The Southern Oasis, Kasbahs & Desert Morocco Cultural Tour

Do you want to spend a basic tour as many other people, or do you want to come with us to enjoy the extraordinary hidden corners and aspect of people and places in Morocco? I am sure this tour will make you change your stereotype about travelling just as your mood and your motivation as too.

Accordingly, this Southern Oasis, Kasbahs & Desert Morocco Cultural Tour will jump you off to some of the most fabulous places and sites of the southern east of Morocco and will make you live an unparalleled local experience . You will be driven via the spectacular piece of engineering Tizi n’Tichka and its pulse-racing series of switchbacks providing even more jaw-dropping views. Passing through the 1956 abandoned Glaoui Kasbah, Talouate the most magnificent sights of the Atlas, and the UNESCO-protected red mud-brick of Ait Benhaddou.

After this stopover point for lunch we will continue via a Thousands Kasbahs route to the gorgeous gorges of Dades and Todgha. Then, we set the compass for Morocco’s wildest desert of Erg Chigaga via Draa valley and a myriad of colors within the rolling hills and mountains. The landscape seems barren yet life finds a way to push its way through the rocky soil. Leaving the desert to the struggling village of Taliouine, the African center of l’orrouge (red gold) or saffron, the most expensive spice. Heading north to Marrakech via the other side of the high Atlas Mountain.
