Sands of Serenity: Marrakech to Mhamid Desert Expedition | 3 Days/2 Nights

Embark on an enchanting 3-day journey from the vibrant heart of Marrakech to the tranquil expanse of Mhamid Desert. This Mhamid Desert Trip promises a sensory feast as you traverse the Atlas Mountains, explore the UNESCO-listed Aït Benhaddou, venture into the Draa Valley, and finally, reach the majestic Erg Chgaga dunes. In a Toyota 4×4, the magic of Morocco unfolds in a tapestry of roads, dirt tracks, valleys, gorges, and nomadic villages.


Day 1: Marrakech - Atlas Mountain - Ait Ben Haddou - Ouarzazate

As the sun graces the horizon, set forth from your accommodation towards Ouarzazate, ascending the Atlas Mountain via the Tizi NTichka pass (2260m). Marvel at the UNESCO heritage site, Aït Benhaddou, a cinematic marvel showcased in Lawrence of Arabia, Tea in The Sahara, Game of Thrones, and Gladiator.

Day 2: Ouarzazate - Agdez - Draa Valley - Zagora - Mhamid - Erg Chgaga

Awaken to a new day, embarking on a scenic route to Zagora, passing through the picturesque Agdez village and the palm-laden Draa Valley. Lunch amidst the enchanting Amzerou village paves the way for a thrilling off-road expedition from Mhamid to Erg Chgaga dunes, reminiscent of the Paris Dakar rally. Experience a camel ride to savor the sunset over the magical Erg Chgaga. Surrender to the tranquility of the desert night, nestled under nomadic tent camps.
