After we drive through the Tizin Tichka Mountain pass, we will get to one of the most interesting monument in the region: the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou. The Kasbah of Ait ben Haddou is a UNESCO world heritage site, because of its immense historical and cultural value.

The village where the Kasbah is located is called Tamgroute, and it is known for its artisanal pottery work. After this, we will head to another desert village called Mhamid, which is so remote that the tarmac road ends there. This is where we will spend the night.

Today we will be heading out to the Erg Chigaga desert, by camel trekking for around 4 hours from Mhamid village.  We will make a stop in the desert for lunch, then we will continue traveling into the desert in our 4×4 vehicles. After around 60 km of driving off-piste into the dunes of the Chigaga desert, we will finally arrive at our hidden camp. The evening will be filled with good ambience, delicious food, and local artists playing Berber drums. We will spend the night at the desert camp.
