DAY 1

Marrakesh – High Atlas Mountains – Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou – Ouarzazate – Roses Valley – Boumalne Dades

We will pick you up from your Riad in Marrakesh at 7:00AM and start travelling towards the Atlas mountains before reaching our first site, Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However, we might not stop in this Kasbah until day 3 so as to reach the sunset in the Sahara especially when the day light is short. This Kasbah is perhaps the most impressive and well-preserved fortress cities in Morocco, which the Moroccan Government itself jumped on the bandwagon in 1994 to rehabilitate the Kasbah in order to preserve the cultural and national heritage. The Kasbahs were a major stop for camel caravans carrying salt through the Sahara and returning with gold, silver and slaves. We continue along the route, arriving at Ouarzazate, the gateway to the Saharan desert, the Moroccan city known for Hollywood movies being located and filmed here. Top Hollywood blockbusters which have been filmed in Ouarzazate include movie titles such as The Gladiator, The Mummy, Kingdom of Heaven, Prince of Persia and Lawrence of Arabia. We continue to make our way, experiencing the roses valley to get to Dades Gorges via Roses Valley.
