Day 4

AGDZ IN THE DRAA VALLEY

The day starts with wonderful views of the High Atlas. After going over the Tiz n’Tichka pass, you proceed through the Ounila Valley with its ancient kasbahs, Berber villages and palm laden oasis. There are endless photo opportunities and you may stop wherever you are inspired. The Glaoui (who was known as Lord of the Atlas) inspired Kasbah of Telouet features some magnificent tile and zeillij work. The adjacent café serves the most marvellous fig tajine. After Telouet and more stunning scenery you reach Ait Ben Haddou, which is one of the best-preserved examples of Moroccan earthen clay architecture. Situated on the original caravan route between Marrakech and the Sahara, the Kasbah still houses several families and has been utilised regularly for a procession of epic movies. After yet more stunning scenery you will reach Agdz, where your accommodation is located in the oasis (from where you can take some gorgeous walks in the tranquil oasis).

Day 5

ERG CHIGAGA LUXURY DESERT CAMP

Depart Agdz after breakfast through the Draa Valley (home to 3 million date palms and hundreds of kasbahs), Zagora, Tamegroute (famous for its green-glazed pottery and ancient Koranic library) and M’Hamid (where the paved road ends and the Sahara begins). The best kasbahs to view en route are Tamnagoulte (just outside Agdz), Oulad Othmane, (which has excellent views of the Draa Valley) and Ouled Driss (before you enter the desert at M´hamid). Families live in all these kasbahs, which helps provides an aura of authenticity to the experience.

You will reach the camp well before sunset, in good time to enjoy evening sundowners on the dunes adjacent to the camp, followed by dinner and drumming around the camp fire. Most evenings are clear – the vast and clear sky being laden with billions of stars. 

Transfer, dinner and overnight at your camp.

Day 6

ERG CHIGAGA LUXURY DESERT CAMP

Freestyle day after breakfast with camel treks, sand-boarding, guided walks, lunch at the private Oasis, quad biking, sundowners on the dunes and informal singing and drumming around fire.

Transfer, dinner and overnight at your camp.

Day 7

TAROUDANT

Depart the camp after breakfast.  Taroudant is regarded by many as the ¨grandmother of Marrakech¨ due to its ramparts. The city walls, constructed in the 16th century, are almost completely intact and provide an inspiring arrival experience with its impressive bastions and engraved city gates. It’s an authentically Moroccan town with two souks, which function almost entirely for the local population. It’s definitely worth a visit in the early evening.

Transfer, dinner and overnight at your hotel.

Day 8

ESSAOUIRA

After breakfast, checkout from your hotel in Taroudant to the wonderful city of Essaouira and experience the delights of the Medina, visiting the fishing port, or enjoying the beach hiking, surfing, horse riding, a camel trek or quad biking. Enjoy dinner at one of the seafront restaurants.

Transfer, overnight at your hotel.
