What to Expect
Day 1 : Marrakech - Kasbah Aït Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate (200 km)
Enjoy a three day tour of the incredible sites around Marrakech with this comfortable private tour. Our days together begin early (at 8:30AM), and we will soon travel towards Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. The spectacular High Atlas Mountains will thrill you with their stunning peaks, as we travel up above 7,400ft (2260m) over the Tizi-N-Tichka pass. Nestled in the hillsides, make sure to keep an eye out for the Berber villages that dot the landscape. After three hours of driving, we finally arrive at Ait Ben Haddou for lunch. Soon after, we will head to Ouarzazate, the “doorway to the desert”, where you will soon see why it has been the backdrop for films such as “Lawrence of Arabia”, “The Mummy”, “Gladiator” and many many more. Here you will have the chance to visit the Film Studios and the kasbah. Dinner will be provided along with your overnight stay here in Ouarzazate.

Day 2 : Ouarzazate - Agdz - Zagora - M'hamid - Désert de Chegaga (250 km)
Day Two finds us ready for more. After a filling breakfast, we venture towards Zagora via Agdz. Here we will see the enormous Palm groves of the Draa valley, with their nearly 11 million Palm Trees! From here we continue on to M’hamid, the last village before the desert unfolds before us. Cars just won’t do it anymore, so we switch to a more natural form of transportation -- the Camel! We trek over dunes for several hours before arriving at the Bivouac, a camp with traditional nomadic tents located on the Oasis where we will spend the night. Here we can relax and enjoy some local drum music around the campfire, before enjoying the scrumptious dinner prepared by our hosts.

Day 3 : M'hamid - Tamegroute - Zagora - Ouarzazate - Marrakech (450 km)
Our Third and final day together is our longest travel day yet, but you’ll hardly notice with the amazing things you’ll discover along the way. We begin early to admire the sunrise and have breakfast in the desert before departing back for Marrakech. We will pass by the village of Tamegroute, best known for its old library and traditional pottery. We stop for lunch in the Tamnougalt Palm Groves, before finally crossing back the Atlas mountains over the Tizi-N-Tinififft (5400ft; 1160m) and Tizi-N-Tichka (7400ft; 2260m) passes. We arrive back in Marrakech by late afternoon, where we part ways after three incredible days together.
