After breakfast you’ll cross the High Atlas Mountains via the N’Talghemt Pass (1,907 m / 6,2,56 ft) and then slowly descend into the Ziz Valley, one of the longest valleys in Morocco. Flocks of sheep and goats will be grazing alongside the road and up into the hillsides and if you look closely enough, you’ll see the Berber shepherds watching over them. Later in the day, you’ll make your entry into the city of Erfoud. Erfoud is the International Capital of Fossils as well as a film site for the recent movies The Mummy and King of Persia. Each year in October the city hosts the International Date Festival.
After passing through Erfoud, your journey continues off-road to the impressive Erg Chebbi Sand Dunes. About an hour later, you will arrive at the meeting point where you will board your camels. You will travel by camel approximately an hour out to the desert camp. You’ll find the camp in a beautiful and isolated location, nestled in the midst of the dunes. If you like, you can climb up to a high vantage point to watch the sunset. Afterwards, dinner will be served, followed by music. Your night will be spent under the stars in a genuine nomad tent.
