Discover our itinerary through the Merzouga desert:
Day 1: excursion to the Merzouga Desert and the Dades Gorge
The first night we will spend it in the Dades Gorges, one of the most beautiful and spectacular in all of Morocco. Its structure has made this landscape unmatched, with the winding road, the lack of date palms, its rocky shapes known as "monkey fingers", and much more.
We will start the trip to Ouarzazate through the hills and the most beautiful landscapes of Morocco, crossing the port of Tichka, until we enter the famous Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, one of the best-preserved in the city.
We will continue our way to Dadas, where we can rest under the starry sky of the desert of Marrakech
Day 2: night in the Merzouga Desert in a Berber Haima
After getting up early, we will enter the Dades Valley and the Valley of the Roses on the way to Tineghir, a small town full of colors and contrasts, where the landscape of rocks and palm trees will take us to the famous Toldra Gorges.
We will continue our way to the city of Erfoud, bound for Rissani, a typical place in the area very little crowded by tourists where the inhabitants of the city go in search of food.
Our excursion continues until we finally reach Merzouga, the end of our tour today.
In Erg Chebbi we will meet the friendly dromedaries and, with them, we will go to the dunes to see the sunset and return to the haimas camp, where we will spend the night near the dunes. There we will rest in a Berber Haima under the blanket of desert stars.
Day 3: sunrise in the Merzouga Desert
If you are an early riser, you can enjoy one of the most impressive and colorful sunrises. The rise of the sun over the desert of Marrakech. After this, we will head back to our starting point, crossing the desert landscapes until we reach Ouarzazate, where we will take the road until we reach the red city of Marrakech.
The Todra Gorges, Rissini, the Draa Palm Grove - the largest in Africa-, and much more, will be the highlights that you will enjoy on our Excursion to the Merzouga Desert from Marrakech.
