Morning departure from Marrakech to Zagora and the dunes of Nakhla across the High Atlas mountains and over the famous Tizi-n-Tichka pass (2260m). From these mountains, the views over the valleys and the Berber villages perched on the mountain sides, sometimes barely distinguishable from the mountains themselves, are spectacular. Just after Ouarzazate, you continue to descend until you finally reach the Draa valley where you stop for lunch at Agdez. Afterwards, we go along the ancient road of caravans between the mountains and the river. You then reach Zagora and the door of the sahara, where you will have a camel ride to watch the sunset and have dinner in the Nakhla dunes at the bivouac of nomad tents where you spend the night.
If you get up early enough to see the sunrise, you will be rewarded by the wonderful play of shadows across the sand. After breakfast, the return from the dunes of Nakhla to Zagora is on camel back. Afterwards, we drive north to the kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou where lunch will be served. In the afternoon, a visit to the Kasbah is scheduled, before driving back to Marrakech which we reach by the end of the afternoon.
