After breakfast, we will take an early departure for Sahara desert, passing by the Middle Atlas Mountain, the most breath taking scenery imaginable in an unforgettable road trip, which will blow you away! Passing through magical cities such as Ifran (1,650m). Ifran, singular “Ifri”, is the Tamazight Berber word for caves, a nice town that was built by the French in 1930. From there we go to Azrou, which in the local Tamazight language means “rock,” a Berber village in the middle of the famous cedar forest - the largest in Morocco. We will have an opportunity to take photos of barbarian apes in the wild. Along the way of the luxuriant Ziz Valley, we will stop for panoramic views. We will continue through the welcoming Berber villages to Erfoud and Rissani. Once in Merzouga, we will have a hot shower or dip in the swimming pool (depending on the weather). A kind camel man will camel trek us through the golden sand dunes to appreciate a magnificent colorful sunset. We will spend the night in a nomadic Berber camp following the rhythms of nomadic drums in the heart of Erg Chebbi dunes under the display of the superb Milky Way with dinner at a campsite under the desert sky.
