Embark on an unforgettable 3-day desert adventure from Marrakech to Merzouga.

Along the way, we'll visit the historic Ait Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its well-preserved kasbah. Continuing through the picturesque Tizi n'Tichka Pass, we'll arrive at the captivating Dades Gorges by evening, where a traditional guesthouse awaits us for dinner and overnight stay.

On day two, our expedition takes us through the breathtaking Todra Gorges en route to Merzouga. We'll pause for lunch in Erfoud, known for its fossil workshops and succulent dates. Upon reaching Merzouga, the gateway to the Sahara, we'll embark on a mesmerizing camel trek into the desert, led by the hues of the setting sun.

Are your Desert Tours appropriate for kids?

Yes, all of our Morocco tours are appropriate for children. We love having kids on our tours, and we find that they truly enjoy the experience. We have booster and child seats available. Children of any age can participate in our tours.

Can children ride a camel?

Yes, children can go camel trekking in the Sahara too! Children from about 10 years old upwards may feel confident enough to ride a camel alone, and this is fine. However, younger children or older children who would like to may also ride a camel with a parent for support. Most companies will allow an adult and a child to ride a camel together.

Can I skip the camel ride?

Yes, depending on your tour, you can either walk or ask your guide to help arrange an alternative ride to the next stop. The camel rides usually last around 1-1.5 hours.

Can you ride a one hump camel?

Yes, it is possible to ride a camel with only one hump. The dromedary (one-humped) camel allows a rider to sit in front of, on top of, or behind the hump; the Bactrian (two-humped) camel is saddled between humps.
