- 5 days, Jebel Bani, Erg Chigaga
- Total distance ca. 60-70 km over 5 days.
Arrival in Zagora, transfer to camp below Jebel Bani
Climb up the steep rocky path to the top of Jebel Bani, follow the river valley until we reach a small oasis with a well where we will set up camp
Follow the riverbed to the rocky flats, maybe we will meet some local nomads that camp in this area. Camp in the flats
Today we will cross the flats with the tall dunes of Erg Chigaga on the horizon. We will aim to have lunch between the first dunes under the Tamarist trees and head further in for our camp for the night
The first target for today is ascending the highest dune of Erg Chigaga to enjoy the amazing views from the top. We might be able to spot our camel caravan setting up camp in the distance
More hiking in the dunes, towards the piste where we will be picked up after a couple of hours
Group trip Marrakech - spectacular landscapes - from 1300 € per person
7 days total, 4.5 days hiking, Marrakech, Ait Ben Haddou, Sidi Ali, Ramlia, Ouzina, Merzouga
- Total distance ca. 60 km over 4.5 days
- Fitness level 2/5
Arrival in Marrakech
Day 1 (Feb. 6th 2022):
Pick up in Marrakech early, drive through the Atlas mountains, short visit in Ait Ben Haddou, lunch, drop of at Auberge around sunset
(Depending on weather and fitness, camp might be in different spots):
The trek begins with a nice flat walk towards a mountain range that we will need to cross (around 400 m height difference, but nothing too steep). The side of the mountain has some dunes before turning into rocky slopes.
Once we reach the pass, we will have some spectacular views of the valley beyond. We have to find a safe way down into the valley for the camels and start our descend. We follow the valley for a day and likely run into local nomads with their goat herds. We stop regularly at some wells to stock up on water, wash our hair and if you want your laundry. All along the way we can find beautiful rocks and flowers, see lizards and tracks of desert foxes.
We cross a big Ouad (a most likely dry river bed) and head into the tiny town of Ramlia, depending on the time of day for coffee, lunch or a snack. If we are lucky the little bakery is open and we can stock up on some delicious cookies.
We walk along a mountain range which will give us shelter from the wind if necessary. We cross some more small mountains, cross small dune fields and dry river beds, have a break at a small oasis and end the trip in my favourite dunes of Morocco (as they are pretty untouched by tourism). Here we will be picked up and driven to Merzouga, where we will spend the night.

Return to Marrakech via Minibus

Day 1 (Feb. 21st 2022):
Leave Merzouga after breakfast. Hiking today will be mostly in sand, crossing the dunes, lunch in an oasis, set up camp behind the dunes (optional luxury camp)
Today we will hike along a dry river bed, with great views of the dunes all day. Set up camp close to Hassi Begaa
We will explore the local mountains, climb up for an amazing sunset view, same camp as day 2
