This private tour is suited to travellers who wish to visit Marrakech Morocco’s southern Imperial City and who are drawn to the more ‘off beaten track’ element to travel, embarking on an authentic road trip to the less commercialised rural south. It offers you from Zagora and signposts Timbuktu, an off piste adventure into the more remote and towering dune sets of Erg Chigaga
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.
Our ‘Signpost Timbuktu’ offers you a road trip travelling many Moroccan kilometres into the Sahara inclusive of a 6okm Desert piste drive into camp and 90km Desert piste drive out of camp, in the opposite direction to following camel caravan trading routes and in part the old Paris Dakar rally route over remote dunes, stony Desert piste and the vast but now dry Lake Iriki.
The journey traversing the High Atlas Mountains & Tichka Pass is a memorable adventure drive while the entire journey through the Draa Valley is a worthy ‘destination’ with unique red earthed crumbling Kasbahs, rural and remote Berber villages and date Palm Oases stretching out to the horizon.
The town of Zagora is also is our home base out with Marrakech and therefore you are always guaranteed a hospitable welcome and personalised insight into everyday life as lived by our family and friends in the south.
Your return journey is full of experiences and some unique to ‘hidden’ village oases in a time forgotten environment meeting with villagers whose way of life has remained relatively unchanged for generations.
Atmospheric rural & Desert accommodations, a road trip packed with unique regional experiences into our home region and a less commercialised perspective of a more remote Desert region await you on this considered tour.
