Who hasn’t fantasized about cozying up amid sand dunes in the Sahara and gazing up at the stars? Everyone may live out their imaginations in Merzouga, which is located in southern Morocco. It is a tiny village in the Sahara desert, not far from the Algerian border. It is referred to as the entrance to Erg Chebbi, a vast area of sand dunes south of the city. Due to its well-known location, it is one of the top tourist destinations in this country. Marrakech serves as the beginning and end points for this 3-day tour from Marrakech to Merzouga.
Merzouga is where the tour’s major stop is located. On the other hand, it makes cultural stops along the road. Tizi N’tichka is the first destination, followed by Ait Ben Haddou, a fortified location. Before concluding your first day in Boumaln Dades, you travel later to Ouarzazate where you may see Atlas Studio. You will go to Todra Georges, Tinghir, and the desert the next day. You camp in this desert and ride camels. You will learn a lot on the tour, which is wonderful.
This trip to Merzouga offers the chance for animal lovers and wildlife photographers to get up close and personal with the wonderful animals that call this desolate place—which, although appearing hostile to life, is actually abundant in all types of animals—in their natural habitat. Desert foxes, gerbils, hedgehogs, many reptiles, and snakes can all be seen in the dunes around the oasis, but the Sahara’s majestic raptors, such as falcons, kestrels, and griffons, stand out above the rest. Numerous species of ducks and flamingos can also be seen in the lake of the Merzouga oasis, where they rest up before continuing on their arduous voyage to the Mediterranean marshes.
Although there are always available desert tours in Marrakesh, it is advisable to stick with our agency Morroco Travel for a fair fee. As the nation’s entryway, travels from city to city can include stops in the Sahara, like the Marrakech desert tours. Some of the greatest methods to visit the nation swiftly are the Marrakech desert trips 4-day to Merzouga and 3-day to Merzouga.
We rise early on the first day of our Marrakech desert tour and set off at 8 AM in the morning. We will travel through the High Atlas Mountains as we head south from Marrakech toward Dades Valley. We will cross the Tizi n'Tichka pass and arrive in the Dades Valley early. As a result, we'll take advantage to taste tea while wandering in the area's stunning sights.
While moving toward Merzouga sand dunes, Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah and the historic Telltouba will be your first stop. These two fortified villages, which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, offer an in-depth look at the methods used to construct traditional mud homes.
Before travelling toward Ouarzazate, you will have a delicious lunch there. You will go to The Atlas Studio, known as the Hollywood of Africa. You will also go to the Kasbah of Taourirt. Then you will continue southward toward the Dades Valley, passing through the magnificent oasis of the Skoura and the Valley of Roses. Les palmaraie, a paradise of palm and olive trees interspersed with kasbahs and small towns, encircle Skoura on all sides.
Arriving at Dades valley, you will go inside the previous Tiylit Castle, which housed several Jewish families for many years. The Kasbah of Mohdach, from where the French ruled their protectorate in the area during the 1930s, is also noteworthy. In a typical motel, the first night is quite tidy and cosy, ideal for driving. Transfer to hotel, spend night.
You will travel to the Merzouga desert on the second day of your 3-day Marrakech desert tour. Following breakfast at your accommodation, you set out on your journey. After there, you continue driving into Dades Valley, passing by picturesque traditional Kasbahs and Berber communities. You travel to Tingher while taking in the valleys covered in date palms. Then, as you drive through high canyons, you keep an eye on the surrounding, tall walls of grey and pink granite. For lunch, you stop in Tinjdad.
With our agency’s camel guide, you will have a camel ride once you have arrived at the captivating Erg Chebbi dunes. Finally, camels will transport you to your desert camp in Merzouga. This is the ideal chance for tourists who are attracted by the historic camel caravans in Africa to experience what it's like to be a nomad for a few hours. The camel ride instantly transports you to a postcard-perfect setting and brings back memories of your first-time seeing Aladdin. The most breathtaking sunset of your life will be there in front of you. You will never forget the magical sight that is created when the sun's rays strike the golden Erg Chebbi beaches.
You can enjoy singing and dancing in Berber while dinner is being served. Spend the night at your camp in the Sahara desert. It's crucial to wear warm clothes underneath and on top of your body because the desert's nighttime temperature drops dramatically.
Merzouga is a small town, so the sand dunes nearby practically never experience light pollution, making it an ideal place to observe the stars. The milky way above you and how dazzling and large the stars seem to be will astound you. Seeing billions of lights above you in all directions will be quite calming, and the best part is that it is totally free.
The driver will get you up early on the final day of your 3-day Marrakech desert tour so you can see the sunrise. As the first sunbeams start to warm the air and lessen the nighttime frost, dawn in the desert is also a stunning sight. There is no doubt that sunrise in the Sahara desert is a completely unique experience from sunrises elsewhere. You will then eat breakfast at your desert tent. After that, you'll ride a camel back to Merzouga to meet your driver.
You will travel a different route from Marrakech to Ouarzazate through Rissani, Alnif, Tazarine, N'kob, and Agdz (Daraa Valley). In the evening, the driver from Morocco Travel will deliver you to your Marrakech hotel.
Marrakesh is well characterized by its endless red-mud brick lanes, what appears to be organized anarchy and the amazing food that can be found anywhere. In this second-largest city of Morocco, you should be prepared to get lost if you are wandering on your own. However, when you tour the Medina's souks, you should accept that this is all a part of the city's charm. There is no doubt that it is a 24-hour city with exquisite textiles, cuisine, furniture, and entertainment all within a meter of one another, making it a feast for the senses. Our 3-day Marrakech desert tour will come to a conclusion when our driver drops you off at the airport in the late afternoon or early evening.
Marrakech Desert tours for 3 Days typically adhere to this schedule. It's the best since you can quickly explore the desert. However, if you have extra time, we suggest making a 4-day reservation because we can shorten the large trips. For instance, you might work on the car for up to 10 hours on the third day.
