The first day you will be met at the airport (Ouarzazte or Agadir or Marrakesh) and will spend the night at a nearby hotel. We can arrange any class of hotel you prefer.

The next day we set off for the desert. Once having crossed the huge, we reach the beginning of the beautiful scenery of the Draa Valley and Berber kasbahs. The night will be spent in a hotel in Zagora.

We start day 3 by meeting with the caravan at the kasbah of Bni ali (40km from Zagora ). We will cross the Draa Valley to reach a place called FOUM TAKAT, where we can have lunch in the shadow of the Tamaris tree. In the afternoon we will walk towards a dam where we can camp .

After a breakfast of coffee, tea, bread, honey, jam and fruit we leave towards Ktaoua Kasbah — an occasion to be close to and touch the real life in the Kasbahs. Lunch will be served in the middle of the oasis .Around three o’clock we will leave with the caravan towards the dunes of Bougawarn, a place whose name means magic. Here we will camp and settle for a while.

On day 5, after having breakfast, we walk again across the oasis, finally coming to the last Kasbah. Along side the oasis we will have our lunch. Then at three pm we will walk towards the dunes to be closer and closer with mountains, the oasis and different kinds of dunes .

Day 6 will start with a walk towards another kasbah called the Kasbh of Oulad driss. Here we will spend some time because it is ancient and worth seeing. As for lunch, we will have the opportunity to eat with one of the village inhabitants. In the afternoon , we will go by taxi towards Zagora , where we can spend the night at the hotel

The next day is spent getting back to the point of departure and on day 8 you will head to home, sweet home.
