Sahara Trekking

11 Days from Marrakech, dunes of Erg Chegaga

With our trekkings you leave your everyday life behind you. You dive into the fascination and beauty of the desert. You get to know the life of the Berbers and Nomads. Our guides cook for you traditional food and you sleep in small tents or under the thousands of stars. Our group size is always small.

Day 1 Arrival

We pick you up from Marrakech airport and take you to a beautiful riad for overnight stay.

Day 2 Drive to Mhamid

In the morning we start from your riad and head towards the High Atlas Mountains. We cross the Tizin Tichka Pass with approx. 2.260 m. On the way we take some breaks to take pictures and to enjoy the landscape of the Atlas region.

We visit the famous and well-preserved Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Kasbah from the 17th century is the backdrop of numerous Hollywood films.

After the Kasbah visit, we reach Ouarzazate where there are some active film studios. Afterwards we continue to the green Draa river valley, which is lined with thousands of palm trees. We go to Mhamid and from there directly to the desert for our first night in the Sahara. B/-/D
