Shared Desert trip from Marrakech to Merzouga and Fez

This is a 3 days 2 nights Marrakech to Fes desert trip through Erg Chebbi – the highest dunes in Morocco. The first night we stay in a hotel in the Dades Valley, enjoying the beautiful views. The second night camels take us on a sunset camel ride through Erg Chebbi dunes to reach our Berber desert camp. During the booking process, you can always upgrade the overnight accommodation to a luxury desert camp, desert camps located next to the hotels or to a 3 or 4 star hotel based in Erg Chebbi.

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

We start our journey from Marrakech before 8:00 in a modern air conditioned vehicle. We drive over the Atlas Mountains to reach the first place of interest – the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou (free entrance). After a short break, we continue our journey to Ouarzazate for more sightseeing. The trip continues through the Dades Valley for about 125 km to reach our hotel, where we stay for the night.

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

After breakfast we continue along the Dades Valley and Todra Gorge, exploring the sights of this region. Once we reach Merzouga, we take camel trek into the magnificent Erg Chebbi dunes. Usually the camel trek is prior to sunset, so you may enjoy the sun setting from the top of the dunes. When we reach the Berber desert camp, we will be welcomed with fresh mint tea and have some free time to climb the dunes, enjoy the stars in the desert sky or sit beside the fireplace. For the dinner we will be served a traditional Berber Tajine or Couscous.

Day 3 : Merzouga Desert - Ziz Valley - Ifrane - Fez

The next day camels take us for the return trip back to Merzouga, during which you will be able to enjoy the sunrise view over the Erg Chebbi dunes. After arriving to Merzouga, we have a breakfast at the hotel. When ready, we start the journey to Fes in our modern brand new taxi with plenty of stops for photos, exploring places of interest and having lunch on the way. The arrival time in Fes is around 17:00 or 18:00.
