Marrakech & the Sahara

The grandeur of the Sahara Desert is truly experienced on this trip as we journey through the palm groves of the Draa Valley to the gateway to the desert, Zagora. We then travel by camel into the sand dunes and oases of M'Hamid, where we spend the night at a traditional Bedouin camp under the stars. Next stop is the impressive 16th century kasbah of Ait Benhaddou before we continue our journey into the High Atlas Mountains to enjoy a peaceful walk around the remote village of Tijhza. Finally there is time to explore the medina, souks and square of vibrant Marrakech. A number of changes are being made to this product for travel after the *1st January 2018*. This trip will now run on an alternative itinerary, flying in and out of Marrakech, instead of into Ouarzazate and out of Marrakech. Please click here [1] to view the correct version. [1]

From £479pp

Your tour to Africa includes:

  • Exciting adventure in the Sahara Desert and High Atlas Mountains
  • Included: * All breakfasts and 3 dinners * All Accommodation * Transfers for group flights * Tour leader throughout
  • Food: All breakfasts and 3 dinners included. Moroccan food is, generally speaking, excellent though not particularly varied. Breakfasts usually consist of bread and jam with coffee or tea. Meals eaten out are reasonably priced - kebab and bread cost only about GBP4 (USD7). In main towns it is possible to find very good French and Moroccan restaurants where a meal and French wine will cost anything from GBP20 (USD30) upwards. Generally dinner is likely to cost between GBP5-10 (approx. . USD8-15) depending on what you drink. Local beers, wines and soft drinks are reasonably priced, but you can pay UK prices or more for imported alcohol. Your leader will recommend restaurants for each evening and can help keep costs down by collecting a kitty at the beginning of the week - overall GBP60 (approx. . USD100) pp is enough for the week. Vegetarians can be catered for but there is a fairly limited choice of vegetarian cous cous and tajine or omelettes. This is particularly the case during the more rural or trekking sections of the trip. Please note that if you have any special dietary requirements you should inform the Exodus Office prior to the trip. If you have a specific medical/dietary need (i.e. coeliac or vegan) you may find it helpful to bring some items of food with you from home.
