Enjoy the magic of the Moroccan Sahara Desert on this 3-4 day Desert voyage. You can expect to experience camel trekking, a 4×4 tour on the massive sand dunes and sleeping in a bivouac, a desert tent.
On this trip you will pass through all of the major sites on the route to the dunes. You will begin in Marrakech, the entrance to the south of Morocco, then pass through Ouarzazate, Kelaat M’gouna, the Dades Gorges, and finally Merzouga.
Booking your Sublime Sahara Desert trip with us ensures you experience the full Home James Morocco treatment, including:

- In-car WiFi and GPS

On your adventure you will journey through the wondrous High Atlas Mountains, where lush greenery and palm trees become covered with snow in the winter. You will also visit the Hollywood of Morocco: the desert city of Ouarzazate. The Ouarzazate Films studios have been used for many famous movies such as Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia.
Afterwards, you will continue on to the town of Kelaat M’gouna and the infamous Valley of the Roses. Kelaat M’gouna is home to the country’s largest rose water and rose oil manufacturers. If you are booking your trip in the spring, keep in mind that Kelaat M’gouna holds a Festival of Roses to celebrate the rose petal harvest in May each year. If you’re looking at earlier travel dates, then driving through the valley you will see and smell what seem like infinite rows of Damask roses that bloom every April.
Following Kelaat M’gouna, your experience will take on an adrenaline rush when you reach the Dades Gorges. The Dades Gorges lie between the High Atlas Mountains and Jbel Saghro of the Anti-Atlas Mountains. These gorges have fantastic views of the traditional Berber Kasbahs built along the side of the mountains along with the palmary and river below.
The road to the Dades Gorges in itself is an attraction to many explorers as it is full of sharp, thrilling mountain loops and hairpin turns. Making a stop on the road is an absolute must to capture the breath taking scenery of the green fertile valley and red hues of the mountain landscape.
Finally, you will reach the desert village of Merzouga and see the mesmerizing and massive sand dunes of Erg Chebbi. As the legend states, when a wealthy family refused hospitality to a poor woman and her son, God was offended, and buried them under the hills of sands of Erg Chebbi. Here you can drive through the dunes (only possible with a 4×4), or put on a traditional Nomadic scarf and either take on the dunes by foot or be guided by a Nomad on camelback.
