Itinerary:

About an hour’s drive from Marrakech lies Agafay Desert. A rocky, hilly barren and sandstone ground at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains. Agafay desert day trip is increasingly becoming a popular day trip from Marrakech.

Start off your Agafay desert day trip by a departure in the morning from your accommodation in a 4×4 air-conditioned and comfortable car. The road to Agafay is shaded by green lush, olive trees, and orange orchards and passes through many beautiful Berber villages.

Shortly after, we go off-track through varying features of Agafay; stone desert, dry and moon-like ground, green oases, and barren hills with wonderful views of the often snow-topped Atlas Mountains.

You can take a walk in the calm and peaceful setting, hike to the top of the hills to enjoy magical views of the Atlas Mountains, and sip a glass of traditional mint tea and taste Moroccan biscuits.

Lunch will be served inside the tent or outside overlooking the hills and the mountains.

Later on, there will be an opportunity to go on the long talked about sunset camel ride. Enjoy the views of the mountains and take photos of your party riding camels with the mountains and the sunset in the background.

We go off-road along the green oases and flocks of sheep searching for grass. Arrive at the dam of Lalla Takerkoust, which supplies Marrakesh with water and electricity. We drive along the beautiful lake, the vivid valleys, and Tahnouete village before arriving back at Marrakech in the afternoon, which in turn marks the end of your Agafay desert day trip
