Tour itinerary

Day 1 : Fez - Azrou -Midelt - Erfoud - Merzouga (Night in the desert camp)

We will pick you up from your riad/hotel to start your 3 days desert tour from Fes to Marrakech and then drive south to Ifrane and Azrou through the Middle Atlas Mountains. Along the way, we will stop in the cedar forests to see Barbarian apes in their natural habitat. Traveling through the Tizi Ntalghamt Pass to Midelt and along the magnificent Ziz Gorges carved out of volcanic rock, you’ll see views of the Middle Atlas Plateau and the landscape changes to reveal hints of desert as you approach the town of Errachidia. After lunch, we will continue our journey through the Ziz valley towards Erfoud, Rissani and Merzouga. After a glass of mint tea, we will leave our luggage in a secure room and then ride a camel to a Berber camp in the middle of the Erg Chebbi Sad dunes, which are the highest in North Africa. The camel trek takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes from the camp to set up Berber tents for our night in the desert. The tents are well equipped with mattresses, blankets and cushions. After dinner, we will gather around the fire and enjoy the sound of traditional Berber drums under the stars. That is the end of the first day of our desert tour from Fes to Marrakech.

Day 2: Merzouga - Todra Gorges - Dades Gorges

We will see an incredible sunrise over the sea of dunes. After a delicious breakfast and a hot shower at the camp, we will return to Merzouga again on camels or 4×4 as an option.

    Denisse O La mejor parte de nuestro viaje a Morocco!

    Desde el primer té hasta la el último desayuno, nuestra experiencia en Kasbah Azalay fue verdaderamente un sueño. Los hermanos y todo su equipo eran los mejores hosts. Tomaban tiempo para explicarnos sobre la cultura y la región, y darnos recomendaciones sobre actividades.
