day 3: After breakfast, take a spectacular drive across the Tizi N'tichka col, the highest pass in Northern Africa, and on to Morocco's best known Kasbah at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ait Benhaddou. After lunch, head on to Ouarzazate, known as the 'place of no noise'. Overnight in Ouarzazate Hotel; breakfast and dinner provided.
