Our well-loved 3 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert starts bustlingly in Marrakech. From there, we set off on an exploration of Morocco‘s beauty, passing through captivating spots like the fortified Kasbahs of Ait Ben Haddou and the Atlas Studios in Ouarzazate.
The pinnacle of this adventure is our camel trek into the Merzouga desert, where we’ll spend a night in an authentic Berber camp. It’s a chance to soak in the tranquil desert scenery and relish a dinner under the stars around a crackling campfire.
As the third day arrives, we’ll take an alternate route back to Marrakech, pausing at more scenic spots along the way.
Our delightful 3 Days Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert begins with your pick-up from your accommodation or a designated meeting point. Our journey kicks off amidst the grandeur of the Atlas Mountains, renowned worldwide. The first breathtaking sight is the Tizi nTichka pass (2260m), where we’ll pause to visit various Argan oil cooperatives. Then, we continue onward to Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famed for its unique towers and clay architecture, often chosen as a stunning filming location. Here, we’ll pause to relax and explore this remarkable place.
Our expedition from Marrakech to Merzouga spans further as we head to a top restaurant in Ouarzazate for lunch, a stop akin to our previous one. Ouarzazate’s Atlas Studios, in Morocco’s cinematic hub, crafts films and offers equipment rentals. This city has been a backdrop for renowned shows and movies, notably hosting Game of Thrones and Prison Break. Following our visit to Atlas Studios, we’ll journey to Boumalne Dades, where we’ll spend the night in the enchanting Dades Gorges.
On the 2nd day of our 3 days excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga after breakfast, head towards Tinghir using the scenic 1000 Kasbahs route. Once at this breathtaking sanctuary, take a leisurely stroll along the Todgha River’s banks. Explore Berber villages and Ksours along the way. And when you reach the awe-inspiring towering cliffs of Todgha canyons, you’ll realize your morning adventure was truly rewarding!
Pause for a delightful Berber lunch at your leisure in the Gorges before heading to Merzouga. Upon arrival at Erg Chebbi, meet your camel caravan at the end of the road. Ride your camel through the ever-shifting dunes and witness an incredible sunset.
As the darkness begins to set in, arrive at your Sahara desert tent. After setting up camp, climb one of the nearby dunes to soak in the tranquil desert atmosphere. Enjoy a Moroccan meal under the stars, followed by a drumming session with the nomads around the campfire. Then, use the nearby dunes to witness an incredible display of shooting stars and crystal-clear constellations.
Rest for the night in your Sahara desert tent, surrounded by the serenity of the desert.
