Fes To Merzouga
DAY 1: FES – IFRAN – MIDELT – ZIZ VALLEY – ERFOUD – MERZOUGA (ERG CHEBBI) :
After breakfast. we will start “4 days Fes Desert tour to Marrakech via Merzouga” towards Ifrane,. through hills covered in forests of cork oak and giant cedar,. home of a few Barbary apes. Crossing beautiful and tranquil passes over both the Middle. and High Atlas ranges we will catch a first glimpse of the south’s. incredible architecture. Lunch in Midelt,. approached through a bleak plain of scrub and desert. The dramatic peaks of the High Atlas,. rising behind the town, provide a spectacular background. Crossing Tizi-n-Talremt (Pass of the She-Camel),. we will descend into a desert plain along the Ziz valley. We will then head south to Erfoud and Rissani,. a huge oasis containing over six million palm trees,. edged by many ksours (fortified villages). Continuing along a striking route that marks the transition to desert,. when we reach Merzouga we will be greeted with a glass of tea. Time to relax in the hotel.
DAY 2: MERZOUGA – TOUR AROUND ERG CHEBBI DESERT AND NOMADS :
After the breakfast and take shower in Hotel,. we go in a tour around the erg chebbi,. we will visit a house and listen to some gnawa music (originally from Ghana,. and Sudan). We will visit some deserted mines,. Berber nomads and oasis of palm trees. Towards lunchtime, .we go back to Merzouga then we get ready to ride. camels into the pink sands of Morocco’s highest dunes. We will have time to wander the dunes before sunset. Dinner is served,. followed by traditional music and the night in a nomad tent.
DAY 3 : MERZOUGA – TODRA GORGES – DADES VALLEY AND GORGE :
If we wake up early enough, we can watch the spectacle of sunrise, when the colour of the dunes combine with the play of shadows to make an awesome sight. After breakfast we ride the camels for a couple of hours (or less; it is up to you) before leaving for Tinghir and Todra Gorges for lunch. The road passes through Tinejdad and the Todra Valley. This stunning area affords plenty of opportunities to walk,. such as along the river through the gardens or up the road on the other side of the gorge. Later, we will continue to the Dades Valley and the Dades Gorges before spending the night in a hotel.
