  • Covid-19 Safe
  • Private tour

See more of Morocco outside the city on a 2-night tour from Marrakesh to Ouarzazate, Dades Valley, and the Merzouga Dunes. You'll spend the night in a Berber tent or at a luxury camp, and take a 2-hour camel ride across the desert at sunset ending with dinner and live entertainment around a fire. Please note: The last day includes a 10-hour drive back to Marrakesh.

Day 1 Marrakech - Ait Benhaddou - Ouarzazate - Dades Valley

The 3 days Marrakech to Merzouga desert tour will begin with you being picked up from your Marrakech riad or hotel. You will be taken across the high Atlas Mountains through the Tizi-N-Tichka pass that overlooks the foothills of the mountain which are studded with trees and Berber villages to reach the gateway of the Sahara, Ouarzazate.

On our way, we will enjoy a visit to Ksar of “Ait Benhaddou” the world-famous UNESCO world heritage site. This Kasbah in particular has served as the shooting location for many Hollywood movies such as “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Jesus of Nazareth”. Your guide will also guide you around the dried river and up the highest hill in the Kasbah for a breathtaking view. Afterwards, we will drive to Ouarzazate, followed by crossing the Valley of Roses and Skoura palm grove to Dades Gorges where we will enjoy dinner and spend the night in a typical hotel in the middle of this gorgeous location.

Day 2 Dades Gorges - Todra Gorges - Merzouga Dunes (Erg Chebbi)

The day begins with a traditional Moroccan breakfast before we depart from the hotel at 8 am. We will drive through the road of 1000 kasbahs and with some radiant Berber villages along the way.

45 km later we will visit Tinghir with its beautiful palm grove and Jewish quarter and from there, make our way to Todra Gorges. There we will hike along 300 m high canyons, which has proven popular among mountain climbers.

Our next stop will be Erg Chebbi dunes in Merzouga Sahara Desert where a 1.5-hour camel ride is prepared for us. The camel trek across the sunset of the desert will transport us to the nomadic camp in the middle of Merzouga. There we will enjoy a good meal by the campfire as we listen to the traditional nomad chants before spending the night in private bivouacs under the star-filled sky.

Day 3 Erg Chebbi - Tazarine - Agdez - Marrakech

You will be woken up at 5:30, half an hour before sunrise to catch the first rays. After breakfast in your camp, we will ride the camel’s back to meet the driver and make our way to Marrakech. Along the way, we will cross Tazarine and the Draa Valley, Agdez, and Ouarzazate with lunch. This will conclude the 3-day desert trip from Marrakech to Merzouga.
