Marrakech desert tours
What are Marrakech desert tours?
Marrakech desert tours are tours that start from Marrakech, visit the Moroccan Sahara desert and many other interesting spots along the way, during a period of 2-7 days. First the tours start from Marrakech, by touring the Red City; Marrakech is quite the diverse city, where modernity and tradition are combined to give us the most visited city in Morocco by tourists. After the tour leaves Marrakech it usually visits the High Atlas region, where the highest peak in North Africa is situated. The tour then visit Ait Ben Haddo and Ouarzazate, two very famous filming sites that you can see in movies like The kingdom of Heaven, Gladiator, The mummy…The region is very famous for its Kasbahs and Ksours with their unique style of architecture. Marrakech desert tours also visit some beautiful natural landscapes such as the ones that could be found in Dades valley and Toudra Gorges; the geology of this region of Morocco has made of it a very attractive place that keeps fascinating people who like that sort of stuff. However, the highlight of the tour is the time that’s going to be spent in the desert. It usually starts with riding the camels from the village Merzouga, where the fancy hotels and restaurants are, towards the middle of the dunes of Erg Chebbi, where there’s a camp waiting for the visitors, who usually arrive before the sunset. The night in the camp is an experience, where, the clear night sky, the Berber music, the desert food, the wildlife, the nomadic lifestyle, the comfortable beds and the beautiful desert landscapes are all combined to make it a wholesome and rich time. After the tour leaves Erg Chebbi dunes, it usually visits many other villages and towns in the area of the great Oasis of Tafilalt, most notably: Khamlia, Erfoud, Erissani and Tinjedad. The tours usually return to Marrakech, however, there are many tours that continue towards Fez passing by many significant Berber towns like Midelt, which is known for minerals and apples and Azerou and Ifrane, which are two beautiful towns near the cedar forests where there are monkeys. You can also expect a tour in Meknes, which is definitely a recommended thing; given that Meknes has some really cool historical sites, And also Volubilis the remains of an old Roman city. A guided tour in Fez is also something recommended; Fez has within its confines the dawn of the Islamic era of Morocco that started back 12 centuries ago.

The tours also visit the Atlas Mountains and the forests in the area, along with many valleys, waterfalls, gorges, lakes and coastal cities with warm beaches. However, the most recommended place to visit, according to us is the Great Sahara Desert; the tours that visit Merzouga and Erg Chebbi dunes are something that everyone who visits Morocco must try. When you’re in the Moroccan desert you can ride a camel, which is an experience that not many countries can offer. You can also bury your body underneath the sands for medical purposes as the locals do. Or you can just enjoy the magical desert landscapes of the golden dunes, perhaps even combined with the beautiful colors of the sunset. There are desert camps with traditional tents and also modern, comfortable tents, these camps usually have a band of Berber musicians and a cook who can prepare traditional cuisine. The desert is also a place where many parties and concerts have been organized.
