Daily Itinerary

Day 1 – Casablanca – Cèdre Gouraud Forest – Ziz Valley – Erg Chebbi Dunes

This is the day that your Morocco desert tour starts. From the city of Casablanca, you will have an early morning departure towards the Sahara Desert. You have to take into consideration that this is going to be a long day, but really worth in terms of landscape variety. You will have the privilege to travel from the Atlantic Coast, all the way to Erg Chebbi dunes, near the border with Algeria. Undoubtedly this trip is one of our best Casablanca tours.

Driving in Morocco’s network of Motorways until near Meknes, we turn south in direction of Azrou, as we enter the Atlas Mountains. This will be the first real stop of the day and you’re going to be amazed. At Cèdre Gouraud Forest, you will have the chance of interacting with wild monkeys. The Barbary macaque is an endemic species to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The lovely cedar forest will with primates is remarkably photogenic.

Cèdre Gouraud is literally a 40-meter high cedar tree located in the forest on the outskirts of Azrou. The Gouraud cedar is estimated to be 800 years old and owes its name to the French General Henri Joseph Eugène Gouraud.

Crossing the Mid Atlas until Midelt, the Moroccan capital of apples, we now start to climb higher altitudes until we reach the Rich city. From now on, the journey is going down altitude wise, as we finally arrive in the fabulous Ziz Valley.

You now notice how the landscape changes abruptly as we enter the Draa Tafilalet region, from a green and forest scenario, to dry mountains. Yes, the Sahara Desert is close. Draa-Tafilalet region‘s principal watersheds are that of the Draa River and the Ziz River, which waters the Tafilalt oasis down south near the dunes you’re heading.

You will have a couple of photo stops in Ziz valley and Al-Hassan Addakhil dam. Our last section of the journey is almost done as we cross Errachidia all the way to Erfoud, the last city before the dunes.

Erg Chebbi Dunes are the tallest dunes in Morocco, and its highest dune reaches above 250 meters.

As soon as we arrive at Erg Chebbi Dunes, you will be taken to your hotel room where you can rest before going to have dinner. If we get to the dunes on time, you will have the opportunity of enjoying your first Sahara Desert sunset. But as you know, the sunset calendar changes throughout the year, as in wintertime sunsets much earlier that throughout spring and summertime. During the evening you will enjoy live music from the local staff and have lots of fun.
