1st day: Fes - Merzouga
After an early breakfast at your hotel or riad in Fes, your English speaking driver / guide will pick you up as early as possible, 07h00 AM in winter time and 08h00 AM in summer ( that will allow you enough driving time to catch the sunset in Erg Chebbi ) Your Fes to Marrakech desert tour will start crossing the plains of Saiss towards the Cedar forests of the Middle Atlas Mountains past Ifran and Azrou. You can spot Barbary apes on the side of the street and stop for some photos. Continue to Midelt, where you will stop for lunch. From here you will carry on crossing Ziz Valley driving past thousands of numerous palm trees and Kasbahs to Erfoud, then to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi Dunes, where your camel caravan will be waiting for you to ride your camels like nomads to watch the colour-changing sunset over Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Drive your camels back to your Sahara desert camp to freshen up before getting ready for your dinner under the stars while entertained by the local nomads playing their drums. Overnight at your Sahara desert camp.

2nd day: Merzouga - Dades Gorges
After an early sunrise camel ride, meet your guide in Merzouga. Today the drive will feature one beautiful scene after another including the stunning oasis of Tinghir where you will be able to take a walk along Todgha river visiting Berber villages and learning about the life style of the local inhabitants before you visit the magnificent Todgha Canyons and have lunch on the spot. In the afternoon, drive along the Kasbah road to Dades Valley where you will have the opportunity to visit one of the fortified Kasbahs before you arrive to your boutique guest house.

We continue to Ouarzazate past Skoura oasis famous for its date palm trees, then to Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou where you will have lunch before a visit of the Kasbah, a UNESCO world heritage site, that has been used as a set for various Hollywood movies, fashion and commercial shooting. The Kasbah is well preserved and consisted of various Kasbahs packed together and appears as a single unit. In the afternoon, we begin our descent through the Atlas Mountains past Tizi Ntichka Pass passing by various Berber villages with houses built with stones and mud.
