The Experience

Take a break from city life and get a taste of the moon-like scenery of Morocco.

  • Day 4: Board a 4WD vehicle to cross the Atlas Mountains and reach Ouarzazate; visit Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO-protected kasbah, on the way
  • Day 5: Travel along the road of a thousand Kasbahs towards the Moroccan desert and a traditional Berber camp; optional hike in the Gorge available for a surcharge
  • Day 6: Take in the sunrise views before proceeding to Zagora, visiting local villages en route

The Hotels

Please note that the hotels on this tour are rated at the local Moroccan three-star level, though local ratings may vary slightly from international standards. Upgrades are available to a ‘Standard’ level (4-star Marrakech, better 3-star Ouarzazate, same desert camp and Zagora hotel), a ‘Comfort’ level (better 4-star Marrakech, 4-star Ouarzazate, upgraded desert camp and Zagora hotel) and a ‘Superior’ level (5-star Marrakech, 5-star Ouarzazate, upgraded desert camp and Zagora hotel). This does mean that if some people take up this upgrade, there will be different hotel pick-ups and drop-offs each day, though the Tour Operator does aim to use hotels as close together as possible to minimise any extra travelling time.
