We're planning a trip to Morocco from December 20th to the 29th (flight in the morning) so there will be just 8 full days.
We're hiring a car in Marrakesh and planning to go to Merzouga and back. What is the best itinerary? We were thinking to do the first night in Marrakesh then spend the night in Ait Benhaddou, then head to the dades (or maybe todra?) and also spend the night there, then Merzouga and maybe spend two nights. We've already booked some places till Merzouga but we want to leave couple nights undecided and maybe spend the last two nights (27, 28 as we're leaving in the morning of the 29th) in Marrakech again.
What is the best itinerary especially on the way back? is it faisible to go to essaouira at that point (going through Taroundant) or maybe just leave it for another trip? what are the best stops to make from merzouga on the way back? draa valley? zagora?
Is the tizi'n tickla pass a heart-attack road or is it faisible?
we want to see landscapes and visit places not just a drive-all-the time trip.
What do you suggest?
Sorry for the too many questions.
