If you're in Marrakech for longer than a weekend break, there is nothing more authentic than a desert trip where you spend the night in a traditional Berber tent.

If you're in Marrakech for longer than a weekend break, there is nothing more authentic than a desert trip where you spend the night in a traditional Berber tent.

2 Day Zagora Desert Trip

Day 1:  Ait Ben Haddou - Draâ Valley - Zagora

On the first day we leave Marrakech behind at 8 am, on the road to Zagora. On the way we pass through the Tizi-N-Tichka mountain pass, a road which crosses the High Atlas 2260 metres up, and from where various Berber villages can be seen.

Having made a brief stop at the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, we continue on the way to Zagora, crossing the Anti Atlas and seeing the Berber village of Agdez, the Draâ Valley and its palm grove, the last sign of vegetation before entering the desert.

The tour arrives in Zagora with enough time to ride a camel and enjoy the desert sunset, and having eaten a traditional dinner we spend the night in an authentic Berber tent.

Day 2: Zagora - Draâ Valley - Ouarzazate

Waking up early on day 2 to enjoy an unmissable sight: daybreak in the desert. After the sun has risen, and having eaten a good breakfast, we return to Zagora by camel to continue the excursion (depending on the type of camp, your breakfast and shower might be before the camel ride). 

Once again we pass through the Draâ Valley and Agdez to arrive at Ouarzazate, where we will visit the Taourit Kasbah.

In the afternoon we leave back on the road to Marrakech. You may eat in Ouarzazate or on the road.

The tour arrives back in Marrakech in the late afternoon. 

Accommodation

Our camp has more home comforts than you would expect from a desert tent, including shared baths and showers. The tents have a capacity of up to 5 people, but you will not have to share the tent with strangers: we offer a tent per couple.

Pickup

If you're staying in the Medina, you'll need to go to the Café de France, located in Jemaa el Fna Square. If you're staying outside the Medina, we'll pick you up free of charge from your hotel or riad. If your hotel is located outside Marrakech, the pickup service will be subject to an extra charge depending on the distance.

Private Tours

If you want to do this tour privately with your partner, family or group of friends, you can book our private trip to the desert.

More than 2 days?

If you have more than 2 days, why not take a look at one of our slightly longer desert excursions to the Merzouga desert.

3 Day Merzouga Desert Trip.

4 Day Merzouga Desert Trip.
