Marrakech – Telouate – Ben Ait Haddou – Ouarzazate (4 days including trip)
Arrive to Marrakech by flight to save time (or stop one day in Casablanca and visit the Old Kasbah, have lunch or dinner there).
In Marrakech spend 4 days enjoying the most culturally and historically rich city. There are plenty of monuments and guides to visit around.
Our driver can probably take you around at that time and stay at our place there. (not the exact picture but the house is very similar, there are many pools, golfs and playground for the kids)
One day road trip to Ouarzazate crossing Telouate and Ben Ait Haddou. We will probably need to arrange a driver for you there. This is a trip through the High Atlas Moutains (2260m) with a visit to the Kasbah of the Pacha Glaoui (former ruler of that region at the colonization time), you will eat there for lunch. Then you will follow the path taken by the old caravans to Kasbah (fortress in Moroccan) Ait Ben Haddou.near small rural communities.
The view is beautiful and you will arrive to the door of the desert by night where you will stay at Ouarzazate.
3) Ouarzazate to the desert: (1 day)
One day at Ouarzazate toward the desert where you will visit in the morning the Cinema Studios where they made movies like Gladiator and so on. Ouarzazate is known for having incredible natural light making all pictures look amazing.
In the afternoon you will take a 4x4 wheels going toward the desert. You will stop by Erfoud crossing Palm trees oasis in Tinjdad and Touroug. In Erfoud you can visit small factories where they work on marble. You can have lunch on the way.
You are almost there… the desert! Huge dunes on sight at Merzouga (Erg Chebi), there you leave the car and you ride camels! On their back you watch a breathtaking sunset and you will camp in the heart of the desert under traditional tents and grilled meat (you can try camel meat haha but I don’t like it so much, people say it tastes like Bacon)
You can try other sand activities there as well!
Open your eyes and look at this flawless stars filled sky. I am sure even your babies will remember it!
