From that, we carry on to the well-known Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou. A fortified settlement designated by UNESCO as a World Historic Site.

Eventually, we make our way to Boumalne Dades, where we will spend the night.
Day 2: Dades to Merzouga desert.
Following breakfast, we travel through the Dades valley, stopping at a vantage point above the valley to take in the breathtaking scenery of the Dades gorges. Next we go to Todra Gorges, where the Todra River cut out a great canyon through the mountains, creating a towering red cliff-sided gorge. Feel free to roam around the gorges and take in the scenery. After that, we travel through the Touroug and Tinjdad palm plantations. On the journey, there will be time for lunch.
We arrive in the afternoon in the Sahara desert of Merzouga. Where you transfer to camels to traverse the dusty desert. You will be taken to the top of a high dune to see the spectacular sunset. Next go to the desert luxury camp, where you may listen to Berber drum music while dancing around a bonfire beneath a big open sky of stars. Dinner and sleeping in the camp.
Day 3: Merzouga to Fes via Azrou and Ifrane.
The last day of your desert journey from Marrakech to Fes. You get up early in the morning to see the gorgeous sunrise in the midst of the desert.

Rissani is still an important commercial hub in the area, with a bustling souk on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. We proceed to Erfoud after a walk through Rissani souk, where we visit one of the fossilized marble factories.
