Excursions

Discover the wonders of travelling into the desert. We organize excursions to Tinfou, M’hamid, the Chigaga dunes, the Erg Lihoudi dunes and The Zaouïa Nasiriyya – an ancient Sufi order founded in 1603 whose library is home to numerous ancient manuscripts and pottery workshops that produce a very special green faience.

4×4 or Camel?
Most excursions can be done in a day or two but we can organize trips to up to 15 days. Depending on the size of your group and your agenda, you can choose to travel by 4×4, or if you want to enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient caravans, by camel. Prices are tailored according to the itinerary.
Luggage can be safely left at the hostel, we take care of it all. Chez Ali is at your service.

Itinerary for a 1 day / 1 night tour
Departure from the hostel at 09h. At 18 km from Zagora lies Tamgroute, where you can visit the ancient Koranic Library, the underground kasbah and local pottery workshops. The excursion continues to Mhamid where on arrival lunch is served. In the afternoon the trip is continued on camel back into the Erg Lhniti Dunes where we set up camp and spend the night under the stars, while dining and enjoying some local music. The next day one can wake up early to watch the sun rise.
After breakfast the excursion returns to Mhamid on camel and later by road back to Zagora.
