We will start our 3 days from Fes tour to Merzouga 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. Another beautiful town we will come across along the way is Midelt. We will then resume our trip to Merzouga, passing through the valley of Ziz and its impressive palm groves, with breathtaking natural landscapes. Then we will reach the town of Aoufous and the city of Erfoud that´s mostly known for its richness in natural fossils. Finally, we will arrive at Merzouga where we will first stop at a hotel in order to check-in and deposit our luggage, and then we will switch from 4×4 vehicles to a camel caravan which we will ride through the fascinating dunes of Erg Chebbi. We will then reach our desert camp just in time to watch the sunset over the dunes, after which you will have dinner and get to spend the night in a traditional nomad tent.
Day 2: Merzouga – Desert journey

We will then return to the hotel in order to have breakfast, riding on the back of camels again, to continue traveling to our next destination. We will pay a visit to the beautiful Yasmina Lake, located in the middle of the desert dunes.
