Day 3: Goulmim to Taidalt
This morning, we ride through the oasis of Tighmert out in the big desert. Soon we will be in the endless plain, where we can canter. In the sandy ground little bushes are growing. After the first rain, in winter, they will bloom and the whole plain will be covered by rose and white flowers. We will stop for lunch on the way. As we get closer to our destination for the night, more and more Acacia trees are growing and the ground gets sandier. In the evening, we will reach the village of Taidalt where we will camp under some Acacia trees.

Day 4: Taidalt to Green Valley
Today we ride across a big plain, but we can already see the mountains coming closer. As we get closer to the mountains, more stones appear on the ground. Big herds of sheep and goat try to find something to graze on, under the Acacia trees. At one point, the plain narrows down and the mountains appear bigger than before. We follow a pathway in a valley. The empty riverbed beside shows us that water is coming down during heavy rain pours, digging little gorges in the mountains. Maybe we will see a lonely camel herd going the same way as we are, through the brown and black mountains. Here and there, we can see some wells that provide water to the nomads and their herds. In the afternoon we continue following the valley. Suddenly a green plain appear in front of us. Here, there is enough water to irrigate, so some farmers started growing crops.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping


Day 5: Green Valley to Desert
About 7 km from our camp, we will find Aouina Torkos: a very lonely place. No fields nor trees are found here, but in the village you can find a few people and everything you need to cook a delicious meal. This is the last possibility to find food for the next 150 kilometers! The first 10 kilometers after the village are very stony but still some Acacia trees are growing here. In the distance, we can see a new mountain chain. As we come closer, suddenly the ground changes in fine sand. The mostly white plain invites us for a long gallop. A lonely house with a well will be a good picnic place. In the afternoon we continue riding across the plain. Tonight, we camp in the middle of the desert.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping


Day 6: Following the Draa River
This morning we continue our ride across the deserted plain. From time to time we see some Acacia trees, but there are no people nor animals. After some time, we will cross over the mountain chain. In the valley below, we find an old ruined village. The valley follows a gorge to the next big plain. There we will find an empty river bed: the river Draa. However, water runs here only after heavy rains. Despite this, mimosa and Acacia trees are growing in the river bed. We might meet a Camel herd and its shepherd. A long time ago, the river Draa was where Morocco was fighting against the Polisario and the Algerian.
At some point, a forest of Acacia trees appears in front of us and we seem to be surrounded by mountains. This will be our camping spot for the night.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7: Across the mountains
Today, we will cross over the mountains. A small but very long wall can be seen over the mountains. This is a border between 2 enemies Berber tribes. When crossing stony valleys, we can see some cacti. Eventually, we reach a plain with a small spring and some palm trees.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8: Ride to Tantan
Our destination for the day is Tantan, 30 kilometers away. Riding on hilly paths we have a few opportunities to canter. Along the way, we find some lonely springs. Tonight, the horses will stay about 2 kilometers outside of Tantan, by the government well. All the local nomads come here to water their camel herds. From there, we will drive to Tantan, where we will have dinner and stay in a hotel.

Time to get back in the saddle. We gallop over a large plain and meet the river Draa once again. Here some water can be found but it is usually low and muddy. We find a place to cross to the other bank. Then, we continue on sandy paths to our picnic spot. After lunch, we continue to follow the river Draa. Many birds and sometimes also camels can be seen. Later on, we will leave the river and ride into the sand dunes to find our camp on a little hill.
