Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Agadir - Dades Valley
Departure from Agadir to Ouarzazate in the morning, via Taroudant,  Taliouine, and Taznakht. The road continues on to the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, Morocco’s most famous Kasbah and one of the country’s eight UNESCO World Heritage sites. After lunch in the village, you have the option of visiting the Kasbah and climbing to the top to admire the view. A photo shoot at the Atlas Film Studios is planned for the afternoon. Numerous Hollywood blockbusters were filmed here, and the sets are mostly still in place (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Asterix and Obelix, Game of Thrones.) It’s only an hour and a half to the Dades Valley, where you’ll spend the night in a riad or hotel.
Day 2: Ouarzazate to Merzouga
The journey from Dades valley to the Toudra gorges via Imider, a rock paradise, begins early in the morning. There is free time to explore the 300-meter-high cliffs and river. We take a break for lunch in one of the Berber villages. Our journey continues in the afternoon to the Merzouga dunes for a one-hour and half camel ride experience. The sunset is spectacular from the top of the dunes. You dine and sleep in a luxury camp with a private bathroom, king-sized beds, beautiful Moroccan furnishings, and lamps tastefully arranged to enhance your enjoyment of the dunes’ silence and beauty.
Day 3: Merzouga - Agdez
If you get up early enough, you can see the sunrise, when the color of the dunes and the play of shadows is breathtaking. After breakfast, the tour continues to the Dra’a Valley, Morocco’s longest valley. We stop for lunch in the villages of Rissani, Alnif, Tazzarine, and N’Qob on the way. The journey to Tansikht in the afternoon takes us across the Dra’a River, which is sometimes in full spate but often little more than a trickle. We take a left here and drive off-road along the ancient caravan route, which follows the valley with its massive palm trees and ancient villages. We stop in Agdz for dinner and a night’s rest at the end of the afternoon.
Day 4: Agdez - Agadir
After breakfast, we drive from Agdz to Taznakht, which is known for its Berber gelims and carpets. We pass through beautiful scenery and the Bouazzer mines on the way. This is a more remote and off-the-beaten-path area of the country. Later, we head west to Agadir, passing through the Tizi-n-Ikhsane and Tizi-n-Tighatine passes. We stop for lunch in Taliouine, Morocco’s saffron-growing capital, where there is an excellent small museum dedicated to the art of saffron cultivation. In the afternoon, the road takes us back to Taroudant, where we follow the often-dry Souss River and numerous argane trees on the hillside slopes back to Agadir, which we arrive at the end of the afternoon. Our Agadir desert tour to Merzouga get to and end here.

Reviews

Rachid took my boyfriend and me on a 4-day trip from Agadir to Merzouga to Fes, and we highly recommend it! Aside from the amazing camel ride through the Sahara desert, the excursion allows you to experience the real Morocco - how people live today, the different landscapes, the taste of a home cooked meal in a Berber village, and a 4-day history lesson with an expert guide (if you want to know and ask a lot of questions). Throughout the trip, we felt safe and the hospitality was exceptional. You will not be sorry.

Fantastic Trip

Everything about Camel Excursions was fantastic, from the first contact with Ismael to the pickup with Hassan and the entire journey through Morocco! I took a three-night, four-day trip from Marrakech to Merzouga (Erg Chebbi) and then to Fes. Ismael responded quickly via email. He answered all of my questions about the tour, where we'll stay, and how to pay. Everything was very clear and simple!
Rachid greeted us with a smile at our accommodation in Agadir. He carried our belongings to the car, and we were on our way! Our first day included visits to High Atlas Mountain, Ait Ben Haddou, Dades Valley, and numerous small villages. Rachid was so knowledgeable about everything that it blew our minds! On our car ride, we learned so much about animals, plants, and Moroccan life from him. It was a fantastic experience with him. He would stop in areas away from tourists with breathtaking views!

Some places to see while doing our Agadir Desert Tour to Merzouga

Agadir city

Agadir, the capital of Agadir-Ida Ou Tanane province, is located on the southern Atlantic coast of Morocco, at the base of the Anti-Atlas Mountains. It is a popular tourist spot due to its proximity to golf courses, wide crescent beach, and lively seaside promenade. The kasbah atop Agadir’s hill was destroyed in an earthquake in 1960, but the city’s original wall still stands today.

The Sahraouis (Sahrawi people)

The Western Sahara, southern Morocco, much of Mauritania, and the southwestern border of Algeria are all home to the Sahrawi or Saharawi people, who are an ethnic group and a nation in their own right. They have ancestry from the Berbers, Arabs, and Black Africans.
