Visit the Berbers, see the desert, and trek across Morocco on our desert adventure tour to Morocco weekend trips
Friday — The start of your desert adventure:
Once you land, we’ll pick you up from Marrakech airport and you’ll stay overnight at a guesthouse en route to the desert.
This is either a three and a half hour drive to the guesthouse of Kasbah Ellouze near the UNESCO heritage kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, or a five-hour drive to the guest house of Kasbah chez Yacob in the Draa Valley.
We take a route via the Atlas Mountains and the Tizi n’Tichka pass (which rises to an altitude of 2,260 metres!) and the Ounila valley, an area full of ancient villages and kasbahs.
It might seem like a long drive, but with plenty to see and lots of stops on the way, you’ll wonder where the time has gone.
Saturday — Sahara, stars, and kasbahs:
The five-hour drive takes you through a variety of incredible locations including the Draa valley, Zagora, Tamegroute, M’Hamid, and then we head into the Sahara for two hours.
Along this journey, we’ll discover kasbahs, markets, ancient libraries and more!
We’ll take a camel ride to the Berber camp to watch the sunset, and enjoy a night under the crystal clear stars in your own private cosy tent.
Sunday — The road back to Marrakech:
The return trip is eight hours and is more direct and more remote than the route to the desert. This trip goes via Foum Zguid (three-hour drive through the desert), Tazenakht (known for its stunning rugs) and then back over the Tizi n’Tichka pass.
Once we get back to Marrakech, we’ll drop you off at your riad where you can get a good night’s sleep.
Monday — Taking the journey home:
You can spend the Monday relaxing at the riad, exploring Marrakech, or just enjoying the atmosphere at one of the many local restaurants. We’ll pick you up and drop you off at the airport two and a half hours before your flight departure, giving you time to check in, get through security and check out the airport stores for those last minute gifts and mementoes.
