      • Day 1 Marrakech - Atlas Mountains - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley

        Approx. 6-hour trip

        Your journey to the Erg Chebbi desert begins from Marrakech in the morning. We will cross the High Atlas Mountains, passing through various Kasbahs and Berber villages in the Atlas. We will make some stops to take photos, enjoy the scenery, stretch our legs, and have a cup of coffee. We will then stop at the top of Tizi'N'tichka to admire its panoramic view. We will continue our tour to reach Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, the most important stop on the first day of the desert tour from Marrakech. Ait Ben Haddou is the best-known ksar in Morocco and probably one of the country's most impressive and fascinating monuments, earning it a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. You will have a leisurely visit to this fortified village that has been the setting for major Hollywood hits like Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and Game of Thrones.

        After having a well-served lunch at one of the local cafes, we will continue to the Dades Valley, passing through Ouarzazate, the Skoura oasis, and Klaa Mgouna, the capital of the rose valley, famous for its traditional rose water distillation factories. At the end of the day, we will spend the night in the Dades Valley.

      • Day 2 Dades Valley - Tinghir - Erfoud - Merzouga

        Approx. 4-hour trip

        After enjoying an excellent traditional breakfast, our 3-day group tour of the Moroccan Merzouga desert continues. We will take the road of the 1001 Kasbahs to the oasis of Tinghir and the streets lined with ancient Kasbahs and many attractive Berber villages. We will then head to Tineghir, an impressive 15 km valley full of date palm trees. We will enjoy the high grey and pink rock walls surrounding the road.

        Next, we will head to Erg Chebbi, located in Merzouga. Upon arriving at the famous dunes of the Sahara Desert, we will let you enjoy a camel ride while watching the sunset, heading towards the oasis where the camp is located. There's nothing more fascinating than spending the night in the Merzouga Sahara dunes in one of the traditional nomadic tents or outdoors under the shooting stars. If you wish, you can also spend magical moments playing drums with the experienced camel guide.

      • Day 3 Merzouga – Erfoud – Ouarzazate– Marrakech

        Approx. 9-hour trip

        On the last day of our desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga, we will pick you up in the morning and take you to a nearby place to watch the fantastic sunrise in the dunes.

        After breakfast, we will take a camel ride to the main road. You will meet your driver there to take you back in a comfortable minibus to Ouarzazate. After your leisure time and lunch, we will continue our journey back to Marrakech through the High Atlas Mountains. The 3-day Merzouga desert tour will end in the afternoon around 7:00 pm in Marrakech.


      Things to know

      • Pickup time is usually between 7:00 - 7:30 am; we will contact you the day before the desert tour to set it up.
      • If you stay in Medina, the meeting point might be Jemaa el Fna Square, precisely at "Café France."
      • Additional charges may apply for hotels on the city's outskirts, which will vary depending on the distance.
      • This is an ideal trip for backpackers; if you want to enjoy more comfort and customize your trip, a private 3-day tour to the desert from Marrakech will suit you much better.
      • If you travel alone, you will need to pay the single supplement for accommodation (contact us to find out the cost).
      • Your luggage is welcome on this tour to the Merzouga desert from Marrakech. It will be safely stored in the minibus or taken to the camp.
      • Please prepare a small backpack with essentials for the desert night.
      • If you do not choose the luxury tent option, bringing your own towel for the camp is recommended.
      • Remember to pack long pants, especially for camel riding, to help prevent chafing and ensure a comfortable journey.
      • Along with your hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes, a scarf or bandana can be very useful for protection against the desert sand and the cool evenings.
      • Remember: The quad tour is optional and will have an additional cost.
      • If it suits you to end this desert tour in Fez, we recommend our Marrakech to Fez tour through the Merzouga desert.
