We start our tour early today with a visit (from the outside) to the impressive Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca. We then head to Morocco’s nearby capital, Rabat. We’ll enjoy a tour of the old city including visits to the Royal Palace, Ouadaya Garden & Kasbah and the Hassan Tower Mosque. Next is the ancient Roman city of Volubilis.

Day 3 – Fez, city tour

We leave Meknes this morning for the short drive to the mediaeval city of Fez. We have a tour of the city and also spend time confusing our senses in the cacophony of noise surrounding the heady alleyways of the Medieval Medina, home to a labyrinth of souks, mosques, spice filled streets, tanneries, carpet shops and local restaurants before heading to Fez Jdid to explore the cities many varied souks. Overnight Fez

Day 4 – Drive from Fez to Midelt

We start to discover some of Morocco’s beautiful mountainous landscape today as we leave Fez and follow ancient caravan routes up into the hills. Along the way we’ll stop at Ifran, known as the “Switzerland of Morocco” and a huge contrast to some of the other more Arabic feeling cities you’ll see in Morocco. Next we head on through the hills to the town of Midelt where we check into our hotel and in the afternoon enjoy a fun cooking class where we learn how to prepare and cook Morocco’s classic dish of cous cous. Overnight Midelt

We’ll continue through the scenic Ziz Valley this morning as we descend to Erfoud on the edge of the Sahara Desert. We’ll make the short trip to Rissani and the birthplace of the Alaouite Dynasty – Morocco’s current royal family before driving in 4WD vehicles through the desert to Merzouga and the famous Erg Chebbi sand desert. Here we transfer to camels and take a sunset camel ride through the sand dunes to a traditional Berber camp nestled right on the edge of the dunes. You can enjoy a hearty Bedouin meal and a campfire this evening, often with local musicians helping enhance the atmosphere. You spend the night sleeping in comfortable Berber camel-hair tents. Overnight Merzouga.

Berber Tent, Kasbah Leila – Oasis Bivouacs

Day 6 – Ouarzazate via Tinghir & the Todra Gorge

We leave the desert reluctantly this morning and finish our safari before driving to the oasis town of Tinghir. The nearby Todra Gorge is our next stop where we walk through its narrow canyon beneath huge rock walls that change in colour as the light moves during the day. We’ll also drive through the Dades Canyon with its steep winding access road with numerous switchbacks providing great views of the steep cliffs and the river below which rushes dramatically through the gorge. Finally we continue along the ‘Road of a Thousand Kasbahs’ through the scenic Draa Valley to Ouarzazate, or ‘place of no noise’. Overnight Ouarzazate.
