Travel Package : 3 Day from Fez to the desert
Day 01: Fez – Ifran – Cedar Forest – Ziz Valley – Merzouga:
Travel package from Fez to Sahara Desert provides you with the best opportunity to experience the camel ride with overnight at the desert camp. So, after having breakfast at the hotel/Riad, the driver/guide will take you for a journey of a lifetime experience.
The trip allows us to explore different landscapes travelling via Ifran, where the buildings have sloping roofs, remarkable and unusual in Morocco. This is to cope with yearly snowfall. Our adventure continues with a drive through the UNESCO preserved Cedar Forest of the Middle Atlas. The forest hosts a colony of endangered Barbary apes which you might see and feed. In addition, we drive south of the Middle Atlas passing through Timhadite until we reach Midelt- nicknamed ‘the apple capital’ and serves as the commercial agricultural centre for the surrounding areas. Subsequently, we stop for lunch here in one of the local restaurants.
After lunch, we will continue further south travelling over the Tizi N’ Talghamt pass known as the ‘camel’ pass. Afterwards, we carry on with our trip passing via remote mud villages scattered along the road, then we descend through Ziz Valley, which is particularly known for its palm grove. The fascinating valley of Ziz provides us with a great picturesque view. We will arrive in Erfoud, famous for its date and fossils. Finally, we arrive at the orange Erg Chebbi dunes of Merzouga. Overnight in a typical charming hotel. Travel package
Day 02: Sahara Desert tour & desert camp:
A visit to Morocco without being in the Sahara Desert and a camel ride is definitely incomplete, therefore, this travel package journey will fully be dedicated just to the desert area. To start with, we will have a unique opportunity to visit Gnaoua village “Black people” originally from Mali, Niger…. They will entertain us with their authentic instruments. After our time with Gnaoua; we drive deep in the Desert for a panoramic view that shows the contrast of golden dunes with black volcanic rocks. Later on, a cup of tea with a nomad family is worth it in order to explore the way they survive and feel the harshness of life and what it feels like to be a nomad.
We follow our path to an abandoned coal mine, and then to the village of Merzouga for lunch. Additionally, we make our way to the hotel to collect luggage and get ready for our camel ride adventure. The dromedaries will take us across Erg Chebbi dunes enjoying the sceneries of the area. The sunset view on top of the dunes will be the best experience ever. As you arrive at the camp in the middle of dunes, we receive you with a cup of tea as hospitality. Dinner and breakfast will be served in your luxury camp. The tents are well equipped with all needs.
