    DAY 1 - Fes – Ifrane – Medilt – Merzouga

    DAY 2 - Merzouga - Rissani - Erg Chebbi

    Today we will explore a region of desert landscapes, but will start with a visit to the seasonal lake of DayetSrji, where we might encounter pink flamingos.

    The desert against the lake provides a beautiful contrast. We will also visit the Khamila village, where we listen to the Gnaoua music, a style typical in the region.

    Then, explore the ancient city of Rissani, which thrived from the 8th to 14th century due to the caravan routes. Here you will have the chance to visit the famous market that takes place 3 times a week.

    In the afternoon before the sunset we will get set to cross the desert landscape with a camel trek for about 2 hours to reach our oasis in the desert for the night. We will spend the night in the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi in the desert.
