ماذا ستفعل

Join our 9-day Marrakech to Sahara Desert tour that begins and ends in Marrakech, travels through the Atlas highlands, visits the four imperial towns, and includes a camel ride in Merzouga. During our journey from Marrakech to Merzouga, we will take you to the Sahara desert for a camel ride through the desert on one of our guided excursions.


Day 1: Arrival in Marrakech

Our staff will meet you at Marrakech airport and transport you in our car to the riad or hotel where you may freshen up before supper. During lunch, you will have the opportunity to get to know your other guests and staff members. You will receive a briefing for the next day after supper to ensure you are always prepared.

Day 2: Travel to Ouarzazate

After breakfast, we'll travel to Ouarzazate, also known as the "Door to the Sahara." We'll have lunch in Ait Ben Haddou's UNESCO World Heritage-listed kasbah before continuing our drive to Ouarzazate, the location of many great films. Spend your free time exploring the city, which is populated by Berbers who built many of the area's notable kasbahs and mud cast structures.

Day 3: Arrival at Camp

After breakfast, we'll board a car for our first camp. We will stop along the road to see the spectacular Taourite Kasbah before arriving at the panoramic beauty of Draa valley. We'll go for a brief cool walk through an oasis of palm palms surrounded by henna plants. Then we proceed to Zagora, a popular tourist destination known for its 'Timbuktu is 52 days away signage.' We'll eat lunch here and have time to tour the market. Guests enjoy immersing themselves in Moroccan culture by acquiring a traditional headscarf to shield their heads from the harsh desert heat. When we arrive at our first campground in Lfaija, we will be greeted by our dromedary crew, which will accompany us into the desert. Our crew prepares dinner from scratch.

Day 4: 'Le Bapteme De La Solitude' - Relaxing in the Desert

After breakfast, we begin our first day of trekking with a short uphill journey across Bani Mountain, onto the dry river of Om Laachar, where we will enjoy the serene, peaceful atmosphere. This is where you will receive your first glimpse of the incredible Sahara scenery, which the French refer to as 'le bapteme de la solitude.' We move on to our second campsite after a picnic lunch, with afternoon tea and plenty of time to rest, relax, and enjoy the 'walk in the bush' experience before evening. Morocco's sky is frequently so clear that you can see multiple star constellations. You will have a fantastic sense of liberation. Some visitors enjoy the starry sky and open-air sleeping bag fun.

Day 5: Trek to Amda n-Omssafi

After breakfast, we start for our next destination, Amda n-Omssafi, hoping to encounter more Ait Aatta tribe nomads along the way. They frequently invite us to join them in their nomad tents for mint tea. We'll arrive at Amda-n-Ossafi Camp after lunch. Dinner will be followed by a relaxing evening before an early start. Enjoy your free time by taking photographs, reading, simply gazing out at the vast open space, or conversing with our guides, all of whom are quite informed about the area's history, traditions, and way of life.

Day 6: Our Desert Adventure

After breakfast, we embark on a slightly more challenging trek as the path is now entirely made of desert sand. We'll take plenty of breaks and enjoy a picnic lunch in the middle of the dunes. The vastness of the terrain and how we navigate the big open country will astound you. But don't worry, our dromedary squad has trekked the Sahara for years and knows it like the back of their hands. We'll spend our first night camping in the middle of the dunes, where you can marvel at the spectacular sunrises and sunsets of the Sahara.

Day 7: Last Day of Dunes Walking

After breakfast, we take a walk around the dunes, exploring the tracks left by the previous night's activities outside the tents and guessing the different animal and insect footprints. It's truly amazing! We walk gradually across the dunes, stopping for lunch along the way, and arrive at our nighttime camp, which is located on one of the highest dunes in the area (approximately 50m), with wonderful panoramic views. Enjoy dinner under a million stars before saying farewell to our desert tour group.

Day 8: Transfer to and from Marrakech

After breakfast, we collect our belongings and board one of the 44 jeeps that will drive us back to Marrakech. We'll travel past Iriqi's famed dry lake, a flat picturesque plateau location popular with both locals and visitors for 'crazy rally driving.' After a picnic lunch on the road to Foumzguit, we will arrive in the lively city of Marrakech. You'll be ready to unwind with a swim, hamman, spa, or massage. We offer an optional evening tour to Jamaa Efna Square to dine in a traditional restaurant.

Day 9: Marrakech Free Day

Take advantage of your leisure time. If you have time, why not take an open-air city bus trip of the 'red city' to view all of its iconic monuments? Please return to the riad or hotel at least three hours before your flight departure time for the airport shuttle.
