Given that, the Kasbah is a fortified village that dates back to the 18th century. Also, it was a main stop for the trading caravans coming from the Sub-Saharan countries going to Marrakech.

With this in mind, we can hike the Kasbah to the top and get the chance to explore it from inside. the buildings are a vivid example of unique Moroccan architecture. Provided that, several film directors have chosen the Kasbah as a productions design. For instance, Gladiator 1 & 2, Game of Thrones, The Mummy and Outer Banks.

Following lunch, we cross Ouarzazate city ,Hollywood of Africa, and drive through the palm grove of Skoura. Eventually, we drive by the Valley of Roses to arrive to today’s destination which is Dades Valley.

After breakfast at Boumalne, we will head over to a special destination today, the magnificent Merzouga. Passing by Tinghir, to visit Todra gorges the highest narrowest spectacular gorges in Morocco. A unique place. Recognized around the world as, one of the most spectacular canyons in the world. 

After a nice walk through the gorge,we continue to Tinejdad town. It is where we can have lunch and restore before we get back to the road to the Sahara Desert.

Upon arrival, you ride the camels through the dunes. A bottle of water and backpack are the things you can take with you during the hour of the camel riding. The rest of the luggage you will find it in the camp because there is a luggage car that takes care of the luggage.

Stop for sunset over a high dune and continue your journey to the camp. Once you arrive, the hosts will serve you mint tea and welcome you with open arms. They will serve you dinner followed by Berber drums music. 

After a long busy day, get some rest and enjoy a peacefull sleep in your well-equipped tent under the shining stars of the Sahara Desert. 

The third day of your 4 days desert tour from Marrakech to Fes is an explorative day of the Sahara Desert. 

Embark on a 4WD vehicle and start bashing the dunes to the end of the dunes where the flat rough desert starts. It is where some nomad families still live in their traditional Berber tents. You will learn more about how they survive in that harsh environment. They would also be happy to serve you a cup of tea as a way of hospitality.

Through the black rocky desert, you will continue your way to M’Fis. It is mainly an abandoned French village where lots of locals are still working on Kohl mining. The location also provides a panoramic view over the camps dotted through the Erg-Chebbi sand dunes. You can also clearly see the transition from the sand dunes to the flat desert landscapes.

Back to the car, you resume the adventure by a scenic drive through the desert valley. Back to the main way, tou will stop at Khmalia Village for a special lunch which is Berber Pizza. But before that, you should learn about what makes the village special. It is the type of music they play which the inhabitants inherited from their ancestors. It is Gnaoua music.

It is the only place in the desert where locals are still using old systems of irrigation to plant their vegetables and fruits. Enjoy a fresh breeze inside the gardens and learn about the interesting irrigation system known as the canals.
