Morning departure to Merzouga dunes. After Tinghir, you will visit the groves and then foray into the Todra Gorge. The limestone cliffs seem like an opening carved through the Todra Assif, which has spectacular peaks diving to the bed of the river. The peaks rise up to 300 meters above the Todra which meanders from its source in the High Atlas mountains. Walk freely through the gorges and palm groves. After lunch, continue to the palm groves of Tinjedad, Touroug and Erfoud. The tour will then continue to Merzouga where you will enjoy a camel ride through the fascinating dunes of Erg Chebbi, from which you can observe the sunset. Sand dunes are moving sculptures in the form of draperies whose colors vary according to the intensity of the light. They stand as living walls next to the desert with the highest reaching up to 150 meters.The night is spent in nomadic tents Distance: 250 kilometers (154 miles)
After breakfast, depart towards the Draa Valley through Rissani and Nqob. We will cross the most mysterious desert landscapes, dotted with oases, before continuing to Ouarzazate along the Draa valley. The incredible scenery is bordered with palm groves and extends over a length of 200km with fortified Ksour. The river continues in a thin stream of water and provides a strange green color in the middle pre-Sahara. After lunch you will return to Marrakech. Distance: 550 kilometers (340 miles)
