Lunch will be served in M’hamid. Early afternoon, we depart for Erg Chigaga dunes crossing different features of the desert; ‘Erg’, ‘Reg’, ‘Hammada’, oases. Erg Chigaga dunes are far away from civilization and the silence of the sand is overwhelming. Ride your camels across the dunes and enjoy one of the most dramatic sunsets over the color changing sands. Dinner under the stars next to the campfire, while entertained by the local nomads playing local music. Overnight at your deluxe Sahara desert camp.
After breakfast, the road takes us through another 90km of the desert with varying scenery, we first cross Lake Iriqui, the mountains and fossils following the old track of “Rally Paris Dakar” to Foum Zguid the first village after the desert, and where the paved road begins.

Enjoy a walk to explore the traditional Moroccan style of architecture in which the Kasbahs are built. We continue our way to Marrakesh through the High Atlas Mountains and Tizi n’Tichka pass.
