Day 1: Ouarzazate – Merzouga – Erg Chebbi dunes
We start our journey in the morning with a visit to the impressive rocks at Dades Gorges. We pass the beautiful oasis of Skoura, where we find numerous ancient kasbahs surrounded by palm trees. We continue our tour through the Kela’a M’gouna, the Valley of Roses. The abundant roses are harvested in Spring with the yearly Rose Festival. After this celebration the roses are processed into the beauty products that you will find throughout Morocco by local companies. After a lunchbreak in Dades Gorges we continue via the Ziz Valley, Erfoud and Rissani. At the Erg Chebbi dunes we will take a two-hour camel ride to the 250m dunes to watch the sunset. After dinner the nomad tents at the foot of the sand dunes will provide you a good rest under the starlit skies.
Day 2: Merzouga – Ouarzazate
In the morning we continue to the village of Tazzarine from the film Babel and to N’Qob for our lunch time. In the afternoon we drive along the ancient caravan route to Tansihkt and through the beautiful Dra’a Valley with its palm trees and ancient villages. At Agdez we will visit the Kasbah Tamnougalte. Via the mountain pass of Tizi-n-Tinfifte (1660m) at Ain Saouan with its amazing rock formations we return back to Ouarzazate.
