Morocco is the land of the desert and the mountains. Travel to Morocco can be a life long experience. In this article we will talk about trekking in the desert, first about how to get to the best location for hiking. You may fly from your country to Marrakech and start to plan the next day to the south of the country where it is best to walk in the desert. Remember, a great plan can make big difference, “hike your plan”. It is also where the desert dunes starts. A walk in the Sahara desert can be a great experience for the serious walker or for the whole family. You will meet beautiful rocky hills and sand dunes landscapes that you just can not experience by passing through by car.
The place we have chosen for hiking is the surroundings of Tazzarine. Here you walk with a professional team who has a lot of experience and who are familiar with the area. Let’s start our plan.
First of all, make sure that you have good walking shoes, sun cream and sun glasses because it can be hot weather. We pick you up at your accommodation in Marrakech around 8:30 and we depart towards Ouarzazate where we will visit the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. On the way we stop to take pictures of beautiful views over the mountains and we do a short walk in the valley of the Draa.
Once we arrive at Tamsahelte we will overnight in a typical Kasbah, where our camel trek begins the next day. After shower in the Kasbah we make again a short walk in the Berber village of Tamsahelte.
The next day starts our trek to Ait Ouazik, we will walk for about 3 hours until our pause takes place and where our cook prepares lunch. After lunch we continue our walk to Ait Ouazik where we will visit the eolithic rock carvings. We make our camp in oasis close the village.
After breakfast we will follow again our walk route to Ifart. Here we walk in a peaceful plateau full of tamaris trees. After Amrad village we stop for lunch and we take a half hour break before we go the dunes of Foum Tizza. In Foum Tizza we will spend the night at our camp in the middle of the dunes under thousand of stars. The next day our driver picks us up and we go back to Kashba Riad du Sud. After shower, we drive to Merzouga, on the road we visit the Mausoleum of Moulay Ali Cherif in Rissani. Once we arrive at our hotel, we take a half hour camel trek to the bivouac where we will spend the night in a Berber tent. Get up early to enjoy the sunrise from the top of the dunes. After breakfast we return to the hotel for shower and we drive towards Erfoud.
