Safari in Sahara desert from Marrakech
3 days / 2 nights

If you are in Marrakech and you would like to go on a safari in the Sahara desert of Morocco and you only have 3 days, we suggest this small getaway to the Zagora and Erg Chigaga desert. This tour of Zagora includes a dromedary ride, a stay in an authentic Berber tent under the stars, as well as a guided visit to the famous Kasbah Ait Benhaddou.

Day 1 • Marrakech – Kasbah Ait Benhaddou – Zagora – Mhamid

We will depart from the hotel with our 4X4 SUV which we will use to cross the High Atlas mountains through the Tizi N´tichka pass, enjoying amazing views and its unique landscapes. We will stop to visit the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou (a World Heritage Site), one of the most picturesque and unique places to visit in all of Morocco. Then we will continue our tour to Zagora through the Draa Valley, where we will refresh ourselves with a good cup of mint tea. We will arrive at the door of the Sahara “Mhamid”, that is where we will spend the first night in a Hotel-Kasbah. This journey is 450 km (279 miles).

Day 2 • Mhamid – Sacred Oasis – Erg Chigaga Desert

On our second day, we will enjoy breakfast and go out to the desert dunes with dromedaries. After lunch we will take our 4×4 vehicle and head towards the largest dunes in the “Erg Chigaga” region. There we will spend the night in a camp in an authentic Berber tent (jaima) under the starry night sky in the middle of the desert.

Day 3 • Erg Chigaga – Taznakht – Marrakech desert

Before breakfast we will first enjoy a fantastic show of  sunrise in the desert dunes of Morocoo. Afterwards we will head towards the Berber village of Taznakht. On our way back to Marrakech we will pass the old Dakar Rally road, and the crossing of Lake Iriqui. We will arrive in Marrakech in the afternoon.



Tradition & Comfort

At Best Morocco Tour we believe that the experiences we offer should be real and authentic. In order to achieve that, we prefer to always include in every one of our trips and tours, authentic traditional architecture accommodations. These reflect the culture of the country and its true essence with maximum comfort and convenience. We believe that an experience is only truly appreciated, when you are submerged fully into it.


In Morocco there is a category of accommodation referred to as a “riad”. It is a traditional accommodation and with a lot of charm and personality. Some riads are true architectural treasures and look like palaces from a child’s story book. The word riad in Arabic means “Eden”. A riad is typically a spacious house whose rooms are distributed around an interior patio, enhanced by a fountain surrounded by a geometric garden, where ornamental and aromatic plants, orange trees and on some occasions even palm trees grow.

Most of the riads are old residences and palaces turned into charming hotels located in the old urban core of the cities.

There Are Riads Of All Categories:

Standard: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 2*/3* accommodation.

Superior standard: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 4* accommodation.

Luxury: This is equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as a 5* accommodation.

Premium: Is the equivalent to what according to the international scale is classified as high standing accommodation. In Morocco many premium riads are referred to as “Villas.” They are large residential-tourist complexes or resorts, usually far from the center and the hustle and bustle of the cities.

Authentic Experience

Jaimas In The Desert

During our excursions to the Sahara desert we offer the possibility of sleeping in authentic Berber camps. These are typically nestled in the middle of the dunes and under the blanket of the clear night sky filled with stars. “Jaimas” are a kind of tent used by nomadic people in their desert settlements. It is a good option to experience the desert in its purest form, it’s vastness and freedom.

Elegance, maximum comfort and convenience

In Best Morocco Tour

During our tours in the desert of Morocco we use two types of tents. Depending on the circumstances you can opt for the Berber tents; typically made from dromedary wool, cane/ wood or the costumary tents made of canvas with traditional decorative print. All tents are fully equipped to guarantee maximum comfort and convenience. However, the traveler must be conscious that this is a natural environment and the comforts of a tent in the middle of the desert cannot be compared to those of a city hotel.

This experience includes a dromedary ride to enjoy the impressive spectacle of the sunrise in the Moroccan desert as well as sunset in the dunes, full breakfast, dinner and a demonstration of traditional desert music, such as the Berber drums.
