Day 3: Imlil – Dades Valley

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Imlil and head out over the Atlas Mountains, driving over the stunning Tizi-n-Tichka mountain pass.

After lunch you’ll head further into the desert to the gateway town of Merzouga to pick up supplies for your desert trip. You will then drive on to a Kasbah to pick up your camel. At sunset, you’ll trek for an hour-and-a-half by camel to a Berber camp where you will enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner, and sleep under the stars or in tents at a desert camp

Day 5: Merzouga – Marrakech

You will wake up early , just prior to sunrise and take the hour-and-a-half camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further and then head back to Merzouga.

We had a great trip to the Atlas Mountains with our guide Mohamed. It was a fun and really interesting adventure. Everything went well. Special highlights the ride on the Dromedare and the walk through the villages and through the water to close to the waterfall. The lunch on the Terrasse was really tasty. Overall we would recommend it again.

Excellent tour. I would definitely recommend this to others – the guide and driver were brilliant and very knowledgeable. I have to see many places that I would not have seen otherwise. There is a lot of driving but there are many stops and many different things to see. There are some amazing scenery! The places we stopped for food were really good. I particularly enjoyed the places we stayed at night, and the camels were ace. It is worth doing this tour to go to the sand dunes and see a suitable desert. This tour was the highlight of my trip to Morocco 💙
