Following a delectable lunch break in Ouarzazate, we continue southward. Crossing the Tizi-n-Tinfifte pass to reach the captivating town of Agdez. Descending from the pass, you’ll be greeted by a breathtaking sight of a vast oasis adorned with countless palm trees, signaling the beginning of the awe-inspiring Dra’a Valley. Known for its abundant production of 25 varieties of high-quality dates, September marks the start of the harvest season, making it the perfect time to savor the freshest dates in Agdez. Our journey continues through the enchanting Draa Valley, enveloped by palm trees and Ksours, until we reach our final stop for the day, Zagora.

Our second day commences with a delicious breakfast, preparing us for the adventures ahead. We set off towards Tamgroute, where we’ll explore the Zaouia, an ancient Koranic library, as well as witness the craftsmanship of pottery makers and visit an undergrounded Kasbah.
Continuing our journey, we arrive at M’hamid, the gateway to the desert and the end of the paved road. As noon approaches, we’ll enjoy a barbecue meal in a serene oasis. Our path then leads us to the majestic Erg Chegaga dunes, rising 300 meters high. A 60-kilometer off-road drive takes us through diverse desert landscapes, including “erg” (dunes), “hammada” (stony desert), and oases.
These remote dunes are situated far from civilization, offering a profound sense of silence and an expansive sea of sand that is truly awe-inspiring. At Erg Chigaga, you’ll have the opportunity to embark on a memorable one-hour camel ride across the sand dunes. As the day draws to a close, we’ll indulge in a delectable dinner and retire for the night at the Sahra Relax Chigaga Camp. Immerse yourself in the tranquility and beauty of the desert as you rest in a private tent adorned with comfortable beds, exquisite Moroccan furniture, and candlelight to enhance the ambiance.
