Continue east to Ouarzazate, a desert center and movie destination. Join a movie studio tour to learn which of your favorite films were shot in the adjacent desert regions. Travel in the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs towards Boumalne Dades, passing through several small communities where traditional farming practices are still practiced. Keep an eye out for nomads caring for their livestock as you go through the fragrant Kelâat M’Gouna, or “Valley of the Roses.” You’ll finally arrive in Boumalne Dades, a significant town on the Dades River’s southern bank.

  • DAY 2 : DADES VALLEY – TODRA EGORGE – SAHARA DESERT

    Sahara Today, you’ll travel further east to your final destination: the Erg Chebbi Sand Sea outside of Merzouga. Stop in Tinghir along the way to view the river oasis that spreads on both sides of the town. The surrounding desert scenery has spectacular buttes, mesas, and plateaus. Nearby, you may visit the Todra Gorge, a 300-meter-deep valley created by the Todra River. Continue to Erfoud, a desert village.  You’ll notice the beginnings of the huge dunes of Erg Chebbi towering on the horizon. When you arrive at Merzouga, change gears and transfer to your personal camel to begin your journey across the sand dunes to your Bedouin-style tent. Hike to the top of a local dune to watch the beautiful sun set, then relax by the fire with a warm supper and traditional music.
