About Souks & Sahara
A city break & desert adventure combined; let us whisk you away to the Sahara for two nights under the stars (or in luxury Bedouin tents).
Activity code: MOHO03
Duration: 7 Days
START / FINISH - Marrakech.
The Souks and Sahara Adventure is a 'not-to-be-missed' holiday on which you experience the incredible variety of Morocco. This trip combines the fabulous and magical city of Marrakech, the stark beauty of the High Atlas Mountains and the incredible panoramic views and solitude of the real Sahara. This is a quite unique and deluxe holiday - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This Marrakech and the desert itinerary is a tried and trusted holiday in Morocco for couples and families looking for something a little different in just one week (although extra nights to spend in the mountains or at the coast, e.g. Essaouira, are also popular). We include door-to-door private transfers, two nights in two different, incredible locations in the true Sahara and some great off the beaten track scenery in between.
Accommodation: the riads and small hotels in Marrakech in this itinerary are our personal choice in each category, all of which offer quality accommodation. You may prefer a small and friendly option or one of the luxury, boutique properties, (please do not hesitate to request alternative hotels).
Transport: to take the stress out of arriving and departing we offer a private airport transfer service. The journey between Marrakech and the desert is done in a comfortable air-conditioned 4WD vehicle with an experienced and friendly English-speaking driver who will, where possible, travel at your pace and allow you to enjoy the scenery along the way.
Extra Information: We are able, through our local agency, to book activities and additional sightseeing, particularly in Marrakech - such as hiking, cookery classes, golf, quad biking, etc.
Flights are available to book through us with a wide range of airlines, from various UK airports. If we book your flights this means that your holiday will be fully ATOL protected.
NB. Extra nights in Marrakech or in the High Atlas or in Essaouira available on request.

"Seeing the Sahara and experiencing sunset in this magical and barren place. Our guide for the Marrakech walking tour was lovely and knowledgeable and showed up some truly wonderful sites. Our guide/driver down to the Sahara, Wadii, was simply amazing. His humour and friendliness were infectious and every moment of the trip was pure magic. I would recommend him a million times over for any kind of trip in Morocco, be it a desert adventure or trip around Marrakech."

"Marrakech was magnificent, magical and mad! It was one of the most interesting and delightful holidays we have ever had as a couple....if you are looking for a shake-up of the senses and experiencing stark differences, from the madness in Marrakech to the silence in the Sahara to the breath-taking mountain top hotel, then this trip is for you."

"Thank you for your help in organising this holiday, we had a fantastic time! The desert tour and camel trek was a real highlight, and the riad in Marrakech was perfect - beautiful rooms and helpful staff. All the logistics ran smoothly and the local guides were very good (although the stop in Tamagroute was not so interesting). Overall a great experience and I will contact you if we decide to visit any of the other destinations offered by RTW."

"Just to say a huge thank you to you all for arranging such an amazing holiday. The riad was beautiful and the staff all so kind. Our trip to the Sahara was fantastic and we were royally looked after - were the only couple at both camps so had very good care with our own personal team to look after us! The transfers, travel and activities all went seamlessly and we would thoroughly recommend you."
