Pick up from your hotel/riad in Marrakech and travel towards to the verdant valley of Dades Gorge. Drive through the High Atlas Mountains and over the Tizi N’tichka Pass at 2.260m, which offers spectacular panoramic views of mountains, valleys and colorful Berber villages., We head to the UNESCO-listed Aït Benhaddou kasbah the fortified ksar with its beautiful Kasbahs. Ait Benhaddou has served as a natural scenery for many movie producers.
Travel south to Ouarzazate, also known as the ‘Hollywood of Africa’ for its Atlas Film Studios where several blockbuster movies were shot. Continue south towards Skoura palm grove where nearby we will explore Kelaa Mgouna, the town of roses, and reach the Dades Gorges passing through colorful Berber villages. Dine and stay overnight at a hotel.
After breakfast, the trip continues a short distance to Tinghir and the very different Toudgha gorges where you can take a short walk to appreciate the steep sides to the gorge and the narrow expanse of the sky above. From there, you continue to the Chebbi dunes via Tinjdad, and the Oasis of Tafilalet near Erfoud, famous for its Date Festival. Between Tinjdad and Erfoud, you can stop to go down into the fascinating underground water cannels deep below the earth, always cool and preventing the evaporation of this source of irrigation. In Erfoud itself, you can stop to see the workings of thousands of fossils made into all sorts of artefacts. Lunch is somewere along the way. Then you will take about tow hours camel ride in Merzoga toward the camp crossing the dunes. Dinner and a night’s sleep are in the Erg Chebbi Luxury Desert Camp.
Wake up early enough and you will get the chance to watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the color of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. The itinerary continues to the Draa Valley, via the village of Tazzarine (featured in the film Babel). In the afternoon the journey takes us to Tansikht with its huge palm trees, at the head of the Draa Valley to Agdez, via the Anti-Atlas mountains with its amazing rock formations in the mountain sides (1660m). We head to Ouarzazat and finishing at last but not least to Marrakech.
