Day 1: Marrakech to Zagora
You will cross the High Atlas, the Tizi n’tichka towards the beautiful village of Ait Benhaddou.
Arriving to the site, you will be able to enjoy the splendor of its historical castle which is built on a hill, overlooking the area.
Later, you will stay in the middle of an arid land of 1160 m in altitude in Ouarzazate the city of Thousand and One Nights.
Within the last kilometers connecting Zagora with Ouarzazate, you will admire the most beautiful valleys of Morocco and its beautiful villages full of handicraft shops.
In the past, the Oasis of Zagora was a caravan center, the starting point of the great trans-Saharan convoys.
Once there, you will ride a camel to get to the camp bivouac and you will be able to admire a wonderful panorama of sunset, you will then have your dinner and you will spend the night in tents, near the dunes of Zagora.

The driver Ibrahim was a ton of fun as were our local guides, particularly Zaid at the camel Safari. Multiple stops on the way there gave us spectacular views of the Moroccan mountains, desert, and canyons. The Desert camping was very glamorous and the camel ride wasn't excessively long (long camel rides are rather uncomfortable, not the case here.) Live music at the camp with sinks and bathrooms but don't expect showers in the dune camp. You can take them in Merzouga if you need but you don't get sweaty or gross in the desert so I passed for a day.
Amazing price for an amazing experience. There are no words to describe the sky full of stars in the middle of the desert, or the multilingual guides we had all along the way!
There was lots packed into this three day adventure. Be prepared for long days of travel. Our tour guide and van driver, Ayoeb, was fantastic and checked in with each of us to make sure we were taken care of.
