ITINERARY best 4 days desert tour Marrakech to Fes
Day 1: Marrakech – Ait benhadou – Ouarzazate – Skoura – Dades gorge
(Marrakech desert tours)
Welcome to Morocco!
For your first day on this Marrakech desert tour. Our driver/guide will pick you up from Marrakech (accommodation) early morning, traveling through the beaten paths of the Moroccan desert. But, before we do that, we will have to cross the high Atlas Mountains range, which will offer us breathtaking views to be remembered forever.
After enjoying the drive through the Tizi Tichka Mountain pass, the best road to get to one of the most interesting monuments in the region: is 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 Kasbah has been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, and The Mummy. After exploring the Kasbah, we will continue driving to Ouarzazate, where we will have lunch and visit the famous Atlas cinema studios museum.
Following this, now is the time to leave Ouarzazate and then start crossing the road of the thousand Kasbahs, the Skoura palm groves, and the Dades Valley. Here is the best place for having a good sleep.

Day 2 : Dades Gorge – Todra Gorge – Erfoud – Risani- Merzouga (Marrakech desert tours)
On the following day of the Marrakech desert tour, the fresh air of the Atlas Mountains will encourage you to stroll out through the Dades Gorges. Then, the start of the day begins: traveling towards the final destination of Merzouga village. Along the way, we will drive by mesmerizing valleys, lush greenery, and small Berber villages where “the real morocco exists” and stop to rest or take photographs.
However, crossing the villages of Rissani and Erfoud is a strong indicator that we’ve made it to the Sahara desert. Our family will take this opportunity to have a mouthwatering traditional lunch before continuing to Merzouga’s village, the gateway to the Moroccan desert.

At the edge of the Erg Chebbi dunes, Merzouga is the perfect location for us to begin our camel trekking expedition into the desert. The end destination of the camel trek is a lovely desert camp neatly hidden away between the dunes, where spending the night under the stars is a magical experience. The best Marrakech desert tours talks to you. The beats of Berber drums.
Day 3: Merzouga – Alnif – Tazarine – Agdez – Ouarzazate (Marrakech desert tours)
