The south of the Moroccan Atlas & Desert Camel ride 4 days 3 nights Tour From Marrakech :
Day Tour Over view :
To the south of the Moroccan Atlas, the Sahara takes its place in the landscape. Sand and palm trees are becoming more and more present. As in the heart of the desert, the dunes rise to the assault of trays blackened by the sun and verdant wadis sneak between the mountains. Villages of land conceal their palm grove in the hollows of the valleys. It is a magnificent desert where nature blossoms in a fairy tale. Austere and ocher mountains dominate the lush oases. Dark stone plateaus give birth to blond dunes that lose themselves to the south.
