3 Hours Before Flight Time
Today is the start of your Morocco luxury tour, we drive from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou, via the Ounila Valley. Traverse the High Atlas Mountains via the highest main road pass in Morocco, at 2260m altitude, offering stunning views and exhilarating driving. The route passes lush valleys and traditional adobe Berber villages. After the pass, we get to the gateway of the desert where we will have a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. Visit this fortified village – essentially a living museum, it is a ksar comprising numerous dwellings, and for years used as the backdrop in many international films. Overnight at Riad in Ouarzazate Including Dinner and Breakfast.
Drive from Dades Valley to Merzouga, via the Todra Gorge (another striking natural canyon cleaved into the Atlas Mountains, by the Todra River). Option to stretch the legs and walk. After lunch continue to Merzouga, at the end of the sealed road, with the expanse of the Erg Chebbi dunes visible. Your driver will drop you at the meeting point with your camel caravan and you will trek on camel back for approx. 1 hour to reach your choice of desert camp (standard or luxurious) in time for sunset and home for the night in the dunes. Take an evening meal and then enjoy music and song at the campfire.
Wake early to admire the desert sunrise, take breakfast, then transfer out of the dunes by camel-back to rejoin your vehicle to take the road to Fes (or if you are travelling by 4×4, you can be collected at the camp). Your route today follows the course of the Ziz River. Pass through the spectacular Ziz River gorge before traversing the Middle Atlas Mountains (at approx. 1900m). On the north of the mountains, you take in part of Morocco’s vast cedar forests (close to Azrou), before reaching Fes late afternoon. The end of your Morocco luxury tour .
