Ouarzazate – Merzouga. Today we drive through the Anti Atlas ranges to cross The Draa Valley which is famous for its dates and we can stop and try some fresh ones en route. We enjoy a big lunch and in the afternoon we relax and cool down with a swim in Rissani. Then it’s time to head towards the Sahara Desert at Merzouga, where we transfer to our camels for an incredible trek across the vast Erg Chebbi dunes for a night at our remote Berber Camp. An experience that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on travellers young and old! We enjoy a relaxing evening in the desert; we can scale the giant sand dunes and watch an incredible sunset before settling down to enjoy local food and listen to Berber music. Tonight we camp under the glittering Saharan stars.

Todra Gorge

Merzouga - Todra Gorge. Leaving the desert, we continue our journey to Todra Gorge. This 1000ft gorge is hemmed in on all sides by vertical limestone cliffs and is known as Morocco’s Grand Canyon. From its plunging depths to dizzying heights, the charm of Todra lies in its changing colours as the sun slowly moves from east to west. Lunch will be at our Todra hotel and after lunch will be a free afternoon to relax by the pool, go for a swim or a stroll.

We will learn how the Berbers make their carpets, you will have chance to try your bargaining skills if you are interested in buying one. After lunch we will leave the impressive Todra Gorge and make the short journey to Gorge du Dades in the Dades valley. We drive along the Road of 1000 Kasbahs, a green and fertile valley by the Dades River that flows through it giving life to a huge variety of colourful fruit, walnut trees and extraordinary red rock formations. At Dades Gorge there's time to wander and admire the views along the serpentine roads.

Mohammed (tour leader) was charming and a great friend to us and especially great with kids. The vehicle was great. Cannot really fault the trip.

Philip Howling, aged 50

My husband and our two kids aged 8 and 11 went on the 1001 Berber Nights tour in December. I was a little worried about whether my children would enjoy the tour but the guides were excellent and the activities were great fun, they especially enjoyed the camel trekking and so did I! It was a great opportunity for the children to experience another culture whilst getting well looked after by our fantastic guide!

Claire Whiting
