2 Days Desert Trip from Marrakech to Zagora, exploring Zagora desert, admiring one amazing scenery after another driving along Draa Valley with its fortified Kasbahs and oases dotted with hundreds of thousands of dates palm trees, spending night in desert camp.
DAY 1: MARRAKECH – KASBAH AIT BEN HADOU – ZAGORA (7 HOURS DRIVE)
Your shared budget 2 days desert tour to Zagora departs at 07h00 AM joining a group tour to Zagora through Tizi Ntichka pass ( 2260 m. alt ) driving past different adobe Berber villages, and locals herding their goats.
Upon arrival at Kasbah Ait Ben Hadou, you will have some free time to explore the UNESCO world heritage village, and its famous Kasbah, which has been used as a set for various Biblical epics as well as a backdrop for commercial and modeling photo shoots. Should you wish to join the group on a guided tour, there is an extra fee of €2.00 euros per person for your local guide.
From here, we will continue to Ouarzazate, where we will have lunch at leisure. Early in the afternoon, we will cross the Northeastern parts of the Anti Atlas Mountains to the oasis of Agdz. After a quick stop in the village center, get ready to admire one amazing scenery after another driving along Draa Valley with its fortified Kasbahs and oases dotted with hundreds of thousands of dates palm trees. Draa Valley hosts the largest palm tree plantation in Morocco.
Upon arrival at the Zagora desert late in the afternoon, we meet our camel caravans, and our camel trekking adventure will begin through the sand dunes while assisting to an amazing sunset for about an hour.
Just before it gets dark, we drive our camels to our Berber desert camp nestled in the middle of nowhere.
Dinner will be served tonight under the stars while the local Berbers entertain us with their drums. Feel free to learn about the star’s constellation or just enjoy the silence of the desert under the crystal clear skies.
PS: Should you wish to stay at a comfortable camp with hot showers, there is a supplement of 14,00 Euros per person.
