At 8 o’clock, your driver will pick you up from your accommodation to start your trip. The highway south from Ouarzazate leads across barren rocky plains of Anti-Atlas, climbs over and descend through spectacular stratified rock scenery to Draa valley (Morocco’s longest river).In the distance, the peak of Djbal Kissane rises like a massive Bedouin tent that open arms to a wide green swath of date palms and pink mud villages. After a break to enjoy the ancient caravan’s route, we will hit the road following the palm -line south of Agdez, passing by the impressive Tamnougalt Kasbah. The valley then narrows to a rocky defile for a short way before reaching the oasis of Zagora- the springboard (22 days to Timbuktu) for trips into the desert and palmeries of the Sahara-where we will stop for traditional Moroccan lunch. From here, we continue to the Mhamid’s oasis to start your camel ride to the camp. After a tea of hospitality at the bivouac there time enjoy the sunset, dinner, and a starry night in the desert.
