Day 3. Skoura – Dades – Gorges Toudra – Erfoud – Merzouga (breakfast and dinner)
After an early breakfast you will leave for Tinghir & Merzouga. After an hour’s drive through arid, dry land, spotting now and again the nomads at the foot of the hills, the magical town of Kelaa Mgouna is upon you, located in the middle of a large, green valley.
Enjoy a refreshment stop in the Dades Gorges, by a river that runs 200km. The next stop is Tinghrir and the valley of Todra. In the afternoon, following the Todra and Gheris rivers until Erfoud and Merzouga, in the Erg Chebbi dunes you will meet Lahcen and his family, who will welcome you to their Azawad campsite. The camel drivers will lead you on your dromedary to the edge of the dunes to see the once in a lifetime sunset over the Sahara. Tonight, only the dunes & the stars – dinner and a night in the desert. Your room is a nomadic tent, decorated with the finest Berber art crafted materials. Dinner & overnight in a Standard Tent.
