You will soon come across the first real town of the Middle Atlas, Azrou, an important market center for the regions Berber tribes that is located at a major junction of mountain routes. At Midelt, the Middle Atlases give way to the High Atlas Mountains, whose peaks are visible through the haze, soaring to over 12,000 feet.

You will then continue to Erfoud, one of the most delightful southern regions consisting of a dry, red belt of desert with a sudden drop into the lush valley of Ziz, with copious date palm groves and flowing streams. Your tents will be pitched and your camels are saddled over the dunes of Merzouga.

With its indescribable beauty, watching the sun as it rises over the spectacular Merzouga dunes is an experience that should not be missed. Afterward, you will eat breakfast with the Toaregs, Your camels will be ready and your caravan will proceed to khamliya, passing by the enticing oases and enjoying the beautiful landscape. Camp will be set for you and dinner will be prepared in a nomadic fashion. After dinner, there will be some drumming and tales of the nomads narrated from oral tradition as you sit around a campfire under the starry skies.

After breakfast, your caravan will depart for Taouz in the morning, traversing through a desert land scape unique to this region to reach fertile, green lands enclosed by hedgerows of Persian rose bushes and surrounded by date palm groves. You will stop for lunch by the banks of the Ziz river, and continue onward to the oasis of Taouz. You will conclude your day with dinner in a local family's Kasbah, followed by dance and Sufi storytelling.
