Day 1: Marrakech – Ouarzazate
Morning departure from your hotel/riad in Marrakech at 8 o’clock and driving across the High Atlas mountains, there will opportunities to stop and take photos. The first scheduled stop is at the Kasbah of Telouet, which served as a palatial residence and the headquarters of the powerful Glaoui tribe. Here you will stop to have a leisurely lunch. Then the route crosses the Oumila Valley and leads to the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, the oldest and most famous Kasbah in Morocco, where you spend the night in a riad. Alternatively, you can continue the 30 kilometres to Ouarzazate to spend the night there.
Day 2: Ouarzazate – Dades Gorges
After breakfast, you set out towards the Dades Gorge, passing the Skoura Oasis, where numerous ancient kasbahs, some sadly in ruins, stand amongst the palm trees. From here, our route takes us through Kalaat M’Gouna, the Valley of Roses. From here, you take an off-road route to have a better impression of the landscape, we will have a glass of tea with them before continuing to the Dades Gorge for lunch. This leaves you half a day to walk in the valley or to spend it relaxing or simply strolling by the fields and gardens, or having tea with a Berber family you stop in the Dades gorge in a guest house for the night.
Day 3: Dades – Merzouga
After breakfast, the trip continues a short distance to Tinghir and the very different Toudgha gorges where you can take a short walk to appreciate the steep sides to the gorge and the narrow expanse of the sky above. From there, you continue to the Chebbi dunes via Tinjdad and the Oasis of Tafilalet near Erfoud.
Between Tinjdad and Erfoud, you can stop to go down into the fascinating underground water channels deep below the earth, always cool and preventing the evaporation of this source of irrigation. In Erfoud itself, you can stop to see the workings of thousands of fossils made into all sorts of artefacts. Lunch will be in a Berber village along the way. At the bivouac, you are welcomed with a glass of tea before taking a camel ride to watch the sunset from the top of the dunes. Later there is dinner and the night in a nomad tent at the foot of the dunes.
Day 4: Merzouga – Agdez
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 drive back west to the Draa Valley takes us via the villages of Tazzarine where we have lunch. In the afternoon we continue to Tanasikht, along with the track of the ancient caravan route, reaching the Draa valley, abundant with large palm trees and ancient kasbahs, at Agdez, where we spend the night in a kasbah.
Day 5: Agdez – Chagaga
After breakfast, there is an opportunity to visit the Tamnougalt Kasbah, the oldest in the Draa Valley and which some consider being the most interesting. For a short while, we go off-road along some of the ancient caravan routes between the mountains and the river, passing many villages and gardens. The trip continues along paved roads to the village of M’hamid, which marks the end of the paved road and the beginning of the Sahara. Here we pause for lunch in a riad set in a beautiful garden full of palm trees. In the afternoon, we leave for the Erg Chagaga dunes. These dunes are far away from civilization. Here you can take another camel ride if you wish. Dinner and the night are in a bivouac there.
