3 Days Sahara Desert Tour from Fes to Fes
Day 1: Fes – Toudra Gorges
Leaving Fez in the morning, passing through Ifrane to arrive to the cedar forests of Azrou where the wild monkeys are located. It will be good opportunity to take photos of wilderness in Morocco. Lunch in a small Berber village of Zaida. We continue the way through the Atlas Mountains enjoying the landscapes of Medilt to arrive to the small town of Rich.

After breakfast, we say good bye to Toudra gorges on the way to the Sahara desert of Merzouga/Erg Chebbi. Berber villages are scattered along the way. We’ll pass through Tinjdad, Jorf and Erfoud in which we’ll feel the beginning of the Saharan oasis of Tafilalet. Lunch in Rissani, and then continue to Merzouga, where we’ll find our camels waiting for us for the camel trekking in the dunes of erg Chebbi, which are considered as the highest ones in North Africa. It is a great experience to imagine yourself riding a camel in erg chebbi where the silence of the desert is the dominant. Dinner is served under a Berber tent if it is cold and in an open air if it is hot. Your camel man will do his best to make you enjoy your camel trekking with a fire and Berber drums.
