Itinerary / more information
Day 1 - Marrakech Welcome to Morocco! Following your transfer from the airport to our joining hotel you can relax by the hotel pool before the pre-departure meeting at 18.00 where you will meet your fellow travellers.
Day 2 - Zagora Today we enjoy a stunning drive over the High Atlas en-route to Zagora. We pass through the Draa Valley a green and lush land of palmeries and amazing vistas. It is then time to head towards the great desert, where we transfer to camels for a trek into the Sahara Desert for a night at our Berber Camp. We enjoy local food, music and an amazing night out under the Saharan stars.
Day 3 - Marrakech Leaving the desert, we travel back to Marrakech. We arrive back in Marrakech, where we have dinner in Djemaa El Fna (at own cost).
Day 4 - Essaouira We leave Marrakech after breakfast and take a leisurely drive to Essaouira; a colourful fishing town situated within 15th century Portuguese fortifications, where great beaches and surf beckon. You have the day to relax on the beach or alternatively explore the UNESCO-listed medina with its various souks and woodcarving workshops. Any city gate leads to the medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists shops – buy a carpet or Thuya wood carving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets. There is the opportunity to do some optional activities, such as quad biking, surfing, horse trekking and wind surfing. Enjoy a great night out in Essaouira.
Day 5 - Essaouira After breakfast this morning over-looking the Atlantic, the day offers free time for you to independently explore. Hotel check out is at 12 noon and at this point our holiday concludes. If you would like to end your holiday in Marrakech, please see below.
Please note: For all 2021 departures, our tour will include a transfer back to Marrakech where our tour ends.
