On our way to Zagora, we'll get the chance to visit the world's largest palm grove. we'll stop to see the underground kasbah and Koran library of old Tamegroute before we arrive in M'hamid. We spend the night in nomad tents at a Berber camp in the Erg Lihoudi sand dunes.
Wake up early morning to watch mesmerizing sunrise shining across the dunes. Back to the bivouac for a traditional breakfast. After breakfast, take a camel ride back to Mhamid, where we'll catch our 4WD vehicle and travel via the Draa valley to Agdz, exploring the region's real treasures. The trip continues to Ait Benhaddou, a fortified Ksar with exquisite Kasbahs. We'll go there to have lunch at one of the local restaurants.
