2 Days & 1 night …
350 kms away from Marrakech, after crossing two mountain passes as different from each other as Tizi’n’Tichka and the lunar landscapes of Tizi Tinifift, Zagora is a small provincial town which marks the beginning of the desert. A few kilometers more and the first dunes give an advance of the Sahara and the austerity of eerie landscapes which only initiates are able to discover on their own. With the purpose of not losing sight of ancient traditions, camels and cameleers will be awaiting us for a trek into the sands…first steps after the track of the ‘Blue men’! Evening in bivouac, around the bonfire, and night under the stars… solitude guaranteed!
