Detailed Tour Departure From Marrakech Itinerary:
We at Sahara Light – Travel company in Morocco, organise private tour departure from Marrakech to explore best of Sahara desert with local guides and drivers. We will pick you up at the airport of Marrakech and transfer you to your comfortable riad in the Medina, the old town of Marrakech. Here you can easily reach the heart of the city, the Djama el Fna on foot and enjoy a first impression.
After breakfast we drive with the SUV in the direction of the Atlas Mountains. We explore the winding route to the pass Tizi’n Tichka (2260m) on the south side of the Atlas Mountains down to Ouarzazate, the gateway to the south of Morocco and the Draa Valley. There you will see barren rocky landscapes and lush green vegetation. Kasbahs (traditional feudal settlements), palm groves, henna fields and herds of goats line the path. In Zagora you stay in a beautiful hotel in the palm grove.
After breakfast we head south. First we visit the Tamegroute and then to M’Hamid. There the paved road ends and the slopes to the Sahara begin. Here you spend your first night in the desert in a comfortable bivouac, a permanent camp in the first dunes.
To take advantage of the morning chill, we set off after breakfast with the caravan. The path leads past some small oases. In a shady place a lunch break is made with snacks and fortifying tea. Then we continue to the dunes of Sidi Naji, where you will find our camp. At the campfire you can round off the day and look forward to the first night under the starry sky of the Sahara. Enjoy your 11 day Big tour with authentic desert trek, Atlas mountains & sea.
After breakfast we continue towards Erg Ezahar. During the day you will cross a rocky plain (Hamada) and then come to the big sand dunes. At the foot of the dunes the second camp is opened.
The next stage is in the usual rhythm. Lunch break in the shade of a tamarisk, dromedaries and the silence and vastness of the Sahara. Later in the afternoon you will reach the dunes of Bougarn. The third night in the desert.
Before you reach these great and expansive dunes, you will cross Qued Laatache. Then you will reach the Oasis sacrée, the sacred oasis where you will have lunch on the edge. In the afternoon you will finally arrive at your Bivouac at the foot of the great dunes of Chigaga. Before dark, you can climb these mighty dunes to enjoy a wonderful sunset.
After breakfast our 11 day Big tour with authentic desert trek, Atlas mountains & sea continues and we say goodbye to the dromedaries, camel leaders and the Sahara.
