Day 1: Errachidia to Merzouga – Entering the Sahara

Begin your journey in Errachidia, a city surrounded by beautiful palm groves and known as a gateway to the Sahara. Travel towards Merzouga, the doorstep to the impressive Erg Chebbi dunes, some of the most spectacular in the Sahara.

Visit the village of Khamlia to enjoy Gnawa music, a unique form of rhythmic music with West African roots. Alternatively, take a 4×4 excursion to explore the desert further, visiting nomadic families or the fossil beds.

In the afternoon, explore the Rissani market, known for its traditional souks and historical significance as a major trading post. Spend another night in the desert camp, taking the opportunity to relax and soak in the serene desert atmosphere.

Day 3: Merzouga to Midelt – Transition from Desert to Mountains
