Marrakech - Ouarzazate (240 km).
Early in the morning we make our way across the High Atlas Mountain via the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass observing some of Morocco's
most picturesque scenery to the oasis town of Ouarzazate. We will visit the Glaoui Kasbah at Telouet and the nearby
fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, a World Heritage Site that contains the best preserved collection of Kasbahs in Morocco.
Ouarzazate - Todra Gorge (200 km).
After breakfast we depart for Todra Gorge via the Valley of the Roses, the "Valley of 1000 Kasbahs" and Dades Gorge.
After stopping for lunch we will drive through the impressive Dades Gorge along a route less travelled and somewhat off the
beaten track where you will see more ruined Kasbahs, cliffside ksars and amazing rock formations of different shapes and colours.
The landscape is nothing but spectacular, a deep river valley with patchwork green fields which rise steeply to road level,
and beyond that a flat desert plateau and all in the shadows of the snow-capped Atlas.
Todra Gorge - Erfoud - Merzouga (180 km).
After breakfast we depart for the Merzouga Dunes (Sahara Desert) via Erfoud. On the road you will see the Rissani Oasis before
crossing the sandy track that leads to the dunes. Merzouga village is located in front of the big dune of Erg Chebbi.
From here we will take a camel into the desert and spend the night at a traditional Berber camp and experience total peace
Merzouga - Ouarzazate (360 km). Rise early
and climb to the top of the dunes and experience the magical sunrise and after breakfast we take our camels back to Merzouga
before departing for Ouarzazate via Alnif and Tazarine, a vast stony plain.
