Embark on a journey of discovery with us, starting with a pick-up from your accommodation in Marrakech. As we venture into the magnificent High Atlas Mountains, we will visit the renowned Kasbah of Ait-Benhaddou, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. This historic fortress, renowned for its stunning architecture, has served as the backdrop for numerous Hollywood productions such as "Game of Thrones," "Gladiator," and "Lawrence of Arabia." It also played a crucial role as a stronghold on the ancient trade routes from sub-Saharan countries to Marrakech.

From here, we will make our way to the city of Ouarzazate, where you will have the opportunity to visit the Touarirt Kasbah and cinema studios if you so choose. Our journey will continue through the "Road of a Thousand Kasbahs" and the Skoura Oases to reach the beautiful Dades Valley. Along the way, we will admire the stunning scenery and pass through the charming city of roses and Berber villages.

As the day comes to an end, we will arrive at the Merzouga Desert, where you will have a quick stop at the hotel at the sand dunes to switch to a camel for the rest of the journey.
