Although most of our travelers opt for a full tour of Morocco including the Sahara Desert (and if that is what interests you click here for our Magic Morocco Tour!), sometimes there is only time in the itinerary for a trip to the desert and back. So we have developed an exciting new tour option – our Deluxe Desert Tour. See the itinerary below!
Day 1 Marrakech/Boumalne Dades D
Today you will be greeted by your private transport driver to depart on your Deluxe Desert Tour from your Marrakech hotel. You will have the privilege of crossing over the beautiful High Atlas Mountains, along the road of 1,000 kasbahs en route to Boumalne Dades. Retire for the evening at your beautiful kasbah and enjoy the Saharan side of Morocco!
Dinner: At Kasbah
Day 2 Sahara Desert B, D
After a delectable, traditional Moroccan breakfast you head through the picturesque Todra River Valley which makes for a beautiful journey towards the magnificent, colossal Todra Gorges (600 feet). In the afternoon, you will set out across the barren desert land in your 4-wheel drive vehicle. If desired, set off by camel for a 2-hour trek out to the oasis where you will spend the night in Berber tents! Think a camel ride isn’t possible? Think again! Adapted camel saddles are available!**
**You are the best judge of whether this will be desirable or possible for you. Even our adapted camel saddle requires some upper body strength. Alternatively, take a 4×4 out to the desert camp or stay at the auberge at the edge of the desert.**
Dinner: At Berber Tents
Day 3 Ourzazate B, D
After a traditional Berber breakfast, you will depart from the Sahara en route to Ouarzazate. Enjoy the rugged rock formations and unique barren landscape until you reach Ouarzazate. Ouarzazate is home to an active film studio that has filmed several famous movies including Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia. If desired in the afternoon, take a tour of the studio and get a behind-the-scenes look at film making!
Dinner: At Kasbah
Day 4 Aït Ben Haddou/Marrakech B
Today, if desired, visit Aït Ben Haddou – a ksar made of earthen clay structures built into the side of a rock. Made famous by the likes of movies and TV shows such as Gladiator, The Passion of Christ, and Game of Thrones, Aït Ben Haddou is well worth a visit. Accessibility is a concern at Aït Ben Haddou but not to worry, if you want to explore around the city in a wheelchair, consider a Joelette Trekking Wheelchair tour. Two assistants, a trekking wheelchair, and an adventurous spirit are all it takes to explore Aït Ben Haddou in style! Afterwards, with amazing memories and souvenirs in your bags, return to Marrakech to end your tour.
Our activities and accommodations are designed to be fully wheelchair accessible, however, there may be aspects of every tour that are difficult or even impossible for some wheelchair users. The only way we can be sure a tour will be fully accessible for you is to communicate directly with each individual regarding your specific needs. Please contact us and we can send you a link with our mobility questionnaire to see how we can specifically customize this itinerary to fit your needs and desires.
