After breakfast we will embark on a picturesque journey towards Ifrane (the Moroccan Switzerland), through hills covered in forests of cork oak and giant cedar, home of a few Barbary apes. Crossing beautiful and tranquil passes over both the Middle and High Atlas ranges we will catch a first glimpse of the south’s incredible architecture. Lunch in Midelt, approached through a bleak plain of scrub and desert. The dramatic peaks of the High Atlas, rising behind the town, provide a spectacular background. Crossing Tizi-n-Talremt (Pass of the She-Camel), we will descend into a desert plain along the Ziz valley. We will then head south to Erfoud, a huge oasis containing over six million palm trees, edged by many ksours (fortified villages). Continuing along a striking route that marks the transition to desert, when we reach the amazing dunes of Erg Chebbi in order to enjoy our adventure with camels, see the sunset and the night in an equipped camp with drums music in the middle of the Sahara, this is a great opportunity to take lovely pictures of the sunset and sunrise. Night in a very nice camp with private shower/bathroom.
We wake up early enough so we can watch the spectacle sunrise in desert, when the colour of the dunes combine with the play of shadows to make an awesome sight. After breakfast we ride our camels back to the meeting poit with driver before leaving for Tinghir and Todra Gorges for lunch. The road passes through Tinejdad and the Todra gorges. This stunning area affords plenty of opportunities to walk, such as along the river through the gardens or up the road on the other side of the gorge. Later, we will continue to the Rose valley/Skoura. Night in a hotel/riad with private shower/bathroom.
After breakfast, we will drive through the villages of this charming area passing fields cultivated by the Berber women, with the peaks of the High Atlas as a fitting backdrop. Ouarzazate known as Hollywood of Morocco, we will visit the Panoramic views of the Taourirt Kasbah, then we make our way to the Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the backdrop to many Hollywood blockbusters, this is the most famous kasbah in Morocco. From here we start crossing the high Atla, Tizi n’Tichka. At late afternoon we will arrive in Marrakech.
