7 Nights: High Atlas/Sahara (elsewhere?) Recommendations?

Hi--

I am planning to rent a car in Marrakech and drive myself into the High Atlas and then the Sahara. I leave Marrakech the morning of Tuesday May 20, and arrive in Fes Tuesday May 27. So thinking of renting the car in Marrakech, leaving it in Merzouga, and taking the overnight Supratour bus from Merzouga to Fes.

Recommended stops/overnights? Any better general plan?

Thank you! I'm very excited.

Hi, you cannot leave the car in Merzouga because there are not some rent a car company, you can leave it first in Fes.

If you not make some special agree with the company in Marrakech, but it would cost more than normally because they have to go the whole way for to pick up the car and take back to Marrakech.

7 nights is perfect for your trip between those cities, you will see and experience much on the way.

The most common overnight stop - Ouarzazate or Ait BenHaddou, Dades or Todra Gorge, Erg Chebbi, Midelt

Making 21 postings on the same day all basically the same is the EXACT definition of SPAM. One post is enough unless you have something specific to add.
