Stunning views!

Thanks to Hamid and Touring In Morocco, I was able to visit the salt mines of the OUNILA valley and give clothes, school objects, and gifts to these so welcoming but poor people. What a pleasure to be able to help all these people while enjoying the exceptional setting of this valley, one of the best memories of this Exceptional trip where the adventure is at the end of every detour of the road, far from the usual tourist circuits. The kindness of our Guide Hamid is equaled only by his immense Berber culture and his perfect knowledge of the land. We really enjoyed our time in the Sahara desert with the Berber people and we hope to repeat this experience again someday.

Destinations' overview of our 3 days desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga:

The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou

Undoubtedly, the fortified village or the ksar of Ait Benhaddou is one of the famous places for tourists in  Morocco. This world heritage site lies in the southern slopes of the High Atlas mountains. If you are willing to discover the beauty of Moroccan clay architecture, this village is one of the best examples. Since 1987 this Ighrem has been counted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although it has old buildings and that most of the villages like these have been abandoned, Ait Benhaddou stood for centuries and became an unmissed destination. Even more, in the past, it was the main stop for traders that used to have long ways with the camels.

As additional information, Ait Benhaddou village is not a ksar as many call. Because, usually a ksar is not built with Kasab(Bamboo in English), and as this village is constructed with Bamboo it is better to call it only a Kasbah. 

What makes this village more unique is being a destination for movie makers rather than tourists. For it is amazing buildings that look like thrones, it has been chosen by many directors as in the movie Lawrence Of Arabia and the series of Gladiator.

Our 3 Days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert, has the best plan for the best visit to this unique Kasbah.

Ouarzazate

Join our 3 days from Marrakech to Merzouga desert and visit the Ouallywood of Morocco. This phenomenal city is halfway to the desert of Erg Chebbi and usually taken as a stop station for lunch. The city’s name is in Berber and it means “Without noise”. In Ouarzazate lies one of the international airports in Morocco that offers many tickets for those who are willing to do a quick desert trip. Like Ait Benhaddou this city is a good site for Movies and series and known worldwide.

The main places that most tourists visit at this site are the Atlas Studios and the Kasbah of Taourirt. Cinema Studio Atlas the main place where they shoot movies. As mentioned Morocco has many kasbahs, some even say they are more than a thousand. The Taourirt Kasbah is one of the most unique fortified villages in Morocco as it was built in the shape of a maze by the family of el Glaoui clan. Although this latter is one of the impressive Kasbahs in Morocco, it is less visited by tourists that usually prefer to pass by the Atlas studios and save time. 

Finally, Ouarzazate is home to the biggest station of the concentrated solar power plant in the world. This reflects the importance of using natural resources in Morocco. However, our 3 day Marrakech itinerary doesn’t include this station as it is not allowed.

Merzouga Sahara desert

Morocco desert is for sure worth to be the highlight of all Morocco desert tours. Merzouga is a word that came from Merzoug, a family that used to live here firstly. Also, Merzouga is divided into many spread villages, you may hear Hassi Labied, Takojt instead of Merzouga. Moreover, you may hear the word Lala Merzouga, which is referring to the biggest Erg sand dune. Not to mention, there are 12 regions in Morocco, Merzouga is located in the region of Draa Tafilalet. Plus, it is in the province of the fabulous city Errachidia. In the last years, Merzouga became an unmissed destination for tourists as it is known for its golden dunes and good people. The main income of its citizens is all about tourism that is why they give their best to keep it a clean and safe place. 

Merzouga offers a set of amazing activities and views that you can do and see. Firstly, there is the most beloved one, riding the camels and crossing the golden dunes. This is the most booked activity of all besides of glamping in the desert under the shiny stars. Furthermore, the desert offers many other activities such as the quads or buggy rides. However, if you are looking forward to deeply discover the Sahara, you will need to take a Merzouga desert tour by the 4×4 or by camels. Among the things that you will discover, there are the Berber Nomads that still live in tents, Gnawa people, Oases… Also, there are many adventure lovers that take a days circuit with camels, so they go for days riding and spending nights in the silent wildness.

Todra Gorges

The Atlas Mountains and Todra Gorges

Our 3  days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert is your chance to pass by the famous range of the Atlas mountains and Todra Gorges. Firstly, on the way from Marrakech, we pass by the High then Anti Atlas mountains while in between there is that famous Tizi nTichka pass. 

As known, the Atlas mountains are a range that covers three countries, Morocco, Algeria, And Tunisia. However, they are not a continuous chain of mountains as it has some long distances that separate them. On the way crossing these mountains, we take one of the longest curved roads in Morocco, Tizi NTichka about 200 km. Along the way, many Berber families built their houses and made different small villages. Moreover, on this pass, many people use Argan oil to produce cosmetic products. Here, our Marrakech 3 day itinerary will take you to visit some cooperatives.

Todra or Toudgha Gorges is one of the most beloved places in Morocco, especially for climbers. In general, what people like are the canyons that reach about 300m and separated by a river. Berbers that live in the area usually bring their herd to the spring and water them there. Todra is not just a tourist destination but also for locals and the area citizens. They head there to relax or sell some traditional products such as the carpets.
