if you have the time we recommend 4days from Marrakech to Fes Sahara Trip due to the long drive (approx. 16hrs in total).
Day 1: Marrakesh to Ait Benhaddou via Telouet
Transfer from Marrakesh across the Tizi-n-Tichka Atlas pass to the traditional Berber village of Telouet for a guided tour of the Kasbah of el Glaoui, former War Lord and Pasha of Marrakech. Continue to Ait Benhaddou to visit the World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, a spectacular fortified village (Ksar).
Day 2: Ait Benhaddou to Dades Gorge via Skoura and Rose Valley
Option to visit the Atlas Studios in Ouarzazate and continue to Dades Gorge via Skoura and Rose Valley (Kelaa Mgouna) where, in spring, Berber children line the route selling garlands of fragrant roses. Leave the main route at Boumalne Dades to drive past ruined hilltop Kasbahs, valley-floor gardens and the strange rock formations of the Tamnalt Hills.
Day 3: Dades to Merzouga via Todra Gorge. Erg Chebbi Camel Treks
Transfer to Merzouga via the Todra Gorge, the highest gorge in Morocco just 20m wide and over 200m high. Arrive at the edge of the dunes with the option to overnight in a hotel or go camel trekking in Erg Chebbi, with a desert guide, and sleep in a nomad tent at a desert camp where your guide serves dinner under the stars.
Day 4: Merzouga to Fez via Ziz Valley and Cedar Forests
Wake early to see the rising sun and then ride your camel back to Merzouga. After breakfast depart for Fes via the Ziz Valley Gorge and cedar forests where Barbary apes live – this is an interesting route with a stop for lunch in a Berber café. Drop off at your accommodation in Fes.
