Itinerary of 5 Day in Morocco tour Itinerary from Rabat

5 Days Morocco Desert Tour

⇒ Day 1: Rabat » Volubilis » Meknes » Fes

After breakfast at the hotel, your Morocco Itinerary 5 Days from Rabat Starts, but before leaving for Fes, first we pay a short visit to Hassan Tower, the mausoleum of Mohammed V and the historical Kasbah of Oudaya, which is complemented by a medieval-looking little village in Andalusian style. From up here you have a wonderful view of the mouth of the Bou Regreg, the longest river in Morocco. Later we stop again in Volubilis, a Roman settlement from the 3rd century, with its very well-preserved arches, basins, wall remains and mosaics. Afterwards we will visit the predecessor royal city of Fez – Meknès. We will walk around the old fortress walls and see beautiful parks. After a stop for lunch, we will visit the medina. Here you can still discover old palaces and (military) buildings of the then ruler Sultan Moulay Ismail (1672-1727), which survived the severe earthquake in 1755 and were partially rebuilt. Once in Fès, we will transfer you to your accommodation – a traditional riad.

⇒Day 2: Fes » Ifrane  » Cedar Forest » Midelt » Ziz Valley » Merzouga

Today we leave early. A long road to Merzouga lies ahead of us. On the way we will pass through areas that look more like Europe than the desert country of Morocco due to their lush vegetation. The road leads us further up and through the Moroccan Switzerland. It is green (or white in winter). The houses in adapted alpine style don’t seem to belong here. Even cows are not rare here (but camels are). The highlight will be the drive through the Ifrane National Park with one of the largest Moroccan cedar forests. If we are lucky, we will meet the famous Barbary macaques that have migrated as far as Gibraltar.

Feeding is allowed here, but still caution is advised. We cross the Atlas Mountains again – the Middle Atlas – and stop not only for a snack, but also for short breathers at breathtaking viewpoints. Then we descend again on the other side of the mountains to Erfoud / Merzouga. In Erfoud we will stop at a manufactory, which is making articles of use and jewelry out of the regional fossil finds. Afterwards we will bring you to your hotel or desert camp directly at the edge of the Sahara. Behind your hotel the first golden sand dunes are already rising. A camel ride to the sunset over the dunes awaits you. Be sure to bring your camera to capture this special moment.

⇒Day 3: Merzouga  Desert Excursion (Visit Nomads, Gnawa, Mefiss,)

Today, after an extensive Moroccan breakfast with olives, egg dishes in the tajine, fresh still warm bread and delicious desserts, we continue the Morocco Itinerary 5 Days from Rabat by 4×4. We will drive you straight through the dunes, show you the vast plains famous for their fossil finds, the old eyeliner coal mines. We pay a visit to the Gnawa musicians, where drum rhythms from ancient times are still played, and gain insight into their history.

You will drink tea with real nomads under their traditional tent, made of hand-woven dark wool. And discover the taste of Berber cuisine in a regional restaurant with a Madfouna, the famous Berber pizza, which can also be baked on the fire. The afternoon is yours again. Time to relax or explore the sand dunes on your own. The hotel will be happy to provide you with a surfboard if you want to try your luck. Dinner and overnight at the camp or hotel.

⇒Day 4: Merzouga » Rissani  » Todgha Gorges » Bomalen Dades

We will come to pick you up after your leisurely breakfast. We continue towards Bomalen Dades. Now we are already on the road of 1000 Kasbahs – a region that gives an idea of how important and sometimes hotly contested the former trade route along the river oases was. To the right and to the left, our path is lined with half-ruined castles (kasbahs) or old settlements. We encounter bizarre rock formations and wide oasis valleys.

First, we stop at a unique gorge: The Todgha Gorge – at 1550 m.a.s.l. It is located at the foothills of the High Atlas and begins in the Berber town of Tinghir. Impressive, how the rock walls in this narrow gorge with the bubbling, crystal clear water rises far up! We will also pay a short visit to the Dades Gorge before taking you to your accommodation in Bomalen  Dades.

⇒ Day 5: Boamlen Dades » Ouarzazate » Ait Benhaddou » Tizi n’tichka » Marrakech

Today we drive back to Marrakech. But until then, there is still much to discover. We drive through the Valley of the Roses. Here, the local offerings will make the hearts of herbal enthusiasts beat faster. Rose perfume. Soap. Body cream. Even the precious essential oil can be purchased here at a reasonable price. We continue to Ouarzazate, the Moroccan film metropolis. Fittingly, our next stop is the “Ksar Aît Benhaddou” (Ksar = settlement).

This enchanting still original place in old clay construction has already served as a backdrop for many well-known films (most recently “The Game of Thrones”). Now it goes again high up over the Atlas Mountains. At the 2260 m high Tizi-n-Tichka (Tizi (Berber) = pass) we stop and enjoy the breathtaking panorama, before we descend again to the plain to Marrakech. Depending on your departure time, we will take you directly to your hotel/riad. end of our Morocco Itinerary 5 Days from Rabat.

FAQ of this Morocco Itinerary 5 Days from Rabat?

5 Days in Morocco

is it Morocco safe?

Don’t get surprised if we said Yes!! Morocco is totally a safe country and one of the most powerful intelligence apparatuses in the world. The Moroccan government has taken a great and very good step to spread safety such as increasing police presence in tourist areas and this we have remarked in every city in Morocco Also, in every street, you will find at least two policemen. As a result, the country’s security forces have been successful in preventing terrorist attacks. As we are a travel agency, we advise our customers to avoid as much as possible narrow streets during the night, avoid large crowds and keep valuables secure, and not to talk with strangers unless are a seller, guide, driver, or a coffee and restaurant waiter. By following the pieces of advice above you will enjoy your stay in Morocco with peace of mind.

Travel to Morocco as solo!

Traveling to Morocco as a solo. It might be difficult and impossible in your mind because you believe that it’s an African country there is only desert?? and it’s not safe and it is very poor and and… But the fact is completely different. By traveling with us you will get a private car, a private driver’s guide. And a private room or tent in the Sahara Desert. traveling solo can be an exciting and rewarding experience. However, you will be more flexible to do what you want without any obstructions. Our driver guide will be with you during the whole trip to make sure that you are enjoying, safe and comfortable.

In big cities like Marrakech and Fes, you will have a local tour guide who will lead you safely as well and show you his city’s historical places with an open heart. I think we have said everything about traveling solo and bear in mind that you are not the first or the last who will travel alone. With our proper planning and awareness, a solo trip with Morocco itinerary is a memorable adventure.

The Overnight in the Camp

According to our guests’ reviews 99% of them they consider the night of the desert camp in Sahara Desert as the highlight of their trip. why?? what makes it special and recommended? Well to answer this question we should talk about the reasons!! First, when our customers arrive Merzouga Desert, they find the camels waiting to carry them across the dunes. Along the way a stop will be made in order to catch a magical sunset over the dunes then later they continue to reach the desert camp where our clients get surprised with the quality of their tent which includes a private bathroom, and a very clean and comfortable bed. Additionally, a delicious dinner with Berber music around the fire under a fully open sky of stars it’s the reason that makes the trip unforgettable. So don’t miss to visit the Sahara Desert during your stay in Morocco.

Alcohol in Morocco!

Morocco considers as an Islamic Country with more than 99 percent of the population is Sunni Muslim. But this doesn’t prevent of producing it and selling it. Here are some Moroccan beers and wines; (Casablanca, Stork, Flag, Heineken). If you are wondering where to buy some alcohol, that easy because many licensed shops are selling it. Such as some Hotels, some Restaurants, Bars, or Carrefour (Supermarket). However, drinking alcohol in the streets for tourists is breaking the law and is completely forbidden and can lead to arrest. So please be careful where you drink you are in a Muslim country.

What to bring with you?

while you are reading this article, so you are interested in travelling to Morocco. But you are lost, and you don’t know what to bring exactly. We will talk only about the important things Firstly, check your passport if its valid to travel or not, don’t forget your credit cards, Cash, Flight info, Phone, Charger, Suitcase, and some Medicine because Morocco don’t have the best Quality ones. However, bring body sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, lip balm are very helpful especially in the desert where the weather is dry. Last thing you shouldn’t forget is a secure Day Bag it’s a great ideal to protect your stuff when you venture into public places like souks (Markets).

Summer and autumn Cloths: Oversize T-shirts, short pants, light trousers, a Dress for women, a bathing suit if you want to swim, we advise comfortable shoes for walking, and a scarf to cover your hair and shoulders but if you don’t have one no worries you can buy one in Morocco. Also, a light jacket is very important because some places are a bit cold even in the summertime. To protect yourself from the strong sun we advise you to bring a Cap. Additionally, don’t forget flip-flops.

winter and spring Cloths: Our suggestions are a warm Jacket for the nights and early mornings, long pants (Jeans), if you have fleece, is perfect idea. Also, T-shirt sometimes during the day it gets sunny and warm. Shoes at least two types, Scarf, skirts, is ok, and tunics.

The Wi-fi & SIM Card in Morocco?

If you are wondering how to get the internet in Morocco and get connected with the world it’s simple and super easy. In the airport where you land, there are shops selling SIM cards you just have to buy one and put some Balance on it, and then you get the internet. I think you still didn’t understand in Morocco each shop (Grocer) sells SIM cards and balances. So, you need to buy both. SIM Card costs from 1.5 euro to a maximum of 2.5 euro. For the balance from 0.50 cents to 20 euro, it depends on how much you want:

100 MG costs 0.50 cents available for one day – 1GB costs 1 Euro available for 3 Days – 2GB costs 2 euro available for 1 week – 5GB costs 5 euro and is available for one Month, and 10GB costs 10 Euro. (The best company is Maroc Telcom). Additionally, Wi-Fi is available in every coffee, restaurant, Riad, and Hotel.

What languages Moroccans speaks?

Morocco is an Amazigh country (Berber) before being an Arabic country. How? Why? In Morocco More than 60% speak the Amazigh language for example in the north of the country. There are two main languages spoken (Amazigh and Spanish). in the Middle of the country, you will find people speak Arabic and Amazigh, and in the southeast Amazigh is spoken, in the west you find Amazigh and Arabic. So, if we come to account it, we realize that Amazigh people are more spread in Morocco. And to confirm this the king of Morocco Mohamed 6 is of Amazigh origin. Additionally, in Morocco, you will find people speak, other languages like French due to the French colonial. English because a lot they find it easy to learn, Moreover Spanish due to geographical proximity.

Can I use euro or Dollar in Morocco?

Most Merchants in Souks (Market) are accepting £$ and euro instead of the local Currency (MAD). But it’s going to be difficult for you in other places such as Restaurants, and Coffees because the majority of them are accepting only MAD. Our advice is to exchange your money in trusted offices. Like banks or other shops and don’t never give your money to strangers for exchange in the streets.
