Royal Luxury Camp Tours

3 days tour from Fes to Merzouga

Tours from Fes to the desert and back are being increasingly requested.  This particular tour from Fes to the dunes of Erg Chebbi  highlights both the desert and the amazing diversity of Moroccan landscapes.

In the Middle Atlas Mountains, you can watch Berber apes in the cedar woods, pass many traditional Berber villages, and visit the famous Toudgha Gorges.  On the way back to Fes, you will observe the vast numbers of date palms grown in the Ziz Valley, famous for its date festival.  The incredible and awe-inspiring fossil finds on display in Erfoud bear witness as to just how ancient this part of the country is.

The desert tour’s highlights are undoubtedly riding camels, walking barefoot in the wind-blown sand dunes, and marvelling at the slow dip of the sun beyond the horizon.  Mint tea and an authentic Moroccan dinner under a starlit sky are perfect ways to start the exotic evening.  And the day ends with Berber music round a camp fire and the calm of the night in a luxury tent.
