1st day: Agadir - Ouarzazate
Morning departure from Agadir to Ouarzazate passing by Taroudant, known as “the little Marrakesh”, Taliouine and Taznakht. From here the road continues to the kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.
This is the most famous Kasbah in Morocco and is a UNESCO World Heritage site, which we visit after lunch.
In the afternoon, a visit to the Film Studios (where scores of these films were shot and the sets are still intact: Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Asterix and Obelix, Game of Thrones….)
is scheduled, before continuing to Ouarzazate where you spend the night in a hotel.
2nd day: Ouarzazate - Merzouga
The morning departure takes us from Ouarzazate to the Todra gorges via the oasis of Skoura, travelling off-road to see all the Kasbahs, some sadly in a state of disrepair but idyllically placed amongst the palm trees.
The main road passes through the valley of the roses and the Dades valley to the Todra gorges where we stop for lunch.
In the afternoon, our trip continues to the dunes of Merzouga for an hour camel ride to reach the dunes of Erg Chebbi (250m).
From the top of the dunes the sunset is spectacular. Here, at Erg Chebbi Dunes, we will have dinner and spend the night in a campsite.
3rd day: Merzouga - Agdz
If you wake up early enough, you can watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the colour of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight.
The return to the hotel in Merzouga for having a shower is on camel back again and, after having breakfast,
the itinerary continues to the valley of Draa via the villages of Rissani, Alnif, Tazzarine and N’Qob where we stop for lunch.
In the afternoon, the journey takes us to Tanasikht from where we drive off-road along the ancient caravan route in the Draa valley, with its huge palm trees and ancient village.
At the end of the afternoon, Agdez offers dinner and a night’s rest.
