Early August, we thought it was going to be unbearably hot and well, it was hot but it was super fun! Those guys are the best! Really, lots of laughs, we learned a lot about their culture and customs, different from the rest of Morocco.

We were on a tight schedule and only spent three days, and coming from Marrakech (which is a long trip) we could only do the typical tour is everywhere. BUT! we were left with the immense desire to visit a nomadic family still in the desert and some other village.

Lhoussine, very kind, invited us to meet her family, her house and her daily life.
Spending the night in the desert was GREAT, and the sky was spectacular. A lot of calm after great moments.

THANK YOU BECAUSE YOU MADE IT UNFORGETTABLE. I WILL RECOMMEND YOU FOR PRICE-SUPER QUALITY.

Highlights overview

Ait Ben Haddou

Your first attracion to visit from Marrakech is Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. It’s one of the worlds heritage of unesco where berber touaregs used to trade and stay when coming from Tomboctou.

Ourzazate

Ouarzazate is a city in Morocco located in the southern part of Morocco. Its name comes from a Berber phrase meaning “without noise” or “without confusion”, a city with a vibrant culture and artistic tradition.

Ouarzazate is a good tourist city in Morocco, which is ideal for tourism, with a large number of hotels. The population is about 38 thousand people. It is often a favorite stop for tourists on their way to the Sahara Desert. Most of them stop here to stock up on provisions for their onward journey to the Great Deserts.

Ouarzazate sights

Ouarzazate differs from most Moroccan cities by all standards. Its main attraction is the long and wide avenue Mohammed V, which begins from the beginning of the city and continues along the modern buildings, Kasbah Tifultutte.

Ouarzazate is well established with numerous high-level hotels, but relatively few restaurants and gardens. Another reason for its popularity is the huge Atlas film studios, which are located 6 km from Ouarzazate. It is a huge studio, covering about 30,000 m, you can often see the shooting of some film. Films such as:

  • Lawrence of Arabia.
  • Star Wars
  • Gladiator

Be sure to visit the Finnite Oasis south of Ouarzazate, home to the beautiful Piss Ksour. It is also home to the Kasbah of Taurirt, which was built in the 18th century and renovated in 1994.

The famous El Mansour Eddahbi reservoir, built in 1972, which provides constant irrigation of palm groves and agricultural land. It is the main source for the production of electricity.

Ouarzazate has a typical Moroccan market, but products are slightly more expensive than in other cities in Morocco. It is worth a visit at least once in this interesting city.

 

Merzouga(Erg Chebbi)

One of Africa’s top natural attractions, the Sahara is in front of you, not just in a geography textbook. Now you can see the white sun of the desert and the dunes of all shades of yellow, going beyond the horizon. Of course, the scope is impressive: the dunes seem endless.

You can not travel on your own in the Sahara, only with a tour. This is done primarily for the safety of tourists. In the tour you will try the traditional cuisine of the inhabitants of the desert, you will hear the real songs and music of the Berbers, get acquainted with their life and culture. The balloon flight or the ride on the giant dunes on quad bikes, skis or snowboarding will be an unforgettable experience! You can also stay the night in a special tent in the desert, admiring the light of the distant stars.
