Full description

Experience life in the Sahara Desert on a small group tour to the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Ride a camel across the sands and watch the sunset along the way. Drive across the winding roads of the Middle Atlas Mountains and much more.

Day 1: Fes - Ifrane - Midelt - Merzouga

Depart Fes and pass through the winter ski resort of Ifrane, built by the French in the 1930s to resemble a Swiss village. Continue through the cedar forest of Azrou and look for the resident monkeys before your drive across the Middle Atlas Mountains. Wind your way through beautiful forests, mountain springs, jagged rocks and Berber villages before your descent to the Sahara Desert. Stop for lunch half-way in the town of Midelt, famous for its fossils and rocks. Then, continue towards Merzouga taking in the panoramic views of a huge oasis of palm trees at Ziz along the way. Upon arrival in Rissani, travel by 4WD vehicle into the desert, reaching Merzouga in the afternoon. Here, your guide will be waiting with the camels that will take you across the dunes to Erg Chebbi.

Watch the sunset from the back of your camel on a one-hour trek to a Berber camp. Upon arrival at the desert shelter, your camels will be tethered as you are served a welcome mint tea. Enjoy dinner and relax as you look at the stars in the sky. Stay overnight in your choice of a shared, private standard, or private luxury tent.

Day 2: Merzouga - Tafilalte - Fes

Wake early and walk across the dunes to watch the sunrise from just behind the Algerian border, about 50 kilometers from Merzouga. Take a shower after and enjoy breakfast before the drive back to Fes, and benefit from comfort stops on the approximate 7-hour journey.

The Magic of the Sahara Desert I had an amazing trip, Hacem was our tour guide and he is very knowledgeable about the history of the different sports that we visited and he is also a very fun guy to be around. He also know a lot about the best places to eat traditional food. I highly recommend this trip.

The experience was very nice, you can see incredible places. The daily life of the locals, the monkeys, the dromedaries, the sand dunes in the desert, the traditional market of Rissani, the houses of Ifrane, all very beautiful things. Our guide, Hachem, was very good, thanks to him and his stories we discovered and learned many things. Great Hachem, thank you.

It was an absolutely amazing experience! We had a blast with the driver/tour guide Driss, who went above and beyond for us to make the most of the trip. He was extremely kind, helpful, knowledgeable about anything we would ask, and his positivity and the time spent together during long drives definitely made our trip 200% more memorable and enjoyable! The sunset/sunrise at the dessert was magical and we also really enjoyed staying at the dessert camp. Dinner was absolutely amazing, the camp fire/music/dance was so much fun, and the tent was extremely comfortable with a big bed and private bathroom/shower. It was also a big plus to get to know other travelers from all over the world at the camp! Thank you so much for your hospitality and flexible arrangements/accomodations and we wish you all the best!
