Dra'a Valley, Zagora, Mhamid dunes - 2 days
1st day: Ouarzazate - M’hamid
Morning departure by 4x4 to Agdez, where the Dra’a starts, for a short tea break, followed by some off-road driving along the ancient caravan route, arriving in Zagora in time for lunch. In the afternoon, M’hamid, where the road stops and gives way to the Sahara, is waiting. At a bivouac at the Erg Lihoudi dunes, there is time for a tea-break before riding camels for about an hour and a half. Enjoy the sunset from the top of the highest dune over the distant mountains, before the camels take us back to the bivouac of nomad tents for dinner and a night’s rest.
2nd day: M’Hamid – Ouarzazate
If you wake up early enough, you can watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the colour of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. After breakfast, there will still be time for a longer walk in the dunes. The return trip begins along another track crossing the “hammada” (flat, stony desert) before joining the paved road and drive to Tamegroute for a visit to the potteries. From here the road leads north again to Tamnougalt Kasbah (one of the most ancient Kasbahs in the south of Morocco) for lunch. We arrive back in Ouarzazate, at the end of the afternoon, on the other side of the mountain pass of Tizi-n-Tinfifite (1660m).
