5 Days Desert Tour From Fes to Marrakech


Day 1: Fes – Ifrane – Azrou – Midelt – Errachidia – Ziz Valley – Erfoud – Merzouga

As you go from Fez to the Cedar Forest, a forested region between Azrou and Ifrane, you will first pass through the city of Ifrane. You can see the majestic trees in Cedar Woodland being scaled by Berber monkeys and see the many bird species that call the forest home. After lunch, we will continue the journey and travel through Erfoud and Errachidia, two locations famed for producing dates, before arriving at Ziz Valley. The palm palms in Ziz Valley are well-known. You will stay at a hotel where you will have dinner after reaching your destination in Merzouga.

In Merzouga, after finishing breakfast, we will ride a four-wheeler to some nearby locations to visit.

You’re going to see the magnificent oasis Tissardmine before we return to the hotel. Then, as the sun sets over the sand dunes, you’ll go to your tent in the center of the Sahara. You will eat supper and spend the night in a Berber tent.

We’ll pass through Tinijdad’s palm orchards on the way to Todgha Gorges.
