5 days desert tour from Marrakech

Visit Morocco and pass shortly, then spend 2 or 3 nights in the Sahara desert and discover the charm of the kasbahs, the Berber villages and discover the daily life of the Berbers. This is also ideal for those of you who fly to Marrakesh and depart from Marrakesh. The trip can be done in 3 nights and 4 days, but we recommend taking at least 4 nights and 5 days desert tour so you can enjoy the trip and the scene.
