How far is the Sahara from Marrakech?
Did you know that the glorious sand dunes of the Sahara are one day of driving away from Marrakech? After driving for 8 or 9 hours to the South or East through beautiful landscapes you will find yourself in the peaceful sea of sand and silence that is the Sahara.
We also have a lot of clients starting their tour in the beautiful area of Ouarzazate. This city is situated halfway between Marrakech and the Sahara, surrounded by the famous Ait Benhaddou Unesco heritage site, impressive mountains and green oases on your way to the Sahara.
How long are the desert tours?
As long or as short as you want! Because we care a lot about you and your comfort we recommend to take a desert tour for at least three or four days from Marrakech. From Ouarzazate we offer tours starting at two days up to one week of trekking through the Sahara. All of these tours give you the time and space to really enjoy the Sahara without rushing and hurrying.
What is included in the desert tours?
We care a lot about you and your travel experience, that’s why we offer private tours made-to-measure your unique travel wishes. Our tours include private transport to the desert and back again with a personal driver/guide who takes care of you. Our local guides show you the best places on- and off-road and feel free to ask for a break to enjoy the breathtaking views around you!
In the desert you will be warmly welcomed in Saharan-style with a traditional tea ceremony and a delicious dinner from the cuisine of the desert. Watch the sunset over the glorious sand dunes while riding your camel. Enjoy the infinite stars around the bonfire before you spend the night in your own comfortable nomad-style tentbuilding. Wake up with the glorious sunset over the sand dunes and enjoy your traditional breakfast before getting ready for a new adventurous day!
