Tour operator Company in morocco, Fez city

From Fez to Mhamid lghizlane ( 8 days )

Many travelers have to choose one region of the Sahara Desert in Morocco to visit while on their trip.

Those choices are the Erg Chebbi desert (located near Merzouga) or the more-removed Erg Chigaga desert (located south of Zagora and M’hamid).

This Sahara Desert trip is the first itinerary (as far as we know!) that takes travelers through both regions of Morocco’s beautiful Sahara landscapes.

This trip is not for the weary or meek since it involves longer days in transport, some rough 4×4 transport (especially in Erg Chigaga), and isolated regions not yet on the tourist trail.

While you’ll be roughing it through the day, at night, you’ll be able to enjoy high-quality accommodations (even our tents are nice), great meals, and the friendliest company you could hope to have.

If explore the Sahara is one of your dreams, make it come to reality with this unique route.

Day 1: Pick up in Fez | Agdz (D) (5hrs)
This morning, you will be picked up in Fez and continue over the High Atlas Mountains, Ouarzazate and then to Agdz for the night.

You’ll be staying in a Kasbah-style hotel.

Day 2: Tamegroute | Mhamid | Erg Chigaga (D) (5hrs)

Today, you’ll continue on your Morocco tour along the road to M’hamid.

Along the way, you’ll be able to visit holy town of Tamegroute, known for its library with ancient manuscripts, and green pottery.

Then, it’s two more hours off road to Erg Chigaga, where you will arrive to our camp site where you can enjoy a camel ride at sunset.

Then, prepare for a surreal night under the stars.

Dinner will be served al fresco and you’ll be sleeping in a Bedouin-style tent.

We have both standard and deluxe camps available in Erg Chigaga.

Day 3: Zagora (D) (4hrs)
After enjoying the sun rise this morning and having breakfast, you’ll get on the road to Zagora.

You’ll be staying in a lovely bed and breakfast.

If it’s hot, you can relax in the shade of the gardens or take a dip in the pool.

Day 4: Alnif | Erg Chebbi (D) (8 hrs)
This morning, you’ll leave Zagora and head through Alnif to Erg Chebbi for an other Sahara adventure.

Once at the hotel in Merzouga, you can store any baggage and take an overnight bag with you.

Following, prepare for a one hour jaunt on camel back into the desert.

(Walking alongside the camels is also an option.)

The night is spent dining alfresco under the stars followed by a night in a Bedouin-style tent.

The tents are in our own private area.

We have both standard and deluxe camps available in Erg Chebbi.

Day 5: Merzouga (D)
This morning, you’ll be able to rise with the sunrise to grab some photos before hopping back onto the camels for the short ride back to the hotel.

Once there, you can enjoy a shower and breakfast.

You’ll have the option of having a free day to relax or to enjoy a visit to a local music village and head to Rissani for a guided visit and a special lunch.

Day 6: Tinjedad | Skoura (D) (5hrs)
Today, you’ll be heading on the road again.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to stop along the way for photos.

You’ll then head through Rissani, home to several fossil shops, before continuing on the road to Tinjedad for lunch.

On the road to Skoura, you can choose to drive up into either the Todra or Dades Gorge. Either choice will add two hours to the above transport time for the day.

In Skoura, you will be staying in the Skoura palm grove, known as the Valley of 1000 Kasbahs.

Day 7: Skoura (D)

You can enjoy a walk of the oasis valley following breakfast or simply relax in the gardens of this corner of paradise.

Day 8: Ouarzazate | Ait Ben Haddou | Drop off in Marrakech (6 hrs)

After leaving Skoura, you can enjoy a visit of Ouarzazate and the UNESCO site of Ait Ben Haddou before returning over the mountains and to Marrakech.
