Leaving Marrakech at 7.00 AM we travel towards Ouarzazat, driving some 200 km through the Atlas Mountains where you will see beautiful landscapes and many authentic Berber villages.
Our first big stop will be in ‘Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah’ a 16th century fortified village and a UNESCO world heritage site. Many big movies have been shot here, (Gladiator, Laurence of Arabia, The Mummy, Game of Thrones …). We visit the fortress before travelling on to Ouarzazat, the capital city of cinema in Africa, where we stop for lunch.
After lunch we drive towards Agdz and Zagora through Draa Valley (the oasis of palm trees). At Tinfou you leave the van to ride camels to the nomad camp just as the sun sets. The camel ride is approximately an hour and a half.Once we arrive to the camp the nomads will welcome you by the tea and give you your tentes after they will provide you with the dinner before making a fire and playing local music for you enjoying the stars and you will spend a night under the nomad tent.
We wake you up in plenty of time to see the beautiful sunrise over the dunes. We eat breakfast at the camp before returning to the van to drive back to Marrakech. On the way back to Marrakech we will stop to visit the Draa Valley, (the oasis of palm trees) and later we have lunch in the Atlas Mountains. We arrive back in Marrakech for around 18.00.
