Full description
Experience the beauty of the Sahara Desert on a private overnight tour from Ouarzazate.  Day 1: Ouarzazate – Todra Gorges – Merzouga  After an early-morning pickup from your accommodations in Ouarzazate, start your drive along the Kasbah road to the Rose Valley and ultimately to the Todra Gorges, impressive stone walls formed by the River Todra over thousands of years. Take some stunning photos and go for a walk in the Gorges.  After lunch, it’s time to head to the desert. Upon arrival in Merzouga, you’ll have time to get settled in your lodgings before meeting your camel and camel driver. From on top of your new friend, head to the Sahara Desert camp where you can climb the high dunes and enjoy the incredible sight of the sun sinking below the horizon.  Head back to your tent and drink some mint tea before a traditional dinner. Spend the night watching for shooting stars or dancing around the campfire to the beat of the desert drums.  Day 2: Merzouga – Draa Valley – Ouarzazate  On the second day, wake up early to enjoy the first rays of sunlight over the desert. Have breakfast at the camp before hopping on a camel or a 4x4 for the ride back to Ouarzazate. On the way, you’ll stop at different sites to take pictures of the beautiful desert landscapes and the Draa Valley’s date palms. Pass over the vast Anti-Atlas Mountains before arriving back in Ouarzazate.
