This 9 day holiday will transport you far from the trappings of modern day living to a land of untouched desert dunes, verdant oases and the traditions of local populations whose way of life dates back centuries. Each stop on your tour of the Moroccan Sahara will reveal a new layer of its natural beauty and cultural richness.

Traveling out from your first night’s stay in a luxury riad in Marrakesh, you will first have a chance to visit the legendary Ouarzazate film studios, where you might recognize the backdrop for films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Babel or Gladiator. However, after a night spent in the Temple des Arts, prepare to leave the world of make-believe behind and set off on your own desert adventure.

Sleep beneath the stars and witness the clearest of night skies from a luxury bivouac in Erg Chigaga, and be sure to wake up in time to take in the truly awe-inspiring sight of a desert sunrise over a sea of sand dunes. Feast on sumptuous picnics in beautiful oases and eat freshly picked dates in the Draa valley. Marvel at the other-worldly rock formations in the Dades gorges and wander through palmgroves at Zagora with your own private guide.

The natural delights are only part of what makes this such a wonderful desert exploration. Throughout your stay in beautiful desert encampments, riads and luxury eco-lodges, you will also have the opportunity to learn about traditional bread-making and cookery, meet the potters of Tamegroute and discover their crafts, visit a library with parchments and manuscripts dating back to the 9th century, and lose yourself in local mythology as a storyteller weaves magical tales for you over dinner at sunset.

  • A luxury 4x4 with chauffeur at your disposal during the whole trip
  • A qualified guide at your disposal during your stay, who will show you the best secret haunts to discover.
  • One night with dinner at La Maison Arabe, an indispensable place in the medina of Marrakech, with its restaurant, amongst the most reputable in the town.
  • A night with dinner at Temple des Arts in Ouarzazate a true homeage to the world of cinema.
  • One night with private dinner in a luxury camp in Chegaga Dunes.
  • A bread-making and cooking workshop in the middle of the desrt.

  • Two nights with dinner in Desert Azalai Lodge in Zagora.
  • A stroll in the palmgroves with your guide who will explain the principles of crop irrigation in the region.
