Itinerary

Once you have eaten breakfast, the driver will come to collect you where you will make your way to the dusty small town of Agdz, located in the Drâa Tafilalet region of the Atlas Mountains. The caravans of centuries ago, made their way through this area, laden with commercial goods. Today, you will visit the “Palmeraie”, an oasis of Palms and a network of streams, creating a mini paradise. The notable “Glaoui Kasbah”, is one of the hundreds of mud-brick Kasbahs en-route.
Erg Chigaga is a place with a stretch of sand measuring 56 km. It has been coined a “sand sea”, for as far as the eye can see, there is sand. Southwest of M’Hamid (a small oasis town, with a cowboy western feeling), the desert experience is quintessential. You will be driven through this space with a 4×4 and enjoy pristine, unobstructed views of dunes measuring up to 300 meters (980 feet), and at night, clear sights of the spectacular Milky Way.
We will set out after breakfast for the next adventure to Aït-Benhaddou. You will cross the Draa Valley, and pass by the town of Tamegroute, a small village historically known for its “Sufism”. Defined as “Islamic Mysticism”, and the root of the “inward” discovery of Islam for Muslims. Well known for its pottery in the past, Saturday’s market place is where you can find the green glazed pots.
