3 DAYS FROM FES TO MARRAKECH VIA SAHARA DESERT TOUR
Day 1: Fez – Middle Atlas – Azrou – Merzouga desert:
We will start our 3 days from Fes to Marrakech towards the desert by driving past the beautiful town of Ifrane, also called the Switzerland of Morocco for its unique weather and architecture. Our first stop along the way will be to observe wild macaque monkeys in their natural habitat, at the cedar forest in Azrou. We will resume our trip to Merzouga, passing through the valley of Ziz and its impressive palm groves, and the city of Erfoud that´s mostly known for its richness in natural fossils. Finally, we will arrive at Merzouga where we will ride on the back of camels that will lead us to the desert camp where we will spend the night, under a starry desert night sky.
Day 2: Erg Chabbi – Rissani – Gorges of Todra – Valleys of Dades and Roses – Ouarzazate:
If you are lucky enough to wake up before the sunrise, you will be able to catch a breathtaking sunrise over the desert dunes. We will then return to the 4×4 vehicles, riding on the back of camels again, to continue traveling to our next destination. We will drive by the city of Rissani, where we will make a stop at the largest traditional souk market in the area. This is the market where thousands of people from all around the south come to shop for their weekly provisions. We will then drive to our next location: the city of Ouarzazate. Along the way, we will drive by the beautiful Todra gorges, the Dades valley, the Roses valley and the palm groves of the Skoura oasis.
Day 3: Ouarzazate – Marrakech:
Our first activity of the day, after breakfast, of course, will be to drive to the star of the desert: The Kasbah of Ait Ben Heddou. This marvelous Kasbah was the filming location for many huge international movies, such as Gladiator, the Mummy, Cleopatra, Game of thrones… You will get to freely wander around the streets of the Kasbah. Next, we will start driving towards the city of Marrakech through the unique driveways of the High Atlas Mountains, most notably the pass of Tizi N Ntichka. We will also meet many small Berber villages along the way. Finally, we will arrive at Marrakech in the evening. This is where you will have dinner and spend the night.
