Morocco: 4x4 Exploration - 5 Days
Explore the epic sand dunes of Morocco by 4x4
Join us on an adventure to explore the astonishing and majestic remote sand dunes of Morocco, all from the comfort of your 4x4 vehicle, private guide and driver.
Taking a Morocco desert tour of 5 days, you will have far more choice available on how to structure the tour and manage the driving distances. Season-dependent, take one or two nights at the Berber camp with various options for overnight points en-route to or from the desert . This does not change the overall driving route.
With two nights at camp, allow yourself a full day in the desert to enjoy a longer camel-trek or hike with picnic lunch. Alternatively, with two nights en-route at guest houses (and one night at the camp), enjoy guided short walks in the palm oases and Atlas mountain foothills which we arrange via your guest house teams.
