Witness the stark contrast between the north’s urban landscapes and the south’s traditional Berber architecture and culture. Imagine the vital role the Draa Valley plays in sustaining life in this arid region. As we journey south, we’ll pass through a string of captivating Berber villages, including Foum Jrann and Tazarine. Keep your eyes peeled for signs of the region’s rich cultural heritage. Tazarine, for instance, is renowned for hosting Morocco’s largest Henna festival, a vibrant celebration of tradition. We’ll then embark on a thrilling off-road adventure, venturing beyond the paved roads to reach Tafraoute. This village, nestled amidst breathtaking scenery, is home to the Ait Khabach Berber people.

Immerse yourself in their rich cultural heritage as they showcase their exquisite local crafts. But the true highlight awaits – a captivating concert of Gnawa music, a unique musical tradition passed down through generations. These vibrant rhythms will surely leave a lasting impression. After a memorable experience in Khamlia, we’ll resume our journey, arriving at our comfortable hotel in Merzouga – the gateway to an unforgettable desert experience. As the afternoon unfolds, prepare to embark on a traditional camel caravan ride. These gentle giants will carry you across the golden sands, transporting you to the foot of the majestic dunes.

    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!

    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.
