Itinerary of the Sahara Tour from Casablanca

Day 1: Arrival in Casablanca

You will be picked up at the airport, port, or hotel to begin the Sahara Tour from Casablanca. The city is recognized as Morocco’s economic center and largest metropolitan. The Hassan I Mosque, which is Morocco’s largest mosque, will be our destination on this day. It is situated on a peninsula on the west side of the city, facing the Atlantic Ocean. After lunch, we’ll go on a city tour and visit Casablanca’s beach. You’ll be staying in a hotel room for the night.

Day 2: Casablanca – Rabat – Chefchaouen

After breakfast, we drive down the coast to Rabat, one of Morocco’s royal capitals and the country’s present capital. Among the city’s features are the Hassan Tower, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, and the Kasbah of Oudaya.

Following lunch, we go north through Ouazzane to Chefchaouen, the Rif Mountains’ Blue City. The white and blue-painted buildings and roadways of the city are well-known. A hotel will give overnight lodgings.

Day 3: Chefchaouen – Volubilis – Meknes – Fes

We’ll go to Volubilis to look at the ancient Roman ruins. It has been scrupulously protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It features several exquisite mosaics as well as ancient pillars and archways.

After visiting the ruins, we go to Meknes. One of Morocco’s royal cities, the city is renowned as the Ismaili sect’s capital. In fact, we’ll visit Bab Al-Mansour, the Sahrij Souani basin, the Royal stable, the granary, and the Moulay Ismail Mausoleum before spending the night in a Riad in Fes.

Day 4: A guided tour of Fes

We will be accompanied by a local guide as we see Fes’ highlights. We begin the day by seeing the Royal Palace entrance and the well-preserved medieval Medina, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Blue Gate, also known as Bab Boujloud, serves as the entryway to the old Medina.

You’ll enter the Medina to see the Medrasa Bouanania, the Najarine fountain, the Tanneries, and the Quarawiyyin mosque and university, the world’s oldest institution. Following that, we depart Medina for a visit to the Jewish district, often known as “the Mellah”. In the late afternoon, we walk to a historic fortification for a panoramic view over the Medina and the city of Fes. Return to your Riad for the night.

Day 5: Fes – Ifrane – Azrou – Midelt – Ziz Valley – Merzouga

On our way to Ifrane, we travel via the village of Imouzzer, which is renowned for its subzero temperatures, heavy snowfall, and rural homes in the shape of mountains. The Barbary Macaques dwell in the cedar forest, which we’ll visit next. We’ll then head to Midelt for lunch. To reach the Sahara desert, we must first cross the Tizi-n-Tilghmt pass and the Ziz river.

We arrived at the desert late in the afternoon. Afterward, you’ll be taken to a high dune to see the gorgeous sunset. Following that, we’ll drive to the desert camp for a Berber drum concert under the stars. You’ll have dinner and spend the night at the Kasbah.

Day 6: Merzouga

Most of the day will be spent at the hotel or touring the small yet intriguing desert villages. In the afternoon, you’ll ride in 4-wheel drive vehicles over the desert to the beautiful Sahara sand dunes.
You will go on a half-hour camel ride out onto the dunes to see the sunset. Eventually, the night will be spent in Berber tents (Dinner is included).

Day 7: Merzouga – Rissani – Erfoud – Todra Gorges – Dades Valley

To go to Rissani, the former Tafilalet government center, we leave the desert and travel there. Rissani is an important regional commercial town with a vibrant souk on most days of the week.

We travel to Erfoud after seeing one of the petrified marble manufacturers in Rissani Souk. Afterward, we head to the Todra Gorges through the Touroug and Tinjdad palm fields. The course of the Todra River through the mountains has created a magnificent red canyon with granite walls. Indeed, climbers will be drawn to these gorges.

After lunch, we drive through Boumalne Dades to the Dades valley to see the “monkey fingers” rock formation and a viewing point on a hilltop overlooking the valley. A hotel will ultimately include both meals and overnight accommodations.

Day 8: Dades Valley – Rose Valley – Skoura – Ouarzazate

Following an early breakfast, you depart for Ouarzazate via the 1000 Kasbahs route. You may visit the historic Kasbahs among the palm groves if you choose.

A trek up into the Dades Gorges is well worth your time as you witness this incredible natural phenomenon. When you arrive in Ouarzazate, you may see this southern town, which is perhaps most known now for the films that have been made there. Undeniably, the hotel will provide dinner.

Day 9: Ouarzazate – Taliouine – Taroudante

Departure in the morning for Taliouine, Morocco’s Saffron capital and a gorgeous oasis village. Then, we proceed to Taroudant, a historic regional capital and the first capital city of the Saadian dynasty, located at the confluence of the Souss river and the High Atlas mountains. In fact, the “Little Marrakech” provides a fantastic picture of southern Morocco.

Overall, Taroudant provides a nice location and a unique product to scholars who may relax in the shadow of ochre walls and enjoy the sweetness of life and Berber hospitality of Moroccans all year. Lastly, visit the stunningly beautiful sooks famed for their leather iron, wood, painted wood, pottery, and jewelry.

Day 10: Taroudante – Agadir – Essaouira

Following breakfast, go to Agadir to enjoy the expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean. Agadir’s vast, shallow beach spans as far as the eye can see, set on a crescent of sand.

After eating lunch in Agadir, we continue our drive northward toward Essaouira, a city with a distinct atmosphere where you can study the Phoenician, Berber, Portuguese, Jewish, and French pasts in the well-preserved architecture. Basically, its charming fishing harbor, whitewashed houses with blue paintwork, and little alleyways show the Portuguese spirit of early inhabitants.

Day 11: Essaouira – Marrakech

Following breakfast, we depart for Marrakech along the gorgeous inland route with the forest of Argan trees that exist only in this region of the globe, stopping to snap photographs with goats picking’ Argan fruits.

Afterward, go to an Argan oil cooperative managed by local women. You can take a tour to see how Argan oil is created, interact with the women, and buy delights like handcrafted soap or ‘Amlou,’ a typical Moroccan jam, to take home. Next, we proceed to Marrakech where we have an overnight stay at a hotel or Riad.

Day 12: A guided tour of Marrakech

This day is a sightseeing trip of Marrakesh, renowned as the “Pearl of the South,” to experience the enthralling history and rich cultural legacy of this historic city. Later, you will see the Saadian tombs, the Koutoubia Mosque, the city’s tallest structure, the Bahia Palace, and Majorelle Gardens.

Moreover, you will visit the souks as well as the world-famous Djemaa El Fna, which provides a variety of entertainment (storytellers, water vendors, acrobats, snake-charmers, magicians, musicians, orange-juice sellers, open-air grilled food stalls). A Fantasia supper at a local restaurant is optional.
