Day 1: Marrakech - Draa valley - Zagora
This memorable trip starts with the scenic drive from Marrakech over the Tizi-N-Tichka pass (2’260 m), where you can spot the traditional Berber villages with its inhabitants working and chatting at the roadside.

After breakfast, we’ll have enough time to visit Zagora and its surroundings like the Jewish quarter in Amzerou and have a look at the huge palm groves. Afterwards, we’ll continue our trip towards the desert to Mhamid. Along the way, we stop at a Saadian town of the 16th century which is called «Tamgroute». There, we are able to visit an old coran library and a subterranean Kasbah. Mhamid is the end of the Draa valley as well as the end of civilization. We’ll have our Pic Nic-lunch in the desert and continue direction Erg Chegaga, where we’ll arrive before sunset. Hop on a camel and walk at the desert pace along the dunes with its diverse colors. We’ll arrive at the desert camp where you’ll pass the night in a nomad tent or under the shining stars in the middle of impressive sand dunes. A traditional dinner is served and you can spend the night watching for shooting stars or dance around the camp fire to the beat of the desert drums.
