The Southern Unspoiled Morocco Road

This is probably the most exclusive journey across Morocco.

In solitude and in total privacy traverse the exotic and constantly shifting landscape of Northern Africa. In fully equipped 4×4 vehicles and in the best company of highly trained butlers throughout the journey, follow the 5 stages along the oasis of southern Morocco rhythmically combined with different rustic-chic stagings set in the most remote corners. 

This trip is designed for a group of a maximum of 6 persons and organized in total exclusivity and privacy – there are no other clients at the same time nor at the same place during the first four nights, in order to live a unique mind blowing experience.

Take part in a dream expedition forged through the extreme south Morocco.

Day 3

Argan Valley - Tighmert's Palm Grove

TIGHMERT'S PALM GROVE

Nestled in the middle of a lush palm grove outside of the desert village of Tighremet you will make your second stop, where traditional Berber ways of life still remain relatively untouched by tourism. The property is composed of two adobe houses decorated with traditional woodwork, each one with its private living room, an outdoor seating area under a tent and a fully equipped bathroom. It’s all infused with an exquisite rustic-chic flair.

Why not visiting the Berber village of Amtoudi, home to around 300 families, one of its most fascinating aspects, which sets it apart from other oasis settlements, is the ancient grain storage facility, or agadir, perched high up on a hill overlooking the village. It is considered to be both the oldest and most well preserved agadir in North Africa. The access can be hiking along the narrow rocky trail, or you can make the ascent on the back of a mule.

Day 4

Tighmert's Palm Grove - Aoujou

AOUJOU

It is time to wander the winding footpaths of the Akka palm grove before reaching the third home. Near a matriarchal village, this house offers a stopover in a timeless place with a 180° view on the surrounding mountains. Made of the traditional red dry stonewall, the house sits in a women’s village near an ancient hot water spring in Aoujou. It offers a lounge, three bedrooms and three bathrooms with shower, heating, air-conditioning, fireplace, all with a colonial air. But with no doubt, the hotel best feature is the impressive panoramic views over the Aoujou Valley in all directions.

Day 8

Dar Ahlam - Ait Ben Haddou - Marrakech

AIT BEN HADDOU

On your way from Skoura to Marrakech you’ll make a stop at Ait Ben Haddou, located on the lower slopes of the soaring Atlas Mountains. A fortified village made from traditional mud brick, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most famous ksars in the region, and one of the best examples of typical southern Moroccan architecture. This giant sand castle-like structure was built around the 17th century, and today there are still several families who live there. Depending on the time available, we’ll walk up through the village, marvelling at the defense towers, gateways and motifs carved into the clay bricks. Time for lunch in the area, and time to continue our road through Tizi n’Tichka mountain pass before reaching Marrakech.

Tonight, free evening (we will assist you in your plans).
