The 5 day Sahara Desert Tour will begin at 8:30 am when you meet your driver at your riad or hotel in Marrakech.

We will have fun while admiring nature’s splendour and taking pictures of the historic Amazigh (Berber) Villages. After that, we’ll go down a narrow road to Telouat Kasbah, where you may sample the local cuisine. We’ll go to the Ounila Valley in the afternoon, where you can see small, deserted berber settlements in the high mountains where families are still residing in dilapidated clay homes. The sahara will continue to the kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, where we will have the opportunity to visit the well-known landmark, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986 due to the fact that several films, including Gladiator, Game of Thrones, Sahara with Penélope, and others, were filmed there. Ouarzazate, popularly known as the Gate of the Desert, is the final stop on our TOUR. We’ll have dinner and spend the night in a motel.

where the Rose Festival took place in May. The JOURNEY continues off-road to the settlement of Boutghra. Before continuing to the Valley of the Dades, we will stop at a Nomad family who reside in a cave to learn about their way of life and share a cup of ment tea with them.
