at a Bedouin camp in the Erg Chebbi dunes. Ride a camel to watch the sunset and sunrise. See the Kasbah

of Ouarzazate, and much more.



Discover the edge of the Sahara Desert on a 3-day budget tour from Marrakech, and explore the dramatic landscapes of the Dades Valley and Kasbah of Ourzazate. Ride across the dunes of Erg Chebbi by camel,

and sleep at a desert camp surrounded by high sand dunes.

Day 1 : Marrakech - Boumalne Dades
Following an early pick-up from your hotel or riad in Marrakech, journey across the High Atlas Mountains

to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. See the fortified Kasbah, used as a location set

for some famous Hollywood epics, such as “Lawrence of Arabia.” Enjoy some time in the Kasbah, before driving

to Ouarzazate, known as the “Gate of the Sahara.” Following lunch at leisure, continue to the Boumalne Dades

via the Valley of the Roses. Upon arrival at Boumalne Dades, take the back roads through the Dades Canyons, passing stunning rock formations and fortified Kasbahs along the Dades River. Continue to your hotel

for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2 : Boumalne Dades - Erg Chebbi
Following breakfast at your hotel, drive the “Road of 1001 Kasbahs” to the small oasis town of Tinghir.

Continue through the dramatic Todgha Gorges, pausing for some free time to explore the canyons and enjoy lunch at a local café. Continue to Merzouga to meet your camel caravan. Then, experience the Erg Chebbi dunes

on camelback, and watch the sunset change the color of the sand. Reach your desert camp before nightfall,

and enjoy an authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars. Local nomads will provide the entertainment

and show you how to play the tam tam drums.

Day 3 : Erg Chebbi - Marrakech
Wake early to watch the sunrise before breakfast (optional). Then, ride your camel back to the main road.

Your driver will be waiting to pick you up for the transfer back to Marrakech. Stop half-way for lunch in Ouarzazate.

You can also book upgrades for one or both nights as an "extra".
For the first night: Air conditioned superior room upgrade in Boumalne Dades hotel.
For the second night: Upgrade to the Deluxe desert camp with a luxury private tent with ensuite shower,

bathroom facilities and 5* amenities. The upgrades need to be booked per person.
