The third day of our 6-day Morocco desert tour, which begins in Casablanca, is the highlight of our Morocco desert excursions. Today will be the longest driving day, although we will make several stops to shorten the journey. First, we’ll stop at Ifrane, Morocco’s “Little Switzerland.” We’ll take a walk to the Atlas Lion Statue from here. After that, we’ll travel to Azrou’s cedar forest. Bring some food for the Barbary Macaque, as this location is well-known for being a haven for them.
We continue our journey, this time via the stunning scenery of the High Atlas Mountains, till we arrive at Zaida. We usually stop here for lunch before continuing on to Midelt, which is not far away. Following that, we will go via the cities of Errachidia and Erfoud, stopping to see the Zizvalley and Errachidia’s dam.
Finally, we will arrive in Merzouga and the Erg Chebbi dunes. We begin with a camel ride across the dunes in a lovely setting with stunning vistas. When you arrive at the camp, check-in, drop your bags, and climb the dunes to watch the sunset (In case if you arrive early). When night falls, you will be served a great supper and invited to listen to some Berber instruments around the campfire beneath the starry sky.
