More information about the private Marrakech to Erg Chigaga Tour

It’s a spectacular trip— Because the drive is a reason in itself for visiting the desert; It is because of an eclectic mix of mountain passes, lush valleys, then the Berber villages clinging to the mountainside, dilapidated kasbahs, palm groves, and awe-inspiring rock formations.

Ideally, the preferred itinerary, provided you have time, is to spend one night at a guesthouse en route to the desert, three nights in the desert, then return to Marrakech in one trip via Foum Zguid (this being a circular route).
