2 Day Marrakech To Erg Lihoudi Desert Camp Tour

2 Day Marrakech To Erg Lihoudi Desert Camp Tour

Marrakech

This private all-inclusive tour is suited to travellers determined not to leave Morocco without visiting the Sahara or who decide at the last minute to incorporate a stay in the Desert. It offers you a fast-paced two full days of travel traversing the High Atlas Mountains and arguably a road trip of a lifetime while rocking the Kasbahs on route to the Desert.

Description

Our fastpaced ‘Saharan Dune Express’ offers you a packed two full days road trip to the Saharan south and fleeting insights into the traditional rural culture and lifestyles of local communities in the mountains, oases and Desert region. You experience unique landscapes changing almost by the hour which avoids any question of ‘are we there yet?’

That said, we feel a two-day tour travelling such long distances does not ‘do’ the unique sights and experiences on offer justice, you will find it to be a long and tiring journey, however, we feel obliged to offer the tour due to its popularity. We do understand the push of desire to visit the Moroccan Sahara and to experience a camel ride in the Desert and at Desert Camp despite time restraints.

To improve upon the experience in a limited time frame, we have always opted to visit the Erg Lihoudi dune sets just beyond our hometown of Zagora which are the more impressive. The Desert area at Zagora, generally on offer to visitors, is in our opinion not worthy of a visit and overnight stay.

Atmospheric camps, fun and adventure and a journey into dramatic landscapes and lifestyles unlike any other, await you on this considered Saharan tour.
