Zagora-Morocco

Get a real desert experience in Zagora desert located in Morocco on this 2-day private guided tour. Visit the Kasbahs, local villages, filming sites of movies like 'Lawrence of Arabia' and 'Gladiator' while enjoying a desert camp stay at night under the stars.

DAY 01

Marrakech – Ait Ben Haddou – Ouarzazate – Agdez – Zagora

  • Pick-up from your Riad or hotel in Marrakech in a comfortable air-conditioned 4×4 car or minivan. 

  • Drive south-east, crossing many small and dispersed villages on the way. 

  • Reach the chain of the Atlas mountains and the highest pass in the chain Tizi N-Tichka (2,160 m).

  • Stop in one of the terraces in Tichka.

  • Cross several Berber villages again, perched in the mountains and hills. 

  • Arrive at Ouarzazate and visit the beautiful Kasbah of Taourirt (home to former Caid Pacha Glaoui).

  • See the Museum of Cinema as Ouarzazate is a noted film-making location.

  • Drive through the beautiful valleys to reach Agdez and appreciate the view of its palmeraie from a high point. 

  • Have lunch at Kasbah in Tamnougal. The Kasbah has a nice terrace looking at the palm grove and sunny enough to warm up on cold days. 

  • Continue to the city of Zagora, where the camels await at the end of the paved road to take you to the bivouac in the dunes just in time to witness the majestic sunset and take memorable photos. 

  • Gather for a mint tea session to get to know each other.

  • Spend the night in a desert camp after a nice home-made dinner.

  • Gather around the fire to enjoy a session of singing and dancing.

DAY 02

Zagora – Draa valley – Agdez – Ouarzazate – Tizi-N-Ticha – Marrakech

  • Ride the camels back to meet the car at the end of the paved road. 

  • Leave Zagora behind and head straight back to the fortified village of Ait Ben Haddou, where you will have lunch before exploring the site. Seven families still live in the old village of Ait Ben Haddou and the rest have moved to the other side of the valley. This place was a halting station for the caravans travelling along the Ounila Valley. 

  • Take the road back to Marrakech.
