DAY 1: Fes – Merzouga
Today is a busy day. It is a long drive from Fes to Merzouga, but we’ll make several short 20-minute or so stops along the way. The first stop will be at Ifrane, also known as “the Switzerland of Morocco.” It is a very small town but so unique for its architecture and cold climate. The next stop is at Azrou’s cedar forest, famous for the presence of Barbary apes. If we’re lucky, the apes will be around, and you’ll have the chance to feed them by hand. We’ll also stop at Midelt and Errachidia. And we’ll pass by the gorgeous Ziz Valley on our way to see fossils in Erfoud. Our last stop will be at Rissani to do some shopping at the souk.
We’ll briefly stop at Sahara Desert Hotel for a cup of tea. Then we’ll cross the desert dunes of Erg Chebbi by camel to go to our camp. We will have a beautiful evening watching the desert sunset and enjoy Berber dinner and music by the campfire at our luxury camps.
DAY 2: Merzouga – Fes
We’ll wake up early to enjoy the sunrise and return by camels to the village to meet your private driver. While en route to Fes, we’ll stop at Rissani, Erfoud to visit the exhibits of marble and fossil, and the Ziz Valley full of palm trees. We’ll probably have lunch in Midelt, and then we’ll stop in Ifrane, a charming ski resort, before reaching Fes where we will stay overnight.
