Step by Step

If you have an adventurous spirit, sign up for this 2-day trip to the Zagora desert from Marrakech, 7 hours away. The tour includes various activities such as a camel ride, camping in a Berber settlement or the chance to see the sights of Morocco's Atlas Mountains.

An expert guide will accompany you at all times and provide you with interesting facts about the desert. You will also be provided with transport to and from the hotel, breakfast, dinner and accommodation. You will visit the city of Ait Ben Haddou and the beautiful Ouarzazate. The groups participating in the excursion will be around 15 people in order to optimise the experience.

Instead of dunes, your journey through the Zagora desert will take you through breathtaking mountain scenery and panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, a mountain range that runs through the whole of northwest Africa. You'll come across several villages where you'll see local Berber handicrafts and valleys of palm groves everywhere.

One of the most striking locations in Zagora is the oldest kasbah in southeastern Morocco,Ait Ben Haddou. You'll probably recognise it, as it was a filming location for blockbuster movies and series such as Gladiator and Game of Thrones. You'll also stop in the city of Ouarzazate, also known as the 'Hollywood of Africa', as there are several film studios here.

This experience immerses you in the real, everyday life of one of Morocco's most important deserts. Here you will see some of the most beautiful sunsets, as well as try a night's sleep in the desert under a star-studded sky.
