Explore Merzouga desert:
Erg Chebbi, or ‘the little dune,’ is located near Merzouga. They are the largest dunes in Morocco, at 250 meters high, despite their name. According to legend, these imposing dunes are the product of divine retribution imposed on the people of Merzouga, who, while celebrating a festival, refused to welcome a woman and her children who arrived exhausted and died when they tried to enter. Merzouga is the hghighlit of our 2 days desert tour from Fes.
It is also worth noting that it is the nearest big dune desert to both Marrakech and Fez. Other choices for day trips from Marrakech include Zagora and the Agafay desert, but keep in mind that Zagora loses the large dunes of Erg Chebbi and Agafay is merely an arid and desert landscape without sand dunes. Which Merzouga is the most suitable choice.

The Kasbah is a Moroccan fortress. Ait Ben Haddou and other fortresses of this kind are architectural structures made of adobe and mud, topped by defensive towers, in the style of medieval castles. These kasbahs were once large Berber settlements in the Moroccan desert, which were walled and built to protect the homes, crops, and palm groves that grew along their rivers.
These peoples founded large agrarian and mercantile societies with a distinct Islamic vision. Just with our 2 days desert tour from Fes to Marrakech, you will have some time to a short visit to this Kasbah.
