Following breakfast, we will go on a journey to see the southeastern region of Morocco, via the middle Atlas. Our first destination is Ifrane, sometimes referred to as the "Moroccan Switzerland," known for its picturesque landscapes. Continuing our trip, we will make a stop at Azrou, renowned for its expansive cedar forest, which happens to be the biggest in Morocco. Here, we will have the opportunity to observe and interact with Barbary monkeys, a popular attraction in the area. Continuing our journey in a southerly direction, we through many cities, giving us the chance to see the presence of nomadic communities living in tents. Ultimately, our route leads us to the town of Midelt, where we will pause for a midday meal. We will go through the expansive expanse of the elevated desert, observing the gradual transformation of the landscape as subtle indications of the arid environment become apparent upon nearing the urban centre of Er Rachidia or imtghren. The expedition proceeds via the verdant Ziz Valley and the renowned Tafilalet date palm grove, which is recognised for its production of dates. This region serves as the historical birthplace of the Alaouite dynasty, which now holds the position of the governing royal family in Morocco. Upon reaching Merzouga in the late afternoon, guests will be greeted with a refreshing drink of mint tea prior to their check-in at the riad.
