Know More about this tour

You will be picked at your hotel or riad between 7 and 7:30. Drive toward Ouarzazate, enjoying views of Berber villages and towns dotted along the way contributing to the contrast of colors. Cross the Atlas in the port of Tichka (7414ft / 2260m), where you can admire the different valleys in the area. Cross towards the south side of the Atlas and note the unmistakable difference in vegetation with eyes fixed on the semi-arid plains before reaching the silent city of Ouarzazate, famous for the films studios. You will also be able to visit the Kasbah Taourirt.

Afterward, you'll go through the port of Ait Saoun with its stunning views (gorges, canyons ...). The Draa Valley and the river that gives its name form an ecosystem that alternates the aridity of the surrounding mountains and Saghro Siroua with the green of the palm groves.

Once in Zagora you'll not waste any time and get on your dromedary for an approximately 2-hour ride into the desert. The Haimas at the bereber campsite lead us to spend the night in the dunes under a starry sky.

After enjoying a night in the desert, go back to Marrakech. En-route, stop to visit (by your own) one of the country's most famous Kasbahs, the set of Kasbahs of Ait Ben Haddou, which have served as a backdrop to several movies (for example Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator). Arrival in Marrakech (aprox. 19:00 hrs) and end of service.

    Not very happy with this tour. The driver did not speak English!! The van had no air conditioner-it was broken!!
    I have a video-that if you want to see it confirms what the driver did-cross a river and then we got stuck!! We had to climb out of the mini bus and were rescued by fellow travelers!! The group was so angry.
    Some people had the luxury tents???? didn't even know these existed?? They also had toilets and not holes in the ground like we did!!
    We arrived to ride the camels in the dark at 10:30 p.m.!! not ideal.
    I'm sorry but I would not recommend this tour at all.
