Day 1 : Marrakech to Zagora via Ait Benhaddou
8am depart Marrakech across highest Atlas road pass of Tizi-n-Tichka to visit Kasbah of el Glaoui in the Berber village of Telouet and transfer along Ounila Valley to Ait Benhaddou taking the old caravan trade route; stop for lunch and visit the UNESCO site of Ait Benhaddou. Continue along the Draa River Valley to Zagora via the mountains of Ait Saoune. Camel trek (1hr) to the camp for sunset. Camp with dinner and breakfast included.
Day 2 : Zagora to Marrakech Via Ouarzazate
Climb a dune for sunrise and after breakfast camel trek back to Zagora. Transfer back to Marrakech.
Please note that Zagora is a 7hrs drive each way and the dunes do not offer the same desert experience as Erg Chebbi or Erg Chegaga. Zagora is a compromise if you only have two days abut still want to get out of the city to camel trek and sleep under the stars in a desert camp. However, if you have time for a 3day Marrakech Camel Trek Tour we recommend you go the distance to Erg Chebbi or Erg Chegaga.
