2-day excursion to the Zagora desert


Enjoy a Morocco full of contrasts with this two-day tour. Live the life of an authentic Berber for one night on this journey through the desert of Zagora. Discover the history of the kasbah of Aït Ben Haddou and admire the landscapes of the Draa Valley. Have fun with a dromedary ride through the dunes and spend a unique night in the middle of the desert under a blanket of stars. An experience you will never forget.

Day 1: Ait Ben Haddou - Draa Valley - Zagora

 

We will leave Marrakech at 8 in the morning towards Zagora. On the way we will pass by the Tizi-N-Tichka pass, a road that crosses the High Atlas at 2260 meters high and we will see several Berber villages. After a brief visit to the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou we will continue the road to Zagora. Cross the Anti Altas and we will see the Berber village of Agdez, the Draâ Valley and its palm grove, the last hint of vegetation before entering the desert. We will arrive in Zagora with enough time to ride a camel and enjoy the sunset in the desert.

After a traditional dinner we will spend the night in an authentic Berber haima

Day 2: Zagora - Draa Valley - Ouarzazate - Marrakech

 

This day we will have to get up early to enjoy an unforgettable event: the sunrise in the desert. After the sunrise and a good breakfast, we will return to Zagora by camel to continue the excursion.

Once again we will cross the Draâ Valley and Agdez to reach Ouarzazate, where we will visit the Kasbah Taourirt.

In the afternoon, we will depart to Marrakech. You can eat in Ouarzazate or along the way.

We will arrive in Marrakech between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
