Moroccan Desert 3-Day Tour from Marrakech
Crossing the High Atlas to the Sahara from Marrakech requires detailed planning to experience the region’s full beauty and history. This convenient tour wraps them up in three days, with a guide to make everything extra engaging. Negotiate Tizi-n-Tichka pass to Ait Benhaddou and the movie town of Ouarzazate, plus ride camels and bivouac overnight in the Sahara’s Erg Chebbi dunes. Includes transport, accommodation, and convenient Marrakech pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Day 1: Marrakech to Dades Valley (D)
After pickup in Marrakech, venture through the High Atlas, navigating Berber villages and the Tizi-n-Tichka pass to visit Ait Benhaddou kasbah. Following lunch (own expense), continue to Ouarzazate where you can explore Atlas Studios, Africa’s biggest movie studio, and Taourirt kasbah, a former Glaoui Dynasty stronghold. Then, travel via the Rose Valley, Skoura Oasis, and Amerhidil kasbah to the Dades Valley.

Overnight: Dades Kasbah hotel

Day 2: Dades to Erg Chebbi (B, D)
After breakfast, walk through the Dades Gorges before returning to the Todra Gorges via Boumalne du Dades. On route, take photos of Tinghir’s palm groves before a stroll beside the River Todra and a mint tea. Then, pass the Anti Atlas and Tafilalet to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi’s dunes edging the Sahara, where you’ll ride a camel and overnight in a bivouac camp, with dinner and drum music under the stars.

Overnight: Tented camp

Day 3: Erg Chebbi to Marrakech (B)
Wake early for the sunrise and a mint tea before a camel ride to a kasbah hotel for breakfast and a shower. Then, return through the Atlas to Marrakech, where your adventure ends at the original departure point.
