3-Day tour from Fes to Merzouga Desert

Day 1: Fez – Midelt – Erfoud – Merzouga

Our private tour begins with a drive towards the Atlas Mountains stopping to visit the village Ifrane, where we’ll get a chance to explore the famous cedar forest, home to the Berber apes. We’ll then continue through the Tiz Ntalghamt Mountain Pass and the Ziz Gorge (here we can stop for pictures and some local mint tea) to Midelt.

Our drive proceeds across the Ziz Valley, Erfoud, and Rissani; an oasis. Once we arrive at the Erg Chebbi desert dunes, we’ll trade in the 4x4 for camels (optional) and ride towards our desert camp. Upon arrival there we’ll be served a complimentary traditional dinner, and enjoy some music around a campfire under the star and moonlit desert sky.
