Ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime?

Hey there, fellow adventurer! Ready to dive into an epic 7-day journey from the lively streets of Marrakech to the mind-blowing Erg Chigaga dunes? Well, buckle up, my friend, because we’re about to revamp your Marrakech to Erg Chigaga expedition in a way that’ll have you packing your bags in no time!

The Ultimate Sahara Expedition

Let’s get the ball rolling with the lowdown. Our adventure kicks off right in the heart of Marrakech, and from there, we’ll journey through Mhamid, Oued Naam, Lotide, and finally land amidst the iconic Erg Chigaga. But wait, the fun doesn’t stop there; the return trip is just as thrilling! We’ll hop on our trusty camels, making pit stops at Bougarn Dunes and Mezouaria Dunes before circling back to Marrakech.

Saddle Up for an Unforgettable Ride

Now, picture this: Erg Chigaga, a sand dune paradise nestled in the Sahara. To get there, you’ve got to saddle up on noble camels, and I promise you, this experience is going to be etched into your memory forever. It’s a wild ride through one of the world’s most unforgettable landscapes!

Hassle-Free Transfers

Now, how do you get in and out of this desert wonderland, you ask? Well, we’ll swoop in and pick you up from your Marrakech digs. If your riad isn’t car-friendly, no worries, our driver will park nearby and come to your rescue.

On your grand finale day, we’ll drop you off as close to your riad or hotel as possible. And if you need a helping hand, our trusty driver can even give your riad a jingle to coordinate the meetup. Easy-peasy, right?

Culinary Delights of the Sahara

Now, let’s talk about the grub because, believe me, your taste buds are in for a treat! During our Atlas Mountain escapades, our Berber guides and muleteers whip up some lip-smacking, fresh, and healthy meals. Imagine breakfast with jam, bread, butter, cookies, fruit, juice, and a piping hot cup of java or milk.

Lunchtime? Brace yourself for salads bursting with tomatoes, carrots, lentils, beans, rice, or pasta. And on some occasions, we’ll even throw in some fishy delights like sardines or tuna, paired with seasonal fruits.

And dinner? Oh boy, it’s a feast fit for royalty! We’re talking soup, classic Moroccan tagine, couscous, olives, and a sprinkle of nuts and fruit for that perfect finale.

Got dietary preferences? You bet! Just give us a heads-up when you book, and we’ll cater to your needs. And don’t be shy to remind your guide and cook about your food desires on day one of your epic trek.
