local live music under the stars. Your final day begins with a stroll in the dunes and a desert breakfast before a return camel ride to Merzouga and journey back via Ouarzazate and the High Atlas to Marrakech, where your trip ends at the starting point.

See the Itinerary below for details of the full schedule and accommodation options.

Amazing experience

It was definitely the highlight of our trip. It was exhausting, very hot, lots of walking and dust, but so worth it. A lifetime experience. We chose the luxury accomodation for the camp in the Sahara night (we got our own bathroom and shower, which...More

Amazing

This was an amazing experience. First of all, the most important person, was our driver Houssain. He was a very good driver, made us feel much better with the winding roads of the Atlas. We then had several guides as we traveled along the way,...More

Beautiful places, images, stories. The desert experience is undescribable. The problems we faced are following. First, lunch was not included in the price so we thought we could eat wherever we liked, but no. We were forced in cruppy restaurants by our guides and food...More

You will have the deluxe or normal option when you press the purchase option. Deluxe tents have shower and toilet in each persons tent. I highly recommend the deluxe over normal.
