4 Day Marrakech, Dades Valley & Erg Chebbi Desert Tour

4 Day Marrakech, Dades Valley & Erg Chebbi Desert Tour

Marrakech

This private tour is suited to travellers who wish to experience more than the three day ‘Flying Carpet’ tour offers, preferring instead a more insightful tour of the Sahara region with a two-night stay in the Sahara comprising Desert hotel & Desert camp. It offers you camel trekking and a full day of Desert experiences or relaxation in the most accessible of the larger dune sets.

Description

This is a Desert Inclusive Tour and can be customised should you wish to extend your tour. It is ideally suited if you wish to combine your own planned visit to Morocco with an organised Desert Tour departing from and returning to your accommodation Marrakech. Please note the Chebbi Dunes and Desert Camps can become very busy during peak Spring, Autumn and Winter holiday periods.

Our ‘Desert Nomads’ offers you a road trip travelling many Moroccan kilometres into the Sahara while favouring a two night stay in the Desert, providing you with a little more time for to appreciate and experience more fully the uniqueness of a pre-Sahara and Saharan Desertscape, which for many is a once in a lifetime visit and experience.

You can engage with Saharan life and enjoy either a more adventurous time should you wish to ‘take off’ on quad around the dune area, in addition to camel treks in and out of camp. Alternatively, spend some time simply in a location with unique and ‘pinch yourself, am I really here’ views.

The exit route from the Sahara spread over two days rather than one day offers you a more relaxed and insightful return journey to Marrakech full of experiences travelling through the rock formations the Dades Valley, the Palm Oases and sand-castle like Kasbahs and local Berber archaeology unique to the region.

Atmospheric Oasis and Desert accommodations, time to appreciate the uniqueness of an absorbing Saharan road trip, adventure and experiences at every turn, await you on this combined fast-paced yet more relaxed and considered a tour.
