DAY 1 – Ifrane – Cedar Forest – Merzouga – Desert Camp
We will pass by you to your Riad / Hotel at 8:00 a.m. and we will head south across the Middle Atlas until we reach Ifrane. This is a city that will make you feel out of Morocco – it seems more like a place in Europe than in Africa. They will have time to take pictures and explore the city for a while. Once they are ready we will continue to the Cedar Forest where they can interact with the cute monkeys of the place. After saying goodbye to your new friends we will go to Midelt for lunch and rest for a while.
After lunch we will cross the Ziz Valley and its immense palm grove – one if not the largest palm grove in the world. From here you will begin to feel the desert environment as the landscapes begin to change when we enter Errachidia.
We will stop to take some photos before arriving in Merzouga where the camel driver will already be waiting for you. Once they have learned to use the Moroccan turban they will climb on their dromedary and cross the Sahara to watch the sunset on top of a dune. Then they will go to their camp in the middle of the desert.
After dinner you can enjoy an authentic Berber show with drums and nostalgic songs around a campfire. To complete your magical night in the desert, all you have to do is relax and look up – there you will find the most beautiful sky with more stars than you have ever seen.
DAY 2 – Merzouga – Ziz – Midelt – Fez
On your second day we invite you to wake up early and walk to the highest dune around the camp. There you can see how the sun slowly appears between two huge mountains. This is something not to be missed, we promise it will be worth it! After breakfast they will return to Merzouga in dromedary. Once we are back in our 4X4 we will head north across the Tafilalet Palm Grove until we reach the Ziz Valley. We will stop here to take some pictures and to see the town of Aoufous from a privileged place. Then we will go to Midelt for lunch and rest a little before going to the Cedar Forest and visit the monkeys once again.
We will say goodbye once we arrive in Fez and leave them back at your Riad / Hotel.
The Zagora desert in Morocco is small and you will not be able to see high dunes as seen in the photographs. If this is what you are looking for, we recommend you take our 3-day tour to the Merzouga desert.
