Casablanca to Marrakech, Sahara Desert, Fes and Chefchaouen

 

 

The Desert Escapades 12 day tour gives us the opportunity to show you some of the greatest highlights of our amazing country, from the most beautiful of our historic cities to the awe inspiring desert landscape. The drives in between are an integral part of the experience and at every turn in the road you will see sights to take your breath away, from earthen villages which seem to grow organically from the land to lush green valleys which follow the course of the rivers as they wind their way through the mountains and gorges.
