Full description
Your tour will begin with pick-up from your hotel in Marrakesh at 7:30AM, before you depart to Ait Benhaddou over the high Atlas Mountains. You will pass through the Tizi N’tichka pass (2260 meters), and visit the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, you will drive to Ouarzazate and stop near the Atlas Film Studios for a photo, before continuing to the city center for a panoramic view of the Kasbah of Taourirt. Following this, you will head to Boumalne du Dades for your first night, having dinner at your hotel.

The next day, drive through the Dades Valley and Todra Gorges, allowing you to explore the sights of this region. Lunch can be taken at any restaurant of your choosing on your way. Arrive at Merzouga, where you will meet your camel to take you to the Dunes of Erg Chebbi, where you will spend your second night at a Berber desert camp.

After enjoying the amazing sunrise among the sand dunes and having breakfast, you will ride your camel back to where your driver will be waiting for you. You will be driven back to Marrakesh, with a few stops along the way. Sit down for lunch before you continue to the red city of Marrakesh, returning over the mountains of high Atlas passing through the Tizi N’tichka. Once back in Marrakesh, you will be dropped off at your local accommodation.
