Marrakech to Ouarzazate travel Our journey starts at 7:30 am, with a scenic drive through the winding road of the High Atlas Mountains.

Marvel at the beautiful landscapes dotted with Berber villages before we stop for our first break, some 80 Km from Marrakech, where you can stretch your legs and enjoy the refreshing cool breeze of the mountains with a cup of coffee. 

The next quick stop will be in Tizi-N-Tichka pass, the highest spot of our trip at an altitude of 2269m, to enjoy the panoramic view and take some good pictures. 

Marrakech tours to Ouarzazate in addition:

Along the way, we will visit Telouet kasbah, a hidden castle that was once the route of merchant caravans as they passed from the desert down to marrakech tours, and belonged to one of the Lords of The Atlas, a famous figure and man of state during the French protectorate era: El Glaoui. 

Afterwards, we carry on to the famous ancient village of  Ait Benhaddou, a renowned castle located in the foothills on the southern slopes of the High Atlas.

The kasbah has been ranked by UNESCO as a  World Heritage site, and is famed for its incredible traditional South-Moroccan architecture.

As well as making appearance in some of the gratestest movies and Tv shows . Such as such as The Mummy, Gladiator and Game Of Thrones (S3)… 

From there we take a final short drive to Ouarzazate , also known as Hollywood of Africa, and visit one of its amazing studios of cinema, and its famous Kasbah Taourirt, before we check in our hotel for the first night .


Today we’ll take a quite long drive towards the sahara desert morocco. We first cross Sekoura and get to Kalaat M’Gouna (The Valley of Roses) before we stop in Dades Gorges. Here we’ll have the chance to meet the Nomads who wonder in these lands, and get a closer look on their lifestyle. 

After a cup of tea with with the nomads, we will go for a small adventure to the Monkey Fingers rocks, and hike through the amazing canyons crafted by the power of time and nature.

 We will continue through Tinghir and then Arfoud, before we finally arrive to the sahara desert morocco.

Upon arrival to Merzouga, we will meet our camel caravan, and ride through the amazing sand dunes of ‘Erg Chebbi’ with the beautiful sunset on the horizon.

Get ready for an unforgettable night , with a dinner served next to the campfire, and a Live Local Music Show, under the starry sky of the Sahara. 

DAY 3 : MERZOUGA – Marrakech to Ouarzazate

Wake up early to catch the sunrise, and ride your camel back to the hotel for breakfast. We hit the road the way back to marrakech tours, a long day for sure, that’s why we’ll have several stops to make it the lightest possible !!

We will stop by in Todgha for a nice walk in the shades of the oases  and the Gorges (No free soloing !!). Take your time for taking pictures of the cliffs before we go for a yummy lunch at a local restaurant.

Then, we continue back to Ouarzazate to visit the Kasbah Taourirt and the Museum of Cinema, before we end the journey where it started, at your hotel in marrakech tours to Ouarzazate around, late in the day (around 8 pm)

Please note : 

  • This trip is very cadenced and fast paced, with long rides and too much driving, for the sahara desert morocco is about 564 Km away from Marrakech. We highly recommend our 4 days tour instead of 3 days for those who have more time to spare. 
  • The arrival time to Marrakech to Ouarzazate depends not only on the long distance, but also on the traffic in the road especially the High Atlas part of it, sometimes there’s work & Constructions going on and that might hold us a little bit off the schedule. Also during Winter time, the Snow  can cause some Delay, or even Cancelation of the trip. 
  • The Nomads aren’t always available. So we might skip this part of the tour when they’re not there
