    Morocco desert tours for your Morocco Holidays

    Day 1:Marrakech - kasbah Telouet - Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate

    200 km — 32 off-road

    As we ascend through the winding roads of the Tizi NTichka pass, reaching an altitude of 2,260 meters, we’re greeted by panoramic vistas that showcase the majestic beauty of the High Atlas Mountains. Amidst this breathtaking scenery, we embark on a journey through the rugged terrain, immersing ourselves in the untamed wilderness of Morocco. A slight deviation from our path leads us to the remarkable Kasbah Telouet, a testament to Morocco’s rich cultural heritage. Once the stronghold of the Glaoui Pasha, this ancient fortress offers a glimpse into the country’s storied past and boasts awe-inspiring views that stir the soul. Continuing our exploration of Morocco’s architectural treasures, we arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou. Here, within the walls of this ancient Kasbah, life unfolds much as it has for centuries, with inhabitants dwelling amidst the labyrinthine streets of this historic enclave and in surrounding Berber villages, preserving traditions that have endured through generations. As the day draws to a close, we arrive at Ouarzazate, fondly known as the ‘Hollywood’ of Morocco, where we will spend the night in a quintessential Kasbah. Here, amidst the timeless charm of our surroundings, we reflect on the day’s adventures and revel in the unique allure of Morocco’s cultural heritage.

    Day 2:Ouarzazate - Anti-Atlas - Agdz – Draa Valley - Zagora

    160 — 22 Km off-road

    Following a restful night in Ouarzazate and a hearty breakfast at our hotel, we set out on the next leg of our journey towards Zagora. As we traverse the desert landscape, the scenery transforms, revealing lush oases and verdant palm groves that punctuate the arid terrain. The flat expanse of the desert unfolds before us, offering a captivating contrast of colors and textures. Our route takes us through the Draa Valley, a captivating stretch adorned with the longest palm grove in Northern Africa, stretching between the towns of Agdez and Zagora. Here, amidst the swaying palms and meandering river, we immerse ourselves in the tranquility of this verdant oasis, a stark contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. Arriving in Zagora, we encounter a city steeped in history and lore, often referred to as the gateway to the desert. The famous poster declaring “Timbuktu 52 days” serves as a reminder of the city’s strategic position along ancient trade routes. As we explore the streets of Zagora, we are enveloped in the timeless charm of desert life, where echoes of bygone eras mingle with the rhythms of modern-day existence. With each step, we are drawn deeper into the rich tapestry of Moroccan culture, as we continue our journey through this enchanting land of contrasts.

    As the morning sun casts its warm glow over the desert landscape, we embark on our journey towards Tamegroute, a hidden gem nestled amidst the sands of southern Morocco. Our first stop is the revered Zaouia, where we pay homage to its spiritual significance and marvel at its timeless architecture. Here, amidst the tranquility of this sacred sanctuary, we are transported back in time to a place where ancient traditions thrive. Next, we venture into the heart of Tamegroute to explore its renowned Koranic library, a treasure trove of knowledge dating back centuries.

Leaving Tamegroute behind, we set forth towards the Oasis of Tagounite, passing through the enchanting landscapes of Ait Isfoul. Along the way, we pause for a leisurely lunch in Mhamid, savoring the flavors of Moroccan cuisine amidst the desert oasis. Our adventure reaches its pinnacle as we embark on a thrilling journey into the dunes of Chegaga. With the wind in our hair and the sand beneath our feet, we ride camels through the undulating waves of golden sand, immersing ourselves in the timeless beauty of the desert. As evening descends upon the dunes, we gather around a crackling fire to partake in the age-old traditions of Moroccan music and dance. Here, beneath the starlit sky, we are enveloped in the magic of the desert, as the rhythms of the night carry us away to a world of enchantment and wonder.

    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.
