Explore the magnificent wonders of the Morocco Valley on this desert tour. Spend three days travelling to various attractions and sites while sleeping in the desert.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel, or riad, and cross the High Atlas Mountains of Tichka Pass. We will leave the main road and take the side road to the Kasbah of Telouet, which now stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country following the departure of the French. We will continue along the new road with a lunch stop at Ait Ben Haddou, the most famous Kasbah in Morocco and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. After lunch, we will explore the area. The road passes Ouarzazate to the Skoura Oasis, where numerous ancient kasbahs, some in ruins, stand amongst the palm trees. We drive through Kela’a M’gouna, the Valley of Roses with a stop to see articles locally made from the valley’s roses. We will spend overnight in the Dades Gorge.
After breakfast, you will explore the area on a nature walk before driving to Toudgha Gorges. After a traditional lunch, we continue through the Ziz Valley and the towns of Erfoud and Rissani. Enjoy a Moroccan hospitality with a glass of mint tea and a two-hour camel ride in the desert. The sunset from the top of the dunes is spectacular. We will have dinner and the night in a nomad tent as we sleep under the stars.
An early morning start will give you the opportunity to see a beautiful sunrise as the color of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. We will drive back to the Draa Valley along the villages of Tazzarine, featured in the film Babel, and N’Qob, where we will have lunch overlooking the mountains. In the afternoon, we drive to Tanasikht full of large palm trees and ancient kasbahs. We follow along the track of the ancient caravan route to Agdez and the oldest Kasbah in the valley, Kasbah Tamnougalte. We continue to Marrakech along the High Atlas Mountains.
