Itinerary of Imlil Sahara desert tour

Day 1Marrakech – Atlas Mountains – Imlil

The journey begins at 8 a.m. with a 1h20-minute drive from Marrakech to the Asni Saturday market, the Moulay Brahim Gorges in the south, Agersioual, and Imlil Village (1,740m). We begin the walk with the local mule team and ascend over the Tizi n’Tamatert pass at 2.358 metres. Lunch will be given beside the river or on the Pass. The stunning sweep of the Imlil and Imnane valleys is visible at this location. You will arrive at Armed Village after another 2 hours and thirty minutes of walking, and at the Guesthouse there, you will have a delicious supper of Moroccan food. The trip will consist of a 1h20 drive and 4 to 5 hours of trekking.

Day 2Imlil – Tizi n Tichka Pass 2660m – Zagora

You set out on your trip to the southern part of Morocco after breakfast. The car will take you across the High Atlas Mountain at the Tizi nTichka pass (at an altitude of 2260m), through a zigzagging road with fantastic scenery of the Berber villages in the Imouzzar valley, one of the most natural communities in Southern Morocco.

Dinner and breakfast will serve at camp. You will get to see the 15th-century fortified village of Ait Benhaddou. Next, you move on to Ouarzazate to visit the Taourirt Kasbah, taking a short break at a hill on the city entrance to catch a beautiful view of the old decorations and cinema studios in the city. After lunch, you move on to Zagora via Agdez and into the Draa valley. At 1km away from Zagora, you begin the camel ride, which takes you towards the nomadic camp in Nekhla dunes while you take in the beautiful view of the North African sunset.

Day 3Zagora – Ouarzazate – Marrakech

Get up early to catch the sunrise, after which we take breakfast. You may opt for a camel trek to meet your driver, after which you continue on a drive along the Draa Valley with stops at different locations for photoshoots and lunch before we make the return trip to Marrakech via Ouarzazate.

It is essential to state that the Nekhla dunes are semi-desert. Still, it offers an excellent opportunity to explore desert life, complete with a camel ride and a night in a nomadic camp if you plan a short trip to Morocco. But if you are spending up to 3 days, the Merzouga dunes, a full desert, will be a better choice. End of Imlil Sahara desert tour.
