Description

This is a Desert Inclusive Tour and can be customised should you wish to extend your stay. 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 or onward journey to Casablanca or Fes.

Our ‘Kasbah Toubkal & Sahara’ offers you a road trip both on and ‘off the beaten’ track comprising remote mountain ranges and an iconic well-travelled route into the Sahara.  It is for those who enjoy being active, appreciate unique places to relax in and value their comforts at the end of each rural, rustic and activity filled day.

You explore the High Atlas Mountains by foot and by mule, gaining a glimpse into rural Berber Mountain life in an area of natural outstanding beauty within Toubkal National Park, before traversing by 4x4 the High Atlas & Anti Atlas Mountains ranges further south.

Your journey showcases some of the best landscapes, sites and experiences southern Morocco has to offer in a relatively short period of time. In contrast to the Imperial city of Marrakech, it presents a mesmerizing alternative perspective of Morocco and its diverse culture.
