Interesting Places On Your Itinerary

You will pass by a lots of Berber villages during your tour. This will make you discover an other aspect of Morocco.

Tamegroute (Tamgrout) is a village in the south of Morocco, in the valley of the Draa River. It has a history as an important center of learning and religion through its famous Sufi zawiya, historical center of the Nasiriyya Sufi order, one of the most influential - and at one time one of the largest - Sufi orders in the Islamic world. Tamegroute's green pottery is also very well known.

The founders of the religious brotherhood Nasiriyya wanted to raise the status of the village of Tamegroute to that of a 'Medina', that is to say to make it a city. They assembled the merchants and craftsmen that they had brought from Fes, a city that enjoyed good relations with Tamegroute at the time. However, today Tamegroute is a little village again, but the pottery has become its main characteristic. Except for a few ochre shades, a green glaze is the dominant colour in pottery from Tamegroute. As with Fes Zelliges, and even more so, the ancient techniques give the glaze infinite variations.

M'Hamid El Ghizlane (plain of gazelles) is a small oasis town in southern Morocco (Zagora Province in the Drâa-Tafilalet Region) with about 7500 inhabitants.
A hamada is a type of desert landscape consisting of high, largely barren, hard, rocky plateaus, with very little sand because this has been removed by deflation

Oum Lâalag is an oasis located 50 kilometers southwest of M'Hamid El Ghizlane in Morocco at the old trade route to Timbuktu.

The oasis is approximately 15 hectares in size and is presumed holy by the nomads. According to local beliefs, a fairy lives at its source. A bivouac camp site is available in the oasis, which offers ecologically sustainable tourism. The high dunes of Erg Chegaga can be reached by camel or 4x4 off-road vehicles.

The oasis is part of the 123,000-hectare Iriqui National Park, which was set up in 1994. In its vicinity live houbara bustards, ostriches, Barbary sheep, dorcas gazelles, oryxes and hyenas.

Erg Chegaga (or Chigaga) is one of two major dunes of the Sahara in Morocco, the other being the Erg Chebbi of Merzouga.

This dune is located in the Souss-Massa-Draa area and is located about 60 km west of the rural town of M'Hamid El Ghizlane, itself located about 98 km south of the town of Zagora. With a length of approximately 40 km to 15 km wide, some dunes around a height of 360 m (170 m more than Erg Chebbi), it is the largest and wildest of Morocco.

Because it is relatively difficult to access – it is only accessible by 4x4, camel or on foot – Erg Chigaga remains as untouched as Erg Chebbi, which can make for a memorable desert experience.
