Full description
Day 1: Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou - Zagora
In the morning, depart on an enjoyable drive across the high Atlas Mountains, through Tizi N'Tichki’s pass over 2,260 meters high. See beautiful villages suspended on the flanks of the mountains, visiting the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site, where multiple well-known movies are shot such as The Mummy, Gladiator, 7 Days In Tibet, and Alexander.

After lunch, you continue to the south through the lunar landscapes and the pre-Sahara routes until you arrive at Zagora. For the next five kilometers, you will experience the first sand dunes, a taste of the Sahara Desert. Sunset and sunrise views from these dunes are unforgettable. You will experience a genuine camel trek in the desert, enjoying the grand solitude, immensity, and silence of the Sahara. You will have dinner and sleep in tents in Zagora.

Day 2: Zagora - Daraa Valley - Ouarzazate - Marrakech
Depart for Marrakech after breakfast. On the way, visit the city of Ouarzazate where you can visit the Taourirt Kasbah and cinema studios. Then drive back to Marrakech by the Tizi N'Tichki road.
