Land Rover Tour

Round trip in all-terrain vehicles. Here you have the opportunity to see the magnificent landscapes of the desert and the Atlas Mountains.

Reception of the group at the airport of Marrakech by the guide, who will accompany you the next days. Transfer to the hotel.

Visit of Marrakesh, the oasis city located in front of the magnificent backdrop of the High Atlas. You’ll see the Menara Gardens, the Saadian Tombs, the Bahia Palace, Bab Agnaou – the oldest ramparts, the souks and the Djemaa El Fna square, where all day long you can find the hustle and bustle of traders, popular artists, storytellers, jugglers, musicians, cards players and snake charmers.

With the all-terrain vehicles, you go south. Through a landscape of fantastic mountains to the Tizi-n-Tichka pass (2260 m), from where you have a breathtaking view of the massifs and peaks of the High Atlas. Shortly after the pass, you fork and go on the slopes to the Kasbah of Telouet, also called Kasbah Dar Glaoui. It is situated on a promontory, overlooking the valley of Imarene. Drive to the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, who often served as Hollywood’s famous movie set.

Continue on the trail through the Drâa valley in an enchanting landscape of palm trees and oases, from countless villages and Kasbahs, to Zagora. On the outskirts of Zagora, there is an old sign that says “52 days to Timbuktu with a caravan of camels”. You go to your tent camp in the desert at M’Hamid. Enjoy calm and solitude under the starry sky of the desert.

After a delicious Berber breakfast, drive through the Drâa Valley, and again via Nekob and Alnif to Merzouga. This beautiful road through the Hamada, punctuated by oasis gardens, was once a well-known road for camel caravans. Towards Merzouga, even more impressive by the sand dunes, sometimes up to 100 m high. Here you stay in a Kasbah, a hotel right next to the dunes

In this day we drive in the desert. Again and again, the view opens into its hidden oases, ancient villages where one can visit traditional musicians. The Gnaouas with their ancient African music make you feel as if it were in the days of Charles de Foucauld. Visit various old Kasbahs, a former mine of the colonial period and a fossil quarry. Then go on Dayet Sri, a flat lake populated by pink flamingos.

Spend a wonderful day in the desert!

Depart through a desert plateau with small sand dunes and oasis until Tinghir then continue towards the Gorges of Todra. The walls of this almost vertical rocky canyon reach up to 300 m high and not more than 10 m wide at the narrowest point. Continue to Boumalne and the Dades gorges, with its strange rock formations of extraordinary beauty and deeply incised canyons is reminiscent of the panoramic landscape in southwestern America.

Continue west to Ouarzazate crossing several mountain passes, with a breathtaking view of the Anti-Atlas and the plain of Souss. Visit of an Agadir, an ancient Berber granary which is located mainly in the Anti Atlas. Continuation towards Taroudant.

Today you drive on the Tizi-n-Test pass for Marrakesh. This route through the High Atlas completely off the beaten track is partially adventurous but scenically unique.
