Marrakech desert tour , The Sahara Desert is a place you really can not skip when you are visiting Morocco. Sahara Desert tours are organized by many companies and there are loads of possibilities in order to fit it into your itinerary.
Marrakech Desert Tour – Day 1
From Marrakech, we left around 8 AM and the driver took us to Merzouga that day. Merzouga is the city that is located at the beginning of the Sahara. On our way, we’ve stopped several times.
Once arrived in Merzouga you will change the car to a four-wheel drive vehicle which takes you to your camp just in time to see the sunset. We decided to go glamping, which is sleeping in a tent but way more luxury. KamKamDunes was the camp we booked in advance.
That night we had a great dinner, played music together and looked at the millions of stars from the dunes.
Marrakech Desert Tour – Day 2
The next morning you will be awakened very early to get out, hop on a camel and get to the top of a dune. Once on the top, the sun will rise from the horizon, temperatures rise quickly and all the dunes get these beautiful soft orange color
After breakfast, you will leave in the direction of Marrakech. You will pass and stop at several sites like Tinghir, Tinjdad, Jorf, and Erfoud. Once the sun begins to set you will stop in Boumalne Dades (or a nearby village) where you will spend the night in a traditional Kasbah. A kasbah is a house/palace under the control of a family where many families multiple families are living.
Marrakech Desert Tour – Day 3
From Dades to Marrakech was the most beautiful part of the route. You will drive through the Atlas mountains, where you probably will drive along deep cliffs and see snow. Visit Ait Benhaddou, a famous place where a lot of movies scenes are taken. Drink a good mint tea on top or buy a rug on your way down. Just before sunset, you will arrive in Marrakech.
