    3 Days Budget Morocco Desert Trip From Marrakech To Fez : 

    Day 1 : Marrakech – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah – Ouarzazate – Dades Valley

    We will meet you at your accommodation in Marrakech and drive to Ouarzazate through the dramatic Tizi ‘n’ Tichka pass (2260m), over the High Atlas Mountains, appreciating the beauty of the landscape on the twisted roads through the Berber villages where you will have the opportunity to explore how the argan oil is made by Berber women in their cooperative. Arriving at the famous Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, the largest Kasbah in Morocco, now it is a UNESCO matrimonial historical site and a house of many Glaoui family members, we’ll have lunch at the Kasbah before continuing to Dades Gorge via Ouarzazate, “the Hollywood of Africa”, along the “Road of the thousand Kasbahs”- the fascinating “sand castles”. Stopping at Kalaat Mgouna, “the rose’s city” known for roses and its annual festival during the roses harvest in May, then we’ll continue to our accommodation in the heart of the Dades Gorge. Overnight in our guest house/riad.( dinner and breakfast).

    Day 2 : Dades Valley – Todra Gorge – Merzouga – Erg Chebbi Dunes

    After breakfast , we’ll drive back through the valley to see the amazing rock formation known as “the monkey toes” and the still-standing 19th century Kasbah of Ait Yul. Leaving the Dades valley towards Tinrghir and the Todra valley you’ll see panoramic views of the old mud Berber villages overlooking the valley. Arriving at the Gorge is an opportunity to walk under the 300 m high red cliff, where many rock-climbers come to enjoy their preferred sport. Continuing on to Erfoud and Rissani where we’ll have lunch before heading on to the village of Merzouga where your camel will be waiting you. You will be welcomed with a glass of mint tea and a turban (desert scarf) before you ride your camel, guided by an experienced Camel Guide, to explore within the mysterious sand-sea of the Erg-Chebbi. Here you’ll spend your first night under the stars, or if you prefer, in a traditional Berber nomad tent.

    Day 3 : Merzouga Desert – Ziz Valley – Ifrane – Fes

    Wake up early morning to enjoy the sunrise over the dunes, possibly the best moment of Merzouga desert, followed by a typical breakfast in the bivouac of Merzouga, you will ride your camel back to the hotel where you have shower after shower you meet the driver and travel from Merzouga dunes to Fes via the beautiful Ziz valley, Errachida and Midelt.
