At 8 am, we will pick you up at the hotel and drive to Merzouga crossing the Middle Atlas, a 350-kilometer mountain range from south-west to north-west. On the way, we will cross cities like Ifrane, nicknamed the "Moroccan Switzerland" for the architecture of their houses, and Azrou, one of the most famous Berber cities of Morocco. We will cross the valley and the gorges of Ziz and cross cities like Midelt or Erfoud. From Erfoud, we will take a desert track to Merzouga. We will spend the night in a hotel next to the desert entrance.
On the second day, we will devote to enjoying the most spectacular part of the Eastern Sahara. We will enter the desert in 4X4, visit nomadic villages, see oases and cross the dunes of Erg Chebbi. After the road, we will visit the famous village of Khamlia where are the gnawa. The descendants of the slaves arrived from Africa and we will appreciate their amazing folk music. At dusk, we will return to the hotel to take the camels that will take us to the Berber camp in the heart of the dunes, where we will dine and spend the night.
The last day begins with an unforgettable image, the sunrise in the desert. After sunrise, we will take the camels back to the hotel, where we will have breakfast and take a shower. On the way back to Fez, we will cross Tafilalt, Rissani (origin of the Alauí dynasty and former capital of the Alaoui sultans), Azrou and Ifrane. In Azrou National Park, we will stop in the Monkey Forest, where you can observe and even feed them. We will arrive in Fes and transfer to your hotel and end of our service.
