(2 days tour from Ouarzazate to Mhamid )
1st day: Ouarzazate – M’hamid
Morning departure south over the Tizi-n-Tinfifte pass to Agdez. Descending from the pass you will be amazed at the view of the extensive oasis and the number of palm trees, all indicating the beginning of the Dra’a Valley with its thousands of date palms, producing an amazing 44 varieties of dates. The date harvest starts in September and lasts a couple of months, so that is the best time to stop in Agdez for the freshest ones. After a short tea break here, we continue by driving away from the main road along the ancient caravan route
Soon after the police checkpoint in Tansikht, we come to the village of Tinsouline, from where you can drive just a kilometre or so off-road to the fascinating rock carvings of animals long extinct in Morocco at Foum Chenna, some 4000 years old. Zagora is the largest town in the whole area and where we shall stop for lunch.
In the afternoon we drive further south still, to M’hamid, the very gate to the desert and the end of the paved road. This is where the Sahara starts. Here a one-one and a half-hour camel ride leads to the highest dune to enjoy an unforgettable sunset.
You have dinner and spend the night at an authentic nomad camp with shared bathroom facilities and a private tent for each couple or family.
Alternatively, you can choose a luxury camp with private bathroom, king-sized beds, beautiful Moroccan furnishings and lamps tastefully arranged to enhance your enjoyment of the silence and beauty of the dunes.
2nd day: M’Hamid – Ouarzazate
If you wake up early enough, you can watch the spectacle of the sunrise, when the colour of the dunes and the play of shadows are an awesome sight. After breakfast, there will still be time for a long walk in the dunes.
The return trip begins along another track crossing the “hammada” (flat, stony desert) before joining the paved road and drive to Tamegroute for a visit to the potteries. Later we pass through Tamgroute, where a stop for the potteries famous for the green glaze, which you may have already seen in Marrakesh, and also for its ancient Quranic library with exquisite hand-written Arabic texts.
From here the road leads north again to Tamnougalt Kasbah (one of the most ancient Kasbahs in the south of Morocco) for lunch. We arrive back in Ouarzazate, at the end of the afternoon, on the other side of the mountain pass of Tizi-n-Tinfifite (1660m).
