Don’t miss out on one of the most popular itineraries in Morocco for travelers wishing to go to the Morocco Sahara desert! This 3-day Marrakech to Merzouga desert tour offers full insight into the lives of nomads and Berbers, breathtaking scenery across the Atlas Mountains and a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou.

In the Dades Valley, spend a night in a traditional guest house among the Berber villages. What could be more stunning than memories of your group with Berber villages perched on the mountains in the background? And in the narrow, high Toudgha Gorges, you will be able to stretch your legs or hike with a local guide.

There is also a very different and smaller Kasbah in the Skoura oasis, Kasbah Amredhil, to experience. These Kasbahs are some of the main features of a desert trip from Marrakech, unlike anywhere else in the country.

After a welcoming glass of mint tea at the luxury desert camp, you will set out on that long anticipated, sunset camel ride.You can add photos of your group wearing blue turbans with the sunset in the background! Then enjoy an evening of Berber music with the nomads around a campfire. Try your hand at the drum beat, before falling asleep in a comfortable luxury tent near the big dunes.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What do I need to travel to Morocco?

    A visa is not required for a stay of up to 90 days. All passengers traveling to Morocco need to complete a health declaration form at least 72 hours before the flight. It is also advisable to check travel advisories or the nearest embassy and consulate regarding visa requirements before you travel.

  • How expensive is Morocco for travel?

    The currency used in Morocco is the Moroccan dirham (MAD), and one MAD equates to USD 0.10, making it a fairly cheap country to travel in. The average hotel price in Morocco for a couple is MAD428 (USD 42), and daily meals average around MAD132 (USD 13). Local transport costs around MAD70 (USD 6.82), so a trip to Morocco for two people for one week would cost an average of MAD6,272 (USD 614)

  • How many days would I need to travel across Morocco?

    Morocco is a country rich in culture and history, and if you want to see and experience everything this amazing country has to offer, you will need at least three weeks. If you have limited time, a week is plenty of time to travel from Casablanca to Marrakesh and take in some of the country's most iconic highlights.

  • What are some things I need to consider while traveling in Morocco?

    Morocco is a highly conservative country, so it is important to dress appropriately. Cover your upper body and knees at all times. It is also important that you cover your head when visiting mosques. If you go shopping in morocco, do not hesitate to haggle. Haggling is an integral part of Moroccan culture and is expected in most places.
