Package Itinerary

Day 1 Marrakesh – Agdez

Morning departure at from your hotel or riad in Marrakesh to cross the High Atlas Mountains via the Tichka pass. On our way we will visit several Kasbahs including Telouet, which belonged to the Lords of the Atlas, the Glaoui family, and which now stands in ruins after the last Pasha fled the country following the departure of the French. From there you continue to Ait Ben Haddou along the Ounila Valley. This is the most famous Kasbah in Morocco and is a UNESCO World Heritage site that we visit. Later we continue south to Agdez, where the Draa Valley begins (D)

Day 2 Agdez – Chagaga

After breakfast we take the ancient caravan road. On the way, we pass many Sub Saharan villages and gardens so that you can gain a better idea of the way of life along the oases. We drive to M’hamid, the gate to the desert, to the dunes of Erg Lihoudi, where we stop for lunch. Here a two-hour camel ride is scheduled. Later we continue to the Erg Chagaga dunes with 60km of off-road driving. These dunes are far away from civilization, in the desert proper and the silence and the expanse of the sand are overwhelming. (B,D)

Day3: Chagaga – Taroudant

After breakfast we drive another 90 km across the Sahara over the stony desert and now dried-up Lake Iriqui. At the edge of the desert at Foum Zguid, we drive north to Taznakht, famous for its Berber carpets. Then we head to Taliouine, the heart of the saffron growing region. The road takes us on to Taroudant, where we stop for the night. (B.D)
