Day one: Marrakech - Tisi n'Tichka - Ait Ben Hadou - Ouarzazat - Skoura - Rose Valley Distance: 180 miles  Depart Marrakech and drive through the High Atlas Mountains, via the twisting Tizi n’ Tichka mountain pass to Ouarzazate.

After lunch, drive to Merzouga to trek by camel across the wind-blown Erg Chebbi Dunes, and to experience a classic Saharan desert straight from the picture books. Spend the evening in a bivouac (camp) with a typical Moroccan dinner. Sleep in a traditional nomadic tent in the dunes of Erg Chebbi under the stars.

Lovely tour as the scenery is beautiful. However, too many unnecessary stops for too long.
