Flights abound to Casablanca & Marrakesh. Search the internet for the best prices in your area. We recommend CheapTickets.com
How long does the traveling take?
From Marrakesh to Ouzarzate takes around 4 hours.
Ouzarzate to the end of the tarmac takes around 3 hours.
We normally spend two hours in a 4x4 traveling across the desert.
Can we use a camel?
You can take camels from the end of the tarmac road out into the desert.
What vehicles do you use?
Exclusively air conditioned 4x4's. Land Rover Discovery's or Toyota LandCruiser's are our normal choice. These give a maximum of seven seats, but minus the driver and guide.
Who will drive us?
Our drivers are all Moroccan locals, your tour guide speaks Arabic, French, English and enough Japanese to get by.
How hot is it?
Temperatures in August can reach over 50 degrees Celsius - over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Travel in the desert is impractical at this time of year, though the mountains and Imperial cities remain accessible.
However, with the exception of August, temperatures are excellent. June, July and September can still be very hot, Spring and Autumn are perfect.
Desert nights can seem cold, largely due to the big difference in temperature between day and night. Do bring some warm clothing.
What does it cost?
An air conditioned 4x4 vehicle with an English speaking tour guide costs from 200 Euro's a day, including fuel. You pay for any accommodation and food yourselves. However, we can recommend or reserve suitable hotels and restaurants along the route.
Riads(traditional townhouses centered around a courtyard) cost from 100 Euro's a night in Marrakesh, and from around 40 Euro's a night in Fes.
Hotels we recommend start at around 35 Euro's a night in the countryside, but there are many more extravagant options available if you desire.
A Desert Bivouac with guide costs around 35 Euro's per night, per person.
