Dear fellow TAers,
I am posing a question after poring over a lot of older and newer threads related to taking desert trips along this route and other routes. My wife has two concerns; one is that the Fez to Marrakech route is prone to flooding in the early stage (as documented on a Japanese TV travel documentary) and also that we wouldn't have enough time to do the journey comfortably if doing a 3 day/2 night trip.
The other option is to travel to Marrakech by train and go to the desert on a 3 day/2 night package. I suggested if she was worried about the time and possible flood delays doing a Fez to Marrakech trip of 4 days/3 nights would be better, though sadly this would leave us little time in Marrakech. Even with her plan, we wouldn't have much time there, as we would be arriving in Marrakech on March 25th around 4pm, and then returning to Marrakech on the 28th from our desert trip (26th-28th) some time in the evening.
My wife was the main one to propose this trip to Morocco and has her heart set on a desert trip. With that in mind, considering doing a desert trip on on a later trip to Morocco is unthinkable. Keep in mind we have already booked flights into and out of Morocco as we have another destination we're visiting and a limited time for this trip due to a limited number of reasonably priced flights from Japan to Paris (hence the dates are fixed for arrival in Paris and departure back to Japan).
With these facts in mind, can anyone help clarify which would be a better plan for the desert trip and perhaps help me allay my wife's worries?
