Overview of hello sahara tour 5 days 4 nights

Like most of our Morocco tours, our Hello Sahara journey begins in Marrakech and will take you and your companions through the mighty Atlas Mountains, past the Gateway to the Sahara to where the paved roads end, and then beyond…

Camel Rides and Camping in the Sahara

The highlight of our Hello Sahara tour for most people is the 2 hours of camel riding across the dunes as a caravan followed by a traditional nomad camp and supper accompanied by a stunning sunset.

Wine is available to cool off as the sun sets before everyone retreats to their traditional tents, followed by a hearty breakfast the next morning to sustain you for the 2 hour camel ride back to civilization.

Don’t forget, every part of your Moroccan tour is customizable with Morocco Sunny Days, so please don’t hesitate to ask if we can accommodate your requests.

Daily programme of hello sahara tour 5 days 4 nights
Day 1: Marrakesh → Ouarzazate → Agdz

Your journey departs from busy Marrakech in the morning using the pass of Tizi-n-Tichka in the high Atlas mountains, affording you some amazing panoramas of this stunning and often snow-capped range. Don’t worry, this may be a Sahara desert focused journey, but there’s always time to stop and take pictures.

From there we shall descend down to Ouarzazte, often called the Gateway to the Sahara and home to many impressive Kasbahs, including the Kasbah of Taourirt right at the centre.

We’ll organize some amazing local food for lunch including both meat and vegetarian/vegan options before departing to the Dra’a Valley and the village of Agdz where we will make a palace our home for the night, with the vast expanse of the Sahara waiting for us.

Day 2: Agdz → Zagora → M’hamid → Erg Lihoudi Dunes

After a hearty breakfast of your choice we’ll start the day by visiting a Kasbah in Agdz bfore hissing the road to Zagora along the remainder of the stunning Dra’a valley, and then on to M’Hamid.

There the paved roads end, and the option to continue to our desert campsite at Erg Lihoudi on camel-back will be available, taking most people around 2 hours to complete.

We’ll bed down in a traditional nomadic tent with tea and supper as we watch the magnificent Saharan sunset.

Day 3: Erg Lihoudi Dunes → M’hamid → Erg Chigaga Dunes

Waking up in the desert for breakfast is always a strange sensation for our guests and often one that generates a mild sense of disbelief!

After breakfasting we’ll take another camel ride back to M’hamid where you’ll already be excited for lunch again in this beautiful oasis of palms.

From there it’s back into the comfort of our luxury Toyota Landcruisers, chosen by us for their desert-crossing ability as we deliver you across the Saharan sands to dunes of Erg Chigaga where we will again camp in the style of Nomads.

Day 4: Erg Chigaga Dunes → Foum Zguid → Taznakht

Another 90km of desert driving after breakfast will give you enough photo opportunities and memorable sights to satisfy the Saharan portion of your adventure as we pass out of the desert past Lake Iriqui and into the mountains.

We’ll stop at Foum Zguid for lunch and then head back to Ouarzazate past Taznakht.

Day 5: Taznakht → Ouarzazate/Ait Ben Haddou → Marrakesh

Finally, they’ll be time to visit the Kasbah of Tifoultout as well as the world famous cinema studios, before heading to Ait Ben Haddou – a jewel of Moroccan culture where we will also have our final lunch before heading back to Marrakech taking a little bit of the desert soul with us.

    Meno male che abbiamo conosciuto Yassine!! Tramite un passaparola di amici siamo arrivati a Yassine. Non avrei potuto chiedere di meglio. Una guida molto informata, parla diverse lingue e sa tanto di ogni cosa anche non inerente al Marocco. Una persona educatissima e disponibile per ogni necessità. La frase che più mi ha fatta sentire serena è stata quella che spesso ripete “take your time” ….che altro chiedere durante un viaggio dove vuoi solo rilassarti!?? Yassine è la guida che assolutamente consiglierei, avevamo una bimba di due anni e chiaramente aveva messo a disposizione seggiolini perfetti, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla e la sua cordialità rimane impressa. Abbiamo fatto una giornata nel deserto di Agafay e un giorno intero con lui alle cascate di Sti Fadma. Grazie Yassine.Gaia, Raffaele e Sveva !

    Morocco tour with Yassine Amazing 6 day tour around Morocco with Yassine! We loved our trip - especially the overnight trip to the Sahara - and wish we could have stayed longer. Very well organised and a great way to see the country.

    3 day tour with Yassine Yassine promised us a trip to remember, and he sure delivered. - His passion for Morocco shone through as he shared his experiences and answered all our questions in our quest to learn more about the country. - His easy going, welcoming and fun natured spirit made us feel like a part of the Moroccan family.- After my 3-day tour, he even helped coordinate any new arrangements I needed during the remainder of my stay in Morocco. - there was one hiccup I had on arrival at the airport and his team quickly resolved the matter with ease- He gave us enough space to allow us to enjoy moments on our own - He is a Safe and reliable driver and was always on time- He ensured we had everything we needed and that all our requests were met (dietary, sleeping arrangements, shopping etc) - the length of the tour was managed with sufficient time so that we were not rushed and could have stopped whenever we wanted. - Good with the camera and always ready to take great photos of us- Hotels chosen for us were very beautiful, relaxing and comfortable and seemed to be in the ideal locations- it was great to have someone else do the planning for once I definitely recommend Yassine (Morocco Sunny Days) to plan your entire trip in Morocco.

    Amazing adventures with Yassine Yassine is simply the best to go on a cross-country trip with! We enjoyed a wonderful and magical experience going to the Desert Camp in Erg Chigage with him and an even more charming trip to port town of Essaouira. He's not just an experienced driver but also a lovely, kind and funny person - it's fun to be on the road with him. We always felt secure and well looked after as Yassine is very attentive and makes every journey or trip as comfortable and interesting as possible. We've seen and learned a lot during our travels with him and also enjoyed some great conversations! Keep up the amazing work!
