2 Days trip from Marrakech to Zagora Desert
Experience the very best bits and pieces of Moroccan culture through our private guided tours! This tour starts at the city of Marrakech, leading to Merzouga and the Sahara Desert, for a maximum Moroccan experience. Just like the rest of our tours, it is customizable and can be personalized to fit your plans.
Day 1: Marrakech – Ouarzazate – Merzouga
This 2 days desert tour begins when we pick you up from your accommodation at Marrakech and start driving through the scenic High Atlas Mountains to Merzouga, our destination. This road trip is one of the most exciting ones you can have in Morocco, considering that we will be driving through the Tizin Tichka mountain pass (the highest one in all of Morocco!).
After enjoying our drive and stopping for cool pics, we will get to Ouarzazate city, also called the Hollywood of Morocco. This city holds great value in filmmaking history, since it is home to the filming studios where many international movies were made, such as Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven.
After exploring the city’s touristic attractions and its Kasbahs, we will have a traditional lunch then continue travelling through the beautiful Draa Valley. Its magnificent landscape and greenery is unrivaled in all of Morocco.
While driving through the area, we will stop at the Oasis of Alnif to appreciate the beauty of this unique Berber city, then continue our journey to finally arrive at Merzouga. Once we get there, we will first check into a hotel to shower and relax for a bit.
This is where we will get to enjoy the magnificent desert scenery while riding on the back of camels through the sunset. The camel ride will take us to the hidden desert camp where we will have tasty traditional dishes for dinner. You will experience the genuine desert culture with Berber music and drums playing around you, before finally going to sleep in nomad-style tents.
Day 2:Merzouga – Toudra – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah
This next morning, we will wake up to the most beautiful sunrise in the middle of the Desert. You can enjoy the area for a bit by walking around the dunes, before heading to breakfast. We will have breakfast in Merzouga then leave towards the famous Todra gorges, which is a hiking spot that attracts enthusiasts from all over the world.
After a walk through the gorges, we will drive to the valley of Dades and explore the area called “the road of the thousand Kasbahs”. This road will also lead to the famous rose city, Kalaat Mgouna, where all of Morocco’s rose-derived products are made.
We will head back to Ouarzazate city next, where we can take a tour of the cinema studios and museum. After this, we will explore the famous nearby Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, which is known for being the backdrop of many historical movies. The Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah is also a UNESCO world heritage site.
After having lunch at the Kasbah, we will travel through the beautiful High Atlas Mountains once more to return to Marrakech city where our tour started.
