Marrakech – Agdez – M’Hamid – Chegaga Dunnes – Ouarzazate – Marrakech  


Desert Tour

5 days 4 Nights



1st day: Marrakesh – Agdez
8 o’clock departure from your hotel or riad in Marrakesh to Ouarzazate, crossing the High Atlas and the pass of Tizi-n-Tichka (2260m). At panoramic viewpoints, there’ll be opportunities to stop to take pictures. After lunch in Ouarzazate, we visit the Kasbah of Taourirt in the town centre, once the residence of the Pasha of Marrakech and a symbol of the feudal period of the lords of the Atlas. In the afternoon we drive along the Dra’a Valley to reach the village of Agdez for the night in a traditional kasbah.

2nd day: Agdez – M’hamid
After breakfast, a visit to the Kasbah is planned, before driving off-road further down the Dra’a Valley to Zagora for lunch. In the afternoon, the trip takes us to M’hamid which marks the end of the paved road and the beginning of the desert.
A one to two hour camel takes us to the nearest high dune where the view of the sunset is magnificent. The night is spent in our own beautiful camp in m’hamid

3rd day: M’hamid – Chegaga
After breakfast return to M’hamid, across the now usually dry Dra’a River, to visit the old village. In the afternoon, the 4×4 takes us to the Erg Chegaga dunes, travelling some 60km off-road. This route passes different features of the desert: ‘erg’, ‘reg’, ‘hammada’, and the Sacred Oasis to dunes far away from civilization, in the desert proper where the silence and the expanse of sand is overwhelming. Here you could take a second camel ride if you wish. Dinner and the night are in a traditional bivouac of nomadic tents.

4th day: Chegaga – Ouarzazate
Rise and be awed by the sunrise over the dunes and afterwards a hearty breakfast. The road takes us through another 90km of desert with varying scenery: Lake Iriqui, mountains and fossils.  Lunch will be in Foum Zguid, the first village after the desert, where it is also possible to freshen up with a shower. From here the drive back to Ouarzazate is along paved roads via the village of Taznakht, famous for its Berber carpets and rugs, and we arrive in the course of the afternoon. Here in Ouarzazate you stay in a traditional riad for the night.

5th day: Ouarzazate – Marrakesh
After breakfast we make a morning departure to the Kasbah of Tifoultoute and the cinema studios, then continue to the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, the backdrop to many Hollywood blockbusters and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Lunch will be there at Ait Benhaddou, before driving to Kasbah Telouet, the palatial residence of the former Pasha of Marrakesh, Thami Glaoui. From here we cross the Tizi-n-Tichka pass, the highest pass in Morocco, and reach the city and the end of our adventure at the end of the afternoon.
