Exclusive 5-day trip that immerses you in the authentic life in Morocco! Taste the hospitality of the nomads while spending a night in their caves in the mountains of the Dades Valley and experience an unforgettable night under a sky full of stars in the middle of the enchanting and mythical desert.
DAY 1: Marrakech – Airport
Warm welcome with some typical Moroccan sweet cookies, dates and a bottle of water.
We will bring you to your hotel or Riad and overnight in Marrakech.
DAY 2: Marrakech – Boumalne Dades
Spending a night with the nomads, living in caves.
After breakfast, we will start our journey driving through the Atlas Mountains. While driving and discovering the different landscapes and villages, you will understand the difference between the hectic life in the bigger cities and the peace and tranquility of the villages. We make stops to take some nice pictures of really nice highlights and we have time to drink a cup of coffee or Berber tea while crossing the high Atlas mountains to the south of Morocco. Then it is time to visit extensively the famous Ait Ben Haddou. Ait Ben Haddou is a Ksar: a set of earth houses surrounded by high walls. We can say a walled citadel made up of many Kasbahs (Kasbah = a term that refers to a single structure where a wealthy family resided) ! Nowadays, however, only 7 families live here, in a very basic way, without water or light. Many families have moved to the new part of the city, as, when it rains and the river grows, it is difficult to reach the other side and you remain completely isolated. Today Ait Ben Haddou’s Ksar is the set of many famous international films and has been nominated in 1987 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climb to the top and enjoy the astonishing view of the surroundings!
The journey continues to the beautiful Valley of Roses, to a very charming small village named Boutaghrar, surrounded by stunning nature. Be ready then for your “0FF ROAD” adventure! Guided by some local music in the car, the driver heads towards the rocky paths leading to the Bedouins living in caves. They will welcome you and will be happy to tell you all about their local habits, way of living, food, and so much more! Take a spot in the cave, enjoy a cup of Berber mint tea and immerse yourself in their way of living! Learn some Berber language, spend a little time with the children and enjoy the cooking and eating of a local dish. A once-in-a-lifetime experience you will never forget!
Overnight in the cave or outside for those who want.
DAY 3: Boumalne Dades – Merzouga
Spend an amazing night in the middle of the desert and dunes, under a starry sky!
Splendid good morning when you wake up by the sound of bleating sheep and goats, grazing around the cave. Time for a traditional breakfast. Unfortunately, it is time to say goodbye to your new family, as another new adventure is waiting for you! Experience the nomad lives in the desert, under a starry sky, encircled by sand and impressive dunes! First, we drive through the dazzling valley of the Dades Gorges, with its magnificent rock formations. We make a short stop at the top for an overwhelming view before going down to another Gorge, Gorges of Tinerhir, which leads you through delightful groves of date palms, pomegranate, fig, and olive trees. The namesake river that carved the gorges also feeds vegetation. This whole mountainous area is the heartland of the Aït Atta tribe of Berbers, who have inhabited the region for centuries. Time to stretch the legs for a moment and to make a short hike in the surrounding hills. On our way to the desert of Erg Chebii, we pass along the Berber village of Tourog where we change clothing: you will totally look like a traditional Berber, also with an original henna tattoo (if desired). Ready now to continue to the last stop: the wonderful and beautiful Sahara Desert of Merzouga!
At around 4 PM we arrive in Hassi Labied, the first town found in the Erg Chebbi desert, where we exchange the 4×4 for a livelier means of transportation: the camel. The camel excursion of about 2 hours starts here. Enjoy the beauty of the dunes, the colorfulness of the sand, and the unbelievable silence while admiring the setting sun! The trip will lead you to a magical spot, in the middle of the desert, with tents, blankets, and all materials for cooking. Upon arrival, your guide will show you how to prepare and serve a real Berber tea and a local dessert dish for dinner!
An evening and night you will never forget! Sleep under the open sky in a desolate desert with only the sand and stars around you!
DAY 4: Merzouga – Marrakech
Sense of peace that you can only experience in a desert-like this!
At 6 o’clock in the morning, the guide wakes you up to climb a high dune, from where you can see the sunrise. After breakfast, you go back to town by camel. You will have time to take a shower and change clothes at a hotel. We drive back to Marrakech and stop at Kalaa for lunch. During the trip, we can stop at any time to take pictures of panoramic views or other amazing places. In the late afternoon, arrival at your hotel or Riad in Marrakech.
DAY 5: Marrakech – back home
Time to say goodbye and fly back home
Or you can extend your stay with extra nights in Marrakech or in another area in the country (Essaouira at the seaside, …).
