Next, the charming Tamegroute awaits you, a 16th-century gem. Here, you can immerse yourself in local culture by visiting the Koranic school, a unique library, and the enigmatic underground Kasbah. You'll feel the tradition in every corner.

You'll have lunch in Mhamid, and the choice will be yours: a local restaurant or a picnic in the desert, both full of authentic flavors and aromas.

You'll arrive at the emblematic Tamares tree, where a shady spot will welcome you, and your guide will surprise you by preparing a nomadic-style lunch. Imagine the aroma of grilled kebabs and freshly baked bread amidst the vastness of the desert.

After exploring and soaking up the magic of the place, you'll return to the main camp, where another stunning sunset awaits you. The sky is tinged with orange and red hues as the sun sinks behind the dunes.
