Our most popular trip: 4-day return trip from Marrakech
One of our most popular trips is the 4-day return trip from Marrakech. Whilst in the ideal world it would be wonderful to spend 3 nights in the desert, the 4-day trip allows you to enjoy the varied scenery and sights to the desert over two days. You will therefore spend one night at a guesthouse en route to the desert, two nights at the desert camp and return to Marrakech in one day.
Our trips are always private. The transport is a 4x4 Land Cruiser with aircon and an English-speaking driver. Whilst the drivers are knowledgeable and know the best places to stop, the itinerary and timings are flexible.
The summary of the 4-day trip is as follows:
The trip to the desert is over two days, with one night being spent at a guesthouse en route to the desert, two nights at the desert camp and return to Marrakech in one day.
The summary of the tour is as follows:
Overnight at a guesthouse en route to the desert. This is either a 4-hour drive to Ait Ben Haddou and overnighting at Kasbah Ellouze or Riad Caravane, or a 5 hour 30 minute drive to the guesthouse of Kasbah Azul in the Draa Valley. The route is via the High Atlas Mountains and Tizi n’Tichka pass (alt. 2300 m),the Ounila Valley, full of ancient villages and kasbahs (including Telouet) and Ait Ben Haddou.
From Ait Ben Haddou, it's a 6-hour drive through the Draa Valley (home to 3 million date palms and hundreds of kasbahs), Zagora, Tamegroute (famous for its green-glazed pottery and ancient Koranic library) and M'Hamid (where the paved road ends and the Sahara begins).
All day at Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp. There are plenty of activities for those that either want to remain at the camp or venture into the desert.
Return to Marrakech. The return trip is 8 hours, and is more direct and more remote than the route to the desert. The return trip is via Foum Zguid (a 3-hour drive though the desert), Taznakht (known for its rugs) and then back over the Tizi n’Tichka pass.
The cost of the 3-night/4-day trip is 1650 euro for two people (or 825 euro per person) if staying at Kasbah Azul, 1610 euro at Riad Caravane and 1595 euro at Kasbah Ellouze. This includes:
2 nights at Erg Chigaga Luxury Desert Camp. All meals, drinks and guided trips on camels are included. Other activities, including sandboarding, sundowners on the dunes and informal singing and drumming around the fire are also included.
1 night at either Kasbah Azul, Kasbah Ellouze or Riad Caravane. Breakfast and dinner are included. Drinks are extra.
Private transport in a 4WD Land Cruiser with an English-speaking driver.
The pricing is based on two people sharing.
