3 Days Morocco trip from Marrakech to Merzouga desert and Fez

Day 1 : Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley

We will meet you at your accommodation in Marrakech and drive to Ouarzazate through the dramatic Tizi ‘n’ Tichka pass (2260m), over the High Atlas Mountains, appreciating the beauty of the landscape on the twisted roads through the Berber villages where you will have the opportunity to explore how the argan oil is made by Berber women in their cooperative. Arriving at the famous Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, the largest Kasbah in Morocco, now it is a UNESCO matrimonial historical site and a house of many Glaoui family members, we’ll have lunch at the Kasbah before continuing to Dades Gorge via Ouarzazate, “the Hollywood of Africa”, along the “Road of the thousand Kasbahs”- the fascinating “sand castles”. Stopping at Kalaat Mgouna, “the rose’s city” known for roses and its annual festival during the roses harvest in May, then we’ll continue to our accommodation in the heart of the Dades Gorge. Overnight in our guest house/riad.( dinner and breakfast).

Day 2 : Dades Valley - Todra Gorge - Merzouga - Erg Chebbi Dunes

After breakfast , we’ll drive back through the valley to see the amazing rock formation known as “the monkey toes” and the still-standing 19th century Kasbah of Ait Yul. Leaving the Dades valley towards Tinrghir and the Todra valley you’ll see panoramic views of the old mud Berber villages overlooking the valley. Arriving at the Gorge is an opportunity to walk under the 300 m high red cliff, where many rock-climbers come to enjoy their preferred sport. Continuing on to Erfoud and Rissani where we’ll have lunch before heading on to the village of Merzouga where your camel will be waiting you. You will be welcomed with a glass of mint tea and a turban (desert scarf) before you ride your camel, guided by an experienced Camel Guide, to explore within the mysterious sand-sea of the Erg-Chebbi. Here you’ll spend your first night under the stars, or if you prefer, in a traditional Berber nomad tent.

Day 3 : Merzouga Desert - Ziz Valley - Ifrane - Fez

Your camel guide will wake you up early in the morning to watch what well may be the best sunrise in your life. Afterwards, you’ll peacefully camel-trek back to your riad appreciating the unique beauty of the spectacular Erg Chebbi dunes - changing with the light as the Day progresses. After breakfast and shower in the local guest house we’ll travel to Fes via Errachidia along the magnificent Ziz Gorges carved through volcanic rock, and through the Tizi Ntalghamt pass to Midelt, stopping in Zaida to enjoy a barbecue and refresh with a glass of mint tea before continuing to Azrou, a Berber village in the Middle Atlas Mountains, where we’ll stop to see the Barbarian apes in the cedar forest.
