Desert Tour with Camel Trek
Day 1 : Transport from Marrakech over the Tizi n’Tichka Pass, to Ouarzatate, the gateway to the desert, where we will stop for lunch. Then along the Dades Valley to our overnight stop near Bouman with the chance to see the Dades Gorge.
Day 2 : Our drive continues along the Dades Valley, through Tinerhir where we can visit the spectacular Todra Gorge. We stop for lunch near Tinejdad and then head for the Erg Chebbi dunes. We arrive late afternoon in Merzouga on the edge of the dunes.Here we meet our camels for the first time. After we have got to know them we ride into the dunes at sunset to our campsite with the Nomads where we will enjoy a traditional Moroccan evening meal.
Day 3 : After our return from the dunes by camel as the sun rises, we travel by 4X4 across the desert to Zagora where we spend the night. On the way we pass through small villages and oases, along a road only recently completed.
Day 4 : We return to Marrakech via Ouarzazate, stopping on the way to visit the World Heritage site of Ait Benhaddou, the scene of many films, including Lawrence of Arabia.
