The first day

09:00AM

Pick up from your hotel in Marrakech, at your preferred time. We recommend pick up no later than 9AM, because there is a long day ahead!

11:30AM

You've driven east, up into the Atlas Mountains, and now you have reached the famous Tizi n'Tichka pass. It's a famous, winding road with breathtaking views. It's the highest mountain pass in North Africa, at 2,260m elevation.

13:00PM

Welcome to Ait Benhaddou, a fortified walled-city and the shooting location for many famous TV shows and movies, including Game of Thrones. This is our first stop of the day. Take your time!

15:00PM

Just 30 minutes after departing from Ait Benhaddou, we will arrive at Ouarzazate - the last main town we will visit before heading deeper into the desert. Nicknamed "The Door of the Desert", this is the real Morocco.

16:00PM

From here we head North-East, and the landscape becomes noticeably more desert-like. We'll drive along Ourazazate's salt lake plain, continuing deeper into the Moroccan Sahara.

18:00PM

You have arrived at the famous Dad├ęs Gorges, a dramatic, red landscape. You will feel like you are in another world. You will stay here tonight, either in your own accommodation or if you prefer, in accommodation organised by us.

Overnight in Dades

If you would like to organise your hotel through us, you can select from our accommodation options during the booking process. If you want to organise your own accommodation, that's fine too!

The second day

10:30AM

Pick up from your hotel in Dades, at your preferred time. Like the previous day, we recommend pick up no later than 9AM, because there are many things to see today!

12:30PM

You've continued driving east, and have reached the famous Todra Gorges. This cannot be missed. Walking through the canyon with the cliffs towering above you, you will feel very small! If you are hungry, we can have lunch here.

14:30PM

We will now leave the Todra Gorges, and continue east towards Merzouga. It is a stunning drive to Merzouga, and it is definitely worth taking some photos.

17:30PM

We have reached the famous Merzouga Dunes in time for the beautiful sunset! This is a sight not to be missed. We will stay here tonight.

Overnight in Merzouga

If you would like to organise your hotel through us, you can select from our accommodation options during the booking process. If you want to organise your own accommodation, that's fine too!

The third day

09:00AM

After watching a beautiful sunrise in Merzouga, your driver will pick up from your hotel at your preferred time after breakfast, to begin the journey back to Marrakech.

13:30PM

You are welcome to stop for lunch when / where you like. It is a private tour, so the itinerary is flexible. Instead of making all the stops on the first two days, you can make some stops on this day too, so you have more time in each place.

18:30PM

Welcome back to Marrakech! Unfortunately the tour must end here, so the driver will drop you off at your hotel, and say goodbye.
