Our 4-day desert tour from Agadir to Erg Chegaga begins at 8:00 a.m. We’ll take in the sights of the landscapes and Berber villages between Taroudant and Ouarzazate on our way to Aït Benhaddou.
This “fortified city” is situated along the former trading caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech, on a hill along the Ouarzazate River. It’s home to some beautiful examples of kasbahs, some of which are still inhabited. The UNESCO World Heritage site has been the setting for many films, including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. We’ll spend the night in Ouarzazate with dinner and breakfast included.
After breakfast, we will set out on our 4-day desert tour from Agadir to Erg Chegaga through M’hamid. We’ll pass through Agdez, the Draa Valley, and its palm groves and kasbahs, skirting an oasis of over 200 km. On the way, we’ll visit the Kasbah of Tamnougalt, cross the Draa palm grove on track, and then follow the main road until Zagora.
At Zagora, we’ll visit the Kasbah of Amzrou and the Village of Tamgroute best know for its cooperative of green potteries and its ancient library with books from the 11th century. Road to M’hamid, where we take a camel ride into camp to enjoy a fabulous sunset in this unique desert landscape. Dinner and overnight in Berber nomad tents under an array of stars, unlike anything you’ve seen before!
After a delicious breakfast at the camp, there is the opportunity to walk in the sand dunes. Shortly after, your Agadir to Erg Chagaga desert tour continues to Morocco’s largest Sahara Desert sand dunes. We drive for 65 km off-road across sand dunes, oases, and hamada to arrive at Erg Chagaga Dunes.
Here, you can take a second camel ride for an hour to an hour and a half. Enjoy the spectacle of the color-changing sunset from the top of the dunes. Here, enjoy moments of pure peacefulness in a magical setting where the dunes stretch as far as you can see.
At night, taste dinner under the Sahara starlit sky. Share an evening of music and drumming with the nomads and other guests. Stay in your comfortable nomad tent in a desert camp near the giant dunes.
Rise early to watch a beautiful sunrise from the top of the dunes. After breakfast, we’ll take a 90 km off-road drive. First, you’ll stop at Lake Iriqui, where you can look for fossils. Then we’ll arrive at Foum Zguid, where we’ll have lunch.
From there, we’ll continue north past arid hills and date palm tree oases to Taznakht, a small Berber village known for its rugs and carpets production. We’ll then head to Agadir, passing through Taliouine, a small town well-known for its saffron gardens. Shortly after, we’ll arrive in Taroudant to visit its red ramparts and local souks.
Finally, we’ll arrive in Agadir in the afternoon. Your amazing 4-day desert tour from Agadir to Erg Chegaga will come to an end with a drop off in Agadir or Taghazout resort.
