All along, several palm groves will bring their shades between Kasbahs and Ksours dotted with fields of corn, barley, Vegetables and henna plantations. Dinner and overnight at your cosy guest house in Zagora.

Lunch in M’hamid. Departure for the Erg Cheggaga dunes (300m) with 60km of off-road. This route passes different features of the desert; ‘erg’, ‘reg’, ‘hammada’, oases. These dunes are far away from civilization, in the desert proper … and the silence and the expanse of the sand are overwhelming. Ride your camels across the dunes and enjoy one of the most dramatic sunsets over the color changing sands. Dinner under the stars next to the camp fire, while entertained by the local nomads playing local music. Overnight at your private nomadic camp.

Today, you will have a genuine Morocco desert experience. A variety of activities to choose with extra charge, to keep you busy all day: • Quad biking • Camel trekking • 4X4 sand bushing • Trekking in the desert A pic-neck lunch will be served in Erg Chigaga.

At night, take advantage of the clear unpolluted skies to do some stargazing. Dinner and overnight at your private desert camp.

After breakfast, the road takes us through another 90km of desert with varying scenery ; Lake Iriqui, the mountains and fossils. Lunch will be in Foum Zguid, the first village after the desert, where it is also possible to freshen up with a shower. From here the drive back to Ouarzazate is along paved roads via the village of Taznakht, famous for its Berber carpets and rugs, and we arrive in the course of the afternoon. Dinner and overnight at your hotel in Ouarzazate.
