4 Day Desert Tour with Aziz was one of the best experiences of our lives!

We are two young ladies who found Travelling In Morocco after long seeking. Because we only had a few days, Aziz, our guide, devised a path for us. The lodgings and delicious meals, the family with whom we enjoyed the beautiful vacation, and the guide, who was a wonderful guy who was extremely attentive at all times and who also displayed a deep enthusiasm for his country and culture, were all fantastic choices.

What a fantastic 4-day desert adventure with our guide Hassan!

My wife and I traveled for 4 days with our two daughters, aged sixteen and nineteen, and everything went flawlessly; the desert was amazing, and we didn't want to leave. The hostel's new year was great, as was the person who looked after us, and our journey across the desert and visit to the nomads were memorable. Our guide, Hassan, taught us about the finest of Morocco and its surroundings, and our itinerary was created just for us, taking into account our requirements, time limits, and attractions that we wanted to visit. We go on a lot of excursions in the summer and winter, but this is the one that everyone agrees on! It has my unequivocal approval.

Highlights overview:

The 4 days tour from Marrakech to Fes via Merzouga is full of stunning sights to visit. As a result, we’d like to provide you with an outline of what you’ll see and experience during your trip with us.

Ait Benhaddou :

Ait Benhaddou is known as Morocco’s most fascinating Ksar. Another name for it is Glaoua’s Old Palace. The High Atlas mountain surrounds this collection of clay houses with high walls. The Glaoua tribe built their Kasbah during the 18th and 19th centuries, where they used to live. Every tribe has a leader, and theirs was Ben Haddou. He used to stay in his own spacious room at the top of the Kasbahs. According to popular belief, Ben Haddou was a wealthy leader who received support from the French government.

Thousands of visitors go from Marrakech to view the Kasbah each year to see the desert. The beautiful views of the old Kasbah enticed archaeologists to learn more about its history. They further claim that it was constructed in the eleventh century during the reign of Thami El Glaoui, the Sultan of Marrakech.

The Tizi N Tichka p31 road has made the Kasbah more accessible.

On one of our planned trips, you will travel from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou, where your experienced guide will explain the history. You may reach the top by using the steps. The painters’ depictions of the Kasbah utilizing tea and sugar, followed by fire, will surprise you. Climb to the top of the mountain for panoramic views.

Not to mention the fact that Ait Ben Haddou is starting to resemble a movie studio. Scenes from The Gladiator, Alexander, The Bible, and other well-known films and television programs were filmed in the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou.

Ouarzazate.

The painters’ depictions of the Kasbah utilizing tea and sugar, followed by fire, will surprise you. Climb to the top of the mountain for panoramic views.

Not to mention the fact that Ait Ben Haddou is starting to resemble a movie studio. Scenes from The Gladiator, Alexander, The Bible, and other well-known films and television programs were filmed in the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou.

Just across the street from the Atlas Studios is the lovely Cla hotel. Tourists are encouraged to stay and explore the studio’s different areas, which are decorated in a traditional manner.

Another renowned attraction in Ouarzazate is the Kasbah of Taourirt, often known as the Ouarzazate Maze. It also has around 300 chambers. To locate this hidden place, it is strongly recommended that you hire a local guide. It is presently the property of the Thami El Glaoui and is exceedingly well preserved and noteworthy.

Ifrane:

Ifrane is a great place to visit if you want to see both Switzerland and Morocco at the same time. It is Morocco’s cleanest city and the world’s tenth cleanest city with European architecture. As a result, it is known throughout Morocco as “Little Switzerland.” With average winter temperatures of -23°C=-9.4°F, Ifrane is the coldest city in Morocco. That is to say, it snows a lot there, and as a result, a lot of Moroccans go snowboarding there.

The Atlas Lion monument in Ifrane was sculpted by a German prisoner during the French occupation in 1912. One of Morocco’s biggest and most costly institutions, as well as one of the king’s residences, is located in Ifrane.

Azrou:

The forest of Azrou, near Ifrane, is notable for its tall cedar trees, which may reach a height of 25 meters. Mountains in the Himalayan and Mediterranean regions are also home to them. These woodlands are home to Barbary apes, one of the world’s most peculiar species. That is the kind of maggot that has been recognized as an Old World monkey species. Not to add that they are mostly found in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria and Morocco, with a minor proportion in Gibraltar.

We’ve come to feed the monkeys, who normally arrive in groups rather than families. They really despise interacting with other families.

Errachidia:

Errachidia is the first hamlet that functions as the entry to the Sahara desert after crossing the Atlas Mountains. It is located in the Daraa Tafilalet area and was once known as Ksar Souk. Its original name was Imtghern. Following that, Prince Moulay Rachid, King Mohamed V’s brother, gave it the name Errachidia. Errachidia is home to the majority of military installations because to its proximity to Algeria, which has political concerns.

The Hassan Addakhil Dam, which provides water to the adjacent cities of Errachidia, Erfoud, and Merzouga, is located in Errachidia. The Alaouite family had the forethought to construct the dam in the Atlas Highlands in 1968 since everything flows into it when it rains in the highlands.

The Ziz Valley, commonly known as the Ziz river, is a huge river that runs 282 kilometers from Errachidia to Algeria across the Sahara desert. The river’s main noteworthy feature is a 30-kilometer length with several date palm palms. Many individuals in this area have farms, and they mostly produce palm palms since the dry climate and soil are ideal for them. When we arrive at Ait Chaker, we are welcomed with a stunning view of the river, complete with gigantic palm trees.

Erfoud:

Erfoud, sometimes known as Arfoud, is a Moroccan settlement located near the Erg Chebbi sand dunes in southeast Morocco. There are two possible explanations for its name. To begin, many people believe the name derives from the Ounfoud Berber plant that grows in the Ziz River, which flows east of Erfoud. Others claim that the name is derived from the Berber phrase “Ar Afoud,” which means “to the knee,” and refers to a depth survey performed by two Berbers crossing the river.

The three-day international festival commemorating the fruits of the date palm, which takes place in October, is well-known in Erfoud. Many tourists come from all over the world to celebrate and export dates, as well as to enjoy concerts, music, and theatrical performances in the city’s central plaza.

Erfoud is known as the city of mineral fossils in geology. Goniatites, orthoceras, trilobites, crinoids (Scyphocrinites Elegans), and corals, for example, may be found in the adjacent mountains. Of course, we can take you to one of the museums to see how those fossils are made, and we can also take you there if you want to buy one.

Merzouga:

According to TripAdvisor, camel trekking is the best thing to do in the world. Merzouga is therefore the apex of all of our Morocco desert trips, not simply our 4 days tour from Marrakech to Fes.

Merzouga is located around 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Algerian borders. It’s in the Daraa Tadilalet area of Errachidia province. Merzouga is also derived from an Arab clan’s surname “Merzouq.” Some claim Merzouga means “rich” because of the Erg Chebbi sand dunes, which draw a large number of visitors each year.

It’s possible to hear the phrases Hassi Labied, Takojt, or Khamlia, which relate to surrounding communities. Lala Merzouga, Erg Chebbi’s largest sand dune, may also be recognizable to you. Tourism is Merzouga’s main source of income, therefore they work hard to keep it clean and safe.

Merzouga is a town that is home to Berbers, Arabs, and Gnawas, among others. Despite its many tribes and origins, the large hamlet retains a peaceful environment and is well-liked by tourists due to its citizens’ kindness. Take a peek at some of Merzouga’s most popular sights:
