Desert tour from Marrakech-2 DAYS – MARRAKECH TO ZAGORA DESERT
Morning departure from your Hotel or riad through the High Atlas Mountains and the famous Tizi -n – Tichka (2260m) From these mountains, the view of the valleys and the Berber villages perched on the sides of mountains, sometimes barely distinguishable from mountains themselves, are spectacular. After crossing the pass, it continues to fall until finally you reach Ouarzazate, where you stop for lunch. From there you cross another pass smaller, Tizi -n – Tinfifite, before reaching the Valley Dra’a to Agdez. We go along the path of the ancient caravans between the mountains and the river, passing through many villages and gardens so you can get a better idea of the way of life along the oasis. You then come to Zagora, where you will have a camel ride to watch the sunset and dinner in the dunes at the camp of nomad tents to spend the night.
After the breakfast, we go from Dades gorges to Erg chebbi sahara desert in Merzouga. Berber villages are scattered along the way, we’ll pass through Todra Gorges ,Tenhir , Tinjdad, Jorf and Erfoud in which we’ll feel the beginning of the Saharan oasis of Tafilalet, and then we continue to a Hotel in Merzouga, after relaxing few minuts you will take some of you luggage in small bag (the necessary for the night in desert) and leave the other luggage in the hotel, then we will ride the camels on an adventure crossing the erg chebbi sand dunes, this is a great opportunity to take lovely pictures of the sunset and sunrise. when we reach the camp we will leave the camels and we walk to the highest sand dunes for sandboarding and to watch the sunset, we will spend the night in a camp (Berber nomad tents) with drums music in the middle of the Sahara.
