Day 2
Today you'll take a stroll around Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, one of Morocco's most recognisable UNESCO World Heritage sites.

You'll be picked up from your riad in the medina and take via private transfer back to the airport in time for your flight home.

A visit to the Sahara is for many people one of the highlights of Morocco; one of those bucket list, once-in-a-lifetime trips. The distances from Marrakesh are very large (it’s an eight-hour drive straight to the fringes of the desert, let alone the camps!), but fortunately the route, along the stunning southern oasis valleys, is just as memorable. A circuit out to the Sahara Desert and back through the palm groves with their crumbling kasbahs can be followed with a few days in Marrakesh to relax, giving you an itinerary full of incredible memories and countless spectacular photo opportunities!

2 nights Ait Ben Haddou – 1 night Erg Chebbi – 2 nights Skoura – 4 nights Marrakesh
