Day 1: Pick up in Errachidia airport - drive to Merzouga night in the hotel

On your arrival at the airport of Moulay Ali Cherif in Errachidia, one of our team will be waiting to meet and greet you. You will then be driven south along the Palm groves and ksour of the Tafilalet region. You will see the landscapes changing and the desert appears in shades of oranges, reds and golds as well as the black rocky hamada. Once in Merzouga, you will be shown to your hotel where a welcome mint tea will await you. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel.

Day 2: Explore Merzouga with jeep - Camel Trekking and night in the desert

In the morning, your drive will come to take you for the start of your 4x4 adventure. Included in the day will be a visit to Khamlia; a village of Sudanese descendants who remained after they were freed as slaves. They perform a very soulful Gnawa experience for you. There are mines, hidden villages and oases to discover as well as off road trips. In the afternoon, you will meet your camels for the ride across the dunes to your nomadic camp. There, dinner will be prepared, music around the campfire and a million stars above your head.

Day 3: Merzouga Desert - Erfoud - Ziz Valley - Midelt - Azrou - Ifrane - Fes

An early start today to catch the desert sunrise. Breakfast and back to meet your driver riding the camels across the silence of the dunes. First stop of the day will be to visit one of the fossil workshops in Erfoud; home of the majority of Morocco´s mineral and fossil fields. The journey then follows the gorges of Ziz Valley and through mountainous regions to nomadic pasturelands. In Midelt we take a lunch break. The mountains give way to giant cedar forests and we will stop so you can watch the indigenous Barbary monkeys in the trees. Hidden in this forested region is Ifrane, you would almost think you are in the Alps with the sloping rooves and architecture. Last stop of the day will be in Fes; the ancient mediaeval spiritual medina with its 9000 labyrinth of car free streets.
