Before arriving at Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, Morocco's largest Kasbah, we'll drive across the Tizi Ntichka Pass, taking in the stunning beauty of the High Atlas highlands and admiring the amazing Berber towns. Built in the late 19th century by the last Berber chieftain, El Glaoui Et-Hami, it is currently a UNESCO matrimonial historical site that still houses numerous Glaoui family members. Lunch is by the Kasbah before we continue to Ouarzazate, “ the Hollywood of Africa”. Here you have the option of visiting the studios to see props used in some movies you might have seen, such as “Gladiator”, “Jewel of the Nile” “the last temptation of Christ”and “The Sahara”. Overnight in our fancy riad with dinner and breakfast.


After breakfast in the riad , we’ll leave to explore the fascinating Dades and Rose Valleys. Our first stop will be at Skoura to walk within the Birds Valley and visit the beautiful and well preserved Kasbah of Ameridil. Then we’ll continue to the village of Kalaa M’gouna, famous for its roses fields and rose products. A rose festival is held here every May each year, when the roses are harvested. Since this is the road of the thousands Kasbahs you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take some beautiful pictures. Our journey continues to boutaghrar area where we can meet Berber families still living in caves with their gaots and sheep . After lunch with Berber family,we continue to the Dades Gorges where you will enjoy seeing the amazing Rock formation called “the monkey Toes” and the still standing Kasbah of Ait yul. Overnight in a traditional Berber guest house with dinner and breakfast.


After breakfast , we will drive towards Tinrghir and the Todgha valley enjoying the panoramic views of the old mud Berber villages overlooking the valley. Once at the Todgha Gorges you can walk under the 300 m high red cliff, where many rock-climbers spend their time. After lunch in the way,we will arrive to the village of Merzouga - where your camel will be waiting you. You’ll be welcomed with a glass of mint tea and desert scarf before you ride your camel, guided by an experienced Camel Guide, to explore within the mysterious sand-sea of the Erg-Chebbi. Here you will spend your first night under the stars, or if you prefer, in a traditional Berber nomad tent.


Your camel man will wake you up early in the morning to watch what well may be the best sunrise in your life ,then you’ll peacefully camel-trek back to the village of Merzouga. En-route you won’t fail to appreciate the unique beauty of the spectacular Erg Chebbi dunes - changing with the light as the day progresses. Arriving late morning back in Merzouga and after shower in the guesthouse, we’ll leave for Rissani - once Sijilmassa - the foundation of the Alaouite dynasty, the current ruling family. With most of the woman veiled, and men hooded, this is a very traditional Moroccan town. We’ll continue driving towards Agdz, via Alnif and Tazarine, before we get to the fascinating Draa Valley at the edge of the Atlas Mountains, along which lay hundreds of Berber Kasbahs. You will arrive at your accommodation in the evening. Overnight in a traditional guest house in the valley with dinner and breakfast.


After a luxurious breakfast , we we’ll head to Marrakech , enjoying the panoramic view of the palm grove and the scenic moon-like landscape with the beautiful contrast of the Berber villages and the Saghro mountains; an area that has been a popular location for Hollywood films, including The Last Temptation of Christ, Jewel of the Nile, and the Mummy.
