Our 6-day tour from Marrakech takes you to the pretty Merzouga desert. On the first day, we will meet you at the airport and take you to your accommodation. If you arrive early, we can take you to some exciting places within Marrakech like Jamaa el-Fna Square. The square becomes very busy and cultural when it is evening time. It’s an excellent place to experience Marrakech’s unique charm. We will bring you back to your accommodation at night.

Day 2: Marrakech guided tour

On the second day of our 6-day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga, we will explore the most important sites in the Red City. After breakfast, a local guide will come to pick you up and take you around the old city. We’ll show you two beautiful palaces, Bahia and El Badi, which are great examples of Moroccan-style architecture. We’ll also take you to see some special Tombs made by the Saadian people who used to rule Marrakech. Then, we’ll visit the Koutoubia mosque, which has one of the biggest towers in Morocco. In the afternoon, we’ll take you to the lovely garden of Majorelle, where people go to relax. Majorelle Garden was created by a French artist who wanted to live and work in Morocco. Finally, in the evening, you’ll have free time to wander around the lovely Jamaa El Fna square.

Day 3: Marrakech to Boumalne Dades

We are on day three of our 6-day trip from Marrakech to Merzouga desert. Our first stop is Boumalne Dades, which is a beautiful place in the Atlas mountains. We will start our day by driving through the High Atlas mountains, on a long and winding road. The people who live there are called the Berbers, the indigenous people of North Africa. Their main income is from herding animals. Since they are well known for making Argan oil, we will take you to see how it’s made.

After that, we will continue driving along the road until we reach the top of the mountain. We will make a stop at 2260m above sea level. Next, we will drive to the famous fortress of Ait Benhaddou. To get there, we will walk through a river and see impressive buildings made of clay. Ait Benhaddou is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Afterward, we will go to the city of Ouarzazate. It’s an important city in the southeast with an airport and a big solar energy station. This city is also famous for being a great place to make movies. After that, we will go to Boumalne Dades to spend the night.

Day 4: Boumalne Dades to Merzouga desert

After breakfast, we continue our 6-day tour from Marrakech to the Merzouga desert. We will visit the stunning Todra Gorges. With canyons over 300 meters high and a flowing river, you will have some time to go hiking. Then, we will travel through Berber villages, Tinegher, and Tinjedad to the golden dunes of the Sahara desert. You will ride on camels to capture photos and take in the beauty of the desert. When we arrive at the desert camp, you will explore the area, watch the sunset, and try sandboarding. After dinner, we will gather around the campfire to listen to enchanting Berber music while admiring the starry sky. It will be a memorable evening in the desert.

Day 5: Merzouga desert tour

This is the fifth day of our trip from Marrakech to the Merzouga desert. Today, we’ll explore the desert and its surroundings. You can wake up early to see the beautiful sunrise. We’ll take a car to see more places. First, we’ll visit the Berber Nomads. They live in tents and rely on the desert’s resources to survive. They are very friendly. Next, we’ll go to a kohl mine and see a beautiful view of the desert. Then, we’ll visit the village of Khamlia, where the Gnawa people live. They come from different African countries and have made Morocco their home. You’ll learn about their culture and music. Lastly, we’ll go to the Oases of Hassi Labied and see the green plants in the sand.

Day 6: Merzouga back to Marrakech

We will have a big breakfast at our desert camp and then ride camels back to Merzouga. We will leave early at around 8:00 AM. To get back to Marrakech, we will go through Alnif with a stop in Nkob for lunch. After that, we will go straight to Marrakech and drive through the Ait-Saouen pass. At the end of the trip, we will make sure that you get dropped off in Marrakech, which is the end of our 6-day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga.

6-Day Marrakech to Merzouga Desert Tour Reviews

Awesome 6 Days!

The 6 days desert tour from Marrakech was my first trip with my family outside of my country. We landed in Marrakech's airport and Aziz was there waiting for us with his car and offered us a drive to the Hotel. We did some customizations on the tour as we wanted to end it in Casablanca instead of Fes. Touring in Morocco was always there in help, and everything was well organized. Our tour guide and driver Aziz is a great person filled with great values and passion. In general, I highly recommend this tour and touring in morocco for travelers!

Wonderful Experience!

Morocco was on my bucket list from a long time ago, on this year after saving some money, I and my friends decided to take the chance and go visit this country that everyone is talking about. When we arrived at the city of Marrakech, we felt the beauty and the amazing time that is waiting for us in the six days. the people were so welcoming and guested us well. What I really liked about the tour is the camel ride in the desert and that full of stars night! we also went to the see the Berbers that live tents. This really was a wonderful experience that I wish to go one more time and visit Morocco. Thank you so much for the good service! see you soon!

A Must-visit Country

This country is just amazing! So much beauty and energy everywhere. Every time I remember this 6 days trip, it puts a smile on my face. Everything was Amazing....the visit to the villages especially Ait Benhadddou...the camel ride... The night in the desert is out of words... Good food, good atmosphere, with music and everything in the middle of the desert with a sky and stunning stars....the best thing to be able to talk to your people and get to know their culture better. Thank Aziz because without you it would not have been the same. I recommend it to everyone and I will repeat it for sure!
