Desert trip 3 nights

Hi,

We are a couple trying to visit the desert from Fes via Merzouga to Marrakech, starting on Monday 5th Nov.

Anybody interested in sharing this excursion to lower costs?

Any advice on tour operators?

Thanks!

While it is short, it isn't impossible:

Day 1-Fez to Merzouga (7 hrs, with really nowhere worthwhile stopping for an extra night). Night in Desert lodge.

Day 2-Visit to Rissani or exploring other surrounds, or relaxing at the hotel. Night in a tented camp.

Day 3-Travel to either Kelaa Mgouna, Dades Gorge, Skoura, Ouarzazate, or Ait Ben Haddou. Over night. (5 hrs driving max)

Day 4-5 hrs or so drive from starting point to Marrakech, over the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass.

People do this all the time.

... with really nowhere worthwhile stopping for an extra night). - but, you miss for example Azrou or have only to fast running after to find monkeys

you come late to Erg Chebbi and forget not that in November it will be dark soon and camel trek start at around 16.00, so night lodge can be done only at some accommodation

From Rissani to Ouarzazate it is around 6 hours, not much time for to visit properly even if only Dades

So everything is possible of course, but stressful only without to enjoy really.
