Day 1: Ouarzazate – Skoura – Todra gorges – Merzouga
Erg Chebbi Dunes : Departure from the hotel at 8am towards Erg Chebbi sand dunes. We first visit the Kasbah Amerhidil in the fascinating Skoura palm grove, and then we continue to Kelaa Mgouna characterized by a mixture of green tree gardens and flourished roses. We follow our way to Tinghir through Dades valley and head to Todra Gorges for lunch in a restaurant situated in the heart of a 300m high canyon. Here there will be a possibility to hike for an hour inside the valley.
In the afternoon, we leave to Erfoud via Tinejdad with its old underground irrigation system, to discover an area of fossil extraction before we reach the dunes of Merzouga by Erg Chebbi. After a 15 minute rest, we ride camels directly to the oasis where you will enjoy the night with dinner and entertainment.
Day 2: Merzouga – Desert Camp (Camel Ride)
In the morning we meet our desert guide and upload the camels with the bare essentials for your one night stay under the stars. After 2 hours ride, we will have a one and half hour lunch break under the shadow of a desert tree (tamarisk) before heading towards the camp to your nomad tent traditionally made of goat skin and camel hair. Relax and drink a mint tea while an evening meal is prepared. After dinner under the stars, enjoy the Berber songs and drum played by your guides before spending the night in your tent or under the gleaming stars.
Day 3: Merzouga – Tazzarine – Draa Valley – Zagora
After a quite night, admire the sunrise over the dunes and enjoy the typical breakfast before we ride our camels back to the hostel.
