After breakfast in the morning we depart from the hotel in the direction of Ouarzazate. We shall take the mountain passes of The High Atlas mountain, we make a few stops on the way to visit a couple of old Kasbah’s with fantastic views reaching in the far distances. One of these is Ait Ben Haddou which was recently featured in the “Game Of Thrones “ series.
In the morning of day two we Depart from Ouarzazate south-east in the direction of the sand dunes of M’hamid. Before Arriving we visit multiple Kasbah’s and ancient village’s located in the Draa valley where people settled near the Draa river. We shall have lunch in one of the many restaurants near the river ( mostly dry in the summer) before continuing to M’hamid. When arriving there the group has the opportunity to get on a camel ride north of M’hamid to the Erg Lihoudi dunes to witness the sunset. After this we have a relaxing evening ahead of us beneath a starry night at the desert camp.
After a nice rest in the morning we head back to M’hamid to take a tour around this old city, later in the day we head southwards with a four by four in the direction of the Erg Chegaga dunes, this is about one hour of desert offroading. This place gives you a true feeling of being in the Sahara with a calm panoramic horizon of sandy dunes. We spend the night beneath a starry night at a desert tent camp, with a fantastic view of the milky way galaxy.
People have the opportunity to wake up early to witness the sunrise. Or you can sleep in before the next day, we will travel further off road west through the desert. This will take us one and a half hour until we find the next city in Foum Zguid, here we will take time to relax an have lunch. We then head north-west back up via tarmac roads in the direction of Marrakech across the Atlas mountains.
