Day 1: Departure

Day 1: Marrakech – Boumalne Dades
Following an early pick-up from your hotel or riad in Marrakech, journey across the High Atlas Mountains to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. See the fortified Kasbah, used as a location set for some famous Hollywood epics, such as “Lawrence of Arabia.” Enjoy some time in the Kasbah, before driving to Ouarzazate, known as the “Gate of the Sahara.” Following lunch at leisure, continue to the Boumalne Dades via the Valley of the Roses. Upon arrival at Boumalne Dades, take the back roads through the Dades Canyons, passing stunning rock formations and fortified Kasbahs along the Dades River. Continue to your hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.


Day 2

Boumalne Dades – Erg Chebbi
Following breakfast at your hotel, drive the “Road of 1001 Kasbahs” to the small oasis town of Tinghir. Continue through the dramatic Todgha Gorges, pausing for some free time to explore the canyons and enjoy lunch at a local café. Continue to Merzouga to meet your camel caravan. Then, experience the Erg Chebbi dunes on camelback, and watch the sunset change the color of the sand. Reach your desert camp before nightfall, and enjoy an authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars. Local nomads will provide the entertainment and show you how to play the tam tam drums.


Day 3

Erg Chebbi – Marrakech
Wake early to watch the sunrise before breakfast (optional). Then, ride your camel back to the main road. Your driver will be waiting to pick you up for the transfer back to Marrakech. Stop half-way for lunch in Ouarzazate.

    “Amazing experience!”
    Our 3 days tour was beautiful also thanks to our driver Hassan (I hope it is correctly written!), that was very gentle and kind with us,
    It was difficult to communicate with the company before the tour,but than everithig was good.
    the car trip is quite long, but the places you can see durint the trip are very beautiful. The night in the desert is very cold so bring with you warm clothes and the sleep bag.

    Interesting experience with nice guides”
    Although it was a very exhausting trip, because almost all the time we were on the road during the day, we loved it. But it is nearly impossible to go to the desert and back being rexed, because of the long distance. Four days for the wole trip are recommended 😉
    We must say that we have great respect to Hasan, our driver. He was sick and still was very kind all time and had the car very good under control. Also Mustafa – our young guide – supported and accompanyed us every time we stoped and helped finding a pharmacy for example. Both of the guys are very nice persons and we had no problems telling our needs. They really tried their best! There is only one thing: maybe in general, a guide should know things and share informations about the point we have visited. But all in all, we are happy!

    A great experience! We got to see both Berber culture and beautiful landscapes, natural and man made. Some of the things were more expensive than expected but worth it. The guides were good, the costumer service great and the driver fantastic. We can definitely recommend it!

    Unsere Tour begann mit dem einzigen “Negativpunkt” auf unserer Tour. Am Tag davor haben wir mit dem Büro telefoniert, damit wir eine halbe Stunde später abgeholt werden. Der Fahrer kam aber pünktlich zur eigentlichen Uhrzeit, sodass wir unser Frühstück einpacken mussten. Das war aber alles kein Problem und im Verlauf der Tour musste unser geduldiger Fahrer immer wieder auf uns warten, während wir es mit Fotos machen etwas übertrieben. Neben dem spektakulären Ait Ben Haddou und der Übernachtung in der Wüste war unser Guide und Fahrer das absolute Highlight. Jede Frage beantwortete er und war immer für einen Spass bereit. Wir stehen heute noch mit ihm in Kontakt. Die Hotelunterkunft in der ersten Nacht war gut organisiert und die Zimmer sehr geräumig. Die zweite Nacht in der Wüste war das eigentliche Highlight der Tour. Nach einem (etwas langen) Kamelritt kamen wir bei ein paar Zelten an, die um ein Lagerfeuer angeordnet waren. Hier fühlte man sich nie wie ein Tourist.
