    Excursion from Agadir towards Erg Chegaga Sahara Desert

    Day 1:Agadir – Taroudant –Taliouin – Taznakht – Foum Zguit

    After breakfast, get ready to delve into the heart of Morocco at 8:00 AM! Our first stop is the captivating city of Taroudant, known for its beautiful medina. This maze of winding alleyways and vibrant stalls boasts a similar charm to the famed Red City of Marrakech, but with a more relaxed atmosphere. Prepare to be dazzled by colorful displays of spices, handcrafted souvenirs, and local textiles. As we journey onward, keep your eyes peeled for the majestic Argan trees – these unique trees are endemic to Morocco and play a vital role in the region’s ecosystem. Next, we’ll arrive in Taliouine, a town famous for its saffron – often referred to as “red gold” due to its precious nature. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to visit a saffron cooperative and gain insights into the intricate process of harvesting and cultivating this prized spice. Our cultural immersion continues in Taznakht, a town renowned for its exquisite Berber carpets. These vibrant rugs, woven by skilled local artisans, are a true representation of Berber heritage. After browsing the colorful displays, we’ll savor a delicious lunch at a local spot, allowing you to experience authentic Moroccan flavors.With full bellies, we’ll set off towards Foum Zguit in the afternoon. Along the way, we’ll pass by charming Berber villages, each with its unique character, and lush oases that provide a refreshing contrast to the surrounding landscape. Finally, we’ll arrive at our hotel for a relaxing overnight stay.

    Day 2:Foum Zguit – Iriki - Erg Chegaga

    After a restful night in Foum Zguit, we’ll embark on a captivating journey towards Chegaga. Our adventure begins alongside lush oases teeming with Acacia trees. These distinctive trees, characteristic of the Mediterranean region, thrive here in the Moroccan desert. Keep your cameras ready – we’ll stop for photo opportunities to capture these unique desert dwellers. As we venture deeper, the landscape transforms into a dramatic “reg,” a stony desert also known locally as a “hammada.” This vast expanse, devoid of vegetation, creates a powerful sense of remoteness. Our journey continues past the captivating Lake Iriki, a body of water that appears and disappears throughout the year. Surrounded by towering dunes, it’s a true desert marvel. Before reaching Chegaga, prepare for a truly unforgettable experience: a picnic lunch amidst the vast desert landscape. Savor a delicious meal in the tranquility of the dunes, soaking in the silence and serenity of this unique environment. With full bellies, we’ll finally arrive at the majestic Erg Chegaga dunes. Here, you’ll embark on an unforgettable camel ride, exploring the golden sands and experiencing the magic of the desert from a unique perspective. As twilight paints the sky with vibrant hues, gather around a crackling campfire and immerse yourself in the beauty of traditional Moroccan music and dance. This enchanting evening will culminate in an overnight stay at a comfortable nomad camp, allowing you to drift off to sleep under a blanket of stars.

    Day 3:Chegaga - Mhamid - Tamgroute - Zagora - Draa valley - Ouarzazate

    After witnessing the breathtaking sunrise over the Chegaga dunes, we’ll depart towards a hidden gem – the Sacred Oasis. Imagine a captivating scene: a verdant oasis bursting with palm trees, a stark contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. This haven provides a glimpse into the traditional life of desert nomads, allowing you to experience their unique culture firsthand. Leaving the tranquility of the oasis behind, we’ll venture onwards to Mhamid, a town pulsating with vibrant energy. Here, the annual International Nomad Festival celebrates the rich cultural heritage of these fascinating communities. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting during this time, prepare to be dazzled by lively music, colorful performances, and a truly unforgettable atmosphere. Our adventure continues southward, taking us to the charming Oasis of Tagounite, nestled within the territory of the Ait Isfoul tribe. Immerse yourself in the serenity of this lush haven before continuing to Tamegroute, a town steeped in history. Here, we’ll delve into the past with a visit to the Zaouia, an ancient Koranic library. Witness the skilled work of local pottery artisans and explore the intriguing underground kasbah, a hidden gem waiting to be unearthed. As the day draws to a close, we’ll arrive in Zagora, a city aptly nicknamed the “Desert Gate.” A captivating inscription proclaims “Timbuktu 52 days,” hinting at the legendary journeys that once began here. Savor a delicious lunch in the area before setting off towards Ouarzazate in the afternoon. Our journey takes us through the majestic Draa Valley and the rugged Anti-Atlas Mountains, offering stunning scenery along the way. Finally, we’ll arrive at our comfortable hotel for a relaxing overnight stay.

    Day 4:Ouarzazate – Ait ben Haddou – Taznakht – Taliouine – Agadir

    Fuel up for a fascinating morning in Ouarzazate after breakfast at your hotel or riad. We’ll begin by exploring the imposing Kasbah of Taourirt, a fortified castle that whispers tales of Morocco’s rich past. Next, we’ll step into the world of movie magic with a visit to the Ouarzazate Cinema Studios. This is where blockbuster films like Gladiator, Game of Thrones, and Prince of Persia were brought to life! Continuing our journey through time, we’ll arrive at the breathtaking Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fortified ksar (a traditional earthen village) is still inhabited, with Berber families living within its ancient walls and surrounding villages. Wander through the narrow alleys and soak up the unique atmosphere of this historical gem. With a camera full of memories, we’ll bid farewell to Ouarzazate and set off towards the vibrant coastal city of Agadir. Our route takes us through the colorful town of Taznakht, renowned for its exquisite Berber carpets. We’ll also pass by Taliouine, a town famous for its saffron production. Finally, after a captivating journey, we’ll arrive in Agadir, marking the end of our exciting Moroccan adventure. Enjoy your time exploring this lively seaside resort town!

    Great excursion, great guide! We went on a 5-day excursion with Marrakech Expedition, from Marrakech to the desert near Merzouga and back. Everything was very well planned, we were taken to the main sites and places, all the hotels they booked for us were excellent. Our guide, Mohammed was really great, an expert driver and a great guy to talk to, we really enjoyed the time we spent travelling with him. Highly recommended!

    Great! We travelled with our two little kids, 3 and 6, on a 8 day trip through Morocco using the driver service of Marrakesh Expeditions. Omar, our driver, was excellent! Very kind and patient with the kids, suggesting interesting places to visit on the way to our planned destinations and helping us with whatever we needed. An unforgettable experience for us, the kids can’t wait to visit this beautiful country & people again. Thanks a lot!

    Marocco on the road Contattato Ali via mail qualche mese prima abbiamo concordato il viaggio con partenza e rientro da e a Marrakech. L'agenzia è stata assolutamente all'altezza delle nostre aspettative e ci ha consentito un viaggio piacevole e senza problemi. Alla nostra guida, il giovane simpatico Mohamed, il nostra più grande grazie per essere stato un compagno di viaggio attento ai nostri bisogni e rispettoso dei nostri desideri.

    Amazingly enjoyable trip through Morocco Wonderful trip organised for us which afforded us understanding & views of Moroccan landscapes, country, culture and people. Excellent accommodations chosen in amazing Rhiads for us. Excellent restaurants for all meals were organised for us. Excellent cultural stops and shopping opportunities. Excellent guides very knowledgable, local and with good English. Driver Moha was excellent driver & kept us on time and enjoying everything at the same time. Superb custom trip in an incredibly interesting country. The only thing at all negative was the first night’s accommodation in Casablanca (very late arrival through incredible traffic after our flight, no dinner available, apparently nowhere to purchase bottled water except from the waiter, and room was very noisy on main roads with hotel staff unhelpful. ) Would recommend this company and their tour planning. Had an amazing trip. Loved it.
