Then it's off to the cedar forest, North Africa's biggest and home to barbary monkies, where we may feed and photograph them. We proceed south through Berber settlements and farmland, passing nomadic shepherds and their animals scattered over the landscape. At the middle of the journey, we stop in Midelt for lunch. Our first day of our 5-day Fez Marrakech desert trip will take us via Talghmt mountain, then to Ziz gorge, where we'll pause for panoramic views of the spectacular hidden oasis of Ziz valley, which is filled with palm trees and mud settlements, before continuing on to the Sahara desert.

Later, we'll go to the town of Khamlia, which is home to black Berbers descended from Sudan and Mali... We'll get the opportunity to hear their Gnaoua music and eat lunch in town.
