3-Day Desert Experience from Marrakech
From US$129.96
Lowest Price Guaranteed
While short excursions can provide a glimpse of Morocco’s desert environments, multi-day tours offer much greater insight into Berber and nomadic traditions. With this adventurous multi-day tour, explore the High Atlas region, stopping at kasbahs, Berber villages, and a film studio, along the way. Spend the first night in a riad in the Dadès Gorges, and the second at a desert camp in Merzouga.
What to Expect
Day 1: Marrakech to Dades Gorges (D)
Start your day with a pickup from your Marrakech accommodations and begin your journey to the Dades Gorges. Cross the Tizi-n-Tichka Atlas pass and observe the High Atlas Berber villages. Continue to Kashbah Ait Benhaddou to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, then have lunch. Afterwards, head to Ouarzazate and visit the Kasbah Taorirt as well as the atlas studios. After your day of touring, finally check into your Dades Gorges accommodations.
Overnight: Dades Gorges hotel/riad

Day 2 : Dades Gorges to Merzouga (B,D)
After breakfast, depart to Erg Chebbi Sahara Desert in Merzouga and observe local Berber villages along the way. After checking into your hotel, ride camels across the sand dunes to your camp, then you watch the sunset.
Overnight: Berber Nomad Tents

Day 3: Merzouga to Marrakech (B)
Wake up early to watch the sunrise in the duns before riding the camels back to Merzouga. Have breakfast, then begin your journey back to your Marrakech accommodations.
