What we'll do

Day 1: Marrakech – Ait benhaddou – Ouarzazate- Dades Valley

To start our 3-Day Morocco tour from Marrakech to Merzouga our driver/guide will pick-up from your hotel/riad in Marrakech at 8 am and then drive you through Tizi-n-Tichka, a well-known, scenic pass that will take you through the impressive high atlas Mountains reaching an altitude of 7,415ft, it links Marrakech to Ouarzazate, and offers stunning scenery.

The first stop of our journey would be Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO world heritage site, where we will explore the modern part of the town , with all the touristy shops you’d expect. A short walk down the hill and across the bridge will bring us to the old parts of the town that countless producers have used as a film location, including Lawrence of Arabia, The Jewel of the Nile, Games of Thrones and many more …

After lunch, we will continue our drive passing through Ouarzazate and the palm-lined Skoura, heading towards the Dades Valley, a limestone river canyon with impressive rock walls reaching up to 525 feet high.

Day 2: Dades Valley – Todra Gorges – Sahara desert

On the next day of our 3-Day Morocco tour from Marrakech to Merzouga, we will leave the beautiful valley, towards Todra gorges, “the magnificent canyons of morocco”, where we will explore its remarkable orange cliffs and cliff-sided canyons, the perfect combination of atlas mountains and charming desert.

Later on, we will pursue our 3-Day Morocco tour from Marrakech to Merzouga passing by the Rissani Sahara, where we will get a tour of the old village, visiting its colorful market, exploring its ancient culture and getting a real glimpse of the authentic Moroccan architecture.

Finally, we will arrive at the golden gate of the Sahara desert, Merzouga, where we will take our camels trekking through the golden sands of Erg Chebbi arriving at our cozy desert camp, where we will be spending the night under the Saharan starry night sky.

In contrast to the scorching hot daytime temperatures, the Sahara desert at night is quite different, we will get to gaze up at the pristine Milky Way overhead, without the city glow to wash out the starlight, and we may just witness a shooting star. The Sahara desert under the stars is breathtaking, almost surreal against the silhouette of the cascading dunes.

Day 3: Camel Desert Tour - Drive Back to Marrakech

The last day of our 3-Day Morocco tour from Marrakech to Merzouga starts bright and early in the morning, we will wake up to catch a magical sunrise over the golden sands of an endless Sahara.

After a delicious breakfast and a warm shower, we will head back towards Marrakech, Morocco’s red city, where we will drop you off at your desired destination/ accommodation marking the end of our 3-Day Morocco tour from Marrakech to Merzouga.

Meet the Local


I'm Moha from Sahara Desert Merzouga , I have found my passion for Culture and Language amongst the majestic sand dunes in the south east of Morocco ” Erg Chebbi”, which is located in Merzouga village. There me and my family led a Nomadic path, wandering through the desert with our family and camels possessing only a tent for shelter. I'm very passionate about educating and informing the general public about our culture and little-known nomadic way of life and about all the great secrets that Morocco holds. I would like to share with you the life of Morocco and the nomadic people in the Sahara Desert. A way of life in a stunning part of the world which by its very nature allowed you to reconnect with yourself and go home with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
