4 Days Sahara Desert Tours from Marrakech Itinerary:

The journey crosses the village of Telouet visiting Ait Ben Haddou kasbah. A famous 17th Century fortress is classified to date by UNESCO to preserve and protect this renowned site. In past years, its fame built on a film making of Lawrence of Arabia and Jesus of Nazareth and, more recently, the sought out location for Gladiator, Kingdom of heaven, and Prince of Persia. Lunch will be served in a restaurant near the kasbah, followed by a sightseeing tour of Kasbah Taourirt. After this, the drive takes you past Skoura city, through the valley of Roses towards Kalaat Megouna, entering Boumalne Dades. Dinner & overnight stay in Boumalne Dades.

Desert Culture + Tea with Nomads + Camel Trek
Watching the sunrise amongst the dunes is a magical experience, and not to be missed. Your breakfast will be waiting for you upon your return, after which you will have the opportunity to visit the nomadic communities around Merzouga, stopping for tea in the souks, and enjoying the traditional Gnawa music. As the mid-day sun wanes, we will mount our camels and trek into the pink sands of the Moroccan Sahara; here, we will have ample free time for you to explore and take in the beauty and vastness of the desert dunes. Once the sun sets, a Moroccan dinner will be served alongside live music around the campfire, after which you are free to explore again - this time in the company of a million stars exploding against the pitch-black sky, and the all-encompassing silence of the Sahara at night. Accommodation: Tiziri camp or similar
