Our first stop is the High Atlas mountain range, and more specifically Tzi Tichka (2260m). We will take the highest asphalt road in Northern Africa to get there, a road that used to be only for suitable for mules until the French reconstructed it. During our ride, we will be able to see the ancient towns hiding in the valleys and a great variety of scenery. While heading to Ait Ben Haddou, we will cross the southern side of Atlas where you will find completely different, strikingly green, view. In Ait Ben Haddou we will visit the famous Kasbah which is declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. On the way to the desert we will also pass by Ait Saoun, Agdez and the Valley of Draâ.
Once we reach Zagora, we will ride some friendly camels to get us to the camp Haimas which is surrounded by dunes. Before having dinner, we can climb up the dunes and feel the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere of the desert. Then, we will sleep under thousands of stars in the middle of the desert.
Did you know that…
-The word Marrakesh actually means “the land of God” in Bereber. This city is between the desert and the summit of High Atlas
-The legendary land of the 1000 moroccan kasbahs can be seen from the south of High Atlas. The kasbahs, or fortresses, are built for defensive purposes
After enjoying the grandeur of the desert under millions of stars, we will start heading back early in the morning to see the sun rise whilst riding our friend the camel. After having breakfast, we will pass through the silent city of Ouarzazate. This city is famous for its Kasbah Teloulet and movie studios. This city is now the administrative center of Morocco and is also the starting point for the 52-day camel ride to Timbuktu. You will also find the Valley of Draâ here, whose main produce is dates. From here we will continue our trip towards Marrakesh.
On the last day, depending on the time of your flight, you may have a few hours to visit Marrakesh and its medina, market, or the Palace of Bahia. If you have time you should definitely visit the Menara and the Garden of Marjorelle! We would recommend you arrive at the airport extra early because you might need to have your flight ticket and passport stamped before boarding.
Did you know that…
– Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou are also known as “the door of the desert” due to their picturesque character. Many well-known movies such as Gladiator, The Jewel of the Nile, and Sahara were shot here
