“3 Days Desert Tour” and a “4 Days Desert Tour" Route


【Detailed explanation of the itinerary】

Depart from Marrakech, head towards the desert (1 night or 2 nights),
and end the tour at Fez. A total distance of 1030 km.

【Haven’t seen sight of any sand on the first night of the tour】

We will be staying in a gorge on the first day of the desert tour, and will only be able to take sight of the sand dunes at 5pm on the second day. That is, for the 3-day desert tour, there will only be one night about 15 hours where we will be on the sand, arranged to stay in a luxury tent. If the weather is good, you will be able to observe the sunset, the starry sky, and the sunrise.

【Disadvantage of the 3-Day itinerary】

  • The tour will only dwell in the desert for 15 hours. There will only be one chance to watch the sunset, the night sky, and the sunrise. Therefore if the weather is bad, you will miss out on them totally.
  • Of the 15 hours, there will be at least 6 hours of sleep, 3-4 hours of daylight time, and the rest is night time. As a result, the actual available time for taking pictures will be very limited, and will be rushed.

【Advantage of the 4-Day itinerary】

  • In the 4-Day Desert Tour, we will stay in the desert for a full extra 24 hours. Ample time to enjoy the Sahara Desert.
  • If the weather goes bad on the first day, there will still be another day to watch the sunset, the starry sky, and the sunrise.
  • In the 4-Day Desert Tour, we will stay 2 nights in the desert, a night at the desert entrance hotel, and a night at luxury tents.
  • There will be an extra 24 hours more time to experience the culture and life of the Berbers of the desert, to take a 4WD jeep adventure soaring through the sand, and have free time to take photos to your heart’s content.

【Summer Vacation Schedule】

Due to the extremely hot weather during June to August, around 40-50°C, only the 3-Day Desert Tour will be available during this period.
