3 Days Trip: Valleys of Southeast Morocco & Erg Chebbi From Marrakech
The valleys of southeast Morocco are stunningly beautiful, with mountainous terrain slowly giving way to the vast expanse of the Sahara.
Our 3 day Morocco sahara tours show you the treasures of North Africa, from the imposing Atlas Mountains to the shifting sands of the Sahara. You’ll stay in a traditional Berber camp and experience what it’s like to ride a camel in the dry heat of the desert, as well as witnessing one of nature’s most stunning sights: a desert sunrise.
