The private tour from Fes to Marrakech through the Erg Chebbi desert is an excellent way to discover the southern Morocco. It will allow you to cross the south of the kingdom of Morocco, the Middle and High Atlas, to see the cedar forests and the magot monkeys (Barbary macaque), to discover the gorges and the Ziz valley. With a local guide, you will take a camel ride in the dunes of Erg Chebbi to admire the sunset. You will have dinner under the stars to the rhythm of the drums and spend a night under nomadic or luxury tents.
Then you will discover the Todra Gorges, the Valley of the Roses, and after the visit of the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, you will cross the High Atlas Mountains before arriving in Marrakech.
After breakfast, our first stop is Ifrane and with its alpine chalets, trimmed gardens, leafy park surrounding a mountain fed lake, you could almost be in … Switzerland. Pretty walks are to be had in these forests where the cheeky Barbary macaque roam, to the delight of the visitors- keep your snacks close… The surrounding countryside is pigmented by apricots, walnuts and pictures of rural Berber life as we approach Midelt. Then, cross the Ziz gorges where the first palm groves come into sight. A few hours later we arrive in Erfoud and you can already scent the desert… In Rissani, visit the Jewish district. Arrive in Merzouga later in the afternoon. Dinner and accommodation in a riad facing the dunes .
Spend the day exploring the area. Pry out fossils, have tea with the nomads and try the local ‘pizza’, join in for a dance with the Gnawa, visit the old mines, scout for rock engravings or pre – Islamic tombs, among others. You can also try quad biking or sand surfing. Late afternoon, trade the 4X4 for camels and get taken to your desert camp, to arrive there in time for sunset. Dinner and accommodation in luxury tents with an ensuite shower and toilets .
Have breakfast at the camp to then jump in the 4×4 and continue your Fes to Marrakech journey. Further on, in Tinjdad, visit a traditional fortified ksour village and its wells of light. Todra Gorges, lies only 15 km from Tinerhir, presenting an arresting spectacle with its crystal clear river emerging from it, its huge walls changing colour to magical effect as the day unfolds. Later, reach the Valley of Roses, Dades gorges and then the palm grove of Skoura. Dinner and accommodation in a lodge at the hearth of the palm grove.
Leave Skoura to then cross through Ouarzazate and arrive at UNESCO world site Ait Benhaddou. Follow the dramatic Ounila Valley with its derelict kasbahs to then reach the salt mines and the ruins of the pasha’s palace at Telouet. Take on the High Atlas mountains and cross the Tizi n Tichka pass at 2165 meters. Descend upon Marrakech in the evening. End of your Fes to Marrakech private tour.
