Here, you will have the opportunity to observe the Barbary monkeys.

Drive to Merzouga via Midelt and along the Ziz Valley (one of the long valleys of palm trees in Morocco). In the afternoon, arrive at Merzouga and enjoy your stay at a beautiful riad overlooking the golden sandy dunes with dinner and Breakfast.

Day 2Explore Merzouga Desert

The second day of your Fes-to-Marrakech Desert Tour starts with a delicious breakfast in your riad. First, you will visit the small town of Khamlia. It is where you can listen to a unique style of folklore called Gnawa music, played by the locals, who are originally from Sub-Saharan countries. Next, you will drive off-road to M’Fis, an abandoned village with mines of lead, a mineral once used to make Mascara.

Following, you will also have the opportunity to learn about the nomadic lifestyle with a visit to one family living behind the Erg Chebbi Dunes near the borders. Most nomadic families serve tea to all people who visit them.

In the afternoon, you will have an epic camel ride across the high dunes of Merzouga to your desert camp. On the way, you will stop on a high dune, where you can experience sandboarding while watching a stunning sunset. After dinner, you can relax around a campfire under the starry sky while the camp staff plays drums and happily teaches you how to play them. Enjoy a magical night.

Day 3Merzouga Desert – Rissani – Todra Canyon – Dades Valley

On this day of your 4-day Morocco Desert trip from Fes to Marrakech, it is worth getting up early in the morning to watch the sunrise near the camp. After you have breakfast at the camp, you can ride the camels or transfer by 4WD back to the original start location, where you will meet your driver.

Following, you will drive to visit Rissani town, which is home to one of the oldest souks in Morocco. Then, we’ll pass through small Berber villages such as Touroug, Tinjdad, and Tinghir, where we’ll stop to explore the Valley and Canyon of Todra.

Afterward, we continue our journey via Skoura’s picturesque palm trees. We will eventually make it to Ouarzazate, the “gate to the desert.” We”ll be seeing the studios where so many classic films were filmed.

Following, we will drive to Ait Ben Haddou, which is one of the most famous and oldest kasbahs (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986).

We had a very authentic experience for a 4 day tour with 2 night in the desert. It was a tour we won’t forget. The organization is good, the communication and explanation of the experience is well detailed, and the breakfast provided the morning after is superb.
Our guide, Mbarek, has made all the effort to explain the Berber life. Overall, I believe it is the best desert experience to have

This was the best experience we could have ever asked for! If you are thinking of booking this, then request Hamid to be your driver. he is full of knowledge about all things Morocco and has a great sense of humor, which made for a great road trip. We stayed at amazing hotels and ate extremely well on the trip while learning so much about the Berber culture out in the Sahara desert. Amazing Travel company!!

We had a fantastic 4-day trip from Fes to Merzouga and Marrakech. All the hotels were very nice and welcoming (the most special was the luxury camp in the desert!), Omar, our guide, was very knowledgeable and sympathetic; he explained lots of details on the way.
In all, a very professional company which we highly recommend!
