Want to immerse yourself Moroccan culture, ride camels deep into the Sahara Desert, and experience the unspeakable beauty of sleeping under a billion shining stars? Here’s your chance.
Join us on this adventure as we journey from Marrakech and descend through the Atlas Mountains to explore traditional Berber culture and the Sahara Desert, including the lunar, rocky landscape of Zagora, the mountainous dunes of Erg Chebbi and Merzouga, and the Dades and Todra Gorges.
We’ll spend two nights in a traditional Moroccan riad in Marrakech (the nights before and after the Sahara Desert trio), where you’ll have ample time to explore the bustling souks of the medina… but be prepared. The vibrancy of Marrakech has a tendency to shock all of the senses. The sounds of tradesmen at work, the aroma of spices and tinctures, and the kaleidoscope of rugs, scarves, and beautiful wares make the experience both thrilling and exhausting.
We spent our 2016 Thanksgiving in Marrakech and we’re excited to return & share the experience of a lifetime with more GlobeKickers.
This is a 6 day & 5 night adventure. We’ll fly into Marrakech and spend our first night in a riad in the medina near the heart of the city. GlobeKick will provide transportation from the airport to the accommodations in the medina. GlobeKickers will be free to connect and explore the city on their own that evening.
The following morning, GlobeKick will provide transportation to the Sahara Desert. Getting to the Sahara is roughly a 7 hour trek from Marrakech so we’ll leave early in the morning. We’ll spend the next 3 days descending through the Atlas Mountains, experiencing traditional Berber culture and exploring multiple parts of the Sahara Desert – camel trekking into the desert at sunset to sleep in pre-arranged camps under the stars.
On the last day, we’ll return to Marrakech where we’ll spend our final evening in the medina before parting ways in the morning.

One of the best parts of travel is dissolving the ignorance that exists between people of different cultures. Morocco has extensive history, vibrant culture, and incredible people. GlobeKick has been working closely with Moroccan locals for the last few years and you’ll soon come to understand why. The people are warm, loyal and accepting… and we’re excited to share their culture with more travelers.
