This amazing 4-day quad expedition brings you to the highest dunes, the 300m (or 980ft) Erg Chigaga, through a Berber village of Foum Zguid. Because of its relatively difficult accessibility, quieter dunes and more spaced-out camps, this short desert experience is much more tranquil and is truly a memorable experience to arrive here in your quad.

Day 1: Ait Ben Haddou – Foum Zguid (190 km)

We depart Ait Ben Haddou in our quads on a desert track to the small Berber village in the desert town of Foum Zguid. On the way, you will enjoy the beautiful traditional clay village panorama and feel like back in time. We will stay in a local guesthouse for the night.

Day 2: Foum Zguid – Erg Chigaga (90 km)

From Foum Zguid, we continue our quad journey to Erg Chigaga. With a length of approximately 40 km to 15 km wide, it is the largest and wildest dune of Morocco. Because it is relatively difficult to access, it is truly a memorable experience to arrive here in your quad. Enjoy having dinner in tranquility and sleeping under million of stars at our desert tents.

 

Day 3: Erg Chigaga – Erg Lihoudi (65 km)

After breakfast, we leave the solitude around Erg Chigaga and continue in our quads to the 100m-high Erg Lihoudi (Dunes of the Jews), located 8 km northeast of M’Hamid. Feel the freedom of wandering around these dunes. We stay one more night in the desert tents.

From M’Hamid, we will drive the final stretch on desert track to Zagora. This is where the original, iconic ‘Tombouctou, 52 jours’ (Timbuktu, 52 days) sign , and where caravans pass through.

From Zagora, we will take a taxi with you to any destinations you desired. Please contact us for advice. (Dinner not included)
