Itinerary

Day 1Atlas Mountains - High Atlas Mountains - Boumalne Dades

  • Depart Marrakech in the morning and cross the Atlas Mountains via the winding Tichka Pass towards the Dades Valley passing through small towns that cling to the slopes of the mountains, in a way that will allow you to visit the most remote areas on your way south. 
  • We will stop at Ait Ben-Haddou, an ancient Ksar that has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located along the former trade caravan route between the Sahara Desert and Marrakech, the Ksar is now often used as a filming location for movies including The Jewel of the Nile, The Mummy, and Kingdom of Heaven.
  • We will stay for lunch there and then continue our journey to Ouarzazate, also known as “the Hollywood of Africa,” as it attracted many world-class film producers.
  • Arrive in Boumalne Dades and head to your riad in the Dades Gorge.
  • Enjoy dinner at your riad. Dinner included.
  • Overnight in Boumalne Dades.

Day 2Dades – Todra gorges – Merzouga

  • Today you will complete your journey to the Sahara Desert.

  • Arrive in the Sahara Desert in the afternoon and meet your camels for your trek into your desert camp. You will journey through the dunes, and your camel guide will be able to get some great pictures for you as well! 
  • Arrive at your camp and enjoy a welcome glass of Moroccan mint tea and take some time to relax before dinner. Dinner included.
  • After dinner, enjoy live music around the bonfire, or perhaps head to the top of the dune for some star gazing. Just watch out for the camels that roam the desert at night!
  • Overnight in the Sahara Desert.

Day 3Merzouga – Alnif – Agdz – Ouarzazate

  • Optional: Wake up early to witness the breathtaking desert sunrise over the dunes. Keep in mind that desert nights can be chilly, so be sure to bring your jacket!

Our journey with Simply Morocco was nothing short of incredible. The diversity of landscapes we encountered in just four days was astounding. We especially enjoyed the camel ride at sunset in the Sahara, it felt like something out of a movie! The small group size allowed for personalized attention, and the local insights shared by our guide added depth to our experience. This tour is perfect for couples looking for adventure and romance in equal measure.

I cannot recommend this tour enough! As a solo traveler, safety and companionship were paramount for me, and Simply Morocco delivered on both fronts. The highlight for me was definitely spending a night under the stars in a traditional Berber camp in the Sahara. The sense of peace and tranquility was unparalleled. The itinerary strikes a perfect balance between adventure and relaxation, making it suitable for all types of travelers.
