Day 1 : Fez – Ifrane – Azrou – Erfoud – Merzouga
After breakfast, we will leave the city of Fez and travel to the dunes of Merzouga. To arrive, we will head towards the Middle Atlas, and visit Ifrane, known as the Switzerland of Africa. The next town where we will pass will be Azrou, “the rock”, where we will stop to observe its forest and see the monkeys in freedom. Following the road through the Tizi Talghemt or Camel Neck, at 1,907 meters of altitude and where the relief is impressive since the mountains are completely bare, and it seems that they are covered with a purple coat. We will arrive at Errachidia and in the crossing we will be able to observe the massif of Tafilalet,
We will continue the path through the palm grove of Erfoud. This will be where we will continue our way along the track until we reach the famous sand dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga. Upon arrival you will have free time to enjoy the calm of the desert and see how the dunes change color. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.
Day 2 : Erg Chebbi – Merzouga
The second day we will dedicate to enjoy the most spectacular part of the Eastern Sahara. We will enter the desert in the 4×4, visit nomadic villages, see oasis and ride through Erg Chebbi. Following the route we will visit the famous village of Khamlia where the gnawa are, descendants of the slaves arrived from Africa, and we will enjoy its amazing folk music. The evening we will return to the hotel to take the camels that will take us to the Berber camp in the middle of the dunes, where we will spend the night. Dinner and overnight at the camp.
Day 3 : Merzouga – Fez
After returning with the camels, we will leave for Rissani – the first imperial city of Morocco, where we can admire its peculiar market, unique in these latitudes, where the nomadic tribes of the desert go to supply themselves. Very curious to see is its burros parking. On the way to Erfoud, we will have a panoramic view of the Ziz Valley with its palm groves and Gorges. And once passing the port of Tizi-n-Talghomt, we will arrive at Midelt where we will have lunch. Then we will go on the road to the cedar forest. We will continue to Fez, cultural capital of Morocco.
