    Today, we drive from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou, via the Ounila Valley. Traverse the High Atlas Mountains via the highest main road pass in Morocco, at 2260m altitude, offering stunning views and exhilarating driving. The route passes lush valleys and traditional adobe Berber villages. After the pass, we get to the gateway of the desert where we will have a visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Ben Haddou. Visit this fortified village – essentially a living museum, it is a ksar comprising numerous dwellings, and for years used as the backdrop in many international films.

After lunch continue to Merzouga, at the end of the sealed road, with the expanse of the Erg Chebbi dunes visible. Your driver will drop you at the meeting point with your camel caravan and you will trek on camel back for approx. 1 hour to reach your choice of desert camp (standard or luxurious) in time for sunset and home for the night in the dunes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the essential items to bring during the desert trip?

1. Water
This is the first thing that must appear on your packing list if you are planning to go on a desert trip. It is recommended that you go with plenty of water as the possibility of getting dehydrated during hot and dusty desert days is extremely high. You should drink a gallon of water per day. Having some reserve quantity in your vehicle is also a nice backup idea.
2. Wide hat
Your adventure in the desert would put you under the hot sun for long hours. Hence, you would need something to provide your head with some protection against the effect of the dangerous weather. Having a normal cap will not be enough. It is necessary you go with a wide hat - wide enough to cover your neck against sunburn and keep your eyes away from the sun.
3. Structure for shade
A shade structure is another important item that needs to follow you to the desert. This becomes extremely useful if you're spending some time in one spot. It usually gets extremely hot and sunny during the afternoons in the desert. Having a canopy of some sort that would shield you from the hot weather and provide you with some comfort when you need to take a rest is highly recommended.
4. Sunglasses
You would not like to return from a desert trip and start having problems with your eyes. As such, it is important to put in the right measures to protect your eyes against any danger while you are enjoying your ride. Having a pair of good sunglasses in your desert trip packing list is essential. The eye is the lamp of the body, it must be well protected.
5. Toiletries
You should not discard your regular hygiene routine just because you found yourself in the middle of a dessert. Make sure you take all the regular necessary toiletries with you when you set out for a desert trip. Things like face wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, soap, body wash, body lotion, etc. should be in your bag.
6. Down Jacket
Well, this sounds strange, isn't it? You probably would not need a down jacket in a hot desert environment. But what if you find yourself stranded at night? You would be under extreme risk of hypothermia if you do not have warm clothes to put on. The desert - despite its insane hotness at daytime - sees some of its locations drop below freezing during the night. Hence, having a down jacket would come out handy at those moments. Although you might not use it, it is a safety measure just in case.
7. First-Aid kit
A First Aid kit is another item that should not be excluded on your packing list if you're planning to go on a desert trip. Such trips could produce a few unexpected circumstances, especially on your health, and you need to be prepared for them. Whether it is just a little cut, a scraped knee or a minor headache, having a First Aid kit will help you attend to emergencies quickly.
8. Bug Spray
No one wants to be a victim of insect attack when enjoying a cool evening rest after a hot afternoon ride in the desert. You could encounter bugs, mosquitoes, flies and other insects that could give you a tough time. Hence, you should consider going with a bug spray and other insecticides to deal with such threats and keep your experience pleasurable all through.
9. Matches or Lighter
These are small items that are easy to forget when planning to go on a desert trip, but you need to ensure you go with them. If you get stuck and need to camp overnight, fire starters would help you to make campfires, which would provide you with warmth and illumination. That could also be another
