GOBACKTOURS

This Zagora desert tour allows you to see and explore a lot of Morocco in just 2 days. You’ll have the chance to visit the famous Ait Ben Haddou, the city of Ouarzazate and the Atlas Studios. Zagora is located in the Draa Tafilalet region in the southeast of the country and is famous for its mountains and desert. The part we visit in this Zagora desert tour is closer to Marrakech and is small, but it’s still a really fun experience. You’ll see a gorgeous sunset while you ride your camel to a camp where a nomad haima will be waiting for you. Dinner is served in a big tent and afterwards there’s an authentic Berber party with drums and a bonfire.

DAY 1 – Ait-Ben-Haddou – Zagora Desert Camp

We’ll start our 2 days Marrakech desert tour at 8:00 am sharp. After picking you up in your Riad we’ll drive through the High Atlas and pass the summit of the impressive Tizi n’Tichka. As we continue our way we’ll see several Berber villages and stop in many nice spots to rest and enjoy the breathtaking views. Then we head south until we reach the UNESCO World Heritage, Kasbah Ait-Ben-Haddou, an impressive fortified city that has become a must-see in Morocco.

After lunch in town we’ll continue making strategic stops along the way to take nice pictures until we arrive to Zagora. There we change our way of transportation and you’ll cross the dunes on your camel to catch the beautiful sunset of Zagora desert.

We start the second day of this Zagora desert tour very early in the morning so that we can see the sunrise. After breakfast you’ll ride your camel back to the city and get on your 4X4 vehicle again. Then we’ll head toward the Draa Valley crossing the Anti Atlas to discover the hidden treasures of Ouarzazate. Once there you’ll be able to explore the city and its Cinema Studios. After lunch we’ll visit the Taourirt Kasbah and head back to Marrakech via the High Atlas Mountains.

We say goodbye once we arrive at Marrakech and transfer you safely to your Hotel/Riad.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Zagora desert is small and you won’t find huge dunes and it’s not the immense desert you see on pictures. If this is what you’re looking for then we recommend you visit Merzouga Desert.
